    A serious ceiling mount with room to “grow”I had been wondering why the LC1A had such a high list price. No longer; this mount is no joke. The pipe it hangs from is nearly as big as my wrist. The brackets and tubes that mount to the TV are nearly as tall and wide as the TV itself. I bought it for use with a 37-inch Toshiba (which weighs less than 40 pounds) and it’s totally overkill. That’s fine, though, because it’ll hold a larger screen when I replace this TV.The fit and finish are exemplary. The construction quality is mind-blowing. The “S” shaped piece (which was not needed in my installation — see below) is a burly chunk of aluminum alloy. The pipes are steel, though, so one might want to consider galvanic corrosion when installing. A drop of two of oil should protect the threads and make assembly easier, too.I also bought Sanus’s vaulted ceiling mount adapter (VMCA5B-01 — see my review of that product on it’s page) because the TV had to be mounted on a 45-degree wall/ceiling. It was the only place in the room that made sense (you’d have to see the room to understand) and everything worked out great. The TV looks awesome and the sound of the built-in speakers is much better now that it’s not sitting atop a piece of furniture. I do wonder, though, if Sanus would be interested in buying the pieces I didn’t use back from me.My only real quibble is that I got only three-and-a-broken-half (rather than four) of part #04. It’s understandable if they use a computerized optical part counting system (a human being with an IQ over 50 would not make that mistake) but it’s definitely a disappointment (and cost the product a star — really more half a star but I can only rate in whole stars). Sanus customer service responded to my email within 24 hours and the part is (supposedly) on it’s way to me now. I figure I’ll be able to put the part on without taking anything apart and the mount certainly holds the TV without it…

    Good, Solid Bracket – Great PriceI ordered this bracket along with a Sony KDL-46XR8 LCD TV. I couldn’t use a wall-mounted bracket, as I couldn’t find a stud in the wall above the fireplace.First off, this is one serious bracket and have no qualms about it holding up my (expensive) new TV :-). It is well engineered, well built and swivels nice and smoothly. It comes with a few different options for mounting height and the adjustments for the tilt function works well with double set screws.Only one problem and the reason for the four stars instead of five: The studs in my ceiling run width-wise to the TV and to the wall it’s behind it, so I was only able to line up two of the four (well, there are two additional holes that lined up as well, but they were along the same plane) mounting holes. The TV doesn’t sit “under center,’ but just forward of the centerline – meaning that with only two bolts holding the mount it tried to push the back of the mount up into the ceiling, and pull the front of the mount down away from it.It could have been my ceiling as the sheetrock wasn’t flush against the studs for some reason. To solve the problem we added a brace across two off the studs and two more bolts running through the front and rear mounting holes and the additional brace.This probably wouldn’t have been an issue if the studs ran the other way, and wouldn’t stop me from buying the bracket again. My ceiling might be unique but wanted to share the experience just the same as it added a few hours to the installation process. I am confident that the mount and the TV aren’t going anywhere!

    Well built – you will need to buy your own mounting parts for some applicationsThis product is expensive but build very well, it is sturdy and well made. I used it to mount my TV on a track (simple pocket door track mounted on the ceiling) in our workout room so we could move the TV in front of the various pieces of workout equipment. This mount gives confidence that the TV is secure. Cable setup and routing is easy. The only problem I had was mounting the TV to the bars, the several sets of bolts that came with the SANUS did not fit my Samsung TV, one bolt set was too long and the other set was too short. I had to go to the hardware store and buy four bolts intermediate in length between the two supplied bolts that came with the unit. If not for that I would have given it 5 stars.

    Sanus Mount Great…UPS delivery..Not so MuchThe Sanus Swivel mount is robust and offers alternative mountings at different heights….Works for Us….Great….Paying for UPS 2 Day Delivery before the weekend was a waste of money… WIth a carpenter in the building all day, two others most of the time, and many others in and out during the day,…How about you make an effort, or just leave the thing outside…..Metal pipes and a frame are not high theft items…. and there was a team working inside the building….Come On UPS….either deliver or Don’t charge us for the service…

    Great Heavy Duty Ceiling MountThis was purchased to replace a cheaper quality ceiling mount (also purchased through Amazon). I am very happy with it’s build quality. The ability to “swivel” was perhaps the greatest selling point for me. It is a bit more expensive than comparable models listed on Amazon, but I personally think that it’s worth the price.

  6. Rhiannon Sheridan

    Perfect!Works better than expected. Very sturdy and well built, thy definitely put a lot of thought into it. Doesn’t look cheap like the picture portrays.Fits my 65 inch perfectly, don’t know if it would fit a 70” though…

  7. Chad Roberts

    Sturdy and strong.I am using this for a 70 inch flat screen TV. This mount is more than enough for a TV of this size and weight. It came with detailed instructions, and wood and concert screws. I will would buy this product again, from this seller.Thank you

    Sanus MountIn conjunction with Vaulted ceiling mount it should make a great folding mount to the ceiling. It actually weighs more than the tv itself. Nice feature is it’s cutouts for wire routing. Like I said it’s heavy though. Had to make additional bracing in ceiling to account for load bearing weight. Considering the total load combined.

  9. Elisa Sillaway

    Bought this based on reviewsSomeone explained how it held up their really heavy TV and how they mounted it… All I gotta say is my 70″ LED is hanging from the ceiling and it is definitely not going anywhere!! Super sturdy mount!
