Sanus Premium Series VLF525
Full-motion wall mount with articulating arm for 51"-70" TVs
Our take on the Sanus Premium Series VLF525 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sanus Premium Series VLF525 is a full-motion wall mount so you can precisely position your flat-panel TV. A wall mount cover hides ugly screwheads, giving your installation a finished look. The mount can support TVs with screen sizes from 51" to 70" and weighing up to 125 lbs. The articulated arm extends your TV up to 25" out from the wall. You can swivel your TV from side to side, and tilt it up or down for optimal viewing.
A safe design for mounting
Once you've secured the brace to the wall, the arm just slides into position. A safety lock that closes with an audible click lets you know the arm is securely in place. And once you've positioned the arm the way you want it, a sliding tab locks it for stability. The provided stud finder and plastic template ensure mounting hardware is properly spaced.
Fine-tune your TV's placement
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 also be shifted slightly left or right on the wall plate so the TV is centered, even if your wall studs are off-center. Finally, the mount's hollow arm lets you thread cables through it, keeping them out of sight and free from tangles.

Sanus Premium Series VLF525 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Full-Motion Design: The Sanus Premium Series VLF525 full-motion, wall-mount bracket provides a 3-points of movement for an optimal viewing position. The VLF525 extends from the wall (3.625"-25"), tilts up/down (+5°/-15°), and swivels left or right (+/-90°) for easy viewing anywhere in the room.
TV Capacity: The Sanus Premium Series VLF525 wall-mount bracket is designed to support flat-panel TVs from 51" to 70", weighing up to 125 lbs.
VESA Bolt Pattern: The VLF525 full-motion, wall-mount bracket accommodates a horizontal hole spacing on back of the TV of 300mm-700mm and a vertical hole spacing of 200mm-400mm. The Sanus VLF525 comes with M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the bracket to your TV. It will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association:
- 300mm x 200mm
- 300mm x 300mm
- 400mm x 300mm
- 400mm x 400mm
- 500mm x 300mm
- 500mm x 400mm
- 600mm x 400mm
- 700mm 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 bracket is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and high-impact plastic with a durable powder-coated black finish.
Perfect Positioning: The TV brackets and arm assembly let your television slide from side-to-side on the wall-mount plate for perfect positioning of the TV on your wall. There are also two level adjustment screws on the TV bracket to raise or lower (+/-3°) 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 wall studs 16" and 24" on center.
Safety Tabs: Once the wall plate is anchored to the wall studs, the arm assembly can be hooked into the wall bracket. An integrated safety tab on the TV bracket provides a safe and easy connection to the wall bracket you can hear. The TV brackets are then attached to the back of your television and then mounted to the assembly arm; a safety knob & tab secures it in place.
Cable Management: An in-arm cable management channel protects and conceals cables the length of the arm for a clean appearance, while decorative covers conceal assembly and mounting hardware of the wall-plate for a finished appearance.

- Tape measure

Quality brand [ Edward Todd Nov 08, 2018 ]
High quality, has range of motion required. [ Timothy Jun 25, 2018 ]
Needed a mount that I could move the TV over to one side. The studs are 24" and one is right behind the center of TV. Based on a few reviews I should be able to move the TV back to the center. [ MICHAEL Jun 21, 2018 ]

Mounting a Samsung TV! [ Tom Jan 09, 2017 ]

needed the least expensive option to mount a TV in built-in shelves in the corner of the room, that would be easy to pull/swing out for best viewing angles. [ Clark Nov 03, 2016 ]

2 questions already asked
It will handle all the sizes you mentioned. I have a 2016 Samsung 75" on mine and it handles mine with no problem, even when fully extended. My Samsung weighs 80 lbs. [ RANDALL Mar 12, 2018 ]
Yes, the mount is over built. Save all info from new mount and use largest fasteners for your location. I move my tv around for cleaning and it never changes . [ ROBERT Mar 12, 2018 ]
The mount is adjustable so you should be able to get it set to where the brackets are not exposed. Once you adjust it to where you want you can then lock it in. [ Kenny Feb 18, 2017 ] Staff
Thanks for your question. Yes it will. On the TV product page check out the "Accessories" tab for compatible mounts and you will see many different options. Hope this helps. [ Kenny Feb 16, 2017 ] Staff
