Sanus Premium Series VLL5
Fixed wall mount for 51"-80" TVs
Our take on the Sanus Premium Series VLL5 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 fixed-position mount is a great choice if you simply want to install your TV flat against the wall. This slender mount holds your display just 1-1/2" away from the wall, and it supports a TV with a screen size up to 80" and a weight of up to 125 lbs.
Sanus' ClickStands hold your mounted TV out at an angle, making cable connections easy.
Safe and simple mounting
The mount's brackets can easily be shifted to the right or left, in case the wall studs are a little off-center. You can also make small adjustments after the mount is affixed to the wall, to level it, or even change the height. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know the TV bracket is securely in place.
Here's a cool feature: a handy ClickStand at the bottom of each vertical brace swings out so you can temporarily prop your mounted TV away from the wall, to make cable hookup a breeze — without removing the TV from the mount.

Sanus Premium Series VLL5 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Fixed-Position: The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 fixed-position wall-mount bracket is perfect for viewing your wall-mounted flat-panel TV at eye level.
TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VLL5 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 80", weighing up to 125 lbs.
VESA Bolt Pattern: The VLL5'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 VLL5's horizontally-mounted wall bracket, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing of 200mm-700mm on back of your television. The Sanus VLL5 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.
Construction: The VLL5 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Perfect Positioning: Your TV can slide from side-to-side on the VLL5 wall-mount for perfect positioning 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.
Note: 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 VLL5 to wall studs that are 16" or 24" on center.
Safety Tabs: Once the wall bracket is anchored to the wall studs and the two TV brackets are attached to the back of your television, the two TV brackets hook into the wall bracket. Integrated safety tabs on the TV brackets provide a safe and easy connection to the wall bracket you can hear.
Click Stands: Built-in ClickStands on each TV bracket temporarily hold your mounted TV out from the wall for easier cable connections.
Installation Tools: The following tools are recommended for mounting the VLL5:
- Tape measure
- Stud finder/level (included)
- 7/32" Drill bit (for wood stud)
- 3/8" Drill bit (for masonry)
- 1/2" Socket wrench
- Screw driver
- TV Brackets:
- Width = 3.0625"
- Height = 10.75-18.75"
- Depth = 9.75"
- Wall Plate:
- Width = 30.0"
- Height = 5.0"

Why did you buy this?
I needed a mount with short mounting arms. My OLED TV has the mounting holes very close to the bottom of the TV. Most brackets would stick past the TV. This one does not. It has nice features and was a good price. [ Anthony Dec 09, 2017 ]
I have purchase Sanus products before. They are very good quality, always fit the TV and at a reasonable price. [ Douglas Dec 07, 2017 ]

2 questions already asked
The mounting brackets are not adjustable. You can set the desired lean of the TV by using the appropriate thickness mounting collars on the top and bottom bolts. This will give you the tilt you need. [ Douglas Feb 02, 2018 ]
I'm not sure what adjustments you want to make.. I selected the bolt holes that matched my TV. It stays flat against the wall. You can prop the bottom out to make things easier to attach (once hung), but that's about it. It stays up... (hasn't fallen off the wall yet!). Not sure if that answers your questions. [ E Nov 22, 2016 ]
Yes it worked for my 65 inch Samsung curved tv [ William Nov 28, 2015 ]
Can't answer with certainty, as I don't have that type of TV. I would caution that the Sanus we ordered, had to be sent back to Sanus, because the arm that controls the vertical hold of the screen would not work. They very quickly sent out another, but I had to pay again for a helper, as the TV was pretty heavy for one person to mount, and the second arm was better, but not up to expectation...still won't hold the vertical tilt at the desired angle [ John Nov 27, 2015 ]
