Our take on the Sanus VLMF109

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

Sit in your favorite chair and adjust your TV to the ideal viewing angle without moving a muscle. It's possible with the Sanus VLMF109 motorized wall mount. Press a button on the remote, and the mount's powerful motor silently and smoothly extends your flat-panel TV up to nine inches from the wall. Another set of commands makes the mount gently swivel the TV to the right or left, stopping precisely where you want it to.

The VLMF109 can support a flat-panel TV with a screen size ranging from 37" to 60" and weighing up to 110 lbs. The mount holds your TV a scant 2 inches from the wall when the arm is fully retracted.

Features

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLMF109 motorized full-motion mount for 37" - 60" TVs up to 110 lbs lets you find the perfect viewing angle without leaving your seat, via IR remote control. It offers ultra-quiet, fully automated extension up to 9" from the wall and up to 60º of swivel with the touch of a button. Its low-profile design retracts to just 2" from the wall for a flush appearance. The easy-to-install VLMF109 can shift left and right after mounting to ensure perfect TV placement, and its open wall plate design allows ample room for cable management.

Capacity: The VisionMount VLMF109 is designed for 37" to 60" flat-panel TVs. It has a maximum weight capacity of up to 110 lbs.

Bolt Pattern: The monitor bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) from 1" (25mm) up to 17.75" (450mm). The unit can expand horizontally for larger TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 5.375" (136mm) to nearly 31.6875" (805mm). The VLF220 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: For TVs with 400 x 400 spacing, remove the support tubes and release the locking carriages before attaching the bracket. After the brackets are attached to the TV, then re-secure the locking carriages and inert the support tubes.

Smooth Motorized Motion: The Sanus VLMF109 offers smooth, motorized motion that quietly moves your mounted TV up to 9" from the wall. For viewing angles anywhere in a room it also swivels 60º (left/right). The VLMF109 retracts to just 2.0625" from wall in the home position for a clean, low-profile appearance.

Note: You will need to plug the motorized wall-mount's power adapter into an AC plug.

Motorized with Remote Control: The Sanus VLMF109 motorized full-motion wall-mount includes an IR wireless remote control for easy extension, retraction, and swivel movements of the wall-mount bracket with the push of a button. The motorized wall-mount includes an IR emitter with an attached 58" cord, which plugs into the VLMF109's motorized arm for remote operability.

Preset Positions: You can program the Sanus VLMF109 to revert back to preset positions using the included remote control. The wall-mount bracket offers two preset positions.

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.

Open Design: The wall-mount's open design provides generous space for cable management.

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)
  • Drill with 3/16" bit for wood stud installations
  • Tape measure (ruler)

So convenient

Written By Pocketpeach, Staten Island, NY on Sunday, July 08, 2012
 
I have been using this mount for the past 4 months and have no issues with it. It is holding up a 46" flat panel TV and feels just as sturdy as any other mount. It works with my Logitech remote and has 2 memory functions. Easy to adjust and very convenient. The only thing that is lacking is a tilt function. All in all this is the best TV mount I've ever owned.
Pros:
Remote, memory functions, sturdy
Cons:
no tilt function
