Our take on the Sanus VMF408 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Sanus' ultra-thin VisionMount® VMF408 holds your flat-panel LCD or plasma TV just 1-1/8" from the wall when fully retracted. Sanus' glide system makes it easy to position your TV exactly where you want it. Just pull on the mount and it smoothly extends outwards up to 8", and you can also tilt your mounted TV downward, swivel it from side to side, and make minor adjustments even with the arm extended.
The mount's decorative cover conceals the assembly and hardware, giving it a finished appearance that compliments your display. Cable guides keep wires organized and out of sight without interfering with motion of the extending arm. This durable heavy-gauge steel mount supports a TV with a screen size up to 50" and weighing up to 60 lbs. The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center.

Why did you buy this?
Price was almost the lowest but Crutchfield reputation is great. This was a close call as to whether it will fit but the advisor did research and said yes. But, just in case, I wanted to be able to send back to you if an issue. [ JOHN Jan 04, 2017 ]
This wall mount looked more aesthetically pleasing than the others. I also needed it to fit across 2 studs [ Angel Dec 23, 2016 ]
