Hi! I am moving soon and I already started planning the new interior for the place. Thing is, I am not from UK and I am not at all used to drywalls and plasterboards, so when I chose the house I am moving to I didn't even think about these matters (much less about the studs infrastructure behind them).

TL;DR: I recently bought a 49" 16kgs TV and would like to have it mounted to the wall. Can I use these heavy duty plasterboard anchors to install a wall mount with swivel and lots of arms movement and etc without needing to worry about studs and whatnot?

16kg TV will be fine on a plasterboard wall.

Use the following: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plasterboard-Setting-Expanding-Fixings-Anchors/dp/B00BC585HM

a single M5 one will hold 40kg so spreading 16kg over 4 of them (average number of fixing per TV bracket) will most certainly hold this weight.

find where wine of the studs are in the wall. and then there will be another stud every 400mm screw Batton or a price of ply onto the studs and fix your bracket to that!

Use these very easy to fit and rock solid ive hung 50mm venetian blinds fixed to the ceiling in a bay window very heavy but no problem with these. You will hit the wood studs too just use a good screw on those

good one, find stud behind plasterboard wall, then as i did screw onto the wall piece of plywood on which you can install your bracket, just make sure plywood is well screwed into studs.

Thanks for the replies! I will reply eventually to inform of the outcome (not that it's of anyone's interest.. hahahah)

just what everyone said, find a stud, use it. I will add, place a socket behind where the tv will go to hide the wires.

if it's a plaster board wall I'd never put up a heavy tv on. if it's led then they are light weight but never a plasma :)

Just find a stud and use that, you could also decide where you want the TV and then put in cross studs where you need them.

I had to do that with my boiler as I got the measurements wrong and instead cut a section of plasterboard back, fitted the stud and replaced the section of board I cut out.

The boiler than covered the section that was cut out.
