Hi

I want to fix a bracket to a brick wall that will hold my LCD moniter. The screws and rawl plugs provided with the bracket kit were the wrong size for each other. I have M6x50 coach screws but being an amateur I have no idea what size plugs and what is the best type of plug I need to securely mount the bracket to the wall. I need to keep a 5mm gap for the bracket hole depth thickness.

Thank-you very much for any advice given :)

Thank-you for the welcome and your reply Verwood Handyman. One further question I've just thought of that I'd like to ask: the bracket depth is 5mm so i only need 45 mm of the screw in the drilled hole in the wall - will the brown plugs still be the right length for that?

It's only a flat computer monitor right? Not a big TV?
