Opinions requested: TV wall mount with steel studs
I've mounted a number of flat screen tvs, but always bolted into wooden studs. My daughter just moved into a brand new condo and she would like to have her 32" Sony (which weighs about 30 lbs) mounted on the wall. The wall construction is 1/2" sheetrock over steel studs set 16" on center. Because of the way the cables come into the back of the tv, it needs to be a minimum of 3" away from the wall. I'm planning to get a mount that takes four fasteners and bolt into each of two steel studs with a pair of 1/4" molly bolts, either the ones with spring-loaded wings or the collapsible kind. I'd like opinions on whether this will be adequate to mount a tv of this weight this distance from the wall.
