    hi, not sure if this is the right forum for this but will try.

    I need to put my tv up on the wall which has been dot and dabbed

    Obviously you get wall plugs for plasterboard and you get wall plugs for brick. But I have a combination of them both!

    I used to have it on the chimney and used rawl bolt fixings.

    Any suggestions please

    oh its a 46" LCD so quite weighty

    mark the bracket position, cut out plasterboard and fit battens in place to mount the bracket to and fix battens with screws and plugs :)

    Just used these to put my kitchen cabinets up: http://www.drylinepro.com

    They seem to work pretty well. I had a couple fail on insertion. They are quite sensitive to hole depth and angle in lightweight block and they aren't cheap but I am happy with them so far.
