Chief RPAU Overview

An inverted ceiling mount with the exclusive All-Points security system, the Chief RPAU is the top-selling projector mount in the industry. Ideal for use offices, schools and homes, it is supplied with everything needed for quick installation, a low-profile look and easy projector maintenance.
 
It features a solid steel design, integrated cable management, and independent roll, pitch and yaw. It offers easy projector maintenance, quick projector connect/disconnect, and adjustable mounting legs and feet. The patented All-Points is an integrated security system that uses security hardware at all key connection points to protect projectors from theft. Steel-into-steel construction makes All-Points more effective than other integrated security systems.
 
The RPAU includes a universal interface bracket, making it compatible with 95% of inverted projectors on the market. This makes it perfect for installers who are uncertain of a customer's projector type. However, if you want to confirm the compatibility of this mount with your projector, visit Chief's MountFinder Pro.

    I have the Epson 5040UB projector. Will the RPAU Universal Projector Ceiling Mount Black by Chief Manufacturing work for this projector?

    I also need to flush mount the 5040UB to my ceiling. Will the RPAU Universal Projector Ceiling Mount Black by Chief Manufacturing work for a flush mount?

      I have the BenQ 1080ST, but this mount is fairly universal. The legs swivel
      & can be adjusted out or in to find almost any mounts on a projector. I
      would be surprised if this wouldn't be able to fit any projector sold today.
      My projector is ceiling mounted & I've had it up there for almost a year &
      it's great.
      Hope this helps.

      A:

      Yes. I've used this mount on several different brands of projectors. You will be able to attach the mount with the bracket 'arms' which allows for an infinite number of mounting positions. Since the lens of this projector is centered, try and position the mount as centered as possible on this projector. These instructions will probably make more sense once you take a look at the device in person.

  • Q:

    I bought this mount (RPA & SLBU) as suggested here for the Panasonic AE7000u. The problem is, there are only 4 arms on the universal mount, and 5 mounting points on the Panasonic AE7000u. Please help! I can't find photographs or videos to aid in this installation.

      I have only 3 mounting points on my projector. But the orientation on the mount is such that it allows for multiple configurations. I would use the best 4 mounting locations that balance out the projector and it will be just fine.

      A:

      Just use those 4 arms that came with the mount. Most projectors that I purchase only have 3 mounting spots on the bottom, and they are all securely mounted to the ceiling. Just find a good balance amongst the 4 arms. You should be fine.

      Yes that mount will work. I have used that mount with 4 different projectors and it has enough parts to be configured for every one of them. The best part is after you are done it looks lie it was made for that projector.

      Yes this mount will work with just about any projector that has the capabilities of being mounted on the ceiling. CHIEF Manufacturing mounts are the only type that I purchase for the conference rooms that I design. Good choice.

    • A:

      This mount should be fine for mounting the Epson Home Cinema 3010. If you refer to page 8 (http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/plhc3010/plhc3010ug.pdf) of the Epson 3010's Owner's Manual, you'll see that there are 4 mounting holes, called "mounting bracket attachment points". These are the attachment points for the bracket. This particular bracket's arms are adjustable, so they should have no problem reaching these attachment points.

      I have not used the universal mount on a LGE projector, but have used it on
      Panasonic, Hitachi, BenQ, Proxima and Dell. I have no reason to think it
      would not work on any make or model of projector.
