    Hi everyone, I am after a ceiling mount for a Hitachi CP RS55 projector.

    Here's my saga:

    I have been unable to find one specific to this model.

    Also. in trying to find a generic/universal ceiling mount, I am very confused by the screw layout on this projector (see picture, I have put pink squares around what are presumably the the mounting screws).

    Judging by the universal ceiling brackets I have seen, I was expecting a symmetrical arrangement of the mounting screws on the projector, but as you can see from the image the mounting points are all over the place!

    The manual is not helpful.

    Any ideas, please? Am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    I use one of these on my Z5. Cheap and cheerful but does the job fine.
    Going by your pic, it does seem strange that there's no mounting hole at the front of the underside.

    Hi tttyyy345,
    Most of the universal mounts will fit this projector. The one's to look for are the one's with slotted fingers which can each be positioned where you need it. The mounts with the rigid or pressed steel blade type designs will not match up well with the CP-RS55.
    Hope this helps.
