Our take on the Sanus VLF320-B1

Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VLF320-B1 holds your medium-sized or large flat-panel TV just 1-1/4" from the wall when fully retracted. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outward up to 20".

Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VLF320-B1 holds your medium-sized or large flat-panel TV just 1-1/4" from the wall when fully retracted. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outward up to 20".

The mount's decorative cover conceals the assembly and hardware, giving it a finished appearance that complements your TV. An integrated cable management system keeps wires organized and out of sight without interfering with the motion of the extending arm.

This durable heavy-gauge steel mount supports a TV with a screen size up to 70" and weighing up to 120 lbs. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. And you can make fine adjustments after installation to keep your TV leveled.

Good mount, but some bumps in the road

William from Newton Center, MA on 12/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The mount is high quality, well thought out, and with good instructions. But... 1) despite listing it for my Samsung TV (65MU8000) the M8 bolts mounting the bracket to the TV were too short and I had to go to the home center to buy longer ones and 2) mounting the extension arms to the wall frame is picky -- arm part just couldn't center the holes in the frame so the hex screws would not go in -- I had to file the slot a bit bigger. OK in the end, but disappointing in something at this price point.

Pros: Good components, flexible mount, nice hardware, good instructions and support.

Cons: Unfortunate hardware hiccups.

Dean from Port Jefferson, NY on 6/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed many different types of wall mounts. It is on the expensive side but it is worth it. It is as simple to install as a fixed wall mount and it holds the TV nearly as close to the wall as fixed mount, but when you have to initially hook up a TV or make wiring changes, you will pull your hair out trying to do it behind a fixed mount.



Great fireplace wall mount!

Solid wall bracket

Crutchfield customer from Charleston, SC on 4/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very please with the wall bracket. Quality construction, sturdy, flexible and easy installation. Articulating arm extends acceptable length from wall and flush to the wall when not in use. Would recommend for medium to large TVs

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fairly easy to install. Struggled getting the little screws in that lock the piece into the mount.



65" Tv mounted

Brendan from Rocky Point, NY on 9/6/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything seems like quality parts, easy enough to install. Only problem is with my 65" tv it doesn't sit level all the time and when pushing it back or pulling out the tilt keeps moving even after I tighten proper screw. I wish I bought the other model from them to see if there is a difference. Tv doesn't sit level all the time even though the mount is level, something is flimsy just not sure what part. For the price I don't think it's worth it.

Pros: Easy install, gets the angle I wanted.

Cons: Some part seems flimsy so tv doesn't always sit level as well as tilt always changing when pushing or pulling.

Top of the line

David from Costa Mesa, CA on 6/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had an experienced TV guy install this onto my wall in my master bedroom suite. He's been doing this work 28 years and said: "I've never seen a better TV mount than this. It will hold any TV and this is top of the line." I was impressed and happy to have made such a solid choice. Thanks, Sonny! I'll definitely be buying from you again.

Pros: High quality. This Sanus product is the best you can find.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. Easy to install. Great range of motion

Pros: Thin and ease of motion

Cons: none

Anywhere you want to go.

Articulatin' from Arkansas on 8/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I liked it a lot better after I finally got it up. I'm probably not the first one to have that response. It does a nice job of articulating anyway you want to go.

Pros: Solid as a rock. Strong enough to attach a trapeze to it if you've got any strength left after getting it up.

Cons: A good exercise in patience and concentration required for assembly.

Always a fan of Sanus Mounts

Kevin from SF, CA on 5/21/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Putting up an articulating mount can be tricky. Use patience and read directions! I've always been a fan on Sanus mounts. They are generally well built and their website offers a really good guide to determining the right height to install the mount on the wall. Look for it: height finder!

Pros: Low profile for an articulating mount

Cons: must be patient with installation...but come on, anything worth doing is worth doing right!


Will from California on 5/13/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is our second Sanus wall mount and the overall high quality is the same. Prior to purchasing we contacted Sanus direct with some questions and their customer service was great. The motion is smooth and the 65 inch TV feels secure when the mount is in motion.

Pros: Nothing was missing from the box. TV is close to the wall when full motion is not needed.


Flimsy Wall Mount

Cdam from Crystal River, Fl on 11/8/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was attaching a 70" TV to this bracket. Mounted unit to the wall and the pice that mounted to the TV had some play in it. You could move the mount piece back and forth with your hand and it had a fair amount of play in it. Then when you mount (hang) the TV to that piece (that has the small amount of play in it) , there is a TON of play in the TV out on the edges. When you grab the TV and move it around it felt VERY unsafe. I pulled the TV off this bracket and pulled this bracket off the wall. Although Sanus says this mount fits up to a 70" TV, they are right it does, but I don't think it is made for a 70" TV. Probably works best on a smaller TV with a thin frame.

Pros: Articulating

Cons: Too much play, felt very unsafe.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLF320 is a super-slim, full-motion wall-mount for large flat-panel TVs and monitors. This full-motion mount allows you to easily aim the TV for viewing virtually anywhere in the room. 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. The mount is ultra slim, placing your TV only 1.25" from the wall, but can extend up to 20.8125".

Construction: The wall-mount bracket is made from solid heavy-gauge steel, with a durable powder coated black finish. It comes with a decorative cover to hide assembly and mounting hardware for a finished appearance.

Capacity: The VisionMount VLF320 is designed for 51" to 70" flat-panel TVs. It has a maximum weight capacity of up to 120 lbs.

Bolt Pattern and VESA: The vertical brackets that attach to the TV can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) between 25mm and 420mm. The horizontal brackets can be adjusted to accommodate a horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV from 146mm to 730mm. The VLF320 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts to mount the brackets to your TV. For TVs with curved rear panels, an assortment of spacers is included for proper mounting. Given the range of motion, the mount will accommodate the following VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting hole patterns:

  • 200mm x 100mm, 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 200mm, 300mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 200mm, 400mm x 300mm, 400mm x 400mm
  • 500mm x 400mm
  • 600mm x 400mm
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 w/ Fingertip Tilting Technology: You can laterally shift the TV along the wall plate for ideal placement. Fingertip tilting technology provides smooth tilting with the touch of a finger from 0° to -10°. The VLF320 can sit as close as 1.25" from the wall or extend out from the wall up to 20.8125". You can also swivel the wall-mount up to +/- 33°. When you have positioned the TV where you want it, you can lock the mount into place to prevent further movement.

Post-Installation Level Adjustment: Post-installation level adjustment allows the TV to "roll" up to 1.5º clockwise and counterclockwise to ensure it is perfectly level, and lateral shift ability makes it easy to center the TV on the wall, even with off-center studs.

Cable Management: With its integrated cable management system, the VLF320 keeps loose cables organized and concealed within the extension arm for a clean appearance without compromising TV motion.  A decorative cover also conceals assembly and mounting hardware.

Wall Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to a wood wall stud (16" to 24" on center) or a solid concrete or concrete block wall. It is not designed for use in metal stud walls. The wall must be capable of supporting five times the weight of the TV and mount combined. Tools required for mounting include: a Phillips-head screwdriver, 1/2" socket wrench, electric drill, 7/32" drill bit (for wood studs), and 3/8" masonry bit (for concrete or block). To properly position the mount, you'll likely need a pencil, awl, level, tape measure, hammer, and stud finder as well.


  • Wall Plate: Width = 31.5", Height = 13.1875". Depth = 0.875"
  • TV Bracket Assembly: Width = 32.1875", Height = 19.6875", Depth = 1.25"-20.8125"
  • Vertical Brackets: Width = 1.4375", Height = 20.125", Depth = 1.0"

John, We purchased this mount in April of this year for our 65" flatscreen. The TV feels secure and solid while using the multi motion. Also, the TV is close to the wall when pushed all the way back. Lastly, everything that was supposed to be in the box was in the box and everything Sanus includes made the installation a breeze. [ william  Jun 22, 2015 ]
Yes it will but the single arm mount works better. [ RICHARD  Jun 04, 2015 ]
Yes, I have it as the wall mount for my curved Samsung 4K 3D 65 inch tv. [ ELIAS  Jun 01, 2015 ]
