Instructions and Help about Which Form 8815 Premium

Hi I'm Mike Edwards the company is home improvement doctor limited we are part of the DIY doctor group and this is a video in response to the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of questions that we get about fitting things like t v-- brackets now this is a 42 inch flat-screen TV bracket to a hollow or plasterboard wall and quite simply if you fill it to the plaster board on its own the tele is very likely to fall off the wall so we're going to show you how to use something like let me put this down a moment how to use a stud detector an electrical stud detector this particular one is called an Intel ascensor it's very sensitive indeed and not only does it tell you where the stud is but it gives you the edges of the stud it differentiates between the void that's behind the plasterboard and the very edge of the stud so if you know where the edges are it's quite simple to work out where the middle is it's battery-operated a little 9-volt battery pops in the back and it's about as simple as it gets with one operational button on the side and once that's pressed the machine is live we then move over to the wall these are I think somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds they're they're not expensive considering the money that they will save you ultimately we move over to our possible wall as you can hear that's a hollow wall we're actually in our film studio DIY doctor has a test sites down in Somerset and we've got a film studio set up there so that we can demonstrate things like this to you because it's not always possible to do this in somebody's house so this is a plaster board wall we're going to look for the studs so that we can fix that TV bracket replace the stud detector on the wall and click the on button and you'll see we have a green light there to show that we've got power coming the start to the detector and then we simply move the detector along the wall and you will hear there that the detector has found something behind it I'll also move this very very carefully back to show you that the bottom red light is coming on to say that we've we're quite close then the second red light comes on to say we're even closer and by moving at that little bit more the top light comes on to tell us and these little letters here I don't know if the cameraman can get a close-up of that these little letters here say edge so as soon as that lights on we know we found the edge of the stud now we can continue moving that along until that light goes off and then move it back gradually see the second light is coming on there and then the edge light so that there are the two edges of our stud found very very easily and we saw from the lights I'll do it once more we saw from the lights as they came on but there's no break in that light all the way through so we know for sure that this is one single solid stud and not as happens in some cases two studs nailed together so we can tell that that's one solid stud and by fitting our TV bracket firmly to a stud in the wall with timber screws we know that's going to stay there so that's how we find studs in hollow walls or plasterboard walls using a stud detector I'm Mike Edwards the company's home improvement doctor we hope that helps you.
