Can you hang a heavy picture on drywall?
Consequently, how much weight can you hang on drywall?
This can be 5 to 10 pounds, but keep in mind that the drywall is an extremely brittle material and, it is not strong enough to hold the weight for a longer period of time.
Secondly, how many pounds can a drywall anchor hold? Toggles, anchors or molly bolts are surprisingly strong. A 1/8 toggle can hold 30 pounds on 1/2-inch drywall and a 3/8-inch toggle can handle a hefty 50 pounds or more safely. When applying any kind of drywall anchor, you should understand how they work and which screw anchor may work best to put into a hollow wall.
Similarly, how heavy should pictures be for drywall?
For heavier loads (25 pounds to 50 pounds), use a flat-mounted hook and an anchor. Best for: Picture frames (up to 20 pounds) on drywall and plaster.
Can I hang a TV on drywall?
Use a toggle: If there simply aren't any studs where you want to mount the TV, then you need to use some sort of hollow wall anchor. Mounting a TV on drywall or plaster without attaching to a stud can be a very safe and reliable solution IF you know the limits of the wall and the toggles.
