It's a very similar process to the above, with a few small differences.
TV Wall Brackets and Monitor Wall Brackets can be heavy so please ensure that you fit the TV Wall Bracket or the Monitor Wall Bracket into at least two upright wooden studs within the partion at each end of the bracket. You can easily locate the UPRIGHT STUDS by using an electronic stud-finder. In most modern UK houses under 25 years old , they are usually 11" to 13" apart, and approx 2" to 3" wide.
