Acquire two large L-shaped brackets.  Use an electronic stud finder to  find  
two studs in your wall.  They should be eighteen inches apart.  Attach the 
brackets to the wall with 1/4" or 3/8" lags.  Attach the brackets to the 
stand as appropriate to the  structure.  (Makes it earthquake -resistant too, 
(if you live in California.))
