Our take on the Sanus VLT15B

by Ralph Graves

The ultra-thin Sanus VLT15 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV a scant 7/8" from the wall. An innovative Virtual Axis™ system lets you tilt your TV forward for optimal viewing, despite its closeness to the wall. The VLT15 can support a TV with a screen size of up to 65", and a weight of up to 150 lbs.

The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. You can also make small adjustments after the mount is affixed to the wall to level it, or even change the height. 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.

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLT15 Super Slim tilting-mount places 37"-65" TVs just 0.875" from the wall, yet still allows up to 10° of tilting capability. The VLT15 features the revolutionary Adjustable Virtual Axis technology, which allows tilt tension to be adjusted to compensate for a variety of TV depths. Unlike other ultra-thin mounts on the market, the VLT15 also offers additional exclusive features that make it incredibly easy to install and use. ProSet post-installation height and leveling adjustments allow the TV to be perfectly positioned after hanging. ClickStand technology holds the TV away from the wall for easy cable access without having to remove the TV from the mount. Wall plate mounting holes are designed to accommodate 16" or 24" on-center studs.

Compatibility: The VLT15universal 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 150 pounds.

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. The ProSet feature allows you to also make height and level adjustments. 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 21.625" (550mm). Since the monitor brackets can slide on the wall plate, the horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV can range from 3.9375" (100mm) to 32.4375" (823mm).

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/Bolt Pattern: The VLT15 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 VESA100, 200, 400, 200 x 100, 300 x 200, 400 x 200, 400 x 300, 600 x 400, 800 x 400, and 800 x 500 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 VLT15'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 VLT15:

  • Stud finder
  • Awl
  • Level
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Electric drill
  • Drill bits: 1/8" (wood studs) and 5/16" (masonry)
  • Wrench or ratchet and socket: 1/2"


Wall Plate: W = 35.4375", H = 15.0", D = 0.875"

Monitor Brackets: W = 4.0" (4.1875" including knobs), H = 23.5", D = 0.875"

Nice and very slim mount

Written By D. Orr, North Texas on Sunday, January 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This mount has it all. It's very slim so be ready to have help during your TV mounting. I placed my TV over the fireplace so its pretty high. The mount has a "kickstand" so you can flip the bottom out and work behind the TV. Needless to say, if you have "man" hands this won't happen. It's just to slim. I had a three person install, two holding the TV and the third plugging everything up. We were able to mount the TV and then make some minor adjustments. Overall I'm very impressed with the mount and the TV is tilted the full 10 degrees forward and you still can't really see anything behind it. The TV was so heavy I didn't want to take it off the mount to make any small adjustments, like the moving the plastic tabs used to release the bottom.
Slim mount design! Adjustments after installation to level or adjust height. Construction material, it felt heavy duty.
Slim mount design. Just be ready it mounts so close to the wall there is no room to work behind it. Have people on hand and get everything hooked up and hang it.

Perfect fit.

Written By Rich, Pa on Monday, December 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this for the Sony XBR65 900A and was concerned that the 3" thickness at the bottom of the TV would not allow the tv to tilt enough. It worked out perfectly allowing the tv to tilt.
Easy install. Nice tilt and removing features.

Geat wall mount

Written By Tim, Bois D Arc, Missouri on Saturday, March 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great functioning wall mount. Easy to install and mount TV. I have a 60 inch Panasonic plasma mounted on this. Tilt and leveling functions worked well.
Nice slim mounting. Tilt and leveling work good.
Instructions could be somewhat more detailed. The click stands that hold the TV away from the wall for plugging in cables does not leave you very much room. But considering how close it mounts the TV to the wall its understandable.

quality Product

Written By Joe M, Long Island, NY on Thursday, August 18, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Quality Product. It took me a little time to sort out the installation process. This was the 1st time I attempted to mount a flat panel on the wall. The instructions were a little light, the pictures were good, but I sorted it out. Called SANUS customer service to confirm a few things - they were EXCELLENT!

Drilled an extra set of holes to mount on 3 studs and keep the frame centered. Worked fine.

Super stealth and sturdy.

I would definately purchase this product again.

Next time it will be a piece of cake to install (as always).

Sanus VLT15B

Written By RickA, Battleground, WA on Thursday, February 10, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Mount arrived with a broken rivet on the wall plate so I repaired that. It
appears sturdy enough but to support a 100 pound + tv I would prefer it to span
three studs on 16" center rather than two. The big issue for me was the "Pro
Set" leveling screws that are designed to be used to fine level the TV (+/-
0.25" on each side) once it is already up on the mount. They would not adjust
and I was unable to resolve a 3/8" out of level condition. Will probably be
