SANUS VXT5 Wall Mount Review

SANUS VXT5 Description and Review

With the Sanus VXT5 wall mount you’ll notice some differences right away with just its appearance. It is more robust than other models of Sanus wall mounts and this is because of one keep feature that it offers. The ability to rotate rather than just tilt or slide. This allows for a great amount of control over the wall mount when finding the best spot for it to be mounted. Combined with that great feature it offers a large weight coverage and a very large range of sizes of TVs it can support. It is also well priced considering all it can do for just a tilting wall mount.

How To Install The SANUS VXT5

At this point, things could not be easier, unless you had someone come do the install for you. It’s as simple as connecting the wall mount bracket to the back of the TV. This will include the proper VESA pattern and the rolling piece of the wall mount. Then you mount the wall plate to the wall in the position you see best. A level helps a bunch during this step. Then lastly, connect the wall mount bracket to the wall plate. You’ll press into the bottom of the TV against the wall plate until you hear a click. Then you’re all set.

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 | HEAVY! You may need assistance with this step.

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 a locked position.

PROS:

Wide range of supported VESA patterns. Quality materials. Ability to rotate.

CONS:

The degree of tilt could be wider.
