    I want to mount my TV to my wall, it's a stud wall with the studs 24" apart but if I was to hang the TV it would be off centre on the wall. My question is can I use the centre stud to fix the Middle of the mount to and then use drywall ancors for the outer part of the bracket? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    That will depend on the weight of the TV

    I believe the weight of the TV is 20-21kg

    Yes you can. But be sure, that stud is strong and use proper screws.

    A wooden stud is pretty strong if you use the right fixings
