Sanus Premium Series VLT5
Tilt wall mount for 51"-80" TVs
Our take on the Sanus Premium Series VLT5 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sanus Premium Series VLT5 tilt mount features fingertip control so you can easily adjust the tilt without tools. The mount can support TVs with screen sizes from 51" to 80" and weighing up to 125 lbs.
The mount lets you tilt your TV up for easy cable connections.
A safe design for mounting
Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the mount just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know it's securely in place. The mount can be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is centered, even if your wall studs are off-center.

Sanus Premium Series VLT5 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
TV Wall-Mount Bracket: The Sanus Premium Series VLT5 TV wall-mount bracket tilts to give you the best view from the floor or couch. The fingertip tilt allows for easy TV adjustments and tilts the TV back for easy cable access. The VLT5 wall-mount brackets allows your TV to slide from side-to-side for perfect positioning on the wall, and a safety tab provides a safe and easy connection you can hear.
TV Capacity: The VLT5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 80", weighing up to 125 lbs.
VESA Mount Bolt Pattern: The VLT5's TV bracket consists of two vertical brackets with multiple slots that can accommodate a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm on back of your TV. The vertical brackets slide along the VLT5's horizontally-mounted wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-700mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLT5 comes with M4, M5, M6, and 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 200mm
- 300mm x 300mm
- 400mm x 300mm
- 400mm x 400mm
- 500mm 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.
Wall Plate: The 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 VLT5 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.
Construction: The bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Adjustments: Your TV can slide left or right along the wall-mount bracket, allowing you to center the TV on the wall. There is also a level adjustment screw on top of either TV bracket to raise or lower the sides of the TV. In addition, you can tilt your TV from -7° to + 12° in order to give you a better viewing angle of your wall-mounted TV; tension knobs tighten the bracket in place. Tilting the TV also provides easier access to cable connections on back of the televisions.
Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLT5:
- Tape measure
- Stud finder/level (included)
- 7/32 Drill bit (for wood studs)
- 3/8" Drill bit (for masonry)
- 1/2" Socket wrench
- Screw driver

3 questions already asked
I'd say it's no more than 3" off of the surface of the wall probably. I took a photo to upload but don't see a way to upload pics here. [ Jeff Aug 28, 2018 ]
Very close, I bought this one and a swivel or articulate type and I would always pay the extra money in the future to have the added space to get to the hdmi's and other ports. Its easiest if you plug them all in before hanging tv on mount for the flusher mount [ Adam Aug 28, 2018 ]
It sits about 1 inch off the wall and is perfect. [ Michael Aug 28, 2018 ]
Not far. I have mine tilted toward my couch (few degrees down) and the bottom of the tv (65 inch) is at the wall. Obviously this means the top of the tv is away from the wall. Haven't measured but it's maybe a couple inches. [ MICHEAL Aug 28, 2018 ]
I bought this for a Sony XBR65A1E and it great. I don't know about any other TV. [ Timothy Sep 21, 2017 ]
should be no problem at all. [ jon Mar 25, 2017 ]
We used this mount on an LG TV. Easy to install and mount the TV Worked great. Reps at Crutchfield answered our question about what mount was correct. They were they only ones we talked to that knew what VESA 400x400 was. Thank you Crutchfield. [ Valerie Nov 29, 2014 ]
The mount will work and it is a solid sturdy mount [ ALAN H Nov 27, 2014 ]
Yes, it is. We used it to mount a 55" and 60" Samsung Smart TV. just follow the instructions and check the site to guide you on how to measure the height from the floor for ultimate viewing. [ TINA Nov 26, 2014 ]
I'm not sure what you mean by "worthy", Andrew, but I am satisfied with my mount, which I used with my 60" Sony. It is well designed for the most part, although the latches where the vertical struts lock into the wall frame can be a bit tricky. It should work with virtually any TV of this size range that has a rectangular arrangement of mounting points provided you take the time to find the studs in your wall to mount the frame. Depending on the requirements of your TV, you also may have to buy mounting hardware (essentially hex head bolts and lock washers) other than those supplied with the unit. They were M8x1.25, as I recall, but the lengths didn't work with my TV. Almost any good hardware store should have a variety of lengths available in this metric size. [ RICK Nov 25, 2014 ]
This is a great product. I mounted my 65 inch Samsung smart TV with no problem. [ Ryan Nov 25, 2014 ]
Yes, I is placed a 60 on it, and it will hold up to a 75. [ ALAN H Nov 25, 2014 ]
This is an awesome TV mount with easy to install instructions and 'dismount' clips. Follow manufacturer instructions as to the dimensions and weight of atV the mount supports. [ Maryellen Nov 25, 2014 ]
