I bought these mounts which are for a particular speaker model and made a wood interface piece that allowed me to mount my speakers. They're not cheap but in my photos you will see that the angle is adjusted with a round metal disk that screws up and down. One complaint I had read was that the clamping type mounts often ended up slipping over time. The disk is not likely to change position on its own but if one is paranoid they could put something on it to lock it in place, preferably something removable.

1. The 2 blocks I made with the two screws that match the spacing on my speakers keyhole mount. You may be able to skip all the work I did if you can attach the steel mounting plate directly to your speaker. I did not want to do that and it would be difficult for me to connect the wires. Also I live in earthquake country and wanted to have access to install the two allen head screws to secure the plate to the wall mount.
2. Finished block. with mounting plate from the wall mount attached. You will see 2 holes that allow me to install the mounting screws that hold the plate to the wall mount. There are 2 tabs that slide into spaces on the wall mount.
3. Mount on the wall. Note the "silver" colored disk that will allow tilt adjustment. Specified adjustment range is up and down up to 20 degrees but I believe with a bit of jiggling I got more than that, closer to 30 degrees but I can't guarantee everyone would get as much....
4 My adapter assembly attached to the wall mount.
5. Then I installed the 2 allen screws using my 2 access holes to secure the mounting assembly to the wall mount.
6. My height speakers are in the upper edge of this photo. Can't tell it but the speakers are angled down to my MLP and angled in as there is a pivot adjustment also. "Pivots right and left up to 120 degrees"
As a final note, the plastic pieces that give the finished look in photo 0 can be a bit challenging to install but with patience I had no problem. IIRC, I had to put the large plastic piece that goes against the wall on before installing my wood mounting piece. the two smaller side pieces are installed at the end, that's where the patience comes in. I think there were some complaints about that, you can check the reviews. If you're a bigger hammer type person that could lead to some broken plastic...
Well, that's the mini-chronicle of my wall mounts, FWIW
Looking forward to updating my 20+ year old speakers some time this year
