Sanus VLT5 tilt TV mount

The mount lets you tilt your TV up for easy cable connections.

A safe design for mounting

Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the mount just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets 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.

Great product. Very easy to install.



Sanus Premium Series VLT5

Mike from Florida on 4/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sturdy mount that was easy to install and to make adjustments. I mounted a 60lb 60" TV, so didn't max out the weight limit, but I pulled on the wall mount piece and have great confidence. The included probe made it easy to find the edges of studs.


Cons: At full price, may not be a good value, but I was able to get it on sale and it was priced very competitively.

Excellent Design

Kenneth R. from Lewisville, TX on 3/28/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I mounted a 55" Sony and it looks great. This is a solid design and has great horizontal flexibility to locate the studs and then adjust your TV to Center. It should easily hold a larger panel, which I'll upgrade to down the road.

Pros: Easy installation and good instruction manual

Cons: May take 2 people for some due to the weight of the TV

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

used for my LG OLED and installs easily. my situation required drilling into studs that were not exactly standard - so it can reach beyond 18" and you can get centered however you wish. one thing to note is that this slim profile doesnt allow much room to connect up cables.

Pros: install, non standard installs

Cons: room for cables

This stand works well with a 65" TV. It doesn't stick out too far and the tilt is pretty nice.

Ed from Pell City, AL on 12/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and easy to mount the TV. The tilt angle is just right for good viewing.

Pros: Priced right and works right.

Cons: none.

Plan a Trip To The Hardware Store!

Mark from Dayton, OH on 10/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As noted in several other reviews, there are not enough screw different lengths supplied for mounting the TV to the bracket. Although the local Hardware Store did have the length that was needed, nobody wants to stop the process of installing a TV to run to the Hardware Store. There are competitive products that are cheaper, and have the needed hardware included...

Pros: Works as expected. It is nice looking, as well as very sturdy construction.

Cons: Not enough, or proper hardware included with the mount.

KB from Chicago, IL on 10/10/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sanus is head and shoulders above the competition! A level/stud finder tool is included, that makes mount placement simple. Additionally, the Sanus website includes "HeightFinder;" a web based app that helps find the correct height placement of the mount, to achieve the desired monitor placement.

Pros: Easy to follow instructions. Great level/stud finder tool included. Web app to aid in measurements.


Quality matters!

Peter from Ft Myers, FL on 9/19/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality mount, easy to install and adjust the tilt. It comes with a nicely printed and detailed instructions. This is my second Sanus product (one full motion and this) and I am extremely satisfied with both. This mount even looks great when the TV is off the wall in case you ever need to temporarily take the TV off, it doesn't look like a huge hunk of metal bolted to the wall like other ones. Thanks to Crutchfield for having the best price available online at the time of purchase.

Fair to Good

Billy from Dallas, TX on 9/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easier than the old ones that you used to have a big allen wrench for. Did not tighten as tight, but it stays in place so no complaints. None of the included screws/spacers combination fit my TV flush (Samsung 65 inch). Luckily I had some screws left over from my old mounting kit (same brand) that fit perfectly. I needed the fat screws with a shorter length. Two fat screw types were included. One was too long with the spacer added, and one was too short with the spacer but too long without the spacer. If you don't have screws laying around, you can cut the spacers. Still would be nice if they included more like with my previous purchase of this brand.

Pros: Easy to install The template was good. First time I had seen one with a template. Good brand for TV mounts

Cons: Not too many choices on screws to fit your TV Tilt not as tight as older models

Great Product

Saff from Morgantown,WV on 4/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. high quality, sturdy product, never disappointed with a Sanus tv mount. I used it to hang a 55" Vizio . I'm very happy with my purchase and would buy it again. It was easy for two people to hang the tv on the mount. The mount also leaves enough room away from the wall to connect your cables.

Pros: easy to install, good directions, high quality product

Cons: none

TV Wall-Mount Bracket: The Sanus Premium Series VLT5 TV wall-mount bracket tilts to give you the best view from the floor or couch. The fingertip tilt allows for easy TV adjustments and tilts the TV back for easy cable access. The VLT5 wall-mount brackets allows your TV to slide from side-to-side for perfect positioning on the wall, and a safety tab provides a safe and easy connection you can hear.

TV Capacity: The VLT5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 80", weighing up to 125 lbs.

VESA Mount Bolt Pattern: The VLT5'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 VLT5's horizontally-mounted wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-700mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLT5 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.

Wall Plate: 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 VLT5 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.

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

Adjustments: Your TV can slide left or right along the wall-mount bracket, allowing you to center the TV 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. In addition, you can tilt your TV from -7° to + 12° in order to give you a better viewing angle of your wall-mounted TV; tension knobs tighten the bracket in place. Tilting the TV also provides easier access to cable connections on back of the televisions.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT5:

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

2 questions already asked

We used this mount on an LG TV. Easy to install and mount the TV Worked great. Reps at Crutchfield answered our question about what mount was correct. They were they only ones we talked to that knew what VESA 400x400 was. Thank you Crutchfield. [ Valerie  Nov 29, 2014 ]
The mount will work and it is a solid sturdy mount [ ALAN H  Nov 27, 2014 ]
Yes, it is. We used it to mount a 55" and 60" Samsung Smart TV. just follow the instructions and check the site to guide you on how to measure the height from the floor for ultimate viewing. [ TINA  Nov 26, 2014 ]
I'm not sure what you mean by "worthy", Andrew, but I am satisfied with my mount, which I used with my 60" Sony. It is well designed for the most part, although the latches where the vertical struts lock into the wall frame can be a bit tricky. It should work with virtually any TV of this size range that has a rectangular arrangement of mounting points provided you take the time to find the studs in your wall to mount the frame. Depending on the requirements of your TV, you also may have to buy mounting hardware (essentially hex head bolts and lock washers) other than those supplied with the unit. They were M8x1.25, as I recall, but the lengths didn't work with my TV. Almost any good hardware store should have a variety of lengths available in this metric size. [ RICK  Nov 25, 2014 ]
This is a great product. I mounted my 65 inch Samsung smart TV with no problem. [ Ryan  Nov 25, 2014 ]
Yes, I is placed a 60 on it, and it will hold up to a 75. [ ALAN H  Nov 25, 2014 ]
This is an awesome TV mount with easy to install instructions and 'dismount' clips. Follow manufacturer instructions as to the dimensions and weight of atV the mount supports. [ Maryellen  Nov 25, 2014 ]
