No, your wall mount does not need to be mounted directly into drywall studs. We recommend using standard drywall anchors when hanging your wall mount with the included screws. Your wall mount will support weights up to 20 lbs when mounted into drywall.
Any WORX lawn and garden tools with a looped handle will be compatible with your wall mount. Please reference below for a list of current tools that are compatible with the wall mount. Note: There are a number of discontinued WORX tools not found on this list that will also be compatible with your wall mount.
