The mount is rated for up to 115 lbs and the TV is only 37 1/2. It is held on the wall by 6 3/8" lag screws that are into the center of the studs. (It's hard for me to use the Stud Finder. It stays lit up whenever I am touching it).
Only 2 difficulties. Again the directions were useless. There is an adapter for use when mounting really large TVs but the directions make it seem like you use it on any TV. After stressing for 15 minutes because there was no way it could fit on my TV I realized that I could just ignore it on my 40" set.
When it came time to mount it on the wall, I measured, located studs, used my level to make sure and then marked the first 2 holes. I drilled the first one so now the die was cast and the other 5 had to be in the right relationship to that first one. When I started to drill the second hole there was a drywall screw exactly where the hole had to be. So I had to first drill it out. Then when I drilled hole 6 I found another. What are the odds.

OK the TV is now mounted on the wall and working. It should be there to stay.I don't always talk to UVa Grads but when I do I always order the Large Fries.

Congratulations on a job well done!
Several years ago my Dad bought a 37" Dynex LCD TV (720P) from Best Buy for the break room at our main business. He wanted it hung and also got a mounting kit. One Sunday I brought my tools and such and got the TV put up it was perfectly level...but there was a problem.
The back part of the building was built before the turn of the 20th century...the floor has sagged a bit and the wall is off kilter a bubble or two...the frame is still on plumb, the back side of the building was sluffing so my Dad and Uncle years ago jacked up the building from the basement.
So the TV per the studs is perfectly plumb but the wall isn't...it's an interesting optical illusion.I only post using 100% recycled electrons.
Well I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones.
