Our take on the Sanus VLT14 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The ultra-thin Sanus VLT14 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV just 13/16" from the wall. It's the ideal wall-mount for many of the latest ultra-thin TVs. This durable heavy-gauge design is strong enough to keep your TV firmly in place, and can support a TV with a screen size up to 65" and weighing up to 130 lbs. Plus the adjustable Virtual Axis lets you tilt your TV up to 10° forward for better viewing.
The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. And the handy ClickStand at the bottom of each vertical brace swings out to prop your mounted TV away from the wall, to make cable hookup a breeze — without removing the TV from the mount.

Sanus VLT14 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Sanus VisionMount VLT14 Super Slim tilting-mount places 37"-65" TVs just 0.875" from the wall, yet still allows up to 10° of tilting capability. The VLT14 also offers additional exclusive features that make it incredibly easy to install and use. The VLT14 features the revolutionary Adjustable Virtual Axis technology, which allows tilt tension to be adjusted to compensate for a variety of TV depths. ClickStand technology holds the TV away from the wall for easy cable access without having to remove the TV from the mount.
Compatibility: The VLT14universal wall-mount bracket is designed to fit flat-panel plasma and LCD monitors from 37" to 65". The TV can have a maximum weight of 130 pounds.
Note: Wall plate mounting holes are designed to accommodate 16" or 24" on-center studs.
Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Super Slim Design: This super slim tilting mount sits just .875" from wall to complement the sleek look of ultra-thin flat-panel TVs.
Mounting: The wall plate must be mounted to wall studs or anchored to a brick, block, or concrete wall using the supplied lag bolts. The slots in the wall plate can accommodate a variety of stud spacing, allowing you to easily mount the TV to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center. Once the wall plate is anchored to the wall studs and the monitor brackets (with the TV attached) are hooked onto the wall plate, the TV can slide left or right, allowing you to center the TV on the wall. After the TV is secured, it will be held approximately 0.875" from the wall.
Note: Each monitor bracket has multiple bolt holes and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) up to 20.0625" (410mm). Since the monitor brackets can slide on the wall plate, the horizontal hole spacing on the back of the TV can range from 5.75" (147mm) to 31.675" (804mm).
Steel Stud Mounting: If you wish to mount this Sanus wall mount in a building with steel stud walls, you will need the Sanus SSMK1 Steel Stud Mounting Kit (051SSMK1). Steel stud walls are typically found in commercial applications, such as office buildings, warehouses, and condominiums.
Mounting Hardware: The VLT14 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 bolts to mount the monitor brackets to your TV. Given the mounting bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the VESA 200 x 100, 200 x 200, 300 x 200, 400 x 200, 500 x 200, 300 x 300, 400 x 300, 400 x 400, 500 x 400, 600 x 400, & 800 x 400 mounting 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.
Virtual Axis Technology: Once the TV is secured to the wall, you can adjust the TV's angle. With the Virtual Axis fingertip tilt system, the TV can tilt 10° down, and you can lock the position by simply tightening a knob on each monitor bracket.
ClickStand: The VLT14's ClickStand feature allows you to tilt the bottom of the TV outward and hold it there, giving you easy access to the back panel for connecting cables. Once all the cables have been plugged in, you can release the ClickStand and securely lock the TV into position on the wall plate.
Quick Release Tabs: Convenient quick-release tabs stay hidden behind your mounted TV, and easily pull down to unlock it from wall plate for cable access.
Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT14:
- Stud finder
- Phillips-head screwdriver
- Electric drill
- Drill bits: 7/32" (wood studs) and 3/8" (masonry)
- Wrench or ratchet and socket: 1/2"
Wall Plate: W = 32.5", H = 3.75", D = 0.4375"
