    Asked by: Steven B.
    This mount works with almost all projectors. It is very accommodating in the design. Sometimes it's a bit of a puzzle to figure out the best way to use it, but I haven't had a projector yet that I couldn't make work with the RPAU.

    What is an inverted ceiling mount? It appears to be the same as universal ceiling mounts from Chief that are not listed as inverted .
    Asked by: Gregg
    The projector is inverted. Mounted upside down. Your projector should have different display modes. Front/Rear. Floor/Ceiling. If you choose Ceiling, it will flip the image upside down because it expects your projector to be upside down (inverted).

    Can this mount work with drop ceilings? If so, what accessories would be recommended to compensate for space in the drop ceiling?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This particular mount uses threaded pipe as a support which is availible in various lengths thereby allowing customized application. This feature was the salient selling point for me as my ceiling is high and vaulted. This mount also provides a very solid base with excellent ridgidity.
