Wall plates can be surface mounted to a wall that has studs 16" on center.
The Wall Bracket Mounting solution allows you to utilize our wall plates in situations
where you don't have studs 16" on center, have a masonry wall, or simply don't want to
cut a large opening in your wall as required with the surface mounting solution.
Brackets can be mounted to any type of wall as long as they are anchored securely and properly.

Mounting Pictures & Tips
Surface Mounting Bracket Mounting

For Surface mounting you need to mount between 2 studs.

We use a stud finder to locate the studs - We mark the stud
locations and then mark an area near a stud for a pilot hole.

For our bracket mount example we are mounting to a stud wall.

We use a stud finder to locate the stud(s) - We mark the stud
location(s) and then mark an area near a stud for a pilot hole.

Drill the pilot hole.

Drill the pilot hole.

We make the pilot hole larger - we can verify stud location and
make sure there are no issues before making the hole full size.
We mark out our rough opening and mounting holes.

We make the pilot hole larger. The larger hole will also serve
as a cable port and we repeat this process based on how
many cable ports are going to be needed.

We cut out the rough opening.

We pre-drill our mounting holes and run the cables through opening.

We run the cables through our opening.

We run the cables through the bracket's cable ports.
Attach bracket to wall using proper screws at studs
and wall anchors where no studs are available.

We solder our cables and attach the plate to the wall.
We use screws suitable for that type of wall and studs.

We solder our cables and attach the plate to the bracket.
For this we use 10/32 rack screws with captive washers.

The wall plate is flush to the wall.

The complete assembly will protrude from the wall 6" - 6 1/2".
