Full-motion wall mount with dual articulating arms for large flat-panel TVs
Sanus XF228 Install
Sanus XF228 Motion
Our take on the Sanus XF228 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
With the Sanus XF228 you can easily wall-mount and precisely position your flat-panel plasma or LCD TV. Part of Sanus' VisionMount HDpro™ series, this full-motion bracket can support TVs with screen sizes from 42" to 90" and weighing up to 175 lbs. The dual articulated arms extend your TV up to 28" out from the wall. The mount lets you swivel your TV from side to side up to 75°, in either direction, and you can also tilt your TV for optimal viewing.
Sanus' QuickConnect™ system lets you attach the mounting head by simply snapping it into the arm assembly. And you can disengage it with a button push — handy if you need to remove your TV for repairs or replacement.
After installation, the mount's "roll" adjustment lets you fine-tune your TV's position to ensure that the screen is perfectly level. The arm assembly can be also be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is always centered, even if your wall studs are off-center. And the mount's hollow arms let you thread cables through them, keeping them out of sight and free from tangles.

Sanus XF228 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Sanus Systems VisionMount HDPro Series XF228 is a full-motion wall mount for extra-large flat panel TVs and monitors. The mount can tilt, swivel, and extend in every direction so you can attain the perfect viewing angle. This mounting bracket, black in color, features a built-in cable management system to conceal and protect your cables.
Capacity: The XF228 is designed for 42" to 90" flat panel TVs. It has a weight capacity of up to 175 pounds.
Bolt Pattern: The monitor bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing (on the back of the TV) up to 21.625" (550mm). The unit can expand horizontally for extra large TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 5.4" (137mm) to nearly 34" (860mm). The XF228 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the brackets to your TV.
VESA: 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:
- VESA 800 x 400
- VESA 600 x 400
- VESA 400 x 400
- VESA 400 x 300
- VESA 400 x 200
- VESA 300 x 200
- VESA 200 x 200
- VESA 200 x 100
Virtual Axis: Sanus' patented Virtual Axis tilting technology allows effortless viewing angle adjustment without the use of tools by balancing the weight of the TV on itself. You can tilt the TV up or down with just the touch of a finger, and easily reduce glare and reflections caused by lights or windows. Dual arms allow large TVs to easily extend, retract, tilt, and swivel up to 28" from the wall. The arm assembly shifts left and right on the wall plate so the TV is always centered, even if the wall studs are not. Once mounted, the TV's range of motion is as follows:
- Tilt: -15° to +5°
- Swivel: -75° to +75°
- Roll: -5° to +5°
- Extend: up to 28" from wall
ProSet: Once installed, the TV may not appear completely level with its surroundings. ProSet technology lets you make micro-adjustments to height and level after mounting to ensure perfect positioning.
QuickConnect System: The QuickConnect system allows the mounting head to snap onto the arm assembly with one easy movement and unlock with the push of a button. This allows you to attach and detach the TV to the wall mount arm quickly and easily.
Cable Management: The XF228's FollowThru in-arm cable management channel protects and completely conceals all cables without inhibiting movement, even through the elbow.
Optional Speaker Mount: The Optional Sanus VisionMount VMA202 soundbar speaker mount (item # 051VMA202) attaches directly to this wall mount, allowing you to mount your soundbar, digital processor speaker, or center channel with no additional drilling under your TV. The VMA202's extruded aluminum and heavy-gauge steel construction is strong and sturdy, and holds speakers up to 35 lbs.
Wall Mounting: The bracket should be mounted to a wood wall stud, solid concrete, or concrete block using the supplied wall-mount lag screws. Required tools include:
- Stud finder
- Phillips-head screwdriver
- Ratchet with 1/2" sockets (or 1/2" box wrench)
- Drill with 3/16" bit for wood stud installations
- Tape measure
- Wall Plate: W=31.05", H=19.261", D=1.375"

Why did you buy this?
Needed a mount that had the ability to swing into an angle to allow the best view. [ Darrin Sep 06, 2018 ]
Very sturdy, will hold the weight I need and most importantly it will extend 28 inches from the wall. I needed at least 26 inch extension. This was recommended by Chris Barefoot at the local store, an exemplary salesman. I also feel that I can trust a product from Crutchfield for quality and the ease of a return if necessary. [ Daniel Feb 14, 2018 ]
I wanted a professional mount and after watching your video of this particular mount I was sold! Additionally, this mount can hold a 90" TV, so while I will only be using it for now with my NEW 65" Samsung Flagship QLED QN65Q9F, I won't have to replace it when I purchase a larger Samsung next year when the 2018 models arrive. Also you wouldn't want to hang Samsung's Flagship QLED TV onto a cheap mount, would you??? [ Joseph Dec 10, 2017 ]
It was the only wall mounting tv Bracket that I would feel comfortable moving my heavy TV away from the wall safely. [ John Nov 29, 2017 ]
I believe it will provide secure and excellent viewing angles for my 55 inch OLED TV. [ ROBERT B Nov 28, 2017 ]
Bought a new flat screen and needed a larger arm to carry the wieght. [ Cathy Nov 22, 2017 ]
based on Sanus quality reputation and on Sanus recommended mounts for my TV model [ edward Jun 13, 2017 ]
smooth motion, well built [ kenneth Jan 31, 2017 ]
tv will be positioned in a corner. One wall is brick and didn't want to mount to that so this mount appears that it will have enough reach and swivel to extend of the one wall and allow the tv to be at a 45. [ STEVE Jan 29, 2017 ]
Stability for a large TV and able to extend up to 28 inches from the wall. [ Kent Jan 17, 2017 ]
Wanted to future-proof my TV stand with a high quality product that would support huge TV in the future! [ Tom Jan 15, 2017 ]
I've evaluated several wall mount hardware applications and this one is my hands down favorite. Check out the installation video online at Crutchfield; you'll be glad you did! [ Susan Annette Jan 01, 2017 ]
reviews and company [ Michael Dec 27, 2016 ]
appears very sturdy build based off pictures, great reviews [ Michael Dec 26, 2016 ]
What can i say !! After getting this it is THE BEST wall mount for flat screen tvs and curved ones on the market. I can turn the tv 70 degrees so we can watch TV while at the table or move it so i can see it when I'm working on a project and also easy access to rear of tv and cables. Easy to put tv on arm and easy to remove tv if need be. Great product. Recommended by my advisor Hogan [ MIKE Dec 07, 2016 ]
I own one and it is an excellent product [ Guy Nov 25, 2016 ]
To use with Samsung 65" UN65HU8550 [ Anthony Oct 05, 2016 ]
Quality and flexibility are excellent. [ JOEL Aug 11, 2016 ]
Need a full motion mount. This product was highly rated. [ Jimmy Aug 08, 2016 ]
Best reviews for large TVs. Don't trust my TV to hang on anything else. [ August Jul 08, 2016 ]
Strength, size, range of movement. Also it should be able to handle future TV's. [ Kenneth Dec 28, 2015 ]
2 questions already asked
I do not know about this specific model but I have a Samsung UN65HU8550 UHD TV (flat screen) and a Samsung UN55JS9000F UHD TV (curved) and use the Sanus XF228 for each of them. The Sanus XF228 is excellent. I have all my other devices, surge protector, Roku, Router, and MOAC adapter attached to the XF228 behind the TV using zip ties for a clean no wire look. I recently added a curved Samsung sound bar to my curved TV using the optional Sanus sound bar kit. The entire setup works and looks great. [ Michael Feb 23, 2017 ]
Yes i use on it [ ISMAEL RODRIGUE Jan 06, 2017 ]
Should work fine with no issues. [ JIM Jan 06, 2017 ]
You would have to check he Samsung manual to see what mounting options are available and then match that up with the Sanus mounting options. Curved TVs are a little trickier so take care in verifying compatibility before making a purchase. Good luck. [ TYRONE Jan 06, 2017 ]
This wall mount fits flat screen TV's up to 80" (I am assuming from the model # that your TV is a 65"). This is the best wall mount on the market, as I now have two of them. To be sure that it will fit your TV, check the mounting dimensions on the back of your TV (or from the user manual specs sheet) & cross-check these dimensions with those detailed with this wall mount on Crutchfield's web page (under "Details"). [ Leel Mar 15, 2016 ]
Yes it will be a good fit, i have a 65 samsung on it and really like the fact that you can extend it. It is a heavy duty mount very sturdy. [ Saul Mar 15, 2016 ]
I believe it will. [ jay Mar 15, 2016 ]
It should but you should check the weight [ David Mar 15, 2016 ]
