Since the manual might be hard to get, I'll give quick installation instructions.
1) Don't mount this on Drywall only 2) Drill a hole in the wall, it should be large enough to fit the anchor if it's Masonary, or a little smaller then the screw if your putting it in wood, 3) Take apart the mount 4) Put the anchor in a masonary wall, don't use it with drywall or wood 5) Screw in the metal bracket in the back of this mount, but leave it a little loose 5) Slide the mount over the bracket on the wall 6) Screw the speaker on the bracket 7) Reassemble the bracket
PROS: Easy to install Lightweight but durable Amazing value
I bought this mount specifically for some 5.1 speakers that I also bought from Monoprice, the wall attachment is fine but the screw that attaches the speaker to mount is too small. - it fell right out without even catching onto the threading, i need to go to a hardware store to get the next size up. no big deal, screws are cheap. it's just annoying to have to do an extra step or 2 to make it work when both products are FROM Monoprice
PROS: screws onto wall just fine
CONS: the bolt that attaches to the speaker doesn't fit.
also on closer inspection, the silver paint does look cheap but it's going to be hidden by the speaker so it doesn't matter.
Excellent product at a great price. I bought a pair of these to attach to some satellite speakers with nonstandard mounting configurations. One quick trip to the hardware store and they were good to go. Very sturdy and easy to attach to the wall. Couldn’t be happier.
Brackets perfect for my setup and system speakers that I have. Installed easy and value was less than what was being asked for in stores. The 5th Star goes to the Speaker Mounting Screw which was included with the Mounting Bracket. Thank You. FA.
I had to make the hole that holds the speaker to the mount larger, but that was a simple process with a battery powered drill. the mounts went up relatively easily. The plastic has a slight curve in it, so you can't screw the mounting plate flush to the wall or else you won't be able to get the speaker plate to attach to it.
PROS: small, come in silver color, hang relatively easily, strong enough for the job. most affordable mount I found. hangs my yamaha surround speakers no problem.
CONS: included hardware. my speakers have a single threaded hole on the back to hang them from, so I had to go to the hardware store and get matching bolts to connect the speaker to the mount.
My speakers are about 10 inches tall with a threaded hole at the bottom, which made the speaker sit somewhat above the mount. I mounted the bracket upside down so the speaker covers the mount. Works great and the bracket set screw keeps the mount secure to the wall mounting plate.
PROS: Inexpensive and sturdy. no problem for my 6 pound Panasonic speakers.
CONS: none... my issue was with the location of the one threaded mounting hole on the back of my tall narrow speakers.
I bought the silver ones because the black ones were out of stock. I should have waited. The silver transferred to the wall because it sits so tight and scapes some of the silver paint as you push the bracket down. Also I found these do not include the correct mounting screw for the 10565 Premium 5.1-Ch. Home Theater System with Subwoofer speakers that I was trying to mount. They are pretty good mounts though.
