What size screws are recommended for an 25kg tv wall mount
I'm hanging a tv, 55" approx 20kg and a wall mount approx 3kg. There are 3 screw holes approx 6mm diameter, almost vertical on the mount, so I intend on fixing it a wall stud. The wall mount did not come with screws and I am at a loss at size to use. What do you recommend?

Make sure you get the timber studs and any screw from 60mm up to 90mm will be fine

The longer the better, most important is to find a good fixing in the studs.
