Projector Mount Points / Weight


Established Member
Hi Guys,

I've got a query on mounting a projector (thinking of the Epson 3200 which is 7.3kg) upside down on either a wall or ceiling mount.

The Epson uses M4x9 screws, and it has 5 holes to screw into, however the wall & ceiling mounts that are at the top of my list only have 3 mounting points on them. Will 3 x M4x9 screws hold the projector safely, or do I need to be looking exclusively at mounts with 4 (or 5!) mounting points?

The last thing I want is having some massive bolts in the wall to make sure it doesn't fall off only for the unit to fall off the mount itself!!

Come on guys! 67 views and not a single response :-(

There must be a good few that can at least provide an educated guess based on past experience (I've never owned a projector before).

I imagine you would be okay just using 3. The Vogels VPC-545 has a maximum weight rating of 10kg with 3 arms (although 4 are included for projectors which have more pointing points). It also includes large screws to fix in into a ceiling joist. For wall mounts some decent sized coach bolts ensure it's going nowhere.
