Universal projector mount (Black)
Our take on the Sanus VMPR1 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Ceiling-mounting your projector keeps it safe, secure, and out of the way. Sanus's VMPR1 provides a sturdy, convenient way to ceiling-mount most projectors up to 50 pounds.
The included ceiling and projector mount brackets boast high-quality steel construction. Hardware is supplied for securing most projectors to the VMPR1 (ceiling mounting hardware not included). Pitch, roll and yaw adjustment lets you precisely tweak the angle of the projector. (To display an image with straight edges on all sides, the projector's lens should be parallel to the screen.)
- weight limit: 50 lbs.

Sanus VMPR1 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Projector Compatibility: The Sanus VMPR1b projector ceiling mount system offers a versatile mount design that accommodates more than 95% of all DLP and LCD projectors on the market. The Sanus VMPR1b can accommodate a variety of projector mounting patterns and screw sizes. The mounting arms can cover an area approximately 12" in diameter. If the two extension arms are added, an area up to 18.5" in diameter can be covered. If the projector uses less than four mounting screws, the mounting arms can be removed. The maximum weight to be installed on the mount is 50 lbs.
Heavy Gauge Steel Construction: The Sanus VMPR1b projector ceiling mount utilizes heavy-duty gauge steel construction for a secure and long-lasting mount.
Decorative Covers: The VMPR1b projector ceiling mount comes with decorative plastic covers and trim-rings (black or white) to conceal exposed hardware and unsightly cables.
Quick-Release Mechanism: The Sanus VMPR1b employs a quick-release mechanism that allows dismounting for servicing of filters and bulbs without realigning and refocusing.
Separate Roll, Tilt, and Swivel Controls: Independent roll (+/-6°), tilt (+/-30°), and swivel (+/-15°) adjustment settings make set up and alignment easy.
Extension Pole w/ Angled Adapter: The Sanus VMPR1b includes a 7" extension pole and adapter bracket for cathedral or vaulted ceilings. The adapter bracket allows you angle the projector mount +/-45° to accommodate the slope of the ceiling. The extension pole sits your projector approximately 12.75" away from the ceiling (distance will vary if your ceiling is angled). Without the extension pole, the ceiling mount bracket only sits your projector 4.75" away from the ceiling.

- M2.5 screws: 10mm long + M2.5 flat washers

I'm not familiar with that sony projector. I used it on an epson 5030ub projector and it worked. [ JOE Jun 29, 2014 ]
I don't have a Sony projector so I can't answer for certain. The mount does come with extensions for the mount brackets and can fit a pretty big projector. I have an Epson which is quite large and it worked well for it. Could have fit a much smaller projector as well. [ Ronald Jun 29, 2014 ]
No, you'll need to get a ceiling mount with an extension that suits your height of installation. [ Yancy May 27, 2016 ]
The bottom of the mount where it meets the top of the projector is 4 inches from the ceiling. I wouldnt want the projector any lower and i am glad its not closer to the ceiling or i wouldn't get the wires through the mounting holes to connect to the projector. Hope that helps [ JASON Jan 15, 2015 ]
It does depend on the projector a little bit, but my Epson 5030UB is 5.5" down from the ceiling. [ Mark Jan 15, 2015 ]
I didn't use the pole and would estimate about 3 inches, maybe a bit more. It is a little clunky to assemble out of the box, but solid once you do! It has worked well for me. [ MICHAEL B Jan 15, 2015 ]
The top of the projector is about 6 inches from the ceiling but you can make about an inch of adjustment on the attachement points [ Steven Jan 15, 2015 ]
