    Cheap - Do Not Waste Your Money

    I purchased these at Best Buy. Apparently Best Buy is the only company selling these, and I'm beginning to see why. They're made of cheap plastic, and Rocketfish doesn't stand behind their product. I tried to attach one of my speakers to one of the arms. The Allen screw never tightened down the speaker, allowing me to turn the speaker. I kept trying to tighten the speaker. Eventually the Allen screw turned real easy, and the speaker fell out of the arm. When I looked at the piece that attaches to the back of the speaker, I noticed the Allen screw had gone completely through the plastic. Mind you, I wasn't torquing the screw. To remove the screw, I had to move the plastic out of the way, and that's when I discovered how flimsy the plastic was. I sent an email to Rocketfish support and was told to call in, which I did. The woman I spoke to was absolutely clueless. After telling her everything I had previously put in my email, which she had in front of her, she transferred me to a company that helps people install Rocketfish TV wall mounts. They don't deal with speaker mounts. I called the Rocketfish back and asked to speak to a supervisor. Instead, the next lay I spoke to transferred me to their parts department. When I spoke to the parts department, the woman asked if I had a service contract. Really! A service contract on a $25 product. She told me to contact Best Buy for help. Best Buy might want to rethink carrying this product. I should have ordered the Definitive Technology speaker mounts on Amazon instead.

    Poor quality and does not work as advertised.

    I have multiple issues with this product: 1. The speaker mounts are advertised to hold speakers up to 8 pounds. The speaker mounts are bending under the weight of my speakers that are about 6 pounds. The weight of my speakers was verified with the manufacturer and double checked on a postal scale. 2. Two of the Five mounts had the threads strip when I was using my fingers and the supplied wrench to tighten the mounting screws. This is due to the low quality plastic used in the mounts. 3. Most of the parts are of a poor quality plastic. I highly doubt that they could safely hold an 8 pound speaker if the mounts are bending under the weight of a 6 pound speaker. 4. Considering the cheap plastic used in this kit, the kit should be $30, not $50. The materials are of similar quality to the cheap speaker mount kits that sell for about $30 on other web sites. 5. After getting the first 2 speakers mounted, I had trouble aiming them where I wanted them to be pointed due to the speaker mounts flexing. 6. I'm considering returning this product. However, I now have the mounting holes drilled into my wall and will need to find other speaker mounts that will cover the holes. Unless you have very small and light speakers, I wouldn't recommend this product.

    I bought these to mount my bookshelf speakers but they did not mount to a pinhole mount style speaker. I did not see anywhere that these to not fit pinhold mounts. On top of that, I did not like the construction of these, and the instructions I felt could be a little better illustrated for people who don't really understand how to mount speakers. No fault on best buys part much there are much better options for speaker mounts.

    I was sold thes mounts by the rep at my local store while purchasing some Bose speakers. I even asked him multiple times if he was sure that these would work. Boy was I wrong. They require you to DRILL INTO THE BACK OF THE SPEAKER! THIS WILL RUIN BOSE SPEAKERS. Luckily I did not drill anything into my speakers. However, it would be nice if the guy getting a $3,000 sale would put a little effort into researching the products in his department.

    When I bought this, I was expecting it was going to work with the speakers I bought. I had to return it because it would not fit the speakers. If you are going to buy speaker wall mounts, I would recommend that you buy the ones only for your speakers and not a generic one that fits all.

    I bought this because it was the first thing recommended to go with my Samsung 3D theater. No matter what we you try to follow the instructions, it doesn’t work with those speakers. Returned it.

    These may work for small theater in a box speakers, but if you have speakers of substance (Definitive Technology 9040SR) these are less than worthless. They are listed as metal. NOT TRUE. These are resin and flimsy. PASS

    The speakers I purchased were too heavy to use these the correct way, I wish they would have sold me better ones. I don't think the salesman new much about them. My installer told me I should think about replacing them soon.

    It is advertized as metal but it is actually made of plastic. It is also supposed to support 8 pounds but it bends dangerously under 5 pounds. We returned this product given the quality was not what we expected.

    Extremely soft screws

    The screws included with these speaker mounts are extremely soft. I'm not looking forward to the day I need to remove these mounts because 3 of the 4 screws will need to be drilled out.

    They don't come per assembled, directions are confusing, weren't even compatible with my basic speakers, stick with stands or go with something other than rocket fish. I've yet to have a good product from them.

    I was told that this was a universal mounting kit that would be easy to use with satellite speakers that only had a key hole slot. What a waste of time and money. Long story short, it was not at all universal.

    I tried mounting my LG soundbar with these mounts and they did not work. The soundbar would end up angled down towards the ground
