Hi hopieopie,


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community.


Before you hang your TV onto the wall, you will want to locate a stud if possible. You may prefer to use the drywall anchors rather than the toggle bolts if you are not able to locate a stud in the right area.  Next, you will want to mount the bracket that will hold your flat screen TV to the wall.  Once your bracket has been positioned and then mounted properly, you are ready to mount the TV onto the Flat Screen TV wall mounting bracket.

The issue you may have with the Toggle bolt will be the size of the hole for the bracket which mounts to the wall.  

That is why I prefer to use the drywall anchors.  Once the drywall anchor has been inserted into the wall, the screw can be inserted thru the wall bracket and then into the anchor.  


The toggle bolts are much more cumbersome to work with than the drywall anchors.
