Our take on the Sanus Premium Series VLT5

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The Sanus Premium Series VLT5 tilt mount features fingertip control so you can easily adjust the tilt without tools. The mount can support TVs with screen sizes from 51" to 80" and weighing up to 125 lbs.

Sanus VLT5 tilt TV mount

The mount lets you tilt your TV up for easy cable connections.

A safe design for mounting

Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the mount just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know it's securely in place. The mount can be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is centered, even if your wall studs are off-center.

Features

TV Wall-Mount Bracket: The Sanus Premium Series VLT5 TV wall-mount bracket tilts to give you the best view from the floor or couch. The fingertip tilt allows for easy TV adjustments and tilts the TV back for easy cable access. The VLT5 wall-mount brackets allows your TV to slide from side-to-side for perfect positioning on the wall, and a safety tab provides a safe and easy connection you can hear.

TV Capacity: The VLT5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 80", weighing up to 125 lbs.

VESA Mount Bolt Pattern: The VLT5's TV bracket consists of two vertical brackets with multiple slots that can accommodate a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm on back of your TV. The vertical brackets slide along the VLT5's horizontally-mounted wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-700mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLT5 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the bracket to your TV. 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:

  • 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 400mm
  • 500mm x 300mm
  • 600mm x 400mm
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.

Wall Platte: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs or anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts (and wall-anchors). The slots in the wall plate can accommodate a variety of stud spacing, allowing you to easily mount the VLT5 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.

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

Adjustments: Your TV can slide left or right along the wall-mount bracket, allowing you to center the TV on the wall. There is also a level adjustment screw on top of either TV bracket to raise or lower the sides of the TV. In addition, you can tilt your TV from -7° to + 12° in order to give you a better viewing angle of your wall-mounted TV; tension knobs tighten the bracket in place. Tilting the TV also provides easier access to cable connections on back of the televisions.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT5:

  • Tape measure
  • Stud finder/level (included)
  • Drill
  • 7/32 Drill bit (for wood studs)
  • 3/8" Drill bit (for masonry)
  • 1/2" Socket wrench
  • Screw driver
  • Hammer

Great Product

Written By Saff, Morgantown,WV on Sunday, April 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to install. high quality, sturdy product, never disappointed with a Sanus tv mount. I used it to hang a 55" Vizio . I'm very happy with my purchase and would buy it again. It was easy for two people to hang the tv on the mount. The mount also leaves enough room away from the wall to connect your cables.
Pros:
easy to install, good directions, high quality product
Cons:
none
