The Premium Series Sanus VML5 fixed position mount is a great choice if you simply want to install your TV flat against the wall. This slender mount holds your TV just 1-1/4" away from the wall, and it can support a TV with a screen size up to 50" and weighing up to 125 lbs.
Sanus' ClickStands hold your mounted TV out at an angle, making cable connections easy.
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. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know the TV bracket is securely in place.
A handy ClickStand at the bottom of each vertical brace swings out so you can temporarily prop your mounted TV away from the wall, to make cable hookup a breeze — without removing the TV from the mount.

Tell the Sanus HeightFinder™ Installation Assistant how high you want your TV, and it tells you exactly where to drill.
Although the mount was compatible with the TV I was hanging, the Sanus installation instructions were not available on their online support page. But that didn't matter. Most of the mounts are based on the same support concept. Very easy to hang. Access is pretty convenient for this type of mount as well.
Pros: Price Ease of installation
This is a simple mount and seems fine for the purpose intended
Pros: Good quality mount
Cons: instructions were not clear enough. Had to call to get a little help
I found this mount a breeze compared to other mounts I have worked with. well constructed. the stand- out feature makes attaching cables very easy to attach. Two problems: the cords to activate the stand- out feature were hard to pull; leaving me with the concern that I might break them. I would of liked a locking mechanism on top of the mount; particularly, when having the stand-outs activated. this left the tv vulnerable to falling off the wall when the stand-outs were activated. not a pleasant feeling.
Pros: novel but good design; easy to attach to wall.; stand-out feature enabling cables to be attached after fixing tv to the wall are a definite plus
Cons: needs easier to pull stand-out cords; needs locking mechanism on top of mount
Easy to install. Comes it with its own leveler!
Pros: Easy to install and to hang your TV.
Cons: It's easy to snap off the string on the mount that you have to pull in order to get the TV close to the wall.
Fixed-Position: The Sanus Premium Series VML5 fixed-position wall-mount bracket is perfect for viewing your wall-mounted flat-panel TV at eye level.
TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VML5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 40" to 50", weighing up to 75 lbs.
VESA Bolt Pattern: The VML5 wall-mount bracket accommodates a horizontal hole spacing on back of the TV of 100mm-400mm and a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm. The Sanus VML5 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 VML5 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Perfect Positioning: Your TV can slide from side-to-side on the VML5 wall-mount for perfect positioning 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.
Note: 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 wall studs 16" on center.
Safety Tabs: Once the wall bracket is anchored to the wall studs and the two TV brackets are attached to the back of your television, the two TV brackets hook into the wall bracket. Integrated safety tabs on the TV brackets provide a safe and easy connection to the wall bracket you can hear.
Click Stands: Built-in ClickStands on each TV bracket temporarily hold your mounted TV out from the wall for easier cable connections.
Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VML5:
