Minneapolis, MN. - - (January 2006) - - Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in mounting solutions, announces that the RPA -U Universal Projector Mount has won the Audioholics Product of the Year award for top quality products in home theater.


Chief's RPA -U is designed to simplify installation and meet unique installation needs for ceiling projector mounting. There is no assembly required for this easy -to -install, low -profile projector mount.

The RPA -U combines select custom features from Chief's award -winning RPA Series mount with universal projector compatibility. The RPA -U supports most inverted projectors, simplifying installation with adjustable mounting legs and feet, built -in cable management and independent roll, pitch and yaw adjustments for precise and easy projector registration. Quick projector disconnect allows the projector to be removed during regular maintenance for lamp and filter access without losing registration when reconnecting to the mount.

The low -profile design of the RPA -U adds only 1 3/4 inches with the mount top and another 3/4 inch for the projector bracket, making it an aesthetic mounting solution. Among other benefits, the RPA -U has a LSB -100 Lateral Shift Accessory available to further customize this universal projector mount as well as the Chief exclusive All -Points Security System to lock the projector at all key connection points.
