Our take on the Sanus Classic MLT15-B1

by Ralph Graves
Sanus Classic

The Sanus Classic MLT15-B1 is designed for flat-panel TVs up to 63", and holds your display only 3" from the wall. This sturdy mount tilts up or down so you can position your TV to eliminate unwanted glare from windows or other light. And you can slide the mount slightly from side to side for optimal placement, even with off-center studs.

Hardest part was finding the studs

Written By James D, Houston, Texas on Monday, April 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this bracket from the recommendation from Crutchfield Technical Services. I gave them the make and model of my tv (which was also purchased from Crutchfield) and the Tech Services folks gave me a couple options which would work. Delivery was timely and installation was fairly simple. There are three parts to the unit, one attaches to the wall and the other two attache to the TV. The TV units have a hook like bracket, which inserts into the "L" bracket of the wall unit, which allows for easy mounting and un-mounting of the TV. The bracket features separate tilt control on each TV-bracket, which makes for slow tilting action but allows for a more rigid overall design. At one point during installation, I accidentally unscrewed the tilt control from one of the TV brackets which added 30 min delay to the overall installation, which took approximately 60 min (which included moving out the furniture, finding the studs (30 min), rewiring, checking, and rechecking, and finally hanging the TV and testing the connections.
Pros:
3 simple pieces with plenty of versatility for different types of TV units Great recommendation from Crutchfield Technical Servies Sturdy units when installed properly
Cons:
Package did not include a stud finding :( Tilt controls are slow

Excellent!

Written By Dan, Sanford, NC on Tuesday, October 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Solid mount, great assortment of necessary parts, and easy installation. Crutchfield's "Height" ap is execllent and their technical support is outstanding. It took only an hour to install and mount my 52" Samsung and that long only because I was meticilous about the measurements and stud location. The tilt function is smooth and the TV stays where I position it. I could have bought a more expensive mount but my rep suggested this one was plenty and I could save a few bucks over another model.
Pros:
Sturdy, has the right parts, solid lug bolts, smooth tilt.
Cons:
None.

1 question already asked

When mounting the bracket on the TV how do I know if I have it centered evenly? [ Peter  Dec 31, 2013 ]
5 answers
  • first I find the stud that is going to hold the weight. Then I shift the bracket base to the most centered position I can get. Then I slide the TV to the best centered position and looks good. This is the second one I have installed. [ MICHAEL   Dec 31, 2013 ]
  • Thanks Sound easy to do. [ Peter   Dec 31, 2013 ]
  • Don't worry about it, just make sure you get the four lag bolts into studs. The brackets attached to the TV actually slide left and right on the wall mount so you have a lot of flexibilty centering the TV once you hang it on the mount. Just make sure the studs in the wall you use are as close to center as you can get of course. The brackets attach to the TV in already existing holes so you have nothing to worry about on the TV. Hope this helped. [ Richard   Dec 31, 2013 ]
  • Good evening...keep in mind that prior to mounting my TV on the wall, it sat on top of my audio cabinet in the exact location I wanted it. Keep in mind also, that I already had my Left and Right surround sound speakers mounted on either side of the TV. Because of the speakers, 100% centering the bracket was not be possible. I was more concerned with insuring I had two studs to secure the lag bolts into. I was able to adjust the TV, once mounted on the bracket, into the center of the space between my speakers. I liked this bracket a lot. The titling adjustment made is easy to connect everything once TV was properly positioned. [ Ira   Dec 31, 2013 ]
  • Peter, When I mounted my TV, the brackets do not have to be centered on the rear of the TV. The Mount has slides that enable the TV to move left or right after mounting both brackets. It is a nice wall mount. I mounted the wall plate on my studs with special bolts provided by Crutchfield for aluminum studs. Then mounted the other brackets on the TV. Lifted the TV onto the wall plate and slide it sideways to center it and then locked it down. Hope this helps. I used the bracket mounting holes provided by SamSung on my TV. You should have no problems. [ STEVEN E   Dec 31, 2013 ]
