HOW TO AFFIX WALL MOUNT TO THE WALL

As for what to use to affix the wall mount to the wall -- we recommend simple black or grey drywall screws. The larger the wall mount, the larger the screws should be.

The dark color will blend into the black color of the wall mount. This shouldn't matter much as the screws in the back should be covered by the mirror of the case itself. Still, if you have a choice, we recommend black or grey.

We recommend drywall screws because they are by by far the easiest way to screw the wall mounts into the wall. BUT you need to get at least one of the two screws into a stud. If you can, you will be set. If you can't, then, depending on the weight of the case and object in the case, and the handling/wear tear of moving things in and out of the wall mount, the screws may work their way loose and eventually the wall mount could even fall off the wall.

So, if you can't get a screw into a stud, then we recommend using wall anchors. Of course wall anchors will be more difficult and still not as secure as drywall screws into studs. But, if you can't place the wall mount in a location where one of the screws can find a stud, then wall anchors are the next best choice.

⭐ ADDITIONAL TIPS:

1) If you're using a plastic wall anchor, make sure you screw the screw into the wall anchor first and then tap the top of the screw head with your hammer. This will prevent the plastic wall anchor from bending.

2) Depending on the wall anchor you use, it may not always use a quarter-inch or #4 drill bit. In general you want to use a drill bit that is slightly bigger than the wall anchor's width.

3) Compared to shims, cardboard is a better alternative because you can make it as thick & thin as you want it, and it's easier to hide behind the wall mount.

4) In the above video, we show the screw holes being marked & drilled separately. We recommend drawing the line across the length of the wall mount so you can mark both holes before drilling.
