    I have acquired a used Pioneer wall mount off of eBay for 50 quid - it arrived with everything bar the bolts to mount it to the wall.Can anybody recommend what type,and how many bolts or screws I need to fix the bracket to a block wall,that would enable the mount to safely support a PDP504 (38 KGSs).

    Many thanks in advance.

    I bought the fischer plugs for mounting my 504HDE, only to find I didn't have an aircrete wall ... money well spent ... NOT!!! PM me with your e-mail address and I will stick them in the post for you. You will have to source your own screws mind ....

    Many thanks Simon,and also for your kind offer Mike - alas,me being trigger happy ,ordered 20 off of the Screwfix link that Simon provided.

    Thanks anyway mate,your offer was much appreciated. :thumbsup:

    This leads me on to my next question - how many do I realistically need to use to safely make good the wall bracket.


    Thanks again guys.

    Not really IMO, I would only recommend them for concrete... Fischer plugs and over-size coach screws are best for brick, or the above frame fixings will hang an elephant...

    This is MY opinion, if in doubt ask a qualified builder or better still phone Fischer tech support...

    How many holes are there in your bracket as that's the number to use..! I have a Unicol bracket with six fixings and I can hang on it... If you go onto the Fischer website you can download the specs for the various fixings which give their load bearing capabilities...

    Thanks Simon - I'll check it out.

    My bracket doesn't have holes - just loads of long elongated slots.

    Best course of action is to check the load rating,as you mentioned,and I will add a few for luck !!!
