Product Details

Sanus 42"- 84" VisionMount XF228 Black Full-Motion Dual Arm Wall Mount - XF228B1

The VisionMount HDpro™ Series XF228 was engineered with the custom installer in mind. Its pre-assembled interface and strong, ultra-light extruded aluminum wall plate allows the easiest and quickest installation possible. The QuickConnect™ system allows the mounting head to snap onto the arm assembly with one easy movement and unlock with the push of a button. ProSet™ post-installation height and leveling adjustments ensure TVs are always perfectly positioned after mounting. The XF228 arm assembly shifts left and right on the wall plate so the TV is always centered, even if wall studs are not. And the amazing FollowThru™ in-arm cable channel protects and completely conceals all cables without inhibiting movement, even through the elbow. Strong dual arms allow even the largest TVs to extend, retract, tilt and swivel up to 28" from wall with ease. Virtual Axis™ tilting technology allows effortless viewing angle adjustment with the touch of a finger. Universal mounting pattern fits virtually any 42" – 84" flat-panel TV up to 200 lbs.

  • FollowThru™ in-arm cable management channel protects and completely conceals all cables without inhibiting movement, even through the elbow

I paid a local company to install this mount for my 130 pound 65" Panasonic plasma. The install guys absolutely loved this mount - said it was one of the best they had ever seen. They made quick work of the install, and I am extremely pleased with the end result. I hope this mount will serve me well for years to come (even as I upgrade televisions over time).

Use a lot bolts to hole this to the wall. The good things is there's a lot of mounting holes to give you options. For my 65" LCD it doesn't hole the downward tilt which I needed because I mounted it over my fireplace. I need to jury rig the tilt with a little piece of wood to hole the tilt in place or it would slide back to verticle. I would recomend this with caution.

    Comments about Sanus 42"- 84" VisionMount Black Full-Motion Wall Mount:

    I have been using this double arm TV mount for over a year and confident that this model is the best on the market. It operates very smoothly and is heavy duty construction to easily handle the weight. It does not exactly align nor can one adjust the securing screws with 16" center wall studs in a limited space. The only objection I have is the price tag. If money is not a concern, you cannot go wrong purchasing this wall mount.

      Comments about Sanus 42"- 84" VisionMount Black Full-Motion Wall Mount:

      I used the bracket on my 60" Sharp Elite. It fit perfect and was easy to install. It was installed in a very tight space and I needed a bracket that would stay flush within my cabinet opening. It was very easy to adjust so that the TV sits perfectly straight within the space and easy to pull out straight forward for access behind the TV.

      The quality of the bracket is much better than I expected it to be. Great product.

          Comments about Sanus 42"- 84" VisionMount Black Full-Motion Wall Mount:

          Installed in about a hour and a half by myself. Very easy to do. Took it easy installing the lag bolts due to previous reviews and it came out fine. Mounted a Samsung 58" Plasma it's very sturdy. Actually the hardest part, was mounting the TV I only had my wife and daughter to help lift. I also like the Idea that I can get a bigger TV in the future and not need to change the mount.

            very easy and well thought out mount design, although we had to diassemble the part that attached to the tv due to the close mounting holes that were partially covered by the cross support, it went together and installed in no time.

                Comments about Sanus 42"- 84" VisionMount Black Full-Motion Wall Mount:

                This a very well designed product, and I can imagine after the first time a pro installs one, it would be their preferred choice for a fully articulated mount. That said, my asterisk on this great product is for the do-it-yourself home installer, and concerns the lag bolts. The installation manual instructs you to drill 3/16" holes for the 5/16" lag bolts and IMO the supplied lags can too easily be over-torqued and broken. The instructions caution not to over-tighten once reaching the washer but one of of my lags never made it that far and broke with a half inch left to go. I suspect what the pros know is to either drill the standard hole for a 5/16' lag bolt (which is 7/32') and/or they use a stronger lag bolt of their own purchase, which certainly worked for me.

                    I was a little intimidated at first with the weight and size of the box and by the length of the instructions. But it turned out to be very easy to follow the instructions and have the TV mounted in a decent amount of time. Great looking product. The only issue I found was I had to coax my electric plug through the cable management channel. It was a little snug not really a con.

                      This bracket along with most all of the Sanus brand mounts is purely a quality piece. I have been installing TV's since before flat panels were available. This is by far the first time everything has been addressed. I do not think there will ever be a magical way to route cables on a swing arm but this one does a pretty good job. Try and plan on using an AV receiver to do your video switching so you only need one HDMI and you will be good to go. It is on the pricier side of this type of mount BUT you do not want to go with a cheapy for this type of thing because you get what you pay for.
