The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 fixed-position mount is a great choice if you simply want to install your TV flat against the wall. This slender mount holds your display just 1-1/2" away from the wall, and it supports a TV with a screen size up to 80" and a weight of up to 125 lbs.

Sanus VLL5 ClickStand TV mount

Sanus' ClickStands hold your mounted TV out at an angle, making cable connections easy.

Safe and simple mounting

The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. You can also make small adjustments after the mount is affixed to the wall, to level it, or even change the height. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know the TV bracket is securely in place.

Here's a cool feature: a handy ClickStand at the bottom of each vertical brace swings out so you can temporarily prop your mounted TV away from the wall, to make cable hookup a breeze — without removing the TV from the mount.

Anthony from Medina, OH on 12/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a well built mount but there are a few things to be aware of. *I'm not able to use the Click Stands with my TV because the top of the TV hits the wall. I can't tip it back far enough to engage the Click Stands. I had to take the TV down, connect all the cables, then hang it. *Do Not trust the website feature to determine mounting height of the bracket. It was off by 7 inches for me. *All the supplied TV screws are long, so if you want the TV close to the wall, buy shorter screws.

Pros: Well built. Good price of mind. Thin

Cons: Only long screws provided. Click Stands don't work with some TVs

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. It did not come with a smaller M6 screw to mount to the LG OLED but after a quick trip to Lowe's this worked out great. Mounts the TV very close to the wall. Inluded mounting cardboard was a huge help.

Pros: Bery shallow depth.

Cons: Due to how the LG OlED works, the mount won't tilt back far enough for kick stands.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Be warned if you are connecting one of the LG OLED TVs! I had the OLED65b7A and got this mount on the recommendation of one of the advisers. It works like a champ but there are a few Got Yas. First is the included hardware. They include both 25 X 6mm screws and larger ones to make it universal. But the screws are too long. Even using the provided small plastic spacers and the 6/8mm washers the screws remain at least a quarter inch proud when screwed all the way in. Had to go buy some extra washers to make the difference. The legs at the bottom of the brackets you attach to the TV are supposed to give you room to attach the cables after the TV is on the wall. Nope. Great in theory no go in practice. There is not enough play between the wall bracket and the TV brackets to allow the legs to function as required. Finally there is the online tool to tell you how high to screw the bracket on the wall. It only works in increments of whole inches and keeps timing out and making you start all over again. After all that measuring you may as well just do a little simple math to come up with your own height setting. Still have not figured out a way to keep the strings that actuate the lower locking mechanism from hanging down.

Pros: Nice solid bracket, secure mount, slim profile, adjustable from left to right after you have the TV mounted.

Cons: Included hardware did not work with my TV, Online tool is useless. Cables must ALL be connected before hanging the TV despite what the instructions say.

Great product, easy to make adjustments. Had to purchase additional hardware for attaching to metal studs.

Pros: Easy to follow instructions Sits flat against he wall and easy to adjust

Cons: Had to purchase a separate kit for installing on metal studs

Easy to install. Minimal dead space behind.

Lawrence from NY NY on 9/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

An easy to install fixed wall mount for large TVs

Pros: The system is easy to install. It's also pretty simple to make minor adjustments and even take the TV on and off if necessary.

Cons: There is relatively little space between the TV and wall once it's installed so depending on the location of input jacks you may need to add right angle connectors so the cables aren't damaged.

Great product and great price

Christopher from Lebanon, TN on 10/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very well made product. I bought this to hang a new Sony 65W930D TV. Unfortunately, this did not fit the TV. The mount points on the TV are in the lower third of the TV and also use spacers on the back of the TV. I could not find a placement where the holes for Sanus TV bracket pieces lined up with the spacers on the TV. So I returned the Sanus TV bracket and went with the Sony version designed for this TV. If it would have worked for me, I would have given it 5 Stars. Crutchfield, as always, were excellent in handling the shipping of the Sony wall mount and the return of the Sanus unit.

Easy do it yourself installation, come with template and stud-finder level tool. Took me about 20 min to install, you do need a bigger level.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. The package contains everything you need including the stud finder which was very helpful. The only downside is the flaps that allow you to angle the TV to install cables is made of plastic and is easy to break (I broke it on my setup). Installs like a picture hanging on the wall. I'm using it to hang my Sony 65" LED TV (~85 lbs) w/o issues.

Pros:

Cons:

TV. Wall mount

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

very solid product. I placed this on a false front and went in easily I did find it difficult to latch on the bottom of my 75" Samsung to the mount , but that was primarily due to having very little room on the sides of a custom cabinet..

Pros: easy to install

Cons: none

Sanus Premium Series VLL5

jonathan from trinity, al on 3/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

everything looked great. my main concern was the width. I was using to mount an 80" TV. it is not wide enough to go across three studs in the wall. I mounted a 15/16" piece of plywood and then mounted the tv mount to that. loved the "kick stands" makes terminating cables a breeze. then the next issue, I was about an inch off center but you only have about a half inch of adjustment room (again, issue with width for an 80". ) so overall, great product for tv's on smaller side of dimensions. was not good for my application, I'm still about 1/2" off center of my wall but can't really tell.

Pros: sturdiness, kickstand, ease of mounting

Cons: width

Features

Fixed-Position: The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 fixed-position wall-mount bracket is perfect for viewing your wall-mounted flat-panel TV at eye level.

TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 80", weighing up to 125 lbs.

VESA Bolt Pattern: The VLL5's TV bracket consists of two vertical brackets with multiple slots that can accommodate a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm on back of your TV. The vertical brackets slide along the VLL5's horizontally-mounted wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-700mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLL5 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the bracket to your TV. Given the mounting bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association:

  • 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 400mm
  • 500mm x 300mm
  • 600mm x 400mm
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.

Construction: The VLL5 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder-coated black finish.

Perfect Positioning: Your TV can slide from side-to-side on the VLL5 wall-mount for perfect positioning on the wall. There is also a level adjustment screw on top of either TV bracket to raise or lower the sides of the TV.

Note: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs or anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts (and wall-anchors). The slots in the wall plate can accommodate a variety of stud spacing, allowing you to easily mount the VLL5 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.

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.

Click Stands: Built-in ClickStands on each TV bracket temporarily hold your mounted TV out from the wall for easier cable connections.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLL5:

  • Tape measure
  • Stud finder/level (included)
  • Drill
  • 7/32" Drill bit (for wood stud)
  • 3/8" Drill bit (for masonry)
  • 1/2" Socket wrench
  • Screw driver
  • Hammer

Why did you buy this?

I needed a mount with short mounting arms. My OLED TV has the mounting holes very close to the bottom of the TV. Most brackets would stick past the TV. This one does not. It has nice features and was a good price. [ Anthony  Dec 09, 2017 ]

2 questions already asked

The mounting brackets are not adjustable. You can set the desired lean of the TV by using the appropriate thickness mounting collars on the top and bottom bolts. This will give you the tilt you need. [ Douglas  Feb 02, 2018 ]
I'm not sure what adjustments you want to make.. I selected the bolt holes that matched my TV. It stays flat against the wall. You can prop the bottom out to make things easier to attach (once hung), but that's about it. It stays up... (hasn't fallen off the wall yet!). Not sure if that answers your questions. [ E  Nov 22, 2016 ]
Yes it worked for my 65 inch Samsung curved tv [ William  Nov 28, 2015 ]
Can't answer with certainty, as I don't have that type of TV. I would caution that the Sanus we ordered, had to be sent back to Sanus, because the arm that controls the vertical hold of the screen would not work. They very quickly sent out another, but I had to pay again for a helper, as the TV was pretty heavy for one person to mount, and the second arm was better, but not up to expectation...still won't hold the vertical tilt at the desired angle [ John  Nov 27, 2015 ]
