Overview

Our take on the Sanus VLT6

The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium wall mount offers something extraordinary — it lets you take advantage of its full tilt range, even when mounting larger TVs up to 90" in screen size. With traditional tilt mounts, larger TVs can hit the wall, limiting the mount's range of motion. But the VLT6 features built-in extenders that provide an additional 5-3/4" clearance behind your set.

Go full-tilt, even with a big TV

The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium wall mount offers something extraordinary — it lets you take advantage of its full tilt range, even when mounting larger TVs up to 90" in screen size. With traditional tilt mounts, larger TVs can hit the wall, limiting the mount's range of motion. But the VLT6 features built-in extenders that provide an additional 5-3/4" clearance behind your set.

Extra room for making connections

Not only are the extenders handy for positioning your TV, but they help with installation. Rather than having to remove your mounted TV to connect new gear, just tilt it up. There's plenty of room to reach back behind your set and connect those cables.

A safe design for mounting

Once you've secured the wall plate to the wall and attached the brackets to your TV, the whole TV assembly just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click to let you know it's securely in place. The TV assembly can be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate. So even if your wall studs are off-center, your TV doesn't have to be. And you can level your set after installation.

Strong bracket

Anonymous from Duluth, GA on 5/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very strong, holds my 85" Samsung JU7100 TV (126 lbs) without any noticeable strain or flex in the bracket. I like that I can level out the TV using the hex screws built into the brackets. I also like that I can tilt the TV and it will stay in whatever extended or tilted position I leave it without having to tighten any screws (does not droop down). I only wish it would extend out 1 more inch, would make working behind the TV much easier.

Excellent design

Mac from Quincy, IL on 4/22/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent design. The range of tilt and angle from side to side as well as lateral movement to center on the wall make this a clear choice. Quality is excellent and very easy installation.

Pros: Versatile Quality

Cons: None.

Easy to mount, feels very solid!

Sean from Dorchester, MA on 4/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This mount was quite easy to attach to the TV and mount on the wall and seems incredibly solid. We did this ourselves without a professional. The movement works well, holds placement and doesn't require too much space between the wall and the TV. Very satisfied thus far!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well designed product complete with all parts to mount ANY brand TV. I installed a 60" LG in less than 1 hour. This product is very solid and will hold 150 pounds and has tilt and other adjustable features. So happy we bought from Crutchfield. They have very fast delivery.

Pros: Excellent instructions, step by step where anyone can install it.

Cons: None!

I installed my 65" Samsung Tv. Great product tucks close to wall but pulls out just far enough to make it easy to plug cables in. Also the tilt feature is perfect for glare. I recommend this mount.

Only issue is the hooks, on the two brackets that fasten to the back of the TV, scratch/gouge the wall as you slide it along the rails anchored to the wall.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very sturdy, simple to install wall mount I used to hang a 55" Samsung TV. The Sanus website provides an accurate Heightfinder tool that calculates mounting dimensions based on the TV and mount being used. Thorough instructions and a variety of hardware are included. Be sure to use any mounting bushing or spacers that come with your TV in conjunction with the mount to ensure proper spacing between your TV and the mount itself. The tilting, sliding and extending ranges of the mount are as advertised, making adjustment of the TV and plugging/unplugging of wires and cables simple even after installation. I highly recommend this product and would not hesitate to purchase it again for other installations.

Pros: Sturdily built, easy to adjust, clear directions

Cons: None

Sanus VLT6-B1 Advanced Tilt TV Wall Mount for TVs 37" to 90"

Ronald from Solon, OH on 6/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quite happy with the final result. Good mount for me because the studs in my wall are 24" apart, and this mount supported that. Other mounts (like the manufacturer recommended one for my TV from LG) only work with 16" spacing. I liked that the TV can be placed anywhere along the bracket, so I can center where I need to. Extending and tilting is easy and smooth. Be careful using the Sanus height-finder online to determine where your TV will end up. I don't see any way to tell the height-finder which of the various mounting holes you will use to place the brackets on the back of the TV. I think it presumes that the brackets will be centered vertically, but in my case that would have made the bracket visible underneath the TV. My TV ended up about 2" higher than I expected. No biggie, it still looks good, but if you need a precise height placement, be careful. Finally, the biggest complaint I have is that the included M6 screws come in only 12mm and 35mm lengths. I had to run to the hardware store for 20 mm screws, since the 12mm ones only ended up with just over 3 threads of engagement - (didn't feel like enough to me and I wasn't willing to bet my TV on it) - and the 35mm screws were too long. If I had the right screws, I would give this mount a 5 star rating.

Cons:

Strong mount. Easy install.

Matt from Middletown, NY on 4/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice TV mount. Easy to install using the online tool. Also very easy to adjust once it's on the wall: will slide horizontally several inches left or right. Use included allen wrench to adjust vertically (mostly for making it level, not for major adjustments).

Pros: Easy install, holds large TVs, easy to plug in cords once mounted

Cons: Be sure to center brackets on the back of the TV

Features

TV Capacity: The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium Wall Mount is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 46" to 90", weighing up to 150 lbs.

VESA Mount Bolt Pattern: The VLT6's TV bracket consists of two vertical brackets with multiple slots that can accommodate a vertical hole spacing of 100mm-415mm on back of your TV. The vertical brackets slide along the VLT6's horizontal wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-690mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLT6 comes with M6 & 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 100mm
  • 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 300mm
  • 400mm x 400mm
  • 500mm x 300mm
  • 500mm x 400mm
  • 600mm 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.

Tilt Mechanism: The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium Wall Mount lets you tilt your television up 7° or down 12°. It positions your TV 2.75" from the wall and offers 5.75" of extension.

5.75" of Extension: The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium TV Wall Mount features a revolutionary design, providing 5.75" of extension on a tilting mount. The extension allows even the largest of TVs to achieve the maximum listed tilt range. Large TVs installed on traditional tilting mounts often hit the wall, limiting the maximum tilt that can be achieved. The VLT6 solves this issue by extending from the wall, offering TVs a larger tilt range. More tilt translates to better glare reduction. This makes the VLT6 the go-to tilting mount for all above-eye-level mounting locations, like over the fireplace. Additionally, because the mount can extend the TV 5.75" from the wall, cables and wires can be accessed quickly and easily while the TV is still mounted. This makes the initial hook-up and future device switches a quicker and easier process.

Open Wall Plate: An open wall plate design allows the VLT6 to be mounted directly over electrical outlets for a super clean installation. The VLT6's 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 VLT6 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.

Perfect Positioning: Centering the TV, even with off-center studs, is no longer an issue due to the side-to-side shift. Post-installation height and level adjustments make fine-tuning quick and easy for a perfectly level TV.

Safety Tabs: Once the wall plate 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. These safety tabs also allow you to easily remove the TV and TV brackets from the wall plate.

Construction: The Sanus VLT6 Advanced Tilt Premium TV Wall Mount is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.

Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT6:

  • Tape measure
  • Stud finder
  • Level
  • Drill
  • Drill bits (7/32" for wood, 3/8" for concrete, or 1/2" for steel)
  • Socket wrenches (7/16" & 1/2")
  • Phillips-Head Screw driver
  • Awl
  • Pencil

Optional Streaming Device Panel: Compatibility with the SASP1 streaming device panel (sold separately) means that even streaming devices can be hidden behind the TV for the ultimate installation

Optional Padlock: The ability to padlock the TV to the mount for additional safety or security means this can be used in private or public settings without worry. Padlock sold separately.
