Hey guys, my name is Bret Leatherwood and I am the Product Manager for Strong Mounts at SnapAV. We recently redesigned our soundbar brackets to work better with other brands like Sonos. I would love for you guys to try it out and give me your feedback after you install one. Please contact me at the info below so we can set it up. Thanks.[email protected]
Bret, the long slot that goes behind the bracket on the television is nice because it is infinitely adjustable in the vertical plane. It is also a loser because the weight of the soundbar causes the single screw holding it to slip, so the soundbar is frankly not very secure. If you did something as simple as including four star washers for each screw size (I almost always use M8 BTW) then there would be something with some bite to keep that bracket from sliding. When I finished the one I did yesterday, I couldn't help but think, "How long will that stay in place?"
I honestly like many of your products but this one makes me wonder if you ever stopped to ask us if we thought it could work. Like having to carry screws/nuts/washers to attach the speaker to the mount. I had to ask the homeowner to paw through his hardware stash yesterday... nice.
Also, it seems that common products like your own soundbars and the Sonos to name a couple, would have shoulder bolts so you could just slip the speaker on and have it done. Using the Sonos wall mount seems pretty lame.
