Overview

Our take on the Sanus Classic MLF13

The full-range Sanus Classic MLF13 mount gives you plenty of options for positioning your TV. It can hold it just 2-7/8" from the wall, or extend it outward a full 14". You can swivel the TV left or right up to 45° and tilt it up or down as far as 11° for optimal viewing. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. The MLF13 can support a TV with a screen size of up to 80", and a weight of up to 130 lbs.

Good solid wall mount for large tv (65" flat screen). Make sure you follow the instructions and sort all the necessary screws/bolts washers as it can get confusing if they're scattered all over the floor. Tilt needs to be tightened/adjusted as it can slip, but have not had a major issue so far

Eric from San Francisco, CA on 5/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These mounts are very sturdy and feel very solid cannot go wrong with sanus products. The only problem with this mount is there are tv's that have inputs located near the right vertical support bar and these might cause some problems with other TV's. I bought a 75 sony x900e and there's just enough room for the hdmi and optical for me to hook it up. It's a tight fit but it works! Also unlike stuff you buy at amazon the instructions are very clear and the product is very easy to assemble.

Pros: Worth every penny. Quality product.

Cons: The right vertical support bar might interfere with tv's that have inputs around this area. Research first!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality Item. Built well. Installation instructions are very good so install was easy. Fit TV perfectly. Only slightly negative comment I would have is that Tilt (up/down) seemed to not hold as tight as I would have liked so went out of adjustment while I was adjusting for other factors. Would not prevent me from purchasing another though.

This product was favorably reviewed, and proved to be as described. Heavy duty, well-designed, relatively easy to install, and pivots through its positions as expected. It arrived in a timely fashion, and I am enjoying it every day. Plus, mine was a scratch-and-dent opportunity for a great price. While it apparently been a return to Crutchfield, there were no scratches, dents, or defects whatsoever. Crutchfield scores again!

Cons: None

Could use a few changes

Richard from Wi on 3/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Would be five stars if they included a wider selection of bolts to accommodate the wide assortment of tv models. The samsung 8000 series in 65 inch uses two different lengths of m8 and neither length was supplied. Also the 8-32 screw that secures the mount to tv should be hex instead of Phillips to allow adequate tightening. Mixing metric and UN sizes doesn't make a lot of sense. A well built unit that should work well.

Pros: Price

Cons: Needs more hardware options.

Excellent product. Exceptionally sturdy and well-built. The instructions for mounting it are among the best I've ever experienced.

Pros: Quality, mounting instructions.

Cons: It comes with an array of VESA bolts. However, mine needed a 45mm which I had to order on my own.

The mount is well made and relatively easy to install. The only problem I had was installing the mounting plate too high on the wall . Measure closely to insure the right height.

Pros:

Cons:

Versatile, heavy-duty, great mount.

Thomas from Denver, CO on 1/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very happy with this purchase. The construction is very durable and high quality. It offers a lot of mounting options and made installation and setup nice and easy. Because of the versatility and strength of the mount, I was even able to move my TV up on the brackets and mount my passive 3 channel sound bar underneath on the same mount and am still only at about 25% of the maximum weight rating.

Pros: Multitude of mounting options on brackets in all directions.

Cons: If you're looking for a flat wall mount, this isn't it because of all the hardware and pivot points it offers. But if you're looking for a full-range mount, you're also probably not looking for a flat wall mount either.

Sanus Mounts are worth their cost

Lee from Granite Shoals, TX on 1/11/2018

Sanus mounts cost more than the other brands, but are well worth the difference. Quality components and hardware with clear instructions make these mounts successful every time.

Pros: Quality hardware and components

Cons: None

Very good product overall.

William from Springville, AL on 12/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good product overall. With a couple of "minor" tweaks, I was able to use it to mount my 82" flat screen to the wall. The plate that attaches to the studs in the wall is very stable, but should be longer for a more secure mount. I was able to overcome this by first mounting two decorative 2"x6" boards the length of the TV to the wall studs, then mounting the plate to them. The mechanism to adjust the "pivot" feature for the TV could stand to be a little more "heavy-duty" as it allows TV to tilt to one side or the other when swiveling ....can't figure out why anyone would want to pivot the TV anyway. Also, the bolts to mount the TV to the mount frame were not nearly long enough....had to make trip to local hardware store for longer bolts. Other than those things, a very decent product for the price.....would most likely purchase again.

Pros: Made from thick metal.....very sturdy, excellent price.

Cons: "Pivot" feature needs to be omitted, longer wall stud plate needed, longer TV mounting bolts needed.

A Very Versatile Wall-Mount

Wayne from Charlottesville, VA on 10/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really liked the versatility of this wall-mount. I am able to extend my 65" LG OLED towards the seating position to give the illusion of a larger screen. I can also tilt the TV to obtain the perfect viewing angle. You need to take the usual precautions with hanging on the wall. I recommend securing to the studs. I had no issues with hanging this item, and it works perfectly.

Pros: Versatility; heavy duty design

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great mount for my pioneer elite 50" Kuro TV. Crutchfield took the time to look at pics of my room and recommend this mount. One word of caution-if your studs are not luckily spaced, you will have to get drywall screws to mount one side or some other solution. Not as ideal as drilling into the studs but it works. Wish it came with the drywall screws as I did make several trips to the hardware store to get the right one that fit the hole in the mounting bracket. Unit will extend outward, and tilt and move left and right. Thank you Crutchfield!

I had to return this product but not through any defect of it's own. Be sure to make sure what your wall specifications are! I have Metal studs and this unit is not made to be adequately supported by that, so they would have had to redo my wall then used this. Product appears to be great for purpose it was designed for. Just do some homework on your own contributing factors to the equation.

John from Winston Salem, NC on 6/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed multiple Sanus products. All seem to be good quality, instructions good and overall easy to install. I prefer units that allow for easy leveling adjustment as you move tv around. This one requires using a screw and screwdriver to lock the level. Not preferred and had to redo several time to try to get it close to level. Makes "full motion" a moot point as you need to have a screw driver or be ok with not being level as you move it around.

Pros: Clear instructions, quality construction

Cons: Hard to level and/or keep level while using "full motion" capability

Superb overall wall mount

Nathaniel from Bowie, MD on 6/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We're pretty handy around the house, so we thought we'd take on the project of mounting our 55" TV ourselves (first-timers). We were a bit intimidated by the thought of mounting such a heavy piece of equipment to the wall by something that seemed relatively small (though heavy), but this Sanus mount made the project much easier and smoother than we anticipated. The instructions were extremely clear, but more importantly all the installation hardware was clearly labeled. It took us a couple hours but only because we'd never done it before and were taking our time. One of the most important tools that helped us was already having a stud-finder that identified edges and centers of studs. In the end, we have great confidence in the mount and would recommend Sanus to anyone!

Pros: Heavy duty Very clear installation instructions All hardware labeled Smooth operation

Cons: Haven't encountered any

Mark from Newark, DE on 5/28/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It took about 3 hours to mount my Samsung 65" TV + soundbar onto the wall in our TV room - including the time it took to positively locate the center of the wall studs for the mounting bracket. (I worked carefully and deliberately double checked all measurements and steps to avoid having to redo steps). The kit instructions were straightforward. Make sure you read the soundbar mount kit instructions too before assembling the TV bracket, as the soundbar arms mount under the TV bracket! Like the other reviewers, I had to play around with the mounting screws provided, and ended up cutting the plastic spacers in half with a small hacksaw in order to be able to use screws that were long enough to thread all the way into the back of the TV's recessed threaded mounting holes. The assembled unit seems to be sturdy - time will tell as we fool around with it and tweak it in the coming weeks. We'll have to watch to see if it slips from the desired tilt and angle position over time.

Pros: Fit my TV fine (thanks Wolf!). Although I mention fiddling with the screws, washers and spacers to get the bolts to mount securely, the hardware provided in this kit plus the soundbar kit were adequate.

Cons: I had to fiddle with the screws, washers and spacers in order to make a combination that threads all the way into your TV's mounts. I had to cut the plastic spacers provided in half in order to create a snug fit to the TV, and add 2-3 washers per mount. I don't see how this can be avoided with 'universal' kits. The complete unit vibrates about a little bit while adjusting it (all screws and mounts are tight).

Great mount

Very happy with this mount. I have three of them and couldn't be happier with them. When mounting my Samsungs, I did have to purchase longer screws (m8x45mm). Overall great mount

Pros: Versitile Very Secure Relatively easy to mount

Cons: May need to buy either shorter spacers or longer screws. It comes with a good variety of hardware but obviously can't match every brand/series

It is my first wall mount purchase. It was easy to install, sturdy and has great mobility. The cable management system was non-functional. It is composed of zip ties and retainers. The retainers supplied were too small and did not stay secured to the bracket holes.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought as an open box but it was in fine condition and contained all parts and paperwork. It's straightforward to install and allows you to center the TV easily. I picked this model because the outlet is directly behind the TV and the mounting plate has 3 large holes which allowed me to work around it. TV moves easily in and out when I have to get behind it. There is a little give even after everything is tightened so not 5 stars but I would recommend. Back of TV is 4 inches from wall when retracted.

Easy to install, strong and plenty of adjustability. Used the height calculator for mounting height of wall mount. Calculator was off by 6.5 inches...which happens to be the vertical spacing of the wall bracket. Had to move it down and drill 2 more holes. Nothing to do with mount, just the calculator.

Pros: Easy to install and strong

Incorrect Hardware (with Samsumg) - Great Mount

John from Annandale, VA on 11/12/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This looks like a great product and it is sturdy. The construction looks to be high quality. But... Sanus does not supply the right hardware. This Kit Will Not Mount a 65 inch Samsung TV as supplied in the box. The mounting hardware for the back of the TV is (apparently) 2 M8 50mm bolts for the top holes and 2 M8 55 mm blots for the bottom holes. Sanus admitted as much on the phone and sent out a package to help correct, but meanwhile I am unable to mount this TV to the wall for the better part of a week. The bolts supplied max out at 35 mm in length which is far too short to mount the kit to the TV.

Pros: Well made mount

Cons: Unable to mount TV with hardware supplied

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a wall mount system that would allow my tv to come straight out of a recessed area built in a new fireplace. I had purchased and returned a different system to one of the big box stores. I worked with customer service at Crutchfield and they recommended the Sanus . It was much less than the one I had previously purchase and that had me a little worried. When I received my order I was thrilled with the quality (it is actually heavy steel, better than one costing 50% more), how easy it was installed and how well it worked for my situation. Thanks for a great value, savvy customer service and a great product!

I would give the product 5 stars if it had an option to mount to 24"OC. I live in a townhouse and my walls are "exterior walls". We found a workaround, it was just more work for what we planned. Holds a 75" Sony with ease.

Pros: Easy to install if your studs are 16"OC.

Cons: Not easy to install on "exterior" walls.

While searching for a wall mount, I was looking for something cheap but durable. After reading reviews about this mount I gave it a shot. It took me an hour or so to get the courage to hang a 65" tv on the wall but once I started it took maybe 20 minutes. This mount is awesome! Very very sturdy and it is very easy to move around to which ever position you need! I highly recommend this product. And of course Crutchfield coming in with the two day delivery!

Pros: Very strong and easy installation

Cons: None yet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mount came with hardware required. Installed easily and allowed for flexibility to center the TV horizontally on my wall in spite of the configuration of the wall studs. Mount is very solid. Felt like I could put my full weight on it with no problem. TV weight didn't affect it at all. 4 stars instead of 5 because getting the rotation of the screen correct was difficult. There is one small screw that you have to loosen and then tighten when the rotation is where you want it. I would rather have a thumb screw or something that would allow for easier adjustment. Once the rotation was correct though, it seems to hold it's position well.

Pros: Solid, flexibility, easy install.

Cons: Adjusting rotation of the screen once attached is rather difficult.

Very easy to use...fit a 75" Samsung TV perfectly. I used this mount on a brick fireplace and it it was exactly what was needed for the location

Cons:

Only hang it once

Your Guide from North Carolina on 12/24/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Buy the best because you get what you pay for. I've read reviews where people want to buy cheap wall mounts after spending a lot of money on a TV, doesn't make sense. The TV is all wobbly once you mount it & you have to try to figure out the universal mounts to try to make it work for your particular TV. Go to Sanus web site punch in your make & model TV it shows you what you need. The mounts are high quality , everything you need is in the box, no running to the store for better bolts & screws, put it up & forget it. The only way it's coming down is if the wall comes down, directions are easy to follow & your using a few basic tools. The mounts were well thought out & very well made no flimsy materials here, plus their powder coated not just painted. So spend the cash & only hang it once.

Pros: Very well made, very strong, easy to put up, this particular model will hold up to 130 pounds & up to an 80 inch TV.

Cons: None I can see.

Ed B from North Carolina on 12/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and fit my Aquos LC-52LEB10UN perfectly. The only minor problem that I had was when I went to the Crutchfield web site to look for a compatible mount and plugged in my TV, this mount was not listed and only a more expensive mount was listed. I called Crutchfield and was told that it would fit. I also figured that with the Crutchfield return policy, I could not go wrong and I didn't

Pros: Great mount

Cons: None

Excellent but cheaped out on wall plate

jleroy68 from Arizona on 12/13/2015

Needed to span 24' studs, and still move l/r on mounting plate to center TV. This one only has a 19" wide plate. Found an older model with same specs on wall plate but 30" wide. Swapped out back plate and I'm in business. Anybody want to buy a 19" wide wall plate on the cheap.

Pros: Strong. Able to move side to side on mounting plate.

Cons: Mounting plate 16" on center maximum.

Why I like this

Bob D from CA on 11/30/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like this bracket because 1) It's very solidly built. I don't worry that my 55" TV isn't safe. 2) It let's me easily move my TV away from the wall so that I can access the connectors on the back. 3) Clear written directions and the Crutchfield video made installation clear. 4) Adjustable so that I can fit it in the middle of my recessed space.

Pros: Solid

Cons:

Mounting bracket spans multiple wall studs and has spaces for multiple anchors which allows you to center the mount on the wall, unlike the full articulating mounts that mount to the wall with a narrow arm that limits you to attaching the mount where-ever you can find a stud.

I am mounting my TV above the fireplace on studs that are recessed relative to the new stone façade. With the articulating arm, I'll be able to attach the mount directly to the stud rather than building out the stud since the articulating arm can extend far enough out to keep the TV flush with the stone.

10 questions already asked

Yes, it accepts up to 80" and rotayes left and right. [ Earl  May 30, 2018 ]
Has good left and right pivot and slight up down tilt. I have it with a 65" TV. 70" should be fine. You won't be able to swivel it left/right as much. It will take two people to mount the tv. [ Glen  May 30, 2018 ]
Yes. This heavy duty wall mount can tilt up, down, left and right. I use it for my 65" Sony and I'm very happy with the product. I believe the specifications state this mount will hold up to an 80" screen. [ Randall  May 30, 2018 ]
Yes! I just so happened to have mine off the wall and took a quick measurement to confirm. 12" is centered on the outermost slots top and bottom that you can see in the product description, and 4" is centered in the second slot from the center of the unit. [ Justin  Dec 30, 2017 ]
Yes, the mount slides left and right along the base plate allowing you to set the tv where needed. The center of the tv needs to bebetween the two studs but can be anywhere between them. [ Glen  Dec 30, 2017 ]
It might be able to work with one of their TV's. The VESA bolt pattern of the TV needs to match of the patterns this mount supports. We have those listed in the "Details" part of this web page. Also, the Polaroid TV needs to weight less than 130 lbs. If you like, you can contact an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 with your TV's model to check on compatibility and get a personal recommendation on one that will work if this one cannot work. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Dec 18, 2017 ]  Staff
NO [ RICHARD  Nov 27, 2017 ]
The short answer is yes, with limitations. Depending on the size of the TV. Obviously, the TV would need to be narrow enough for the mount to reach the TV, before the sides of the TV contact the walls. [ Robert  Nov 26, 2017 ]
Yes is very easy to install too. [ Jose  Nov 26, 2017 ]
The mount itself cannot be mounted between two walls but you could manipulate the tv on the mount to be angled as I'd it were on the corner. This would largely dependent on the size of the tv. The mount might be visible as well depending on your situation as well. [ Mark  Nov 26, 2017 ]

I recommend that you use 3 inch screws, minimum size 10, with 12 being ideal. You will have to drill pilot holes and lubricate the screw (soap or wax) to be able to drive to the full length, and use a flat washer under the head to distribute the load on the mounting plate. This is assuming that you are driving the screw in to the thin side of the 2x4. Do not shave the 2x4 - you are putting a side load on the structure that will potentially bend the 2x4, over time, a thinned 2x4 will bow out under load. The alternative is to either use a 48" plate or angle iron to strengthen the shaved residual 2x4.The use of a plate is only acceptable if the wall is not load bearing. If the wall is load bearing then you need to install a header and support beams to handle the load above.The framing would be the same as a window.... I hope this helps [ STEPHAN  Jun 05, 2017 ]
My Sanus is model # MLF13 - it came with all mounting hardware. My model is mounted with four 5/16" X 2 3/4" lag bolts. Check Crutchfield's website to see if you can view the current manufactures installation instructions - to see if they list current hardware. You probably would not want to shave off any more than 3/4". [ JOHN  Jun 04, 2017 ]
