    I got this black hook type thing that can be fixed to the wall.

    But I dont think its strong enough to hold the screen

    You could always do what i did and cut the screen out of the metal frame ( my wall has something like tiles in them and i couldn't wall mount it and ceiling was out of the question ) After i cut it out of the metal frame i hung it on the wall using the middle pull out bracket and i simply tacked it all down, mind you its now a home cinema room and no longer a living room.

    If they are the metal hook things, and they also include the screws and fittings, that fit into the back of the screen border to hold it against or onto the wall then yes these are strong enough, they have been holding mine up for the past few weeks.

    Hey

    I got the Beqamax R series manual screen recently and it came with no fittings. I just drilled the plasterboard wall, inserted long, 1.5 inch wallplugs and used some long two-inch steel screws, leaving a little bit out to hook the eyehole on to. Just do one side, hook it on and then using a chair (or a mate) raise the other side of the screen up and use a spirit level along the top to ensure it's level. When correct, mark through the eye hole with a pencil, drill second hole, wallplug, screw and that's that. Steady as a rock.

    That sounds that it does work well for the R Series but the A Series does not have any eyeholes. :)

    Believe it or not I fix my A-Series to the wall with BluTack! It rests on top of some shelves and I just blutack the top to the wall to stop it falling forward.
