If you’re pushing the limits of sheer size, the Sanus VLT5-B1 wall mount will be perfect for you. With a small degree of tilt it’ll offer a optimal viewing angle all while looking stylish. I found it easy to use and install. Not to mention if you ever more the uninstall was very smooth as well. This is also priced very well considering the sheer size of TVs and weight it can hold.

How To Install The Sanus VLT5
You first connect the wall mount bracket to the TV.
Then you mount the wall plate to the wall as the name suggests.
Then you attach the wall mount bracket to the wall plate.
It’s as simple as that. Below are more details instructions if you get stuck along the way.
This model is almost identical to its smaller brother the VMT5B1, but this version will hold more weight and larger TVs.
|Step 1 – Wall Bracket|
|1-1||Find the TV screws and insert them into the back of the TV.|
|1-2||Determine if the provided spacers are needed.|
|1-3||Measure your TV’s VESA pattern|
|1-4||Using the correct bracket, attach to the VESA holes on your TV.|
|Step 2 – Wall Plate|
|2-1||If using the stud finder, find the studs in your wall|
|2-2||If you have concrete walls, measure and apply wall anchors.|
|2-3||Once holes are made or anchored, attach wall plate to the wall.|
|Step 3- Attach Bracket to Wall Plate|
|3-1 Final Step||The locking tab needs to be in the unlocked position before attaching the TV to the wall plate. Once the TV is on the wall plate, the locking tab needs to be in the locked position.|
HEAVY! You may need assistance with this step.
