    I'm looking to attach my tv to the wall. Said wall in plasterboard dabbed onto brick. What is the best method for attaching the bracket to the wall? I'm not looking to make massive holes and attach wood to the wall or anything. Ta :)

    Or just drill deep holes until you hit the blocks. It's worked fine for me using the 6 provided bolts (using a £16 amazon kit).

    And don't over tighten the bolts as you'll end up pulling them out of the secure wall.

    if the plasterboard is fixed to the wall using dabbing then there wont be enough space to place a baton behind the plasterboard as you'll have about an inch max.

    I used some bolts when I can across this issue - i'll be creating a build thread soon as ive just finished my av build today!
