Our take on the Sanus VLF510

The thin Sanus VLF510 mount can hold your TV a scant 1-3/8" from the wall, or extend it outward 10-3/8". You can swivel the TV left or right up to 30° and tilt it downward as far as 10° 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 VLF510 can support a TV with a screen size of up to 80", and a weight of up to 125 lbs.

Solid but struggles extending out from wall

Adam from Carrollton, TX on 1/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent support. Definitely solid. Has good cable management on back. However, a good, full-motion TV support should move easily away from and back to the wall. This one does not. The two butterfly "wings" on the back, that sit in channels of the wall support, bind and do not move as easily as other mounts. Kind of a struggle actually. TV is a 50lbs, 65" Samsung. Mount is rated to 125lbs. Also, the wire management plastic "pops: when you push the TV back to the wall. Obviously it is getting caught on itself. For the price I expected smoother movement that this.

Pros: Installation was simple. Sanus has a good app that helps you get the holes at the right height. Support feels very solid. Wire management is good.

Cons: Does not extend easily from wall. Butterfly design, where supports slide in channel bind with a 50lb TV attached, despite rating of 125lbs. Wire management plastic "pops" when extending and pushing back to the wall.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very well built mount and lots of adjustments are available to allow for the perfect installation. Only slight negative is the weight. Definitely a two person job. I did not use the cable management feature so I cannot comment on how it works.

GREAT slim design

Michael from Ft Myers, FL on 11/14/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sanus full motion wall mount is well constructed and was easy to mount to the wall using the enclosed manufacturer's template and the Crutchfield installation links. The wall mount's slim design is an excellent choice for those who want the flexibility of full motion with the low profile-slim design of a fixed mount. I am extremely pleased with this Sanus wall mount.

Pros: Solid construction, easy installation, slim design


Sanus VLF510 TV wall mount

Biomrl from Clifton, VA on 9/23/2016

It does the job. Adjustable left and right, comes out from the wall far enough to plug cables in to back of TV, holds my 65" 106lbs plasma TV, and can tilt. Had to pay someone to install it. Both the mount and TV are too heavy for one person to manage. The cable management device is only marginally useful. Many of the cables I have are too thick for it. Would I buy it again. Yes.

Pros: Adjustability and holds heavy TV

Cons: Heavy and cable management device is inadequate

Great mount

Heavy-Duty Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.

Perfect Positioning: The TV brackets and arm assembly let your television slide from side-to-side on the wall-mount plate for perfect positioning of the TV on your wall. There are also two level adjustment screws on the TV bracket to raise or lower (+/-2°) the sides of the TV.

Note: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs or anchored to a block or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts (and wall-anchors). The slots in the wall plate can accommodate wall studs 16" and 24" on center.

2 questions already asked

This was a gift and I didn't Hang it. There are brackets that screw onto the back of the tv, and then maybe it would be then hung onto the main piece which would be attached to the wall. Sorry I could not help more. [ Robert  Sep 24, 2016 ]
yes [ EUGENE  Sep 24, 2016 ]
Yes it does.Tilt TV up from bottom slightly ,and then lift TV to un hook. [ ALAN  Sep 24, 2016 ]
Yes [ ROBERT  Sep 24, 2016 ]
I would think so, I have a large Sony hanging on it and it is working out fine. [ Robert  Aug 05, 2016 ]
I don't know. It's still in the box and will be installed tomorrow. I bought it because a Crutchfield sales tech said it would work with the 49 inch Sony we are installing. [ Philip  Aug 05, 2016 ]
