The dimensions are spot on for our needs. The style is very nice and blends well with our existing den. I hope it's not completely difficult to assemble.

I have had very good luck with Sanus. This will be my second purchase of Sanus furniture. It looks great and the prices are wonderful. My first purchase Lonnie helped me what a professional. With the service I have received I'll never go back to the big blue box store. Already putting together my next purchases to Finnish my new man cave.

1 question already asked

The instructions show two options: 1) attached to the furniture and 2) attached to the top of the back of the furniture and then to the wall. [ David  Feb 12, 2015 ]
The straps are adjustable, so yes, you can attach to the wall. Make sure you find a stud in the wall. Screw through the strap into a stud (not just sheetrock) for maximum effectiveness and safety. [ MICHAEL P  Feb 10, 2015 ]
Attach to wall behind the TV to either a stud or using a molly bolt. TV doesn't weigh that much depending on it's size. If TV is in a cabinet, it could be attached to the rear wall of cabinet. Mine is mounted in a built-in cabinet. [ De Alva  Feb 10, 2015 ]
Thank you so much, Douglas!!! I am amazed so many nice people took time to answer my question :) I really appreciate it, and i gotta get this! [ Vicki  Feb 10, 2015 ]
Your options are either to a stud in the wall behind or to furniture stand that the TV sits on. I have mine attached to the wood entertainment center that the TV sits on. It works great as long as your stand has enough wood to grip the screw tightly and securely you should be fine. [ audiogeek  Feb 10, 2015 ]
You can attach it to both the wall behind the TV and the furniture at the same time. [ JUN SAN  Feb 09, 2015 ]
yes It attaches the tv to the back of the cabinet and then to the wall behind. in order to be secure you must attach it to the wall. good luck [ NORMA  Feb 09, 2015 ]
The kit includes a wall attachment extension too but I think it needs to connect to the furniture first to be properly held. [ Sean  Feb 09, 2015 ]
