You need to know exactly what's behind the plasterboard, that's where you're going to need a detector. This allows me to glide it across the wall and it will tell me if there are any wise pipes or stood way behind the plasterboard, the area that I want to drill. No pipes or wires there, which is great if I move it further over it, automatically find a pipe or a wire behind there.
You can then put your split-level on and check it. It's perfectly level before you mark your drill it for the next screws. Now you've got your bracket firmly fixed to the wall. You can slide your shelf into position and finally, you've got two small per-drilled holes and you on the side of the shelf.
That gives me an indication to avoid drilling in that area once I've drilled, my first hole and now allow me to put the plug into it and when fixing to plasterboard, make sure you're using the correct fixings, and I can offer the bracket off get the fish screw to bite and once you've got your fare screw fixed in position.
