I am using 2 1/2 inch screws on my 2X4s, and at times, not all the time, I have a problem getting them all the way through. Step 2: Find the Studs. He promptly tells me that it was well over 7 months ago. ._2YJDRz5rCYQfu8YdgB_neb{overflow:hidden;position:relative}._2YJDRz5rCYQfu8YdgB_neb:before{background-image:url(https://www.redditstatic.com/desktop2x/img/reddit_pattern.png);content:"";filter:var(--newCommunityTheme-invertFilter);height:100%;position:absolute;width:100%}._37WD6iicVS6vGN0RomNTwh{padding:0 12px 12px;position:relative} 4" bolt - 1.5" cleat - 0.5" (assumed)drywall would leave 2" threaded into the stud. The smaller the pilot hole, the more effective the lag screw will be. Nine? If you hold things flush to the wall with only a 1-1/4" cantilever, I would up the embedment to a minimum of 2-1/2" or more to ensure the wood stud does not crush at bolt under load due to the multiplying effect of the cantilever. You can do this by upping the size of the cleat to a 2x6 and use two or three bolts. The problem with this method is that there isn't always a stud behind the spot in which you need the screw. They are also known as lag bolts. Be sort of suspect if it was a metal plate. are you sure you havent hit a metal plate on a stud designed to protect some wiring? A toggle bolt is used for lamping heavy objects to drywall or lath. Extra care must be taken to not split or damage the stud when putting 4 bolts in it because if you do, the only fix is to use all drywall anchors or open the wall and have a handyman repair the stud before attempting the TV mounting process again. As the screw bites into the inner stud or board, it should pull the two boards together tightly. .FIYolDqalszTnjjNfThfT{max-width:256px;white-space:normal;text-align:center} I believe there should be an inverted metal V hole in the plywood backing, that the bolt head should fit into. Setting Up. For the other 99% of the time, you're going to need to use a drywall anchor to hang that thing on the wall. Or you can add a vertical member below the cleat at each stud and effectively add a bolt every 4" or so in the vertical member with predrilled holes plus the bolt(s) into the cleat. Motion Sensing Light Switch Requires Minimum Load of 60W - can I use with LEDs? Make sure there's not a metal plate there. ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} The wall is framed with standard 16" spacing between studs, and the house was built in 2006. I've heard more often that using impacts to drive lag bolts will, more often than not, result in that. Then a thought crossed my mind. You get additional support by the cleat trying to go down and into the wall which puts withdrawel load on the fastener effectively adding more support using the tensile strength of the fastener. How does the recent Chinese quantum supremacy claim compare with Google's? Plastic anchors are specifically made to go into drywall, not studs. Then I began to drill the lag bolts but it stops when there is about a little over an inch left. They'd only stand 1/4" proud above the surface of the drywall. That's a big old lag bolt to go straight into a 2x4 without pre-drilling. Lag bolts won't go through wall stud despite drilling fine I'm trying to install my TV mount and I pre-drilled using a 5/32" drill bit and went in about 2 1/4" depth. spade bit, then predrill the screw hole through the counterbore. A toggle bolt uses a large collapsible nut to increase clamping pressure of the bolt. The same distance as the depth I mentioned. MD2413-MX Making statements based on opinion; back them up with references or personal experience. 11 1 1 silver badge 2 2 bronze badges. An increased embedment also increases the amount of withdrawal load the fastener can handle when it slides down the wall (if the bolt does bend) and tries to pull out. Drilling through was effortless. Probably 3/8? Six large men, each 200lbs, are standing on the 2x10. Asking for help, clarification, or responding to other answers. The site may not work properly if you don't, If you do not update your browser, we suggest you visit, Press J to jump to the feed. But I've never lagged into the side of a stud before. Is every field the residue field of a discretely valued field of characteristic 0? It's not always necessary to countersink the head on lag bolts. Yeah I did the pilot drill hole. These steel screws are hot-dipped galvanized to resist corrosion in wet environments. You mention the torque is all the way. Given your suggestion of larger cleats with more bolts, do you think that six 3/8" zinc lags, 5" long to embed 2-1/4" into the studs, would support considerable weight pressing/pulling on the cleat? Lag screws are a bit different than some of their counterparts. Or 6" lags to embed 3-1/4"? The shelves are structurally solid, but I'm concerned about mounting them. In this model, shelf/item weight rests... ...partly on the cleat itself but mostly on the brackets screwed into the cleat, which (I think) increases the cantilevered force on the lag bolts due to the forward moment/leverage on the cleat as the shelf/item weight basically pulls the cleat from the wall. However you mention that a wrench did the trick. If it leans out some, just tighten the bolt so there is no gap. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. I left my own stuff back home about 3 hours away. The most secure way to drive a screw into drywall or plaster is to locate a wall stud using a stud finder or the old-fashioned tap-tap method and drive the screw into that. I'm concerned now that with the lag bolts basically unsupported through 1.25" of drywall between the cleat and the stud, the bolts may fail under enough weight. It's easy to see that the drywall thickness doesn't matter. Good idea to warn students they were suspected of cheating? I don't think it's that complex as I've seen some other drills. Title of a "Spy vs Extraterrestrials" Novella set on Pacific Island? Also, I figured that 3.5 inch length would be good as they would go almost 3 inches into the studs (the drywall is half inch) But I'm wondering if bolts this big May weaken the studs? Assuming this doesn't compromise the integrity of a 3-1/2" stud, are six cantilevered 3/8 lags adequate? If you, so you need to switch it to the lower gear / slower speed. I'm hesitant to use lag bolts any thicker than 3/8" for the sake of not chewing through a third of the width of the studs. Not to mention that the drill went through effortlessly. I'm trying to install my TV mount and I pre-drilled using a 5/32" drill bit and went in about 2 1/4" depth. Was there an anomaly during SN8's ascent which later led to the crash? ._1EPynDYoibfs7nDggdH7Gq{margin-bottom:8px;position:relative}._1EPynDYoibfs7nDggdH7Gq._3-0c12FCnHoLz34dQVveax{max-height:63px;overflow:hidden}._1zPvgKHteTOub9dKkvrOl4{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;line-height:21px;font-weight:400;word-wrap:break-word}._1dp4_svQVkkuV143AIEKsf{-ms-flex-align:baseline;align-items:baseline;background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);bottom:-2px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-flow:row nowrap;flex-flow:row nowrap;padding-left:2px;position:absolute;right:-8px}._5VBcBVybCfosCzMJlXzC3{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:400;line-height:21px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-bodyText)}._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);border:0;padding:0 8px}._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI:active,._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI:hover{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaTextShaded80);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaTextShaded80)}._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI:disabled,._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI[data-disabled],._3YNtuKT-Is6XUBvdluRTyI[disabled]{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaTextAlpha50);cursor:not-allowed;fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaTextAlpha50)}._2ZTVnRPqdyKo1dA7Q7i4EL{transition:all .1s linear 0s}.k51Bu_pyEfHQF6AAhaKfS{transition:none}._2qi_L6gKnhyJ0ZxPmwbDFK{transition:all .1s linear 0s;display:block;background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-field);border-radius:4px;padding:8px;margin-bottom:12px;margin-top:8px;border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-canvas);cursor:pointer}._2qi_L6gKnhyJ0ZxPmwbDFK:focus{outline:none}._2qi_L6gKnhyJ0ZxPmwbDFK:hover{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-button)}._2qi_L6gKnhyJ0ZxPmwbDFK._3GG6tRGPPJiejLqt2AZfh4{transition:none;border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-button)}.IzSmZckfdQu5YP9qCsdWO{cursor:pointer;transition:all .1s linear 0s}.IzSmZckfdQu5YP9qCsdWO ._1EPynDYoibfs7nDggdH7Gq{border:1px solid transparent;border-radius:4px;transition:all .1s linear 0s}.IzSmZckfdQu5YP9qCsdWO:hover ._1EPynDYoibfs7nDggdH7Gq{border:1px solid var(--newCommunityTheme-button);padding:4px}._1YvJWALkJ8iKZxUU53TeNO{font-size:12px;font-weight:700;line-height:16px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-button)}._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7{display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex}._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7 ._3jyKpErOrdUDMh0RFq5V6f{-ms-flex:100%;flex:100%}._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7 .dqhlvajEe-qyxij0jNsi0{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-button)}._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7 ._12nHw-MGuz_r1dQx5YPM2v,._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7 .dqhlvajEe-qyxij0jNsi0{font-size:12px;font-weight:700;line-height:16px;cursor:pointer;-ms-flex-item-align:end;align-self:flex-end;-webkit-user-select:none;-ms-user-select:none;user-select:none}._3adDzm8E3q64yWtEcs5XU7 ._12nHw-MGuz_r1dQx5YPM2v{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-button);margin-right:8px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-errorText)}._3zTJ9t4vNwm1NrIaZ35NS6{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;line-height:21px;font-weight:400;word-wrap:break-word;width:100%;padding:0;border:none;background-color:transparent;resize:none;outline:none;cursor:pointer;color:var(--newRedditTheme-bodyText)}._2JIiUcAdp9rIhjEbIjcuQ-{resize:none;cursor:auto}._2I2LpaEhGCzQ9inJMwliNO{display:inline-block}._2I2LpaEhGCzQ9inJMwliNO,._42Nh7O6pFcqnA6OZd3bOK{margin-left:4px;vertical-align:middle}._42Nh7O6pFcqnA6OZd3bOK{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-button);height:16px;width:16px;margin-bottom:2px} Does not fit standard cast iron brackets, Problem mounting TV wall mount / possible cracked stud. Yes, lag bolt into a stud. Radial ribs help provide holding values in both hard and soft base materials. Then when you drive the fastener the wax will lube it as it goes in. Sounds as if you are putting a floor in a clear story room, 1/2 way up. One of the easiest ways to find studs is to use a stud finder. ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{font-size:14px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:32px;text-transform:uppercase;display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%} .c_dVyWK3BXRxSN3ULLJ_t{border-radius:4px 4px 0 0;height:34px;left:0;position:absolute;right:0;top:0}._1OQL3FCA9BfgI57ghHHgV3{-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:start;justify-content:flex-start;margin-top:32px}._1OQL3FCA9BfgI57ghHHgV3 ._33jgwegeMTJ-FJaaHMeOjV{border-radius:9001px;height:32px;width:32px}._1OQL3FCA9BfgI57ghHHgV3 ._1wQQNkVR4qNpQCzA19X4B6{height:16px;margin-left:8px;width:200px}._39IvqNe6cqNVXcMFxFWFxx{display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;margin:12px 0}._39IvqNe6cqNVXcMFxFWFxx ._29TSdL_ZMpyzfQ_bfdcBSc{-ms-flex:1;flex:1}._39IvqNe6cqNVXcMFxFWFxx .JEV9fXVlt_7DgH-zLepBH{height:18px;width:50px}._39IvqNe6cqNVXcMFxFWFxx ._3YCOmnWpGeRBW_Psd5WMPR{height:12px;margin-top:4px;width:60px}._2iO5zt81CSiYhWRF9WylyN{height:18px;margin-bottom:4px}._2iO5zt81CSiYhWRF9WylyN._2E9u5XvlGwlpnzki78vasG{width:230px}._2iO5zt81CSiYhWRF9WylyN.fDElwzn43eJToKzSCkejE{width:100%}._2iO5zt81CSiYhWRF9WylyN._2kNB7LAYYqYdyS85f8pqfi{width:250px}._2iO5zt81CSiYhWRF9WylyN._1XmngqAPKZO_1lDBwcQrR7{width:120px}._3XbVvl-zJDbcDeEdSgxV4_{border-radius:4px;height:32px;margin-top:16px;width:100%}._2hgXdc8jVQaXYAXvnqEyED{animation:_3XkHjK4wMgxtjzC1TvoXrb 1.5s ease infinite;background:linear-gradient(90deg,var(--newCommunityTheme-field),var(--newCommunityTheme-inactive),var(--newCommunityTheme-field));background-size:200%}._1KWSZXqSM_BLhBzkPyJFGR{background-color:var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetBackgroundColor);border-radius:4px;padding:12px;position:relative;width:auto} .s5ap8yh1b4ZfwxvHizW3f{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);padding-top:5px}.s5ap8yh1b4ZfwxvHizW3f._19JhaP1slDQqu2XgT3vVS0{color:#ea0027} ._12xlue8dQ1odPw1J81FIGQ{display:inline-block;vertical-align:middle} Thanks for the answer and keep them coming.
