Product Research

Features

Product Overview: The Sanus VMPR1 is a universal ceiling mount for inverted LCD/DLP front projectors. The mount adjusts in all directions to give you a perfectly shaped projected picture.

Weight Capacity: The maximum weight to be installed on the mount is 50 pounds. It is recommended that the ceiling's structural members can support a redundant weight factor five times the weight of the equipment you intend to install. If the structure cannot support that amount of weight, the structure must be reinforced before you install the ceiling mount.

Construction: All components of the VMPR1 are made of heavy-gauge steel for a secure and long-lasting mount.

Main Parts: The VMPR1 consists of three main parts:

  • Flush Mount bracket: Mounts to ceiling; has slotted screw holes to allow adjustments for yaw position (rotation left or right)
  • Top Adjustable portion: Mounts to Flush Mount bracket; has adjustments for pitch (vertical elevation) and roll (horizontal tilt)
  • Bottom Adjustable portion: Mounts to Top adjustable portion and to projector; has 4 adjustable arms (and two extension arms if needed) to accommodate the projector's mounting holes. Each of the arms has adjustable leveling feet, so no spacers are required.

Quick Release Feature: You can easily remove and reinstall the projector without removing any screws. The top and bottom portions are held together using thumb screws and open ended screw holes. To remove, you simply loosen the four thumb nuts and rotate the projector counter-clockwise 1/8 of a turn.

Threaded Pipe Mount: The top portion of the VMPR1 has a 1-1/4" diameter internal threads to accommodate mounting to a 1-1/2" diameter extension pipe.

Mounting Recommendations: The Flush Mount bracket should be secured to a wood framing member, such as a ceiling joist, using the front and rear screw holes (5.25" apart). Screws up to 3/8" diameter can be used for joist mounting. For a solid back ceiling, you can use the four screw holes (3.71" apart in a square pattern) using four 1/4" lag screws. If the area is accessible from above, you may also use four 1/4" machine bolts, nuts and washers.

Supplied Hardware: The Sanus VMPR1 can accommodate a variety of projector mounting patterns and screw sizes. The mounting arms can cover an area approximately 12" in diameter. If the 2 extension arms are added, an area up to 18-1/2" in diameter can be covered. If the projector uses less than 4 mounting screws, the mounting arms can be removed. The VMPR1 also comes with the following hardware for attaching the projector:

  • M3 screws: 12mm long + M3 flat washers
  • M4 screws: 12mm long + M4 flat washers
  • M5 screws: 12mm long + M5 flat washers
  • M6 screws: 12mm long + M6 flat washers

Required Tools: You will need the following tools to install the VMPR1 ceiling mount:

  • Open End Wrenches: M10 and M12
  • Phillips Screwdrivers
  • Allen Wrenches: No. 1 and No. 2 Allen wrenches provided
  • Other: Other tools may be needed depending upon the method of installation

Customer Q&A

Q
Will this mount work with the Sony VPL-HW40ES project?

I'm not familiar with that sony projector. I used it on an epson 5030ub projector and it worked.
[ JOE  Jun 29, 2014 ]
A
I don't have a Sony projector so I can't answer for certain. The mount does come with extensions for the mount brackets and can fit a pretty big projector. I have an Epson which is quite large and it worked well for it. Could have fit a much smaller projector as well.
[ Ronald  Jun 29, 2014 ]
Q
I need a longer extension pole, can I use another company for the pole? what siz is it.
[ Gareth  May 26, 2016 ]

No, you'll need to get a ceiling mount with an extension that suits your height of installation.
[ Yancy  May 27, 2016 ]
Q
What is the overall assembled height of the mount without the extension pole installed? In other words how far down from the ceiling will a projector be without the pole?
[ DAVID  Jan 14, 2015 ]

A
The bottom of the mount where it meets the top of the projector is 4 inches from the ceiling. I wouldnt want the projector any lower and i am glad its not closer to the ceiling or i wouldn't get the wires through the mounting holes to connect to the projector. Hope that helps
[ JASON  Jan 15, 2015 ]
A
It does depend on the projector a little bit, but my Epson 5030UB is 5.5" down from the ceiling.
[ Mark  Jan 15, 2015 ]
A
I didn't use the pole and would estimate about 3 inches, maybe a bit more. It is a little clunky to assemble out of the box, but solid once you do! It has worked well for me.
[ MICHAEL B  Jan 15, 2015 ]
A
The top of the projector is about 6 inches from the ceiling but you can make about an inch of adjustment on the attachement points
