Our take on the Sanus VisionMount® SF208

by Ralph Graves

The Sanus SF208 holds flat-panel TVs with screen sizes up to 27", and it features an arm that can pivot out to hold your set up to 8" from the wall. A hollow channel inside the arm hides unslightly cables, presenting a clean, uncluttered appearance.

This compact mount lets you swivel your TV to the right or left, or tilt it up or down so your TV is positioned for optimal viewing. Sanus' Virtual Axis™ technology lets you smoothly tilt the mount with just a touch of a finger, so you can make precise adjustments. And the mount's "roll" adjustment lets you fine-tune your TV's placement after it's mounted to make the screen perfectly level.

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount SF208 is a full-motion wall mount for small flat-panel TVs and monitors. The SF208 features Virtual Axis technology that allows the mount to tilt up and down with the touch of a finger. Plus its "full motion" design allows the mount to extend, retract and swivel up to 8-inches from the wall for easy viewing from multiple angles. An adjustment knob enables you TV to move easily while maintaining tension, and an in-arm cable management easily conceals and routes your TV's cables. The SF208 also offers post-installation level adjustment to ensure your TV is perfectly aligned, even after hanging. The SF208 fits VESA 200 x 100, 100 x 100, and 75 x 75 to accommodate virtually any flat-panel TV or monitor up to 27 inches and 45 lbs.

VESA Compatible: This TV wall-mount uses VESA 75 (75 mm x 75mm), VESA 100 (100mm x 100mm), and VESA 200 x 100 (200mm x 100mm) mounting hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association. Only TVs that comply with VESA 75, 100, or 200 x 100 standards can be wall-mounted using this bracket.

Virtual Axis: Sanus' Virtual Axis technology allows the mount to tilt up and down with the touch of a finger, while its low-profile design places the TV just 3" from the wall when retracted. The mount's "full motion" allows the mount to tilt (+/-15°), swivel (+/-90°), Pan (+/-90°), and extend 8" from the wall for easy viewing from multiple angles. The adjustment knob enables the TV to move easily while maintaining tension.

Level Adjustment: Post-installation adjustment ensures the TV is perfectly aligned, even after hanging the TV. You can adjust the lateral roll adjustment approximately 1° in either direction.

Built-In Cable Management: The SF208's built-in cable management system protects and conceals your television's cables.

Wall Mounting: The wall plate should be mounted to a wood wall stud, solid concrete, or concrete block using the supplied wall-mount lag screws. Required tools: Drill with 3/16" bit, stud finder, box wrench or adjustable wrench, Phillips-head screwdriver.


  • Wall Plate: W = 2.375", H = 6.8125", D = 1.6875"
  • Monitor Mount: W = 9.0625", H = 5.6875", D = 2.3125"
  • TV Mounting Distance From Wall: 3" to 8" (TV mounted parallel to wall)

Good Product

Written By BobH, Atlanta, GA on Friday, June 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Very good product. Sturdy and easy to install.
Very sturdy. Only need to locate a single stud. Good for small to medium TV's.
Single small 8" arm does not provide a lot of extendability. May not be suitable for some applications (e.g., in a corner).

Good Product - Well Built

Written By Anonymous, Chicago, IL on Monday, March 15, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I was happy to see a heavy duty, well built mount when I opened the box. The
instructions were a bit sparse, but it's not exactly rocket science, either. It
took me 30 minutes to mount my 26" Sharp TV. I would definitely recommend this
