Our take on the Sanus VMF220

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

Easily position your flat-panel TV for optimal viewing with the Sanus VMF220 full-motion wall mount. It can support a TV with 32"-47" screen size and weighing up to 100 lbs. An articulated arm extends your TV up to 20" out from the wall. You can also swivel your mounted TV from side to side, and tilt it up or down for precise positioning.

A smart design for easier mounting
Sanus' QuickConnect™ system lets you attach the mounting head by simply snapping it into the arm assembly. And you can disengage it with a button push — handy if you need to remove your TV for repairs or replacement. Decorative covers conceal the mounting hardware, giving your installation a finished appearance.

Fine-tune your TV's placement
After installation, the mount's "roll" adjustment lets you fine-tune your TV's position to ensure that the screen is perfectly level. The arm assembly can also be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is centered, even if your wall studs are off-center. And the mount's hollow arms let you thread cables through them, keeping them out of sight and free from tangles.

Features

Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VMF220 is a full-motion mount for medium flat-panel TVs and monitors. The mount can tilt, swivel, and extend in every direction so you can attain the perfect viewing angle. This mounting bracket, black in color, features a built-in cable management system to conceal and protect your cables.

Capacity: The VisionMount VMF220 is designed for 32" to 47" flat-panel TVs. It has a maximum weight capacity of up to 100 lbs.

Bolt Pattern: The monitor bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) from 3.9375" (100mm) up to 15.75" (400mm). The unit can expand horizontally for larger TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 3.9375" (100mm) to nearly 19.685" (500mm). The VMF220 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the brackets 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:

  • VESA 100 x 100
  • VESA 200 x 200
  • VESA 200 x 200
  • VESA 300 x 200
  • VESA 300 x 300
  • VESA 400 x 200
  • VESA 400 x 300
  • VESA 400 x 400
  • VESA 500 x 400
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.

Full-Motion: This full-motion mount extends (3.8125"-20.0"), tilts (5°/-15°), and swivels (+/-75°) for easy viewing anywhere in a room.

Virtual Axis: Sanus' patented Virtual Axis tilting technology allows effortless viewing angle adjustment without the use of tools by balancing the weight of the TV on itself. You can tilt the TV up or down with just the touch of a finger, and easily reduce glare and reflections caused by lights or windows.

QuickConnect System: Sanus' QuickConnect system allows the mounting head to snap onto the  arm assembly with one easy movement and unlock with the push of a button. This allows you to attach and detach the TV to the wall mount arm quickly and easily.

Post-Installation Level Adjustment: Post-installation level adjustment allows the TV to "roll" up to 5º clockwise and counterclockwise to ensure it is perfectly level.

Cable Management: An in-arm cable management channel protects and conceals cables the length of the arm for a clean appearance.

Optional Speaker Mount: The Optional Sanus VisionMount VMA202 soundbar speaker mount (item # 051VMA202) attaches directly to this wall mount, allowing you to mount your soundbar, digital processor speaker, or center channel with no additional drilling under your TV. The VMA202's extruded aluminum and heavy-gauge steel construction is strong and sturdy, and holds speakers up to 35 lbs.

Wall Mounting: The bracket should be mounted to a wood wall stud, solid concrete, or concrete block using the supplied wall-mount lag screws. Required tools include:

  • Stud finder
  • Level
  • Awl
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Ratchet with 1/2" sockets (or 1/2" box wrench)
  • Drill with 3/16" bit for wood stud installations
  • Tape measure (ruler)

Dimensions:

  • Wall Plate: 10.0625" wide x 1.25" deep x 13.75" tall
  • TV Bracket: 19.5625" wide x 1.125" deep x 21.1875" tall

One of the Best!

Written By Lloyd, Powhatan, Virginia on Sunday, April 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've had several wall mounts in the past few years and this is the best yet. I mounted my new 48" Sony near a corner in less than 30 minutes and it will adjust to any angle I need. It is very smooth and strong. It does everything the description says and I would highly recommend it. Perfect for me...
Pros:
Easy to install, strong, and adjusts easily.
Cons:
None yet.

Clean lines, easy to mount and adjust. Seems strong enough to safely support the TV. Arrived with a broken friction pad on vertical adjustment, but replacement was sent promptly by manufacturer.

Great product!!!!!

Written By Mark M., Chester, VA on Wednesday, July 20, 2011
 
I installed this with a Samsung UN46D7000 and it works great! It took about a half hour to install. The arm was not as long as I thought it would be but it still works well. The price is a little high but worth the money.

this does not fit a Sony Bravia 46 tv .

Written By Lord, Rock Springs WY on Saturday, June 25, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This does not work. I bought a new 2011 Sony Bravia 3-D tv. looking for a swivel tilt wall mount. I was told this would fit it, WRONG it does not the holes don't match up to the bracket. So pass this one by.

Great for corner placement

Written By Paul S., Brownsdale, MN on Wednesday, May 25, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed my 46 inch Samsung in a corner using this mount, it was simple to assemble and attach to a wall stud. You will need a helper to line-up the panel bracket to the mounts attachment point, the end of the articulatin arm itself. It tilts easily although after leveling the panel in the corner it tends to lose level as the arm is extended but returns to level as it is pushed back into the corner. Not suprising for an arm that can extend 20 inches. I recommend this mount to those looking to mount a flat panel in a corner.

Sanus VMF220

Written By Mike W, Newark DE on Thursday, February 10, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
praise: solid construction and finished appearance.
drawbacks: causes off center tv location when pushed back to wall, instructions are
minimal, my tv (sony bravia lcd) required the unfortunate use of multiple spacers to
achieve acceptable bolt depth. Shorter bolts would have helped greatly!
