    I have a Cello 23" in a bedroom and have stud walls. Would a wing arm bracket be OK to fit direct to the wall board?

    ideally a swing arm needs to be into the stud work possible without but ideally fix to stud.

    Hi

    As 'Horny Dragon' says, you ideally need to fix to a stud. If you can't fix to a stud due to it's location then you can attach a batton or piece of wood to the wall first and attach the bracket to that. Alternatively, if you have solid brick or breezeblock behind the stud wall then you can cut away a small area of the board and mount the bracket directly to the brick. This also means your TV will be completely flush when pushed back.

    Check out our suitable brackets here;

    Hope this helps

    Regards
