drill holes for wall bracket too big... Recommended filler

Postby selection989 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 3:37 pm

Hie there... I just purchased a new plasma tv that I planned on installing in my room. However, the holes that I drilled for the wall plugs are too big. I was wondering if I could use bostik gripfill to fill out the holes before redrilling and reinserting the wall plugs. Any help would be appreciated.

Simply Build It

If you have drilled the holes too big ... why not fit a bigger plug.

The other option is get the right sized drill and move the bracket over a couple of inches, and re-drill.

Only a couple of holes will then be seen which are easily filled... but on the other, hand they should'nt be seen behind most wall mounted plasmas..!
