Prepare for a Kafkaesque Journey!
Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2018
If you have metal studs in your wall (do you...are you sure?) you are purchasing a very expensive and impractical paperweight, until you also purchase a metal stud installation kit. Oh, and that kit won't have the necessary washers, so be sure to purchase those separately. Oh, and the size of the washers is in metric in the instructions, so be sure to either do the mathematical conversion to US system or wait until you get the kit and bring a screw with you to the hardware store and try a bunch of different washers out until you find one that fits. Oh, you're also going to need a rather large 1/2'' drill bit (or you won't be installing anything), so make sure you have that before purchasing this. Oh, and if you don't have a stud finder, just buy one before purchasing this. Oh, and buy some drywall epoxy ahead of time because you'll likely make a bunch of holes.
Ultimately, I'm convinced Sanus and the makers of the metal stud installation kit are both attempting to abdicate themselves from legal liability if your TV falls off and kills a child, by intentionally omitting key elements of the assembly process in this expensive kit. So, if you don't buy the right wall mounting kit, Sanus's lawyers are going to say you didn't install the wall mount properly. If you buy the metal stud installation kit (which is missing the washers) and either: proceed without washers, or purchase the incorrect washers, then the metal stud installation kit maker's lawyers are going to claim that you didn't install the wall mount correctly because you deviated from the instructions. In the end, the thing is on my wall and it seems alright, but do not expect to be purchasing a kit that includes everything you need to install this wall mount. I had to spend about $50 and make 3 trips to the hardware store just to mount this on my wall. Ridiculous.
