Our take on the Sanus ML11

by Ralph Graves

The ultra-thin Sanus ML11 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV a scant 9/16" from the wall — just about as close as you can get. It's the ideal wall-mount for many of the latest ultra-thin TVs. Yet this durable heavy-gauge design is strong enough to keep your TV firmly in place. The ML11-B1 can support a TV with a screen size of up to 46", and a weight of up to 100 lbs.

The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. You can also make small adjustments after the mount is affixed to the wall to level it, or even change the height. And the handy ClickStand at the bottom of each vertical brace swings out to prop your mounted TV away from the wall, to make cable hookup a breeze — without removing the TV from the mount.

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount ML11-B1 Super Slim Low-Profile Wall Mount's innovative design emphasizes the sleek look of your ultra-thin LCD, plasma, or LED TVs by placing them just .55" from the wall. The Sanus ML11-B1 offers exclusive features that make it incredibly easy to install and use. ClickStand technology holds the bottom of the TV away from the wall for easy cable access without removing the TV from the mount. Convenient quick-release tabs on both mounting brackets stay hidden, but easily pull down to unlock the TV from the wall plate for cable access. The ProSet feature allows post-installation height and leveling micro-adjustments for perfect positioning after hanging. Lateral shift allows the TV to move left and right on the wall plate so it is placed exactly where you want it, even with off-center studs. The ML11-B1's universal mounting pattern fits virtually any 26" - 46" flat-panel TV up to 100 lbs.

Compatibility: The ML11-B1 universal wall-mount bracket is designed to fit flat-panel plasma and LCD monitors from 26" to 46". The TV can have a maximum weight of 100 pounds.

Construction: The wall-mount bracket is made from solid heavy-gauge steel, with a durable powder coated black finish.

ProSet: ProSet post-installation height and leveling adjustments allow TV to be perfectly positioned after hanging. Once installed, your TV or wall-mounted furniture may not appear completely level with its surroundings. ProSet technology lets you make micro-adjustments to height and level after mounting to ensure perfect positioning.

ClickStand: The ML11-B1's ClickStand feature allows you to tilt the bottom of the TV outward (10-degrees/3.125-inches) and hold it there, giving you easy access to the back panel for connecting cables. Once all the cables have been plugged in, you can release the ClickStand and securely lock the TV into position on the wall plate.

Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs or anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts. The slots in the wall plate can accommodate a variety of stud spacing, allowing you to easily mount the TV to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center. Once the wall plate is anchored to the wall studs and the monitor brackets (with the TV attached) are hooked onto the wall plate, the TV can slide left or right, allowing you to center the TV on the wall.

Note: Each monitor bracket has multiple bolt holes and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) from 3-15/16" (100mm) to 15-3/4" (400mm). Since the monitor brackets can slide on the wall plate, the horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV can range from 2-9/16" (65mm) to 20" (508mm).

Steel Stud Mounting: If you wish to mount this Sanus wall mount in a building with steel stud walls, you will need the Sanus SSMK1 Steel Stud Mounting Kit (051SSMK1). Steel stud walls are typically found in commercial applications, such as office buildings, warehouses, and condominiums.

Mounting Hardware/Bolt Pattern: The ML11-B1 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 bolts to mount the monitor brackets to your TV. Given the mounting bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the following mounting bolt patterns:

  • 100 x 100
  • 200 x 100
  • 200 x 200
  • 300 x 200
  • 300 x 300
  • 400 x 200
  • 400 x 300
  • 400 x 400
  • 500 x 300
Note: Additional hardware may be required for your specific model of TV. For example; shorter or longer screws, thicker or slimmer washers or spacers. These additional accessories can often be found at your local hardware store.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the ML11-B1:

  • Stud finder
  • Punch
  • Level
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Electric drill
  • Drill bits: 3/16" (wood studs) and 5/16" (masonry)


Wall Plate Dimensions: W= 22.75", H = 4.875", D = 0.5625"

Monitor Bracket Dimensions:  W = 2.5625", H = 18.1875", D = 0.5625"

A flat screen mount should be adjustable and easy to mount and level. This one fits the bill. The directions do not have a single word of explanation, but a study of the drawings makes installation straightforward.
Fits screen close to wall Seems adaptable to variety of future flat screens (I hope)

Needed a wall mount for my old 37 inch Dell TV/Monitor and went back and forth until I decided on this one. Mixed reviews but due to the weight of the TV I choose Sanus ML11 and was not disappointed. Very easy to put up and it gave me a very secure mount. Very please with Crutchfield Service and the product.
very quick to put up, very secure

Modern Bedroom

Written By GarretS, Chicago, IL on Monday, November 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
As part of combining households, I needed to make space for a new Sony flatscreen TV in my bedroom. We decided to finally mount the TV to the wall, and incorporate shelves for the AV components. So I purchased this item and the shelving system, and installed them both myself. The quality of the hardware and the instructions were perfect. I have moderate experience with home improvement, so I would say that I only read them minimally. Overall, I recommend this item and the Sanus Single Stud Wall Mounted Component Shelf (shelf system) if you need something for a bedroom entertainment setup.
- Quality hardware - Good instructions - Plenty of extra parts
- None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Make sure you have ample room above the bracket to be able to hang the TV and make sure you have ample room under it so as to be able to release it from the bracket if necessary, I had about 1 inch above and 1 inch below so I had to remove the springs that lock it in position so as to be able to swing it out in order to reach the back.

Nice product...but

Written By Ticmxman, Georgia on Tuesday, February 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is a very well designed mount.
But I ended up returning it due to the limiting length
of the wall mounting plate @ 22.70''.
I could not hit the studs and center my 46'' plasma between a door and a window.

I ended up buying a mount that had a 32'' mounting plate and hit 3 studs.

My recomendation is to buy as large a mount as you can for more flexability in placing
the mounting plate on the wall.

Great wall mount. Easy to use. I like the ability to angle it out from the wall after it is
mounted in order to make more connections. Very well made and all the hardware was
included to mount the TV. Would definitely buy another one.

Quality Product

Written By Gary, Barto, PA on Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I decided to give this a try as an alternative to the Samsung wall mount and I am not dissapointed. This product is very well made, is extremely sturdy construction, and comes with all the hardware you would possibly need to mount your TV. The only complaint is in the length of the release cords to tilt the TV away from the wall. These came up a little short on the installation of a 46" TV. However, the best thing I can say is that my LED is so close to the wall it looks like a picture hanging there. Lots of compliments.

purchased this for my Samsung UN40B-7000 - mount is solid and was easy
to install. TV looks amazing. The TV is super thin at 1.2" and with the
mount it is no more than 2.2". Why would you ever buy the Samsung
