attaching frameless mirror to wall

I am installing a 3ft x 4ft x 6 millimeters thick frameless mirror in our bathroom. It weighs 37 lbs. I purchased the Stanley Spring Loaded Mirror Mounting Clips. Two on the bottom and two for the top. The bottom ones are in a stud. I used a screw that went through 1/2 inch drywall and 3/4 inch into the stud.

It does not give me any ideas how much they should hold. Does this appear to be enough clips to hold this mirror?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Harlan.

Harlan: I believe the Stanley clips will hold just fine. However, if you have any doubts, a couple of dollops of mirror adhesive along the top quandrants won't hurt. It will make it permanent, however. You stated the bottom clips went into the studs, but failed to say whether or not the top ones did. There will be a pull out threat if you don't secure them well, either in studs or with adequate fasteners into the sheetrock.
