    Do Not Use the wall mounting bolts provided!!!

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This mount was recommended over the Insignia mount by our salesman, so I went with it. The BLL2-B1 is a basic, non-articulating mount that must be leveled (read: you need a level to get it straight). That is all we wanted for a flat TV mount. My only complaint is the four provided wall-mounting bolts are total garbage. They are square drive and come with a square-drive bit for a driver/drill. I pre-drilled the stud holes for the bolts, then used the provided square drive bit. The second bolt rounded off the square drive bit AND the inside of the square drive in the bolt with the bolt about 1/2 inch out. Fortunately, I was able to back the bolt out with vice-grips. Tried another, and it rounded out the bolt (not my higher quality bit) when the bolt hit bottom. The first bolt I put in did the same when I attempted to tighten it up. Again, I pre-drilled pilot holes! I am not going to attempt to use the remaining provided bolts. Instead, I am going to use quality construction screws. I cringe at the thought of taking this mount down at any point (like when I sell the house) because I am going to have a devil of a time getting the rounded out bolts out of the wall. The mount is okay, although way overpriced. The wall mounting bolts are cheap.

      Hi Professor,
      Thank you for taking the time to review. The bolts are this way because they allow the TV to have a low profile against the wall. If you need help to get this secured and safe, please call us at 800-359-5520 and we can help. We will be sure to take this into consideration with our product development team as well.

    It does what it's supposed to...

    Does it hold the TV on the wall? Yes. Is that about it? Yes. I bought two of these mounts - one for my upstairs TV and one for my downstairs TV. I realize that I bought the most basic of wall mounts, but that is all I wanted - something super slim to hold the TV on the wall. However, I have two issues with this mount. First, the screws included with the mount are absolutely terrible. When installing the first mount, even after pre-drilling the holes, the two of the four screws stripped out on me while sticking out about a half an inch from the wall. This made it almost impossible to get them all the way into the wall. So when installing the second mount, not only did I pre-drill the holes, I even ran the screws in prior to actually securing the mount. Same thing. My advice here... ditch the screws that come with it and get some hex head lag screws in same size. At least you know you can get them back out of the wall if you need to. Second, after getting the mounts secured and the TVs mounted, both of my TVs are slightly crooked. I used a laser level on both templates and the mounts to make sure they were straight, but they are still just a little off. However, on a 65" TV, a little off looks terrible. I tried adjusting the mounts on the back of the TV, but there isn't any room to move them. Looking back, I should have just bought a full motion mount and lived with it sitting off the wall a bit further.

    Good if you must buy a slim mount

    This is a good mount overall if you are in the market for a very slim mount. I am using it for a 55" TCL TV and should work for most bigger TVs as well. Mount is about 30 inches long and so I found it easier to center TV. There are somethings to keep in mind though: 1. Mount gives you about half an inch in the back and so routing or cable management is very tough. 2. It is hard to use a non-flat power cable since a regular power connector would not fit. I had to order a flat head power cable. You may choose to use a recessed receptacle. 3. Included screws for the mount are very flimsy and they will strip if you do NOT pre-drill. I used a 5/16 drill as recommended and still ended stripping two of the screws. Be very careful. I ended up buying hex type screws from Ace which worked very well. However, being a slim mount, any big headed screws would limit the slide of the TV on the mount. That's why they included flat-headed screws. 4. Suggest buying ultra-thin flexible HDMI cables. TV finally looks good and close to wall once done. For the price of this mount, it could have been better. I would say an inch of space being the TV would make things simpler.

    Poor match for 49" Sony

    Bought this at recommendation of sales associate when I bought the TV (a Sony XBR49X800E). I wanted a slim mount, and this fits the bill nicely. One should be aware though, that with the close wall mounting, it can be very challenging routing cables depending upon the specific TV. My main complaint is that the company's setup wizard, both on their website and their iOS app, is completely off in terms of height of the main wall plate for a given center height of the screen. Fortunately, it was apparent as soon as I measured for the holes, so I just measured distances myself, which is fine but it would have been nice if their tools didn't try to mislead me. Also, as others have noted, the provided lag bolts to go into wood studs are very hard to drive. I had to drill larger-than-recommended pilot holes and lubricate the screw threads with wax. Using a power driver, be sure to go slow, and be careful that the screws may be seriously hot after driving. Finally, it is very hard with the Sony TV to hide the release toggles, as the mounting brackets had to be down almost flush with the bottom of the TV bezel.

      Hi LEK2,
      Thank you for following up with us here. I appreciate this feedback and rest assured I have let our product managers know of the issue. For the "set up" wizard, I am assuming you are referring to our heightfinder tool? I know our app is outdated but if you have questions on the site, we'd like to hear it so we can make improvements. Feel free to call us with this information at 800-359-5520. Your thoughts are important to us!

    I bought this mount for a tv in the bedroom to get it as close to the wall as possible. You see the side of the tv when you walk into the room so I didn't want you to see the back of the tv and all the cables. It works very well for that, it was actually so close to the wall that the soundbar mount I had bought that was supposed to attach to the mount makes the bottom of the tv stick out from the wall so I had to go a different route. My only complaint is that Sanus didn't put the mounting slots all the way across the top and bottom, just the sides. The TV needed to be exactly in the middle of the wall but with the way the studs were positioned I had to mount it very off center and slide the tv over to where one of the hooks on the tv is all the way over to one side of the mount. Installation was relatively simple once you decide on placement and ensured that it was level. The included template is extremely helpful.

    Good Product - Horrible Screws

    I bought a 75 inch TV and decided to hang it on the wall. I was a little bit concerned on whether this mount would be able to hold it. It worked fine. There is only one issue with this product. The steel used in the heads of the screws is terrible. Out of 4 screws, 3 of them ended with the heads stripped and I could not finish inserting them in the walls. So I ended up using a portable circular saw to make a new screw drive in the screws to remove them. I do not understand why they picked the type of screws they used in this product. They should have used screws with hexagonal heads. So hear my advice: go ahead and buy this product, but before installing it go to a Hardware store and get some hexagonal screws and use them instead of the original ones. This will save you a lot of time and frustration.

    Phenomenal TV Mount

    First let me start by stating that this mount can support a 75” TV. When unpacking the multiple packets of hardware, its comforting to know that you will only use one. They are thoughtful enough to even include lag bolts to go into wall studs. Once I loacated two studs that seemed to be randomly spaced around 20” apart, I predrilled into them with my trusty Milwaukee cordless drill, the excitement began. Minutes later, the mount was firmly attached to the wall. The brackets on the tele have swing out braces allowing a great view of your connection ports. This is a huge improvement over past models. Knowing that my TV is securely attached allows me stress free viewing. The matte finish on this mount is outstanding, definitely the work of an ISO9001 certified factory. With all of the extra hardware, if your a name is McGyver, you can build a small robot.

    Fairly easy to assemble, especially if you've used other Sanus mounts in the past. Hanging the TV on the rail feels very solid, and the lower clips engage crisply. The clip-release cords seem thin but I have not had any problems activating the release mechanism. Sanus' online tool is a good starting point for determining position on the wall, but the rails you attach to the TV can be secured in several positions, so the tool seems to be only a guesstimate. Make sure you actually read the instructions and do a lot of measuring before making holes in your wall. Consider adding more spacers than you really need if you plan to hide your controllers behind the TV or if you have thick, non-bendy cables.

    Great Low-Profile MOUNT

    Great looking close to the wall mount. The flip down service tilt tabs provide easy access to the side connections, but the back connections should be made before hanging the TV unless you are a contortionist with a bright light. Best mount for the money if you do not need tilt. However, it can be permanently slightly tilted with mounting spacers at the top and longer screws. The latch release cords are fully adjustable to be flush with the bottom of the TV. One problem is with installing the mount so the bottom latches engage. Mine do not engage because it is so tight and it is too much trouble right now to get it perfect which I could do if I cared.

    Perfect Wall Mount!

    I was a little hesitate to purchase based on some of the reviews but decided to give it a try since I really wanted a mount that was close to the wall. I have a 58' Samsung and used Geek Squad for the install. This mount is perfect for my space, super close to the wall and was a very quick install. I highly recommend the team from Geek Squad they installed my T.V. in less than 45 minutes, were super professional and cleaned everything as they went. Overall VERY happy with this purchase.

    Low-profile wall mount

    Used it to mount a 50” TV at roughly eye-level in our kids’ playroom. The little legs that kick out to allow the bottom of the TV to be angled out while it’s on the mount are a nice touch for cable management. The only adjustment you’ll have once the TV is securely mounted is sliding the screen left or right along the mount. This won’t work well if you want to mount a TV much higher up since you won’t have any angle adjustment up/down or left/right, but that’s not a design issue. Buy a swivel mount if you need those features. This one works perfectly well for its intended purpose so 5 stars.

    Flush mount is very versatile

    I bought this mount at the recommendation of the sales rep at Best Buy. My hopes was I could use it as an ultra flush mount ( < 1" from the wall). Unfortunately due to the type of tv I had, I could not use it ultra flush. Luckly this flush mount came with stand-off adapters to help the variety of tv types and shapes out there. So after installing, my tv sits about 1.5" off the wall, which is a vast improvement over my previous 10-year old mount that sat about 3" off the wall. I'm grateful that this mount was easy to install and versatile enough to work with my tv.

    More cons than pros

    This mount does mount the TV very tight to the wall. Now that we finally have it mounted, everything looks great. BUT - with the location of HDMI and power ports on our TV, this type of fixed mount turned out to be a regrettable choice. There is absolutely no way to reach any of the wiring without taking the TV down off the mount. If you have any trouble with the wiring at all, this gets to be a real pain in the neck. We very much wish we had gone with a mount that allows some movement or more room to access the wiring. So, it is a decent mount, but you need to realize what you are getting into.

    Nice Wall Mount

    Very easy to install and the TV is mounted very close to the wall. It's not bulky like other wall mounts where you can see a lot of the mount. Even tho it's close to the wall with the quick release tabs you don't have to remove the TV to remove or connect cables, it holds the bottom of the TV away from the wall so you have enough access to remove or connect cables. One recommendation...I installed a outlet behind the TV because I didn't want cables showing, if you do that you need a surge protector with a 90 degree plug since the TV is so close to the wall. I also ran the ethernet and sound bar wires behind the wall for a very clean install.

    Great mount for a slim profile

    I have used several mounts and I really like this one. I bought it because I was mounting a TV on the wall of my bedroom and based on the location, a slim profile was important. It's really close to the wall but I don't have any issues accessing cables or anything. The quality is really good. My only gripe is that the mounting screws are REALLY long and even after drilling a pilot hole per the instructions, it was a pain to get them drilled all the way into the stud. The pack comes with a lot of hardware options though. Overall, I would buy it again.

    I think this is a well-engineered product. The installation instructions are good; follow them carefully. All hardware is included for mounting on wood or concrete walls (I think there's also a provision for mounting on steel studs). Adjustments for height and side-to-side position are easy and flexible. Once the TV is mounted it can swing out at the bottom to make space to move cables, and it is easy to lift the TV off and replace as needed. This wall-mount appears to be more than strong enough to hold the size and weight shown in the specifications.

    I purchased this mount for my brand new Vizio 55 in Smart TV. The installation was simple and quick. I selected this Mount specifically because of its low profile and the fact that I did not need any swivel or tilt. The mount offers a convenient tip out option which provides for access to wiring locations. The mount allows for easy side to side positioning to accommodate the fact that studs in the wall may not be centered in the space. My only issue is that the releases to tip out the TV for wire access sometimes bind and are difficult to release but access to the wiring is not a common event.

    only reason for 1 star less is that it is mostly hanging the tv and tv can be slided left to right bu curious children at home if any. I mean to say that it does not have screw feature to fix the TV position. It is quite fancy and functions great for the price. This has all screws and parts included and looks very slim and close to wall, keeping the beauty of LED TV. Once in past i bought a $20 wallmount but after reaching home i found out it didnt have the stud screws. IT ALSO HAS FUNTION TO SLIGHLYTILT THE TV FOR ANY WIRES TO BE ATTACHED LATER.

    I bought this at the same time as my new tv and I was weary about the ease of installation and whether I should just opt to have someone install it for me(I didn’t want it to break or worse, topple over and drop my tv). The instructions were simple, installation took less than 20 minutes(probably would’ve been sooner if I wasn’t so indecisive and didn’t change my mind 4 times). If you need a wall mount or you can do yourself I would definitely recommend this product

    Quality is good. Install was OK. The mount came with numerous screws, bolts and spacers to try and anticipate the huge variety of TVs out there. I bought a 65 inch HDR Samsung. The optional spacers and bolts did not fit quite right and I had to modify the existing parts for the TV to sit properly. The other negative was that the pull strings stick out from underneath the TV. Also had to makeshift a part to hide the strings. A cheaper mount I bought at Walmart had magnetic bits on the pull strings, so they were able to stick to the mount itself and hide away. Overall an average design.
