Projectors are investments given their hefty price tags. Hence, it is essential to find accessories that would ensure the equipment’s safety. One of the most sought-after items to accompany the projector is a ceiling mount. This eliminates the need to take out the projector when one needs it. And given that the projector will be hanging from the ceiling, it is then worth the owner’s time to find the best projector ceiling mount. That said, here are three great products that are available on the market.
The VIVO Universal Adjustable White Ceiling Projector Mount promises to be the best companion for almost any projector.
It is a fully adjustable projector mount boasting of 360-degree rotation, 15-degree tilt, and 15-degree swivel so that the projector can hit all the right viewing angles. The product has adjustable arms that can support most projectors from various product makers with mounting ranges of 2-12.5 inches.
This ceiling mount promises to have a solid construction from top-grade steel that can support projectors weighing 30 pounds and less. The required mounting hardware is included in the package. The mount should sit 6 inches from the flat ceiling to optimize projection angles.
The product maker promises an easy installation with its quick-release hooks. One merely needs to either tighten and loosen the mountain bolts to attach and detach the release hooks.
This ceiling mount measures 9 x 5.3 X 4.2 inches and weighs 2.55 lbs. The projector mount comes in a white finish.
The Universal Projector Drop-in Ceiling Mount promises secure mounting of projectors to the ceiling with its many virtues.
This product is a two-by-two inches reinforced steel plate where users need to replace the standard ceiling tile with this mount. It has five mounting points for convenient adjustment and alignment. It can support a wide range of projector brands. It is made from reinforced steel plate with a mounting head from cast aluminum.
This ceiling mount can support projectors up to 30 pounds. It is lightweight with a surface that is heat-dissipating. The product also comes with two standard outlets so that users can mount additional equipment along with the projector. It boasts of a 360-degree rotation, 180-degree pitch complete with a lock-down feature for proper projector alignment.
The product maker advises users to use three arms for small projectors and use all four arms for the bigger ones. Extra large projectors with a mounting range of over 12 inches will require the use of the optional extension arms, which can extend the arms from 12-15.7 inches.
This ceiling mount also boasts of a cable management feature to ensure that all the cables are correctly tucked for aesthetic appeal.
The package comes with a two-by-four-foot ceiling grid, safety support cable, clips, toolkit and mounting hardware along with all the tools, screws and washers needed to assemble.
The item measures 24 x 24 x 8.6 inches and weighs 8.97 pounds.
The QualGear Pro-AV QG-KIT-CA-3IN-W Projector Mount Kit boasts of being a top ceiling mount for concrete and regular wood ceiling.
This product can support medium to large projectors weighing as much as 70 lbs. It has a 360-degree rotation. The height of the projector mount should be 8 inches from the ceiling. This item is also 1.5-inch NPT thread compatible. This ceiling mount has a cable management feature for a streamlined aesthetic appeal. It also has a quick-release feature for the convenient attachment and detachment of the projector.
It measures 13 x 5.6 X 7.2 inches and weighs 5.9 pounds. The product maker also offers a five-year limited warranty.
All three products boast of being the perfect companion of the projector. These three have their similarities in features such as the 360-degree rotation, quick-release feature and the ability to support a wide range of projector brands. All three are also difficult to install to the ceiling.
The VIVO Universal Adjustable White Ceiling Projector Mount has many virtues. However, this product suffers too many drawbacks such as its screws are difficult to tighten, and it is incompatible with Epson projectors. This ceiling mount also cannot handle projectors with 12-inch mounting range as promised. It also only works with projectors that have pre-drilled holes. These flaws are the reason why we cannot consider this product as the best projector ceiling mount.
The Universal Projector Drop-in Ceiling Mount and QualGear Pro-AV QG-KIT-CA-3IN-W Projector Mount Kit are two great products that work with a good number of projectors on the market. They have useful features such as cable management feature, among others.
However, the Universal Projector Drop-in Ceiling Mount has more features such as additional outlets and the option to extend the arms to support projectors that have greater than 12 inches of mounting range. The product also boasts of being made from reinforced steel plate with a mounting head from cast aluminum. These features make it the best of the three.
