All the lock/release mounts I looked at in the UK either wouldn't fit or wouldn't scale to a projector weighing 15kg to start with.
In the case of the mount I have, naturally the ceiling plate and drop tube could be positioned first, But the actual plate that fixed to the projector was solid steel and weighed enough on its own! So there I was with the projector above my head, while someone guided me to the tube connection.
I then went through an agonsing 60 seconds while I tried to push up or down slightly so that the "holes lined up", and then someone could put a bolt through.
Man, I really hope this projector never goes wrong, because I do NOT want to get that thing down again.
