The Sanus Classic MLT14 mount features fingertip control so you can easily adjust the tilt without tools. You can tilt the mount up to 5º up, and 10º down. The mount can support TVs with screen sizes from 37”-80" and weighing up to 130 lbs. Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the mount just slides into position. Safety locks that close with audible clicks let you know it's securely in place. The mount can be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is centered, even if your wall studs are off-center.

Easy to use
This is actually our second tv mount. We liked the first one so much we bought the exact same one for our second tv.
Simple and secure
Pros: Easy install Security straps
Cons: None so far
Great universal TV Mount, works well with all different types of televisions.
Sturdy and easy to mount with the hardware provided. I also recommend as others have to connect your Power cord, HDMI cord(s), Optical audio cable, etc. BEFORE mounting on the wall to make life easier as the clearance of this low profile mount from the wall does not allow for 'visual' confirmations of connections even when tilted since most TV's have a panel that is recessed to some extent from the rest of the back panel on the TV.
Pros: Well built, Easy to mount
Anything Sanus is the standard of excellence in A/V equipment!
Pretty easy to install. Would be nice if the included longer bolts to account for situations where one has to drill into cement blocks without a stud in the middle. Other than that the tv hangs and it's super simple to tap on and off as needed. It does sit very very close to the wall so can be a touch challenging to see behind the tv and also hook up cables so be sure your tv has enough design clearance for the hdmi connections.
Pros: Relatively inexpensive.
Cons: Very close to wall can make cable connections challenging for certain TVs
Works very well, simple to install
The mount itself works great, very sturdy. Not 5 stars because I used the the spacer and it made the tv on the top bolts too close to the wall and ends up scratching the wall (only during installation). It won't be a problem without using spacers. And you could get around it if you knew about it first and put something over them during installation.
Pros: Solid mount. Easy to mount and install. Easy to remove as well.
Cons: Use a good leveler when installing. Spacers make the tv too close to wall during installation only.
Easy to install - all necessary hardware included.
Pros: Easy to put up
Great for the price. Like that it can be tilted down without a big heavy arm.
Pros: Great for the price. I have it's big brother on a larger TV, Great cost alternative. Great that it can be tilted down without a big heavy arm. My wife can do her yoga while looking up at the screen without getting ceiling lights reflecting in the TV.
Cons: You'd better be close on your leveling. It cannot be leveled after installing like it's bigger, more expensive brother. Can't be tilted out like more expensive model. So get your cabling connected prior to hanging the monitor.
Purchased this wall mount for a 55" Samsung. Appears to be very well built for the price and the angle adjustment was exactly what I was looking for.
Pros: Heavy duty, well packaged, will easily support a 55" LED TV when anchored to wall studs.
Cons: None at this point in time.
This product was so easy to install! It came with a variety of hardware sizes to ensure that it fits with your TV model. I would highly recommend that you find the wall studs to mount and not rely on sheetrock anchors. The mount is very sturdy and well constructed. The only little issue are the release cords that dangle down from behind the TV. I found it a little challenging to get them hidden behind the TV. But otherwise, a great product! Make sure you have all your connections made before you mount the TV !
Pros: Comes with a variety of hardware Easy to install
This is a very solid, well made product. I think I had chosen the "open box" option to save a couple bucks and it may as well have been brand new. Install was quick and easy. I recommend using a small nail to find exactly where the edges of your studs are so you know you're drilling right into the center of them. My drywall is slightly thicker than the maximum thickness allowed per the instructions (if you're OCD like I am, stupid things like that matter), but since my tv weighs almost half what the mount is rated for, I didn't really have any reservations continuing with the install. Fast forward to today, the tv has been up for over a week and is safe and secure; it's not going anywhere. My only other concern was choosing which length bolts to use fixing the mount to the back of the tv; I wanted to be sure there were enough threads engaged to hold the tv securely. That information should be found in your tv's manual (it was 8-12mm for mine, a 75" Sony). Make sure to hook up any cables going to the back of your tv before you put the up, access to the back is very limited once it's on the wall. All said and done, I think this is a great tv mount with a very reasonable price tag and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
Pros: Confidence inspiring build quality. Easy to install. Convenient online tool tells you how high to install the mount based on how high off the floor you want your tv.
Cons: Poor access to the back of the tv once it is mounted, so make sure to hook everything up first!
Worked as we needed.
Pros: Works well.
Used for 75" TV. Works just like a mount should work!
This wall mount works great. It works fine for the new LED TVs that weigh less than 130 pounds. I am using it for my new Samsung 75Q7F 75" 4K Smart LED TV that weighs about 83 pounds. This wall mount replaced a Sanus Wall Mount VMPL3 which was designed for TVs weighing up to 280 pounds and was holding up my eleven year old Panasonic 65 inch plasma TV that weighed about 170 pounds. It was easy to mount and was about one third the price of my Sanus VMPL3 mount.
Pros: inexpensive, simple but strong
Product did not have the correct length of bolts for the Samsung TV that I purchased. I had to find longer bolts from another kit that I had. The main reason I use Crutchfield is for your expertise. After the purchase, I read other complaints about this product and not working with Samsung TV's. Overall, the product works fine.
Nice and heavy duty, and plays well with my Vizio M55. Nice and and lean fit, so the TV is as flush with the wall as possible.
Pros: Solid, heavy, thin profile
Exactly what I was looking for. Arrived quickly as well!
Installing this was very easy to do, with help from my wife. Probably took less than 1 hour total time. Mounted a 50" Panasonic Plasma which weighed over 80 lbs. The most difficult part was positioning the TV on the mount after it was installed on the wall. The install portion to put the brackets on the TV and the bracket on the wall was a piece of cake.
Pros: Fits my TV perfectly
Other than having to get longer Screws to mount Brackets on TV it is a great sturdy Mount! Very easy to install!
Pros: Great Sturdy Mount! Easy to install.
Cons: I had to get longer Screws to install brackets on the back of my 65" Samsung KS8000 because of spacers provided with TV.
Great sturdy wall mount. I was able to attach to studs using bolts and cutouts. Tilt is good too. Set tv to desired angle and hasn't moved.
Great product! Sturdy solid
Had to use the spacers but the screws provided were not long enough. Cut the spacers to make it work. Screws needed to be about 5mm longer. Otherwise the product was good
easy to install
I have bought at least a dozen wall mounts over the years for myself and this one was by far the best. It's one piece length offers superior stability and access to multiple wall studs. The pull down cords made it a breeze by not needing that dreaded 15 inch long screwdriver to blindly find the safety screws. Just an easy grab of the strap and your all set and protected. I have worked in the AV industry for 49 years doing convention show AV and I highly reccomend this Sanus MLT14 !!
Pros: One piece Length and safety strap pull downs.
1st time I've wall mounted a TV. Sooo glad I went with the Crutchfield expert's advice. Took longer to get my tools out than the actual mounting process! 4 bolts (provided) to attach bracket to TV & 4 lag bolts (again provided) to attach mounting plate to wall & then simply lift, hook & click...DONE!
Pros: ease of use
I got this hanger for my 65" LG plasma tv that weighs 120 lbs. It works great, It's solid as heck if you bolt it to a stud which I did. I like that it has two handles that lock the tv to the wall. The tilt on it works so so because you are so close to the wall.
Excellent product. Very sturdy.
Good quality and easy to install for do it yourselfers
Great product and easy to mount. TV hanging made simple
This Is my second Sanus TV wall mount. What does that tell you? Sanus makes a good quality product that I can trust. They are fairly cheap compared to others, which can be really cheap. Cheap in quality. I want to trust my TV will stay on the wall.
Pros: Easy to mount, quality you can trust.
Mount was easy to install, solid construction, and very functional.
This is a great mount. Everything you need in a tv mount
Simple to install, assure it is level as there are no fine tune adjustments once installed.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: No adjustment if slightly out of level.
Great TV mount. Easy to install, sturdy and functional, easy instructions.
Pros: Just as advertised
Since my new TV weighed 55 pounds instead of the 130 max, rather than the 3/8" OD concrete anchors supplied, I used six 3/16" concrete screws that look almost like long sheet metal screws, which means smaller holes in the paneling already covering the concrete wall. I wish they had suggested this in their literature.
Pros: Positions the TV a close 1.9" from the wall. Tilts back just enough to get access to cable connections.
Cons: Otherwise good installation instructions.
Easy installation. Another great recommendation from Crutchfield. Call to get advice from the Crutchfield team. They never disappoint.
Pros: Simple installation, lightweight, yet sturdy.
Cons: It's slightly annoying that the bracket straps hang down in view below the TV after mounting. Need to tuck them up into bracket out of sight. Adjustable knobs are hard to reach. Enlist the help of your 10 year old daughter to squeeze her hands in behind TV to tighten once you have found the right angle.
Needed to hang my new Samsung 65inch TV. This mount got my attention due to: Ability to hold my TV; Value; Ability to change the viewing angle; Sanus great reputation; other customer reviews; Low profile to the wall.
Pros: This is a great mount. Can handle most TV's with a selection of bolts, anchors and washers. Fit my Samsung perfectly. Low profile to the wall...perhaps 1 and a half inches. Ability to easily adjust angle and position of the TV. Mounting the TV and dismounting is easy. (with an extra pair of hands). Clear and simple installation instructions as well. Hardware included for stud(drywall) mount and concrete or brick wall mount.
Cons: Not really a con but beware have to remove the TV from the mount to make adjustment on the tension of the viewing angle. This is hard to determine until the TV is mounted for the first time....so ends up being a two step process.
It does the job for a 75" TV. Sturdy enough and great directions with plenty of bolts for different TV's
Pros: Easy to mount
Cons: Hard to hold up the TV and make all the connections. At least three people are required. I would of went with a full motion mount if I knew for a fact my wall would support it and I wasn't nervous swinging a 70 lbs. tv out on a single arm.....you need to decide.
easy to mount if you find the studs. Positive connection , adjustment for angle works well. Mounted Samsung 65 JS 8500
Pros: works well satisfied with installation
TV Capacity: The Sanus Classic Series MLT14 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 37" to 80", weighing up to 130 lbs.
VESA Bolt Pattern: The Sanus MLT14 wall-mount bracket accommodates a horizontal hole spacing on back of the TV of 50mm-705mm and a vertical hole spacing of 50mm-450mm. The MLT14 comes with M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the bracket to your TV. It will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association:
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.
Low-Profile: Its low-profile design positions the TV just 1.0625" from the wall for a clean appearance.
Tilting Design: The Sanus Classic Series MLT14 tilting mount gives you the best view of your wall-mounted television from the floor or couch. Innovative technology provides up to 15º (+5°/-10°) of tilt with the touch of a finger, making it easy to reduce glare and improve viewing angles without tools. Tilting the TV also provides easier access to cable connections on back of the television.
Perfect Positioning: Your TV can slide from side-to-side on the MLT14 wall-mount for perfect positioning on the wall. The TV brackets easily shift left and right on the wall plate to allow perfect TV placement, even with off-center wall studs.
Safety Tabs: Once the wall bracket is anchored to the wall studs and the two TV brackets are attached to the back of your television, the two TV brackets hook into the wall bracket. Integrated safety tabs on the TV brackets provide a safe and easy connection to the wall bracket you can hear. There is a strap on each TV bracket which allows you to disengage the safety tabs and remove your television from the wall bracket.
Construction: The MLT14 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder-coated black finish. This solid construction provides strength and increased safety.
Wall-Plate: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs spaced 16" or 24" OC. The wall-plate can also be anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall. Lag bolts, washers, and wall-anchors are supplied.

It fit the TV [ C Dec 19, 2017 ]
I actually chose this mount so that I could move a 10 year old Panasonic Plasma into another room. The "old" flat screen mount will be used with the "new" TV. The old mount has a security bar, which unless you know it's there, makes it impossible to remove the TV from the wall. Ops! I've told you too much... [ Harry Dec 05, 2017 ]
My Crutchfield advisor, Ziggy, chose it for me as the best way to mount my new TV on the wall. [ Judith Nov 29, 2017 ]
I chose this product for a couple reasons; one, I needed something that would allow for a close to the wall fit and tilt a little and this fit those requirements, and two, I have another Sanus wall-mount for a TV and it has worked trouble-free for several years. [ Wayne Aug 07, 2017 ]

This mount seems like the right choice to hang my 65 inch new Samsung JS8500 4KUHDTV. I think I will use the tilting option but also like the low profile. The TV has recessed connections so can mount close to the wall. The TV weighs 70 pounds so well within the limits of the mount. [ Kevyn Jan 11, 2016 ]
I have purchased Sanus tv mounts before from Crutchfield and was pleased with the quality and service . This is purchased for a 50" 4k Samsung and this Sanus mount is low profile , so will be close to wall without sticking out . The cost and quality is also a factor in purchasing Sanus .
