Our take on the Sanus VisionMount™ VMTV

by Ralph Graves

The Sanus VisionMount™ TV mount lets you place your traditional CRT TV almost anywhere. The VMTV's heavy-gauge steel arm supports a platter that can expand to hold almost any TV with a screen size between 13" and 27." The arm rotates 170°, and the platter rotates a full 180°. The platter also can be adjusted downward by as much as 10°, so you position your TV exactly where you want it.

You can even add another component such as a DVD player or game module with the companion VMBR bracket.

Compatibility: The VMTV universal wall-mount bracket is designed to wall mount CRT tube televisions from 13" to 27". The TV can have a maximum weight of 100 pounds.

Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder coated finish.

Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to a wood wall stud using the supplied lag bolts. Once the wall plate is anchored to the wall stud the arm is bolted to the plate and the platter is bolted to the arm. With the arm perpendicular to the wall the the TV screen parallel to the wall, the edge of the platter is 22-1/2" from the wall. Because the platter rotates and the joint between the arm and wall plate swivels, the platter will swivel as much as 70° left or right, limited by size of the TV. The platter also has three tilt positions; 0° (horizontal), -5° (down), and -10° (down).

TV Pad: The four TV pads are adhesive backed and mount to the platter so the TV doesn't slip.

TV Strap: With the TV in place, the adjustable safety strap threads through the platter and around the TV to hold it in place.

TV Platter Dimensions:

  • Width=16.05"-27.125"
  • Depth=12"

High Quality - Easy To Install

Written By Kent R., Albert Lea, Minnesota on Thursday, March 10, 2011
This Sanus TV Wall Mount is a high quality product. Every piece in the box was
individually packaged and numbered, which made the installation an easy process.

I highly recommend this product to anyone who may have an older model TV that
they would like to mount to the wall.

Lastly the Crutchfield product order team made it easy to order, followed up
with an email confirmation, and we received our order in just a few days.

Great service !

Great mount!

Written By StacyB, Orlando, FL on Monday, September 13, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Assembly instructions were a very simple. Our only obstacle was that we had to
purchase different screws to mount in concrete block wall. Adjustable platter holds 25"
tube TV securely. Very happy with purchase!

Excellent well made mount, easy install

Written By eg, East Coast on Wednesday, December 17, 2008
My experience with tube tv wall mounts had been a disaster prior to using this mount. I've had a tv fall, the mount loosen, etc. but this mount changed my whole perspective on these types of mounts. Although the market has shrunk for tube tv's I highly recommend this Sanus mount if you are still looking for one of these. It was very easy to install into a stud (use a stud finder) and held with ease. I was so weary of it being able to hold our 21" TV/DVD combo tv, even though it says it can take 27". Our tv is pushing 70lbs and this thing had no problems holding it up and has shown no effects of sagging. An all around excellent, well made mount that is safe to use for heavy tvs (says up to 100lbs) and easy to put together even for a novice.
