      Comments about Chief RPMA-UW Elite Ceiling Mount for LCD, DLP and CRT Projectors (White ):

      Yes, there are cheaper mounts; but as the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for." I have installed projectors with a couple other, cheaper mounts, but the "Chief" RPMA mounts are definitely superior. A major problem with lesser mounts is that the tilt adjustments can be tricky and do not hold over time. The "Chief" RPMA overcomes these problems. As an engineer, I really appreciate the thoughtful design and quality of this product.

      Each of the three primary adjustments (pitch, role, yaw) are independent and do not affect the other adjustments. They are made with a combination of a friction locking screw and an adjustment cog that is moved with a screwdriver. This permits very accurate adjustments; and once made, they hold.

      The RPMA series includes several security features that prevent unintended persons from easily removing the projector. The most obvious is the keyed lock. The projector mounting plate, or in the case of this "universal" style the arm / plate combination, fits into the body of the mount through "keyed holes." A lever is moved to secure these holes. The locking key is then indexed to prevent the lever being moved back to the release position. This is only one of several well thought out security provisions.

      While the RPA series mounts are available with mounting plates designed for specific projectors, I chose the universal for two reasons. First the universal is available in while to match the ceiling. Second, I was planning to purchase a different projector which would have required a different plate.

      Again the universal attachment works well and has features to prevent unauthorized removal. The only problem I had was with the lock feature at the end of each mounting arm. These lock features retain to arms to four small arm to projector adapters. The lock feature does not move very easily, and I was initially afraid of damaging it.

      The "Chief" RPMA is really an excellent mount. It is very sturdy, and I have no worries about the projector coming loose. I ended up buying the new projector much sooner than anticipated, and the changeover was very quick and painless.
