small framing question for tv mount
Just opened up my walls and realized the steel studs are 24 OC and the stud wall is about 2 inches wide only plus sheetrock making it 4 inches.
The tv mount I bought is made for 16 inches and I was planning on building this bracket to install the tv mount.
Just wondering if I could screw the bracket diagonally into the studs or the best way to do this?
Was planning to use black sheetrock screws for the front of the stud attached to the larger piece on the right side and then the same screws on the side of the steel stud into the side of the stud. The top and and bottom would have these long screws from the top and bottom for the 2 pieces in the middle so the framing doesnt buckl to much.
Is this over kill and I only really need the 2 horizontal pieces of wood and attach those to the stud?
