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.

Great mount!!

Pros: Flat to wall. Does not tilt on own. Strong.

Cons: Flat to wall so adding and extra cable is tough

perfect above fireplace

Written By David, Nellysford, VA on Thursday, September 10, 2015

This mount fits extremely close to the wall and we have a slight froward tilt. There are no wires visisble from the sides. Agaiin, this one is great for our 60" 4K.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This mount was easy to install. Comes with a template which is a big help. Plenty of hardware and good instructions. There is not much room to access the back of the TV with this mount.

Pros: Easy installation.

Cons: Poor access to rear connections

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easier than the old ones that you used to have a big allen wrench for. Did not tighten as tight, but it stays in place so no complaints. None of the included screws/spacers combination fit my TV flush (Samsung 65 inch). Luckily I had some screws left over from my old mounting kit (same brand) that fit perfectly. I needed the fat screws with a shorter length. Two fat screw types were included. One was too long with the spacer added, and one was too short with the spacer but too long without the spacer. If you don't have screws laying around, you can cut the spacers. Still would be nice if they included more like with my previous purchase of this brand.

Pros: Easy to install The template was good. First time I had seen one with a template. Good brand for TV mounts

Cons: Not too many choices on screws to fit your TV Tilt not as tight as older models

Great Product

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

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 Plate: 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
