I also found that after I got everything squared away, it was very easy to knock out of place.
PROS: Looks good
Fits the projector
CONS: Fine tuning of adjustment
difficult to get centered
The'res even a 2-page thread in the AVS forum about installing this babe
I followed Dustin's advice and left the bolts inside and then unscrewed them, that is, used the provided Hex key counterclockwise so they press firmly inside the tube.
It's true that there are a lot of leftover parts after you're finished, but that is not a concern They were put there for specific projector models. If you don't need them, just don't use them. And regarding those weird white plastic screwlike things those are called in Spanish taco fischer, and are used to screw bolts into in concrete slabs, which was my case. So you see... what is a leftover part for you can be a vital piece for someone else!
For those planning to buy this, here is what you need to know
1) Put the 3 arms on the projector first. Use included screws. Let them slightly loose so they can swivel.
2) Next, take the plate and insert the 3 arms into the 3 grooves... they will slide free into the grooves.
3) Now rotate the plate clockwise, and the 3 arms will start to slide into the groove until eventually they cannot slide anymore because of radial tension. With a little luck, the screws on the projector are visible at this point, and not obstructed by the arms. Tighten them at the projector.
4) Tighten the 3 arms now at the plate too.
5) The main rod attaches to the secondary rod with a simple dual springloaded screw mechanism. You first need to turn these screws clockwise until they reach their maximum depth. DO NOT TIGHTEN OR YOU WILL BREAK THE PLASTIC INSERT. Just let it bottom out, and stop!!!
6) Now insert one rod into the other, until the spring-loaded screws snap out and through the holes.
7) Now you need to UNSCREW both screws. UNSCREW TO TIGHTEN! Not intuitive, but that's how it is. You are basically unscrewing the bolts so they press outwards against the rod. You can do this as hard as you want/can for a very tight and solid fit, nothing can break. This is key, you must unscrew for a tight fit.
8) The springloaded mechanism is in fact present in two sections of the mount. You can apply the same principle at the base for a sturdy mount.
9) Optionally, if you want to make sure that the swivelling mechanism (which allows the pj plate to swivel/rotate 15 degrees in all directions) stays in place when you adjust it to a certain position, you can tighten the screw/bolt that holds it in place. I went ahead and did that, and it made the swivel joint tighter. It's slightly harder to tilt now, but it stays in place rock solid.
I couldn't be happier with this mount. I know others have not-so-good things to say, but if you do it right, it is rock solid.
I will post pics with a proper tutorial once I find the time, but I wanted to share this quickly.
