Hi everyone,

I'm have a monoprice ceiling bracket like this one:



and I want to fit it on a Epson TW3500.
I did it, but the problem is the gravity center of this projector, which is a little more close to the front, and not the really center of the projector.
I think it's not possible to do with this ceiling bracket.

Anyone with the same problem? Solutions?
This bracket is already above of the suspended ceiling, so I must use this mounting.

Regards.

It seems that I'm not the only one:

While I've spoken at length about this, the reality remains that almost all projector ceiling mounts are complete junk. There are a few decent mounts that do a fair job, but you really should be looking at a used Chief RPMAU, the Peerless PRGU or the older and cheaper Chief RPAU mounts.

They cost a fair bit more, but actually will hold a projector without issue.

$100 and you will never need a projector mount again, and you will understand why as soon as you put it on.

With an electric drill you could modify this mount and make it work with some brackets from the local hardware store for even less...

AV_Integrated, thanks for your reply, but I will try something like this:

I just need to find the gravity center of My TW3500 (why Epson doesn't locate the gravity center on the bottom?).
