More details on the Sanus VMPR1
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
