5A solid design that fit my projector perfectly and I am happy I purchased it!
By JJCEO
[[VIDEOID:9096bf3f703876330342c395bd9bd6f8]]I needed to install a projector onto a drop ceiling in my basement. I looked at multiple mounting systems and they were expensive, had plastic parts or just wouldn’t work with my needs. This QualGear unit looked good and I knew I could make it work so I went ahead and purchased it.

I liked that the unit had some features that I appreciated:
• It came with a lot of hardware so I would not have to go to the hardware store to purchase additional screws, nuts, bolts and other items. It even included spare extension arms to fit multiple projector designs. It includes spaces and washers and even large mounting screws for the mounting plate. I show these items in my video.
• It is designed to be a universal mount and sure enough it worked perfectly with my projector. It is a BenQ HT3050.
• The mounting unit is made of steel and it is ruggedly designed
• It comes in white so it matched my ceiling and it matched my projector
• It has four ways to adjust the mounting angles for the projector to make sure that it is aligned the way you need it to be.
• I loved that it had a drilling templet in the box and I used it to design and build a mounting system that extended down from the basement ceiling joists to the level of the drop ceiling.
• The mounting bracket is fairly priced, especially if you consider its quality and all of the supplied hardware that is supplied.

Overall I am very pleased with the unit as it worked perfectly and the installation is solid. I put together a detailed video to show how the unit assembles and mounts to my projector. I also show how finding the projector’s center of gravity is important. My video shows the final installation and I think it looks very good.

I rated this mount at 5 stars and I would purchase it again. I hope my video is helpful for you.

4Epson 2040 Owner...You will need new screws.
By Amazon Customer
Let me begin by saying this is a very versatile projector ceiling mount. You can adjust the arms and even extend them according to the projector's machine screw holes.

I initially bought this for a BenQ HT2050 which I was testing out. This mount was easy to install on it. However, I had to return the projector and I ended up going with the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2040 (due to ambient lighting in the room). If I had a dedicated Home Theater room, I would've stuck with the BenQ.

Regardless, I figured this mount would work with the Epson 2040; it does not with the given hardware. After some research, I found that the Epson projector uses M4 12mm screws. The Home Depot I visited was out of stock so I got #8-32 x 1 inch screws. The screws didn't go all the way into the mount arm and Epson projector but it holds the projector like a champ.

If you can get your hands on the M4 12mm screws, you should be good to go with this projector mount.

As for the product itself, it holds the projector well when screwed into a stud and it also allowed me to adjust the projector easily with the awesome pitch and roll design.

Overall, its a good product that should work on your Epson 2040/2045 if you get the right screws. The rest is pretty straight forward.

5This right choice in a crowded field of projector mounting hardware. Just awesome.
By Jeff Dobbins
What an incredibly great and thoughtfully put-together product. I was initially daunted by the drawings - but it turned out mounting my projector on the ceiling was much much easier than I thought. This product included ALL the hardware needed for any type of projector and included sets of all screws, mounting hardware, spacers, screws, nuts, wrenches (yes, even the wrenches!) for a complete install. Lots of extras to accommodate all makes and models of projectors (I presume). I don't usually give glowing reviews, but this product went overboard to make sure the consumer had everything he or she needed to make the complete installation in one sitting without multiple trips to a hardware store. I'm a tough critic and this time I was really impressed. I read the descriptions of all (yes, every one!) the projector mounting products, chose this one and it turned out to be the right choice. Highly recommended. No, they didn't pay me to say this or give me a free product to review. It was just a great product and deserves this great review.
