Cinder Block Wall Mount

Posted by chefbecky (My Page) on

We need to mount a 52" LCD on a cinder block wall that has 1"x2" firing strips (instead of wood 2"x4" wood studs) between dry wall and the cinder blocks.

Any suggestions on how to mount the articulating wall mount to the drywall/cinder block wall. Will Tapcon concrete anchors or Red Head concrete anchors or red head sleeve anchors or other type of fastener work best.

Thanks for recommendations

Tapcon or any concrete screws wont hold the weight when fully extended. Hilti bolts are great for solid concrete. I've used 3/8 or 1/4 toggle bolts depending on weight (zip kind much smaller hole and easier to use) just use flat washers to fill for the furring strip, bolt tight and start watch'n tv
