The Sanus Premium Series VMF518 makes it easy to wall-mount and precisely position your mid-sized TV. This full-motion bracket can support TVs with screen sizes from 40" to 50" and weighing up to 75 lbs. The articulated arm extends your TV up to 18-3/4" out from the wall. The mount lets you swivel your TV from side to side, and you can also tilt it up or down for optimal viewing. You can also rotate the bracket 90° for either landscape or portrait viewing.
Sanus' tools-free assembly makes setup simple. Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the arm just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know the arm is securely in place.
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. Finally, channels in the mount's arm lets you thread cables through it, keeping them free from tangles.

Very easy to intall.
This mount is very well made, strong, and easy to install. Range of motion is very good, which is important during football season where seating arrangements vary.
Pros: Solid construction, looks good, easy to install.
Not hard to install but the TV does seem a little finicky when rotating it around. The TV mount is quite stable but the TV does not hold it's fine tuned positions as well as I would have hoped.
Pros: Easy install.
Cons: Lacks the ability to hold the TV in position i.e. it rotates more than I would like.
High quality product build. Installed in less than 20 minutes, easy to follow instructions and other than a few tools everything that I needed was included in the product package. Mount provided the range of movement for all our viewing angles. So pleased with the TV mount that I purchased another for a second bedroom. Very satisfied. Thanks Crutchfield.
Pros: Install , range of movement
Well built easy to install and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. After it was up performs perfectly. Well worth the price. I would purchase another without looking at any other product.
Pros: Well designed and well built
This is the second Sanus wall mount unit I've purchased and they are both exceptionally good products. It was almost a pleasure installing it because of the great design, hardware, and very clear instructions.
Pros: In this day of cheaply fabricated products and horrible instructions translated from three other languages, Sanus really stands out. It was designed with the installer and consumer in mind for a change rather than how to get something out the door cheaply. It even includes a very useful stud finder in the hardware pack along with every conceivable size of bolts, washers, and spacers to fit any TV. They really thought of everything.
Cons: None at all.
Full-Motion Design: The Sanus Premium Series VMF518 full-motion, wall-mount bracket provides a 4-points of movement for an optimal viewing position. The VMF518 extends from the wall (3.25"-18.75"), tilts up/down (+/-12°), and swivels left or right (+/-55°) for easy viewing anywhere in the room. The bracket can also be rotated 90° to the left or right for landscape or portrait viewing.
TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VMF518 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 40" to 50", weighing up to 75 lbs.
VESA Bolt Pattern: The VMF518 full-motion, wall-mount bracket accommodates a horizontal hole spacing on back of the TV of 200mm-400mm and a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm. The Sanus VMF518 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the bracket to your TV. It will accommodate the following VESA 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.
Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Wall Plate: The wall plate must be mounted to a wall stud or anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts (and wall-anchors).
Cable Management: An in-arm cable management channel protects and conceals cables the length of the arm for a clean appearance, while a decorative cover conceals assembly and mounting hardware of the wall-plate for a finished appearance.
Safety Tab: A safety tab provides a safe and easy connection you can hear.
Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VMF518:
