Super-slim full-motion wall mount for flat-panel TVs 37"-65"

Our take on the Sanus VLF311-B1 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VMFL311-B1 holds your large flat-panel LCD or plasma TV just 1-1/4" from the wall when fully retracted. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outwards up to 11".
The mount's decorative cover conceals the assembly and hardware, giving it a finished appearance that compliments your display. Cable guides keep wires organized and out of sight without interfering with motion of the extending arm.
This durable heavy-gauge steel mount supports a TV with a screen size up to 65" and weighing up to 120 lbs. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center.

Where do I drill the holes?

Very pleased with this purchase. Was a breeze to set up and the TV looks slim great on the wall.

Sanus VLF311-B1 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLF311 is designed to wall mount most large flat panel TVs from 37" to 65" and up to a 120 pounds. This full motion mount allows you to easily aim the TV for viewing virtually anywhere in the room. It has an integrated cable management system for a clean look. The mount is ultra slim, placing the TV only 1-1/4" from the wall.
Construction: The wall-mount bracket is made from solid heavy-gauge steel, with a durable powder coated black finish. It comes with a decorative cover to hide assembly and mounting hardware for a finished appearance.
Bolt Pattern and VESA: The vertical brackets that attach to the TV can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) between 25mm and 420mm. The horizontal brackets can be adjusted to accommodate a horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV from 146mm to 730mm. The VLF311 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts to mount the brackets to your TV. For TVs with curved rear panels, an assortment of spacers is included for proper mounting. Given the range of motion, the mount will accommodate the following VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting hole patterns:
- 200mm x 100mm, 200mm x 200mm
- 300mm x 200mm, 300mm x 300mm
- 400mm x 200mm, 400mm x 300mm, 400mm x 400mm
- 500mm x 400mm
- 600mm x 400mm
Full Motion: Once the TV is mounted, the fingertip tilting technology provides smooth tilting with the touch of a finger. The VLF311 can extend out to 11.17", tilt from 0° to -10°, and swivel up to +/- 33°. You can also laterally shift the TV along the wall plate for ideal placement. When you have positioned the TV, you can lock the mount into place to prevent further movement.
Cable Management: The VLF311 has a cable management system to keep loose cables organized for a clean appearance without compromising TV movement.
Wall Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to a wood wall stud (16" to 24" on center) or a solid concrete or concrete block wall. It is not designed for use in metal stud walls. The wall must be capable of supporting five times the weight of the TV and mount combined. Tools required for mounting include: a Phillips-head screwdriver, 1/2" socket wrench, electric drill, 7/32" drill bit (for wood studs), and 3/8" masonry bit (for concrete or block). To properly position the mount, you'll likely need a pencil, awl, level, tape measure, hammer, and stud finder as well.
- Wall Plate: Width = 31.35", Height = 13.5" (attached vertical face plate height is 20.875"), Depth = 1.24"
