No pressure, no commission — just lots of good advice from our highly trained staff.

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.

Nice mount, low profile

Written By Jared, Indiana on Friday, October 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Paired with a Samsung UN65JS8500 and it works/looks fantastic. Really low profile and there is no drifting because the TV is not heavy.

Pros: Low profile and easy to mount.

Cons: None

well built product - easy to install

Good choice

Written By Bob, Florida on Sunday, July 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well made especially with sale price.

Pros: Easy mount once you figure out the multi language folded instruction material, or once you just go ahead and mount it and ignore the instructions.

Cons: Tilt feature does not hold angle well, but full angle is perfect for my use so no problem for me.

Cons: none yet

So so

Written By Chris M, North Carolina on Thursday, June 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a bad product once it was done. The instructions left something to be desired. Having the booklet tell you to go to the Sanus website for positioning details was a pain in the butt. Also, they gave me mounting hardware for several different sizing options...and none of the hardware was the correct length for my TV (Crutchfield recommended this product for my TV) I ended up buying extra washers to make it work, which was fine, just not convenient while assembling on a Sunday night.

Pros: My TV hasn't fallen off the wall yet

Cons: It took far longer than it should have to get in on the wall

Sanus VLT15B

Written By Ricardo, Sugar Land, TX on Saturday, June 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this mount for my new Samsung 65" 4K UHD television. I wanted something that would mount the tv close to the wall and minimize any wiring behind it. I decided on this model, which met that need and also provide a tilting feature. Installation was straight forward. You do need to calculate the height of it based on the support location on your tv. I am sure those that do installations for a living, get it done very fast: however, first timers take it slow to avoid mistakes. Fortunately, everything went well and the tv is still hanging. Product is very well made and the hardware is more than adequate. This model keeps the tv tight against the wall which minimizes any wiring being seen behind it.

Pros: Close coupled to the wall for a clean installation and minimal wiring visible from the sides. Hangs tv close to wall like a big picture. Tilting feature is worth it, even if you don't use it. Helps in a smaller room.

Cons: More difficult to connect cables to tv because of reduced space between it and wall. It does have a couple of kick stands that hold it out a few inches but still makes it difficult. It may require you to make cable connections prior to hanging the tv on the mount. Lower locking release mechanisms are un-locked via two short cables/strings that dangle behind the tv. You need to make sure they are hanging down and can be reached from behind the tv before locking the mount down or extend them

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product. It went up in a snap. the TV was almost too easy to mount. I got it right the first time and I must have checked it a dozen times because I couldn't believe it was that simple.

Pros: clear instructions all nuts and bolts (plenty) included regardless of the specific type of TV

Cons: it would be nice if they gave you a little magnetic level.

Pros: Simple to install

Cons: NONE

Better than expected

Written By JZ, Southwest VA on Monday, February 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Extremely happy with the mount. I was a bit skeptical due to the age of the TV but installation was a breeze and the full tilt angle was perfect for the room but I can understand the previous reviewers frustration for lack of adjustability. I would recommend this to anyone who wants their TV mounted at the recommended height so the angle is not an issue.

Pros: Perfect fit to the TV. Attractive. Keeps TV tight to the wall. Great price.

Cons: None.

Sanus VLT15B mounting Sony XRB55X850 ultra HD 4k tv

Written By Home Theater Enthusiast, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and robust enough to support my Sony XRB55X850B Ultra HD 4k TV. "Snap away" feature allows easy access for cable installations behind the TV. I would highly recommend to a friend !

Pros: Professional looking satin black finish in combination with the slim profile makes this a Great Wall mount unit .

Cons: Assorted hardware is pretty good, however, the selected spacers I used for mounting Clearance required me to shorten the machine screws 1/4". Other than that the unit was an exceptional buy!

Discontinued for a Reason

Written By Daniel, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, January 13, 2015

This is a beautiful mount, and it isn't difficult to install. However, it has a FATAL flaw: The TVs will not stay in place. I contacted Sanus directly and was told that is the reason this product was discontinued. If you want your TV in full 10 degree tilt, it's great. We didn't, however, so we are going to be returning our mount. It was very irritating to reinstall the mount three times, only to watch it pop back to the full-tilt position again and again.

Pros: Beautiful, easy to install

Cons: The tilt only works in full-open position if your TV is heavy

Crutchfield response on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 Thanks for your review. Sanus confirmed that the VLT15B's low-profile design works best with slimmer, lighter televisions. It has difficulty holding positioning for heavier, deeper televisions. Our Advisors can help choose the best wall mount for your specific TV and installation. You can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Works as it should . . . but

Written By RickA, Knoxville, TN on Monday, December 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am removing a star from my rating for no other reason than the fact that the assembly and mounting instructions are so poorly done. As it turns out, it is a substantial enough unit that I had no qualms about hanging a 60" flat screen with it. And. . . it's really not all that hard to get the whole thing assembled and put to use. . . unless you try to use the directions. Throw them away, find the screws that are right for your television, mount the braces, then mount the frame securely to the wall, ignore everything else, and the Sanus VLT 15B will work as intended.

Pros: Substantial enough to cause no worries when hanging a 60" television.

Cons: The diagrams and instructions were fabricated by a surrealist.

Hard to Reach

Written By Greg, New York on Sunday, December 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am still not sure I am going to keep this wall mount. It positions the TV so close to the wall that it is hard to access the connection on the back of the TV. It is study and easy to mount on the wall, but is very limited in range of positioning and access to the back.

Pros: East to mount and sturdy.

Cons: Poor access to the back inputs and outputs on the TV. Limited range of positioning.

Quality Product

Written By Orly, Bronx on Monday, December 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With this I was able to install in 1.5 hours. I could only use two studs, each 16" apart, mostly because the tv would only center with two, but also the mount did not have holes close enough to the ends to hit another stud. Two studs top and bottom are more than adequate for my tv which weighs about 40lbs. I used wall anchors for the last two holes for good measure. I added spacers because my ethernet cable was not recessed. I also connected the wires to the back of the tv before mounting it to the wall. The mount locks into place with release cables to use the kickstand or to dismount the tv. The kickstand feature lets the bottom end of the tv move away from the wall to reach wires. The tilt is excellent; with just a push of the hand at the top of the tv it adjusts and stays where you left it. Read the instructions regarding the tilt feature and the thickness of your tv. Very easy to install with the right features to make installation simple as possible.

Pros: Easy to install, tilt and release mechanism

Cons: None

Quality product that is easy to install. Once you get the tv set on the top bar the bottom locks in place so you know you're set. Only complaint was the screws wouldn't work on my Samsung tv so had to go to the local hardware store to get the correct length

Easy to install but the tilt function does not lock if you have a heavy TV. Our TV is about 100 pounds and the tilt lock will not hold the TV. I had to rig the lock to hold the TV. Fingers crossed it holds up!

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Tilt lock does not lock on heavy TV's

Sanus VLT15B

Written By Bill, Ramsey, NJ on Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Essentially a straight forward install, though viewing videos on the Sanus website was helpful. Adding the brackets to my Samsung UN60H7150 was confusing at first because I was unable to determine the proper combination of spacers to complete the attachment. Ultimately I had to run to the hardware store just before they closed at 5pm on a Saturday (with Buckeye football looming in 3 hours!!!) to purchase additional washers to achieve the correct spacing. Once this was done though, I had no issues mounting the wall unit and attaching the TV. I even did this solo, though I would definitely recommend having assistance! One helpful note: be sure and attach all of your cabling (power, HDMI, infrared, RJ-45) BEFORE mounting the TV. Even with the kickstand feature, there's still not much room to work behind the TV.

Pros: Straight-forward overall install. Very sturdy. TV looks great, and I'm happy with the unit.

Cons: Did not come with correct spacers for my TV model. Kickstand feature still doesn't allow much (if any) room to work begind the TV

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mounting a Samsung 7150 65" tv was looking for a low profile quality mount with the smallest gap between wall and tv with a tilt mount . Sanus vlt15b was not only a great quality item but the price offered by Crutchfield was much cheaper than any other retailer with free shipping and fast . Searching the internet this was the best mount , unless you need a full movement . This mount has tilt only .

Pros: Great price . Easy installation . Quality price if they still have them available.

Cons: The only negative would be if you needed a full movement side to side .

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.

Pros: Slim mount design! Adjustments after installation to level or adjust height. Construction material, it felt heavy duty.

Cons: 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.

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.

Pros: Easy install. Nice tilt and removing features.

Cons: None.

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.

Pros: Nice slim mounting. Tilt and leveling work good.

Cons: 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. 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).

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

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

Product Research



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 100 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"
