  • Weight Capacity: 50 lbs (23 kg)
  • Color: Black
  • Column: 1.5 inches NPT
  • Three Mounting Methods:
    • 1. Flush mount to suitable ceilings using the four corner slots in top of the RPA Mount. The RPA allows you to flush mount without disassembly by providing suitable access for screwdrivers and socket sets. +/-25 degrees of pitch when flush mounted. 12 degrees yaw possible on flush mount with slots in top of RPA (Hardware not included).
    • 2. 1/4" Threaded Rod using the four corner slots in the top of the RPA. (Threaded Rod not included.)
    • 3. 1 1/2" NPT Threaded Extension Column using the threaded opening at the top of the RPA Mount. (Threaded Extension Column not included.) Convenient Lamp and Filter Access: Custom design of most RPA projector brackets provides needed access for: quick lamp changes, easy filter cleaning and proper projector ventilation.
  • Quick Projector Disconnect/Reconnect: To quickly and easily remove the projector from the ceiling: loosen thumbnuts connecting the SLB bracket to the universal top. Remove projector and SLB from universal top. The universal top retains the registration adjustments. This feature makes projector servicing and maintenance quick and easy by eliminating the need for re-registration. Security wrench included for use when thumbnuts are replaced with All-Points™ Security System hardware.
  • LSB100 Lateral Shift Accessory: Often times ceiling structures will not allow the projector to be mounted in exact alignment with the projection screen. The LSB100 Lateral Shift Accessory saves an abundance of time and hassles in trying to solve this common problem. The LSB100 allows the projector to be shifted three inches right or left of the installation spot (5 3/4 inches on projectors under 15 lbs.). Also use the LSB100 to easily accommodate different lens placement when projectors are replaced in existing installations. Compatible with all RPA and UPC Series Mounts, and maintains quick disconnect feature. Includes All-Points™ Security System hardware.

F.A.Q.'s [ top ]

  • Q. How much height will the RPA add to my installation? A. The RPA top is only 1 3/4" high plus approximately 3/4" for the projector bracket.
  • Q. Do I need to order the SLB projector bracket separately? A. No, the assembly ships complete when you order an RPA ceiling mount. The SLB bracket is a separate part number and is used only for Chief SMART-LIFTS™. The RPA part number includes both the universal top and SLB bracket.
  • Q. How much assembly is required for the RPA? A. None, just attach the SLB bracket to your projector. If you choose to use All-Points™ you will need to replace indicated screws with included hardware. No disassembly needed.
  • Q. How much weight does the mount hold? A. Each mount is custom designed to support the weight of the projector models specified. However, your ceiling must hold at least 5x the weight of your installation.
  • Q. How does Chief's All-Points™ Security System work? A. All-Points™ is included with each RPA and is optional to use. The system locks the projector and mount with security hardware at all key connection points: Roll, Pitch and Yaw adjustments; bracket-to-projector; and mount-to-bracket.
  • Q. Do I have to order All-Points™ separately? A. No, All-Points™ is included in all RPA packages at no additional cost and is optional to use.
  • Q. Do I need any additional accessories to install the RPA? A. The RPA can be flush mounted to the ceiling without any additional accessories for a low profile, simple installation. However, often times you will need to lower the projector from a structural, finished or suspended ceiling. For these common applications, you will want to order the appropriate accessories.
  • Q. When do I need to use the LSB100? A. Often times, ceiling structures will not allow the projector to be mounted in exact alignment with the projection screen. The LSB100 Lateral Shift Accessory saves an abundance of time and hassles in trying to solve this common problem. Also use the LSB100 to easily accommodate different lens placement when projectors are replaced in existing installations.
  • Q. If I use the RPA with a Suspended Ceiling Kit, do I need an extension column? A. Yes. Any 1 1/2" NPT threaded extension column will work with Chief's Suspended Ceiling Kits.
  • Q. How does the RPA design create natural convection ventilation? A. Chief's brackets are custom designed to allow for airflow that ventilates and helps cool projectors.
