    Pretty good, encountered a small hiccup

    I recently purchased a new soundbar to go with my main TV which required me to have the soundbar to be mounted right below the TV to get the best sound. Since I don't use an entertainment stand I needed some sort of mount attachment to go with my current TV mount. Which this product helped me solve this problem pretty well overall. I'm thankful that the product comes with the necessary hardware to get your current TV mount to work with this soundbar mount. The installation went pretty easy mostly overall. The only issue we had was after we had the mount installed to the TV mount that the arms from the back of the TV would start drooping down when we attempted to mount the TV back up on the wall. Found out the screw that I was using wasn't entirely screwed down tightly to the TV which caused the arms to move around I used a shorter screw and decently tighten the screw down to the mount which added a lot more resistance for the arms and prevented the soundbar from dropping any further when we mounted it back on the wall. My advice is to test how easy it is to move any of the soundbar mount arms and be sure that they are not loose to be easily moved. Be sure to move the soundbar to the desired spot from the TV before you tighten anything. Afterward screw the arms down to the TV and test how the arms move. They should have a good amount of resistance and should not move very much. Overall pretty happy with this product and helped with my TV experience.

    Great for mounting soundbar above or below TV!

    This is a solid mount! Definitely worth investing if you're working with limited space, corner of the room setup, or just refraining from drilling into the wall. It comes with several bolts, washers, spacers, and a Hex key (approx 35pcs of hardware - definitely more than enough for any job). The mounts themselves are sturdy. Design makes it easy to adjust from a larger TV down to small. In my case, from a 60" LG to 32" Panasonic with no problems. At its max length it measures about 19" which should be enough for majority of applications. For the quality and versatility in the box, the price seems just right. If I really had to nitpick anything with this setup, it would be that one of the solutions to mounting your soundbar is by hanging it to the mount. In theory, this solution should work but not all bars use this type of mount. The included installation guide is OK but I feel that it could have been more detailed or at least presented multiple installation options. Ingenuity might be key, as it was with my setup. Still, 5 star mount!

    Could be better and simpler, you have to watch for the way your mounting sound bar is mounted to the wall! The instructions on this product assumes that it is going to be able to mount to the soundbar screw keyslots on the rear of it or to 2 screw holes on a metal plate your soundbar is supposed to come with. Well the hardware on my Samsung bar is 2 individual brakes that mount to the bottom of it and that have a big keyslots that slide into an special adapter that looks like a thick plastic washer with a groove that you are supposed to screw into the wall for this brackets to slide into it, if you are not handy you are not going to be able to mount it. I had to drill a bigger hole and cut a little slot in this plastic pieces so the screws that come with this mount could fit into them and I could hang my soundbar. So be aware of that before buying this product make sure that you are going to be able to use it with the mounting options for your soundbar!

    A perfect mount for my powered Sony soundbar

    I bought a Sony XBR-55X850D TV and a powered Sony HTNT5 hi-res soundbar system. I used this Rocketfish soundbar mount to attach the soundbar to the TV. The mount attaches to the TV at the bottom of the mounting frame. You put the soundbar mount underneath the mounting frame and insert a longer screw (included) to attach it to the TV. You also insert a spacer (included) under the upper part of the mount with a longer screw (included). Two small mounting brackets attach to the sound bar (included) and after the TV was installed on the TV mount, I used the supplied hardware to secure the soundbar to the soundbar mounting brackets. It was easier than it sounds. The picture is blurry but the final result looks great in my home.

    This piece was crucial after I decided to wall mount my TV. I nearly forgot about the speaker bar because you'll think I'll just mount it on the wall. Don't!! This attachment was simple and makes the whole TV/Speaker look like one unit. It doesn't block any sensors and looks great. Putting holes in the wall for the mount and speaker would be a lot then what if you mess up leveling it. This piece saves you from that. With a 70in TV I had to just double check the weight of everything to not exceed the mount weight limit but it was fine and under the limit. It only hangs underneath and the support arms reach around behind the TV attaching at the same points as the lower mount screws. Just be sure to include the speaker height when calculating how high your mount needs to be. I grabbed this at the last minute and this really made the whole thing look great.

    Good solution to mount soundbar below TV

    I purchased this with hopes that it would be an easy solution to mount my sound bar below my mounted TV. I read instructions online prior to purchasing this and it seems like the best solution. I knew ahead of time that I would have to remove my TV from my wall mount and remove/reinstall my TV mount to accommodate this mount so I was prepared. Once you get the hard part down it's all pretty simple to do. Per the instructions, I tried to use the provided washers when reinstalling the TV mount with the sound bar bracket but had to skip that step because the provided M8 screws would have been too short if I used them. The bracket still worked and holds well. Since I installed this on my own I had to secure the bracket arms mounted to the TV first then align and mount the sound bar after I put the TV back onto my wall mount. If you do not have an articulating wall mount for your TV I would suggest you ask a friend to help you with taking the TV off and putting it back onto the wall mount.

    Sound Bar Mount Issues:/

    I have a 50" Samsung 4K TV and knew I wanted to mount it on the wall using a full motion mount. The goal was to have to wires showing, a clean overall look. So I went to Best Buy and asked a employee for solutions on mounting a sound-bar and was told this mount would work perfect, I would love it and have no issues... Well after mounting the TV getting all set up I went to put on the Rocketfish Sound-Bar mount on and the holes shown in the instructions did not correlate with my brand new Samsung Sound-Bar.. I called Rockfish and they wanted to help me but admitted that it would not work with my sound-bar and that I could return it but unfortunately we already owned the mount for a month and it was passed the time to return it. So I had to build my own shims and use my own bolts to attach the mount to the sound-bar.. I practically used all my own parts and threw away all instructions because it would not work. I wish I was not told it would work with all my components I had. Very disappointing.

    Title says it all really. I've used this particular sound bar bracket several times on a variety of different sound bars. Haven't had it not work yet. Sure they are more expensive ones on the market, buy one of those if you want. Comes with a variety of different screws, comes with 2 screws in particular that are very useful for the bars that have the key slot style mounting this bracket allows for multiple angles to get the sound bar snug up against the TV.

    Will not fit VESA 100x200, adjusted to fit anyway

    I bought this assuming it would fit my Sony 43" 4k TV but the VESA measurement is 100x200. The mount came 200x100, which would have been great if I wanted to hang my TV sideways. I ended up flipping two of the angled arms upside-down in order for it to work right. Because of this the arms are in the way making my soundbar mount hang lower than it should. Extra arm (such as a straight arm piece instead of an angled out piece that would obstruct other attachments) would be great so that the assumption that the mount fits up to 400x400 also means it is advertised that it will fit anything below those measurements as well instead of just saying "will fit most tvs" leaving the customer in the dark and forced to play a guessing game. Other than that, the mount is very stable, tough, and discreet.

    I honestly only expected this to work so-so, but I have to admit that it does a pretty good job. I paired with an Insignia 2.0 soundbar (NS-SB216) in a bedroom set up with a 32" wall-mounted LCD. Not the easiest thing to install, especially on a smaller TV. But it works well and keeps the lines clean on the small soundbar. It's also not specific to any one size of television as it has many adjustment features to accommodate a multitude of sizes. That being said, I would not recommend this on some of the newer, much larger televisions, such as the latest 4Ks. The wall-mount adapters on the latest/greatest televisions extend off the back of the TVs about 1-1/2", making this soundbar kit nearly impossible to work with; this soundbar mounting kit works best if the entire length of the mounting arm is installed flush against the back of the TV, not off a single point.

    So I am one of those people that read directions before I assemble a product. When I unpacked this item, I realized it met my specifications, except for one thing. I have a tilting wall mount, and I tilt it to an angle that is close to the wall. This sound bar mount doesn't allow you to tilt the TV, as the arms are straight. If you have a tv that is mounted to the wall with no tilt this would work perfectly. Another thing I realized it was going to be a little bit more work to install this sound bar, as my TV was already mounted to the wall. It would have required me to remove the TV from the wall, and remount with the supplied material. The installation would be easier if you buy it with your new wall mount for your tv.

    Initially, I purchased a separate TV and sound bar wall mount. However, when the Geek Quad technicians arrived to mount and setup the TV and sound bar, they informed me about the Rocketfish soundbar mount which can be used to mount my newly purchased soundbar underneath the TV. Alternatively, the TV and soundbar would have been mounted on separate wall mounts. They asked me if I want that option, and without delay, I emphatically said YES! The professionally installed combo TV and soundbar mount has a seamless and eloquent look! Whenever the TV and soundbar mount are pulled away from the wall and/or tilted, they move as a pair as opposed to having the TV moved and/or tilted while the soundbar remains affixed to the wall.

    Too much hardware for my needs... and too much $$$

    I purchased this mount to go with my LG 2.1 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer, as I already have the Rocketfish Tilting Wall Mount for my 42" LG TV. This is a PRICEY mount at $39.99 (Even on sale for $29.99). The soundbar came with a wall mount which could be used with a separate speaker mount. When I pulled the Rocketfish Soundbar Mount out of the box, I was surprised at how much hardware was included (about 16"-20" or more) compared to the space it needed to span (about 4"). I read through the mounting instructions, put everything back in the box, and returned it a few days later. I went to Home Depot and spent around $10 for 2 -8" steel flat braces and some nuts and bolts, which worked perfectly. There MAY be some soundbar/TV configurations for which all this hardware might be necessary. For me, it just wasn't worth the price.

    I purchased this mount as part of a complete makeover of my home audio and vedio system. I had the Geek Squad come out to my house and evaluate the room(s) that I wanted serviced by the new equipment, etc. That service was really great and free too. The tech listened to my desires and recommended this equipment to meet my requirements. When they put it all together with the initial TV, it all worked out very well but unfortunitly the TV was not able to mounted on my wall in such a way that would be acceptible and I had to return it and this mount. It would have worked great if I had been able to keep the TV. Nothing wrong with the mount!

    I purchased a new LG SK10Y soundbar and SK8000PUA (55in) TV from Best Buy. And I rashly assumed this bracket could be used to mount them together. This LG soundbar does not have standard VESA threaded mount holes on the back... instead it uses L-brackets that attach via mount holes on the bottom. The bracket doesn't come with bolts/nuts such that it could be used with LG's brackets. I bought this as an "open-box" item... apparently the guy before me learned the same thing the hard way. Since Best Buy sells both (next to each other in the same aisle), I would expect Best Buy to know these products don't work together and prevent us from finding out the hard way.

    Heavy Duty/Quality Made Mount

    I looked around a quite a few sound bar mounts and ended up going with this mount from RocketFish. I have purchased hdmi cable, splitters & surge protectors from them in the past and have always been impressed with the level of quality and function I get from their products. This mount can accomodate many different tv styles and makes. Comes with everything needed for a tv on a stand on mounted to the wall. Mount itself is heavy duty but has a rubber backing to protect the tv from being scratched. This mount has no problem holding my 32" Sony sound bar above my 4k Sony Bravia which is mounted to the wall via single stud Fleximounts A20 full motion wall mount. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a tv/soundbar mount.

    Annoying

    Posted
    Paige

    It's annoying that I paid $40 for this mount only for the screws not to be long enough, even when following the instructions word for word. I have the Rocketfish TV mount that is even displayed within this user manual. I had to use the Rocketfish supplied spacers (because my tv comes out about 1/2" at the bottom). After using the Rocketfish supplied spacers, washers, and the longest supplied M8 screws in the kit, in the EXACT configuration that the manual shows, the screws only peep out of the bottom of the spacer about 2 or 3 threads. NOT even close to what you would need to screw into the back of your TV!!! What the heck?! !?!!!

    Works as intended, if staying well within limits

    I bought this because my setup doesn't have shelf to place a sound bar on and the wall is uneven brick making impossible to hang it from the brackets. It was very easy to install. The manual states 15 lbs is the limit but when hanging a soundbar around that weight, the brackets have a tendency to give backwards and the sound bar tilts forward. I ended up having to buy a smaller sound bar (5 lbs) and that one stayed in place just fine, but I had to make sure to tighten the tension screws very tight or it has a tendency to want to slide down over the days. Make sure you plan the sound bar well under the weight limits for best results.

    was going to rig up something to mount my soundbar from my tv until I found this. Its a very simple set up but works just as intended. The weight limit stated is for only 15lbs.. (most premium soundbars will weigh more than this) but I found that it holds up very well for even more than the 15lb recommendation. My soundbar is approximately 40 lbs and this mount holds it well. The install is easy (but you'll prob have to unmount your tv first and then remount. I was able to install without completely unmounting my tv with a little help from a friend.

    Terrible product. Though it is touted as “universal”, it is not. It doesn’t have all of the parts necessary to install with all soundbars. I was installing an Insignia sound bar to an Insignia TV, and this mount was still difficult. It did not include the proper screws and it did not include standoff’s to make the sound bar hang correctly. The $40 price tag was way too high for what it actually is. I will finish by saying that I am the General Manager at an Audio Video Design/Build company and have installed or worked around large scale installations for 20 years. I would not recommend this product to anyone. Especially not a customer.
