Our take on the Sanus VLT14

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The ultra-thin Sanus VLT14 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV just 13/16" from the wall. It's the ideal wall-mount for many of the latest ultra-thin TVs. This durable heavy-gauge design is strong enough to keep your TV firmly in place, and can support a TV with a screen size up to 65" and weighing up to 130 lbs. Plus the adjustable Virtual Axis lets you tilt your TV up to 10° forward for better viewing.

The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. 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.

Features

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLT14 Super Slim tilting-mount places 37"-65" TVs just 0.875" from the wall, yet still allows up to 10° of tilting capability. The VLT14 also offers additional exclusive features that make it incredibly easy to install and use. The VLT14 features the revolutionary Adjustable Virtual Axis technology, which allows tilt tension to be adjusted to compensate for a variety of TV depths. ClickStand technology holds the TV away from the wall for easy cable access without having to remove the TV from the mount.

Compatibility: The VLT14universal wall-mount bracket is designed to fit flat-panel plasma and LCD monitors from 37" to 65". The TV can have a maximum weight of 130 pounds.

Note: Wall plate mounting holes are designed to accommodate 16" or 24" on-center studs.

Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.

Super Slim Design: This super slim tilting mount sits just .875" from wall to complement the sleek look of ultra-thin flat-panel TVs.

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. After the TV is secured, it will be held approximately 0.875" from the wall.

Note: Each monitor bracket has multiple bolt holes and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) up to 20.0625" (410mm). Since the monitor brackets can slide on the wall plate, the horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV can range from 5.75" (147mm) to 31.675" (804mm).

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: The VLT14 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 VESA 200 x 100, 200 x 200, 300 x 200, 400 x 200, 500 x 200, 300 x 300, 400 x 300, 400 x 400, 500 x 400, 600 x 400, & 800 x 400 mounting hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association.

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.

Virtual Axis Technology: Once the TV is secured to the wall, you can adjust the TV's angle. With the Virtual Axis fingertip tilt system, the TV can tilt 10° down, and you can lock the position by simply tightening a knob on each monitor bracket.

ClickStand: The VLT14's ClickStand feature allows you to tilt the bottom of the TV outward 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.

Quick Release Tabs: Convenient quick-release tabs stay hidden behind your mounted TV, and easily pull down to unlock it from wall plate for cable access.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT14:

  • Stud finder
  • Awl
  • Level
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Electric drill
  • Drill bits: 7/32" (wood studs) and 3/8" (masonry)
  • Wrench or ratchet and socket: 1/2"

Dimensions

Wall Plate: W = 32.5", H = 3.75", D = 0.4375"

Monitor Brackets: W = 3.5", H = 17.25", D = 0.75"

Tilting feature helps

Written By Tim, Austin, TX on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A little thin on thickness which allows it to flex, though decent mount for the price
Pros:
I'm glad I spent the extra money for the tilting feature because it really helped position the tv for optimum viewing.
Cons:
Had to drill out and file the mounting holes for it to align to the TV mounting holes...was a hassle!

Works perfectly

Written By LAC, Indianapolis on Sunday, February 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is one of those products that sort of "is what it is". All I can say is that this bracket worked perfectly with my 65-inch Sony that I also ordered from Crutchfield. I had my audio/visual guy install this bracket and mount the TV, so I didn't personally assemble it, but I can confidently say the results are beautiful. I also love the fact that I can tilt the TV (although once I got it exactly how I wanted it, I've left it in place).

Sanus VLT review

Written By JohnDD, Oakton, VA on Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Expected more for the price. One of the pull tabs was broken out of the box...very cheaply made and poor design. The mount is working but the mechanism that enables you to pull the television away from the wall to access the connections is very limited and while it helps a little it is an acrobatic exercise to access hdmi connections on back of my 50" Samsung LED-LCD display. The mechanical function is also fairly rough and not great for certain painted surfaces.
Pros:
Fairly low profile
Cons:
Access to ports very limited. Cheaply made pull tabs for access function and very rough mechanical operation.

Good mount, but not a great mount

Written By KarlR, Sandy Hook, VA on Wednesday, December 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a very good mount, but not great. The instructions leave a lot to be desired, and mounts to make it fit flat for your TV are cheap felling. End of the day if you take your time and can figure out how everything works it does the job just fine.
Pros:
Sturdy, clean look
Cons:
Poor instructions.

This is a great TV mount for the wall, it is very close to the wall and you can tilt the TV if you need to plug in your cables. I would tell anyone to buy this product, its GREAT.

Doesn't swing out much

Written By JeffR, Cumming, GA on Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Okay and looks good against wall. But thought it would be easier to access back of tv based on description. Pretty tough to do that. But keeps it flat against wall and looks great.

Sansus wall mount

Written By Tom L, Mandeville, la on Thursday, June 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very slim mount. Very easy to install in brick. The design also made it easy to hang TV. I would recommend that sanus give better instructions as to size of bit to use to drill hole for anchor. My second sanus in the last couple of months and I am very happy with the quality.
Pros:
Slim
Cons:
Needs better instructions.

Sanus VLT14

Written By Satisfied Customer, Toledo, Ohio on Sunday, April 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this wall mount braket to make space in our living room and so we get rid of the hardwood table which the TV was currently on. We have a newborn at home who is recently mobile and fascinated with wires. He had also bonked his head twice on the table. Upon receiving the package in under 48 hours after placing the order. I was able to istall the bracket and have the TV mounted in less than 30 minutes. Coupled with the Sanus VF2012 shelving unit our floor is now a playground and there is not a single wire for the little man to find anywhere.
Pros:
Shipping, ease of installation

Sanus VLT14

Written By Fred S., Hanover, Ma. on Saturday, December 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am in full agreement with the need for better instructions, they need to be more brand specific. Selecting the right spacers was another issue, I just used the spacers that came with my Samsung. Because of the proximity to the wall, I needed to get a ninety degree adapter for the rear HDMI connections. The side connections have no issue on my particular TV. The quality of the product is good, and I am happy with the end result. This was for a Samsung UN55ES6100, also purchased from Crutchfield.
Pros:
Quality, tilt feature
Cons:
Non-brand specific instructions; Need to be aware of closeness to wall for rear connections. Will be a real issue if all connections are on the back of the TV only with none available on the side.

Written By Jay, Arlington, VA on Sunday, October 16, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The only thing a little tricky was figuring out which length bolts and combination of spacers would work best for our Samsung UN55D7000, but it worked out fine in the end. After attaching the hangers to the TV, it was easy to hang the TV on the wall mount bracket, and to take it back off easily for adjustment. It is very flat against the wall, so it could matter just where your plugs are. The 10-degree tilt actually gives it a good range of comfort. Pretty nice design overall.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
SANUS needs to make installation instructions for all TV's, not just a generic install example. I had to research my HDTV thru Sony and cross reference to find the exact locations for install. Pull down tabs were too long for my 55" Sony. I trimmed them shorter to hide behind the HDTV once mounted. Otherwise, good slim mount.

very thin !!

Written By mikemin, augusta, ks on Tuesday, March 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
this mount is very thin. so thin that i had to use the video input on the side of
our tv. The reason is the video connector on the HDMI cable was pressed
against the wall and i did not want to damage the connector on the tv. The
install was easy, the instructions were horrid though. you will need 2 people to
get the tv on the mount. overall i am happy with the purchase
