Our take on the Sanus Premium Series VMT5

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The Sanus Premium Series VMT5 tilt mount features fingertip control so you can easily adjust the tilt without tools. The mount can support TVs with screen sizes from 40" to 50" and weighing up to 75 lbs.

Sanus premium series VMT5 tilt wall 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. Safety locks that close with audible clicks let 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

Tilting Design: The Sanus Premium Series VMT5 tilting mount gives you the best view of your wall-mounted television from the floor or couch. You'll be able to 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 television.

TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VMT5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 40" to 50", weight up to 75 lbs.

VESA Bolt Pattern: The VMT5 tilting wall-mount bracket accommodates a horizontal hole spacing on back of the TV of 100mm-500mm and a vertical hole spacing of 100mm-400mm. The Sanus VMT5 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:

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

Construction: The VMT5 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.

Perfect Positioning: Your TV can slide from side-to-side on the VMT5 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.

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.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VMT5:

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

  • TV Brackets:
    • Width = 2.3125"

Sanus Premium Series VMT5

Written By Anonymous, Redmond, WA on Saturday, May 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Product is well made, instructions clear. I had one small assembly issue where one (oversized) washer for a TV attach bolt contacted the adjacent pivoting wall bracket assembly.

I was impressed with Sanus customer service when I called to clarify which mount holes for my Sony TV should be used. They were friendly and knew exactly what I was seeing.

Sanus Premium Series VMT5

Written By ChrisS, Cuba, NY on Friday, May 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good solid mount. However, it comes with only one size bolt to hold the TV, requiring the use of spacers that I believe slightly weakens the system. It also comes with four lag bolts to install the mount to the wall. If your 16-inch-on-center studs do not allow you to center the mount, the instructions offer the option of using one stud in the center and drywall anchors on either side. The drywall anchors are not adequate for the lag bolts - they failed and chewed up my wall during the last half inch of screwing in the bolts. I had to improvise with smaller bolts and anchors - I just hope it holds. If I had a do-over, I'd get a slightly wider mount with more flexibility for choosing studs to use for centering it.
Pros:
Price; solidly made.
Cons:
Only one size TV bolt; inadequate drywall anchors.

SANUS VMT5 Wall Mount Rack

Written By Ray, Melbourne, FL on Thursday, April 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great rack for mounting flat screen to wall. I bought an 'open-box' unit to save a few bucks. Box arrived in good shape and fast. All interior packaging was intact with all parts provided per enclosed list. Instructions were easy to follow. Perfect fit for my flat screen and fairly quick installation. Easy!! and results are great!
Pros:
Very complete instructions, easy to follow. Also great support via the SANUS website with additional instructions, examples and videos. Also a tech line to call if needed. I didn't.
Cons:
None come to mind.

Solid Mount

Written By CDT, Saint Louis, MO on Wednesday, January 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good, solid mount. Installation was easy. I am by no means a craftsman, but was able to follow directions with the mount and install without any issue. I enjoy that the TV can slide left or right which allows me to center the TV on the wall. Also, the mount was 100% level when I mounted; however, the mount can be adjusted via screw to level. Range of mount is also good. I'd recommend this mount to anyone looking for a simple tilting mount.
