Our take on the Sanus VLF210

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The Sanus VLF210 makes it easy to wall-mount and position your flat-panel TV. This full-motion bracket can support TVs with screen sizes from 37" to 65" and weighing up to 150 lbs. The arm swings out to extend your TV up to 10-1/2" from the wall. The mount lets you swivel your TV from side to side, and you can also tilt it up or down for optimal viewing.

A smart design for easier mounting
Sanus' QuickConnect™ system lets you attach the mounting head — the part that attaches the back of your TV — by simply snapping it into the arm assembly. And you can disengage it with a button push — handy if you need to remove your TV for repairs or replacement.

Fine-tune your TV's placement
After installation, the mount's "roll" adjustment lets you fine-tune your TV's position to ensure that the screen is perfectly level. The arm assembly can also be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate to center your TV, even if your wall studs are off-center. Finally, the mount's hollow arm lets you thread cables through it, keeping them out of sight and free from tangles.

Features

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLF210 is a full-motion mount for large flat-panel TVs and monitors. The mount can tilt, swivel, and extend in every direction so you can attain the perfect viewing angle. This mounting bracket, black in color, features a built-in cable management system to conceal and protect your cables.

Capacity: The VisionMount VLF210 is designed for 37" to 65" flat-panel TVs. It has a maximum weight capacity of up to 150 lbs.

Bolt Pattern: The monitor bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) from 1.29" (33mm) up to 17.71" (450mm). The unit can expand horizontally for larger TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 5.35" (136mm) to nearly 31.69" (805mm). The VLF210 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the brackets to your TV.

VESA: Given the mounting bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association:

  • VESA 800 x 400
  • VESA 600 x 400
  • VESA 400 x 400
  • VESA 400 x 300
  • VESA 400 x 200
  • VESA 300 x 300
  • VESA 300 x 200
  • VESA 200 x 200
  • VESA 200 x 100
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.

Full-Motion: This full-motion mount extends (3.0"-10.5"), tilts (5°/-15°) and swivels (75°/-75°) for easy viewing anywhere in a room.

Virtual Axis: Sanus' patented Virtual Axis tilting technology allows effortless viewing angle adjustment without the use of tools by balancing the weight of the TV on itself. You can tilt the TV up or down with just the touch of a finger, and easily reduce glare and reflections caused by lights or windows.

QuickConnect System: Sanus' QuickConnect system allows the mounting head to snap onto the  arm assembly with one easy movement and unlock with the push of a button. This allows you to attach and detach the TV to the wall mount arm quickly and easily.

Post-Installation Level Adjustment: Post-installation level adjustment allows the TV to "roll" up to 5º clockwise and counterclockwise to ensure it is perfectly level, and lateral shift ability makes it easy to center the TV on the wall, even with off-center studs.

Cable Management: An in-arm cable management channel protects and conceals cables the length of the arm for a clean appearance.

Optional Speaker Mount: The Optional Sanus VisionMount VMA202 soundbar speaker mount (item # 051VMA202) attaches directly to this wall mount, allowing you to mount your soundbar, digital processor speaker, or center channel with no additional drilling under your TV. The VMA202's extruded aluminum and heavy-gauge steel construction is strong and sturdy, and holds speakers up to 35 lbs.

Wall Mounting: The bracket should be mounted to a wood wall stud, solid concrete, or concrete block using the supplied wall-mount lag screws. Required tools include:

  • Stud finder
  • Level
  • Awl
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Ratchet with 1/2" sockets (or 1/2" box wrench)

It is exactly what we were looking for! I love it!

Written By Richard L., Dallas, TX on Thursday, March 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
We were looking for a wall mount to mount our 64" Samsung plasma TV in a 10" rectangular slot that barely contains the TV - with about 1" gap on all sides. This mount works beautifully. We can pull it straight out of the slot or turn it a bit sideway. Besides, it was very easy to install and it is sturdily built.
Pros:
Easy to install, sturdily buit. Can come directly forward.
Cons:
None.

Sanus VLF210 Tv Mount

Written By Michael, Brandon, FL on Thursday, January 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I called Crutchfield to see if product was compatible with my Sony TV, they looked up my model number and said it was. I bought an "opened box" and everything was in it as if it had never been opened. However, when it cam to mount the TV the center support was identified in the manual as (required to be) needing to be positioned in the center of the TV. Unfortunately, as I was reading instrcutions and trying to install, I realized this. I called SONY for VESA hole pattern. They did not know the answer. I called Crutchfield and they did. Unfortunately, Crutchfield told me that the older age of my TV with the inputs located in the center of the TV made it literally incompatible with the Sanus TV nmount. They offered to contact Sanus Customer Support for me, but as it was late, I got the number and called them myself. Sanus said that all their mounts required that the center suoport be positioned in the middle of the TV and that most newer TV's had the inputs off to one side. When asked if they had a mount that would work with my TV, I was told ."no, all out tcv mounts require the center support to be positioned in the center. Long story short, I made the installation with the center support offset from center 2 5/8" and slid the center support extension arm to the extreme RH side of the wall mount and made it possible to view properly. I just wish that Crutchfield had informed me that my TV WAS NOT compatible with the Sanus VLF210 nor any Sanus TV mount.

Solid Performance

Written By Crutchfield Customer, California on Saturday, June 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Sanus full motion TV wall mount was straight forward to install with clear instructions. The dress covers make for a very clean installation and the sturdy swing arm means no TV wobble when it is re-positioned.

Crutchfield, as usual, delivered on time and provided good update emails along the way.
Pros:
Sturdy joints make for a very solid TV mounting platform. No TV wiggle.
Cons:
Not so much a Con as just be aware: The single swing arm means the TV's position on the wall moves side to side when the TV is positioned flat to the wall or fully extended. If you want the TV to stay in the same position on the wall (no left/right shift), consider a twin arm scissor joint configuration.

Not the right mount for my TV.

Written By Bob, Pocatello Idaho on Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I ordered this mount I was asked the model number of my TV, It's a Visio XVT3D58ocm. This mount was very difficult to put up as the TV kept tilting because of the weight and the TV is wider than most. I would not recommend this mount for this model of television. The person installing it for me finally had to attach a bolt in the back of the mount to keep the TV from leaning.
Cons:
Not the right mount for my TV.

Very Good Mounting for my 60''LED TV

Written By leek, Philadelphia, PA on Sunday, December 23, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This mounting system was a lot easier than the one that I bought at Costco. It was light. The full motion is very good for me because I can access the back of the TV without removing from the mount. My TV is above my fireplace. It worked well for what I wanted to achieve. I would recommend this to my friends.
Pros:
light and easy to install.
Cons:
More oval holes needed because it would help me center my TV perfectly.

Awesome mount

Written By GreggR, Westwood, Ma on Saturday, December 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great product. Very, very well built. Quite heavy. It's weight scared me a little when I pulled it out of the box, but its on the wall and securely mounted to the studs. Love the full range motion, highly recommend getting full range if your tv is higher than eye level and not in the center of your room. Great value for the price.
Pros:
Solid construction, works as advertised, great value
Cons:
None

Great Wall Mount

Written By Steve, MD on Sunday, November 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Set up was easy. This is very well constructed and the operation of moving the TV is very smooth. We hung an older Samsung 46 that is twice as heavy as the new Samsung 55. No problems at all.
Pros:
Works as advertised.
Cons:
None

AWESOME!

Written By retired@last, Moody, AL on Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this Sanus wall mount for the 46" Samsung Smartv we had also purchased from Crutchfield. This was the second wall mount I ordered. The first one was not full motion and after installing it, I found I needed a full motion wall mount. When I called to order this wall mount, the customer service agent told me he was sending an email with a return shipping label and instructions for returning the first one,before I even had to ask. I have had to call a couple of times to ask questions. I was immediately put through to tech support and the patiently walked me through my issues. I have been very impressed and pleased with Crutchfield from my first purchase
Pros:
Very well built and gives you confidence your television is securely mounted
Cons:
If you are not absolutely sure you can find the center of your studs, get some to install the mount.

Excellent Mount

Written By JeffW, Williamsburg, VVA on Thursday, February 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The end result was great. Puts the TV exactly where I wanted. However, since I had defined space limits in a cabinet for a 55" TV with little leaway regarding the studs I had to do some adjustments that included drilling a hole in the top mount. From my perspective, the major problem is you have a very narrow window of lateral movement on the frame for stud centering for larger TVs because you have a relatively small mounting frame width. This might not be a problem on an open wall mounting but in a defined space it is.
Pros:
Great look in the end and all the adjustments for leveling, swivel, etc. work great.
Cons:
The SANUS online height finder app would have produced a 7" error. Fortunately, I did my own calculations.

Perfect!

Written By Jake, Denver, CO on Wednesday, April 28, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I recently purchased this mount for my 46" Samsung LCD. It was a new product, but I've read about the quality of the Sanus mounts so I went for it. The main feature I liked about this mount is the small amount that it came out from the wall when you want to rotate the TV. I didn't need 2 feet of extension. The benefit is that the TV fits snugly against the wall. Installation was a breeze! I would recommend this mount to anyone.
