As a new condo resident I'm dealing with metal stud walls for the first time. A quick web search revealed that metal studs lack the strength, rigidity and solid attachment points that wood stud walls offer. Many descriptions on DIY websites tell horror stories of TVs collapsing to the floor and advise consumers to do nothing less than rip out the entire wall, replacing it with wood studs! As this is a rental, that was out of the question but these Togglers did the trick.
I used a stud finder to locate the metal studs (just thin, steel channels shaped like a " ] ") but I still needed to drill 1/16" holes to locate the edges. Then I drilled 1/2" holes to anchor the TV mounting plate with 6 Togglers. The TV is secure and there is no sign of cracking or flexing in the wall.
As one reviewer notes, you probably don't have a 1/2" bit in your toolbox. Also, I was told to use a 1/2" bit that works with metal (as opposed to a wood bit) so the metal stud doesn't get torn up. Since a 1/2" bit alone was $15 I bought this complete kit for less than $20 DEWALT DW1354 14-Piece Titanium Drill Bit Set. It's always handy to have extra bits in the house.
CAUTION - Clearly metal stud walls are MUCH weaker than wood stud walls. For a heavy TV like mine (100lbs) this technique is probably NOT suitable for fully articulating TV mounts that extend the TV out from the wall. But for a regular tilt mount it works great.
I always try to use LED backlit TVs since they are the lightest. The cheetah mount linked above is amazingly light and works well, the VideoSecu is pretty heavy (heavier than the tv last time). Every time I put a mount up with these bolts I do a full pull up on it to stress test the bolt and the mount (not highly recommended but I would give it a few tugs), it's better to have it break with you in it than with a tv that could fall and hurt someone. So far I haven't had any problems (I'm inside the recommended weight limit for these bolts) and I've been impressed greatly by their holding power.
For a flush TV mount on aluminum studs it is best if you can put a piece of plywood behind it then bolt it into the two studs, but I have used these before with just the mount and it has held.
Highly recommended from my experience.
My TV Mount installation was going quite well until I realized my mistake.
Now, snaptoggle togglers solve all the downsides of the other anchors. You need a drill and a screwdriver, and that is about it. No need for questionable stud-finders. No need to worry about the screw length. These are easy to install and a snap (literally) to set the right depth.
I found the video on Amazon very helpful before I bought these.

I was researching the best way to hang things on drywalls, and was convinced that anchors are no good for anything heavier than a small picture. Toggles should be used instead. Read morePublished 13 days ago by SYL

Have used this twice, two years apart to hang massive TV's without searching (or guessing) where the studs might be located, at least until I buy the newer, lighter TV's.Published 1 month ago by Sereng
Powered screw driver broke the toggle before it tightened. It was not a result of being over tightened. Use manual screw driver given how frickin expensive these are. Read morePublished 1 month ago by IROAR
Great product. I don't use anything else to mount furniture or whatever unless you have a stud to screw into. If you have metal studs you need these!Published 2 months ago by Jeanette Hwang
