Universal 23"-40" LCD TV ceiling mount
Our take on the Sanus MC1A by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sanus MC1A ceiling mount lets you place your LCD flat-panel TV in locations where wall-mounting isn't an option, such as in a corner of your room. It's designed to work with virtually any 23" to 40" LCD panel. A channel in the back of the mount keeps your TV's cables hidden for an uncluttered appearance.
You can swivel your TV 15° left or right, and tilt it up or down 15°. Sanus' Virtual Axis™ technology allows variable angle adjustment with just the touch of a finger. With Virtual Axis, the display stays exactly where you aim it, and you can lock the position by simply tightening a knob.
Will this mount work with my TV?

Where do I drill the holes?
Tell the Sanus HeightFinder™ Installation Assistant how high you want your TV, and it tells you exactly where to drill.
We needed two ceiling mounts to install TVs in our social quarters in front of a mirror & these mount worked perfectly. The price was fair & installation was easy.
