Product Description

The Pinpoint Mounts AM40 side clamping bookshelf speaker wall mount has been designed for traditional wood cabinet bookshelf style speakers or powered monitor speakers that were not provide with a standard mounting point by the manufacturer or have amplifiers on the back. Using a solid platform with side clamps, the AM40 offers a 90 degree swivel, 7 degree tilt and can support a speaker 5.5-Inch to 11.5-Inch wide, up to 13-Inch deep and a maximum of 50 lbs. Side clamps have specialized non-marking, non-slip isolation pads to provide a safe and secure contact point for the speaker. The AM40 comes with a decorative cover for the wall plate to conceal mounting screws for a clean installation. All mounting hardware is included and sold as a pair for mounting 2 speakers.

It looks like the AM40 might just be the same thing renamed.

I mounted one in plaster walls and did not need a stud, but I used quality expanding drywall anchors to mount these.

They were easy to install and adjust, and they look clean on the wall.

I am halfway through installing these, and for the sake of shoppers I will edit out the more colorful description I have been giving this kit while installing it. Let me just start out with the good....

The good:

The frame is sturdy heavy duty, and should do what I need to get done. Likely the original designer was a logical person, of sound mind. It's a very good design, and had all the hardware worked I would be recommending it highly.

The bad:

The problem is that once again some pencil pushing penny pincher desk jockey must have caught a deal on saving a few cents on the bolts and nuts and screws. As usual he probably knows little more than the righty lefty thumb rule when it comes to hardware. As a result I have to pretty much replace all of it, save the main bolt which I pray I can use as the frame is meant to use it specifically. The screw for walls stripped so easy I wondered if they were only slightly sturdier then lead. I really should know by now to just use my own hardware only for wall screws as all kits like these seem to find the most utterly pathetic hardware available. However more problematic is that for it to swivel correctly it must have bolt slide through and the nut under it to a perfect tension in order to stay and place and still slide. To say it's off is an understatement. It's not even close to getting the nut where it needs to be, and though it does have a washer, it could have 3 additional washers there I am not sure it would make up the difference. All they would have had to do is put ONE together with this hardware at factory to realize it would not work. Either the bolt is too long, or the nut is wrong.

I already had 2 sets of the Btech B77 and loved em, but couldn't find another. It looks like the AM40 might just be the same thing renamed. I ordered them and can't tell the difference.

These mounts look great and are rock solid. The clamp is strong enough to hold my surrounds without any screws. I was nervous about my Front Right and Left, and screwed those in. These look great and work great. I'd recommend to anyone doing a wall mounted speaker setup.

Purchased for my bookshelf right and left side surround speakers to be mounted in my basement. Installation and instruction were very easy to follow. The plates provided are pretty solid, but I have a complaint about the mounting screws. Two of the screw points were so close to the speaker boom that it made it difficult to screw into the wall stud. I predrilled beforehand but these two screws nearly stripped. Wish the speaker wires were able to run through the mounting unit, but it's not a big deal. I also wish the angle could be larger so they could angle down better.

Overall, wonderful way to support my two speakers, very solid. My speakers weigh probably about 8-10 lbs. The tension system to hold the speaker is awesome, didn't need to screw into my speakers. The minor complaints kept this from being a 5 out of 5 rating. Sorry, I'm picky.

I debated new cube speakers or mounting my larger bookshelf speakers. In looking through shelves or mounts, I chose mounts for configurable direction and sturdiness. I was very pleased with these. The vertical bracket has 4 screws provided so you simply find the stud, vertically level, and screw in the bracket. The speaker holder has an ingenious clamp system that securely holds a speaker up to 11" wide. I can't imagine a better mount. It did take me awhile to make sure there were 2 mounts before ordering which there are (for a pair). Good luck.

These mounts look nice and are rock solid but I was disappointed with the quality control, and that's why I gave this product 3 stars.

First, the parts that make the bracket that attach to the speaker are spot welded together. No problem except none of the parts were on plane with each other, so it was difficult to get all of the bracket surfaces to contact the speaker cabinet. The speaker mounting screws, called safety screws, are probably working harder to keep the bracket from springing away from the speaker cabinet than keeping the speaker from sliding off the mounting plate. Deduct 1 star for welded parts held together with a vice grip.

Second, for $58 one would think that the manufacturer could supply sufficient quality hardware out of the box to get the job done. Apparently not. No anchors were supplied for brick or drywall mounting. The wall screws are poor quality and probably the cheapest available from China. Be sure to drill pilot holes or you will quickly strip the screws. My box was shorted 5 safety screws so I had to make a trip to a hardware store before I could finish the job. Black machine screws are not common so go to a store that specializes in hard to find and over priced hardware. Deduct another star.

I purchased these to mount a pair of 19 pound bookshelf speakers I use as surround L and R in my home theater system. Theses wall mounts are 100% steel and of very high quality. I don't know how you can make them any better. Easy to install and assemble.
I mounted mine on dry wall using anchors. I also did not use the safety screws because I did not want holes in my speaker cabinets. I don't tilt the mounts downward (they are tilted only slightly downward) to avoid any chance the speakers may slide out. I believe this mounting set up is safe for speakers under 20 pounds. If my speakers were heavier I would probably have no choice but to use the safety screws and mount the hardware to wall studs. If you are going to tilt 20 pound speakers at a severe downward angle I would recommend the safety screws. If the speakers slide out they probably won't survive the fall.

If you need to hang speakers on your walls and want to avoid wall mounting hardware, try speakers with Built-in keyhole slot for quick and easy wall mounting like Polk Audio M10 bookshelf. I use a pair of these for surround back
channels and they simply hang on the wall using a screw and dry wall anchor.
