    They are OK

    I bought these because they appeared to be very well constructed and they they would be perfect. In the end they were just ok. They are getting the job done but they were not quite the right size here an there. They include several connection options to fasten to your speakers but each was slightly not right,. the arm for the mount would not mount at a 90 degree angle like I needed for my installation,. I was able to swap parts from arm to arm and get the 90 angle I needed but then I learned that the notches where not meant to be interchanged. I was able to tighten it down enough so it would not move too bad, also gravity helps in my configuration. Next issue, while trying to configure it I had to bolt it together several times. once I decided how I wanted it, as I tightened the bolt it started to feel soft. I thought the threads we metal but I think some are plastic. The plastic threads did not hold up well. Once I knew how I wanted them configured the rest of the install went well. I would recommend but with some reservations.

    Does the Job but cheap plastic

    The wall mounts do their job and I would say they do their job very well. My only complaint is that the locking screw that connects the wall bracket to the speaker simply tightened right through the cheap plastic. I was simply turning it with no resistance whatsoever and the screw went through the other side. I have included pictures. I am a little disappointed at the cheap quality, but since I already had the brackets on the wall and was able to make it work I decided to deal with it. I would still recommend the wall brackets with that caveat to be careful about the cheap plastic. For a higher end system though you may want to look at something more expensive.

    Good Mounts For Lightweight Speakers

    I bought these for mounting Bose outdoor speakers purchases at Best Buy. Product docs indicate rated for 8lbs each but I doubt that's a safe thing to do with expensive speakers. The Bose manual says each speaker is only 4lbs but mount feel very flimsy. I will either add a safety tether or find alternate mounts. I do like the mounting ease, options, and good looking hardware. I would not hesitate to use for lighter interior speakers.

    These mounts are good for the price, I would have scored them a little higher, but for a couple of things that could have been better. In my opinion they stick out from the wall too much, and that distance is not adjustable. Also they are probably better suited to wireless speakers, as they offered no speaker wire management, so I had to modify mine to route my wire back through the wall. Having said that, they do the job, you can change speaker angles very easily, and they didn't cost more that the speakers.

    Good price but a challenge to figure out

    This ended up being a suitable solution for my needs. I am pretty experienced with assembling furniture and household products, but I struggled with this set up for quite some time. I was just about to the point where I was going to return them when I figured them out. They are also a little difficult to adjust, so take care in aligning them initially. If you want savings from brand name speaker mounts, this is an okay option.

    Tricky to figure out, but worked out

    I used these to install some Bose Lifestyle cubes on the wall, and it took a while to figure out how to get them to mount. Lookng back on it, and if I had to do it again, it wouldn't be so hard to do again, but chances are, people buying these only do it one time anyway. Wish the directions were more clear. They do stick further off the wall than I had hoped, but they are rock solid, and quality product.

    These came with multiple bolts, but none fit my speakers. Had to get my own set of bolts and they had to fit into the predetermined slot. They work fine, but do stick out aways from the wall if straight mounting. Get the job done just maybe not the sleekest set out there.

    I bought this to use with the satellite speakers for my LG soundbar but unfortunately the pieces didn’t fit properly. The screws would come loose and didn’t hold the speakers securely. I returned the item and went with corner mounted shelves. This works and looks better than the mounts, in my opinion.

    Purchased these to hang Klipsch Quintet speakers. Was disappointed in the quality of the product, particularly a lot of plastic and were not sufficient to handle the weight of the Quintet speakers. Could possibly recommend for smaller lighter speakers but ended up purchasing another brand made of stainless steel.

    The ones I got had a screw that was screwed in at an angle but I didn't feel like driving back to the store. Did not effect the functionality. They were somewhat easy to install. Screws are kind of cheap but not a big deal since they're not really holding anything heavy. I did strip 2 of mine out and had to use my own screws. So that sucked

    Super excited when I purchased these from the store. Unfortunately the rep inside the store said the product would work with the Bose speakers ( UB-20) mount but it did not. They could be remanufactured in your home to fit the Bose system speakers but not worth buying a $50 dollar bracket to ruin your crazy expensive Bose system.

    Mounts are made of hard plastic but I can see this being an issue you like adjust your speakers often as the teeth will wear down eventually. However if you're more of a set it and forget it type person....these will work fine. I just wished they had a short adapter to fire straight.

    Not for you if you want them right next to the tv.

    I bought the speaker mounts for the inlaws and they didnt have much wall space where they decided to mount their tv. I had no choice but to mount the speakers close to the tv and unfortunately they stuck out way too much past the tv. I had to take them back due to them just making their set up a little bit funny looking.

    These mounts are well designed BUT the rating on these things, are overrated. Max weight for one mount is 8lb. I got some s10 speakers and they weight at 8lb and the mounts had a slight bend to it. I did not have any confidence with these. These will def do great with lighter satellite speakers for sure. Just wasnt for me

    Mounts work ok. I bought them for my new Sonos Play 1s. The mounting screws are too long for the speaker hole so I had to add a washer to get the bracket tight. I didn't like how far away from the wall the speakers were and I couldn't get one of the speakers to sit level. Would be great for ceiling mount. I bought new mounts.

    Got it to mount my Sonos Play 1 to the wall. It is a bit confusing to figure out how the mounting angles and joints work. But figured it out after a few attempts. It is plastic not metal so its possible that if you are mounting a heavier speaker that the plastic joints may not hold. Overall it worked.

    These speaker mounts worked well with small satellite speakers. However when trying to mount my rears that actually weighed 8lbs I didn't have any room to fit my hand behind the speaker to tighten the mount with the allen key. I had to repurchase a new Omni speaker mount for those.

    Installation went well, some of the plastic covers were so loose that they barely stay in place, and the screws were designed poorly (phillips head slot too small) so they tended to strip out. I would definitely recommend buying your own screws to install these into your walls.

    Very flimsy as you would expect made from plastic. You can get just about any angle out of these. I have a 5x7 bookshelf speaker on them and they feel like they could break off by the slightest bump from something.
