This guide provides instructions for an experienced installer to install the
Extron UPB 25 Universal Projector Bracket.

For product specifications visit www.extron.com.
The UPB 25 is a versatile projector mount that works with most LCD/DLP
projectors weighing up to 25 pounds (11 kg) and accepts a 1.5-11.5 NPT/NPS
pipe. The flexibility of the UPB 25 allows for quick dismounting and
remounting of the projector to the support pipe.
The UPB 25 consists of two parts: the upper Adjuster Plate a, which mounts
onto the projector pipe, and the lower Projector Bracket b which attaches
directly to the projector. An assortment of mounting hardware is included.

PROPER MOUNTING PROCEDURES MUST BE FOLLOWED.
Planning
Before starting the installation:
Check the Projector
c Weight — The UPB 25 can mount a projector with a maximum weight of 25 pounds (11 kg).
c Mounting point location — Use all available mounting points (typically 3 or 4) on the projector base to securely
attach the projector.
c Check the minimum and maximum throw distance of the projector. See the projector documentation for details.
Check the Mounting Location
It is important that you do the following:
WARNING:
Failure to do so may result in projector damage or personal injury, or both.
c Check the structural ceiling to ensure that it can support a load four times the total weight of the final setup.
c Check the installation against local building standards and codes. Verify that it meets the local and state regulatory
requirements, including building, electrical, and safety codes, and UL and ADA accessibility requirements.

Installing the Projector Bracket on the Projector
Follow the steps below to install the UPB 25. Some steps have accompanying
images for clarification, with the applicable step number indicated.
1.
Invert the projector on a flat surface to access the mounting
points. Use a blanket or a similar item under the projector to
protect the projector and the surface.
2.
On each arm, rotate the barrel (on the end of the arm) so that it only
just protrudes from the base of the arm (see the figure at right).
3.
Select the correct sized mounting screws and the appropriately sized
washers that fit the projector mounting point inserts.
4.
To attach the arms to the projector:
The next step (4a) is critical as it provides a flat surface for the
bracket to sit on, and must be done for each mounting point.
a.
Place a washer on a mounting point (see the figure at right).
Rotate the barrel
b until it just protrudes
below the arm.
ATTENTION:
Ü
b. Position the arm so the barrel is over the washer.
c.
Insert the mounting screw down through the barrel and washer,
and into the threaded insert. Lightly tighten the screw by hand.
NOTE: If using the 3- or 4-millimeter screws, place an additional
small washer under each screw head, on top of the
barrel, as well as one on the top of the mounting point.
d. Repeat steps 4a through 4c for all projector mounting points.
Place washer on
mounting point.

Pivot the arms so that they extend towards the center of the
projector (see the figure at right). Adjust the arms as needed
for your projector model.
NOTE: Avoid overlapping the arms where possible.

6.
With the security flange towards the rear of the projector, place the
Projector Bracket on top of the arms and adjust for slot alignment.
Using the slots on the bracket that are closest to the
barrel on each arm, place the clamp under the arm and lightly
secure it to the bracket with the adjustment screws (see the figure at
right). Loosely secure all the mounted arms.
NOTE: Where arms are unavoidably crossed, replace the
original adjustment screw with a supplied 10-32 ¾ inch
adjustment screw and secure both arms to the bracket
using one clamp. In addition, the barrels on the arms
must be raised to compensate, keeping the arms level
and reducing stress.
7.
f Using the slot closest
to the barrel, secure the
arms to the bracket with
the clamp and screw.
As close as possible, balance the weight of the projector evenly
across the Projector Bracket. Adjust the bracket on the arms as needed.
CAUTION: Take into consideration the uneven weight distribution
of the projector when lengthening or shortening the
arms. Distribute the projector weight evenly.
Lift the bracket at opposite corners to assess if the configuration is
approximately balanced.
The projector shown at right is as close as possible to being evenly
balanced.
8.
Check for stress on the arms. To do this loosen the mounting screws
(do not remove). If the arm or the barrel lifts, this indicates stress on the
arm. Adjust the height of the threaded barrels to reduce or eliminate any
torque or stress that might be caused by crossed arms or by projector
mounting points with differing heights. It is important to keep the arms
level and as close (low) to the projector base as possible.
⊗
INCORRECT— Arm not level, causing stress on mounting point
the screw and adjust
h Loosen
the barrel height to reduce torque
on the arms and bracket.
i Tighten down all the
mounting screws.
Washer
CORRECT— Arm level,
no stress on mounting point
9. Check that the projector weight is still as evenly distributed as possible.
Hand tighten down the screws until snug.
CAUTION:
Do not overtighten the mounting screws as this may damage
the projector. See the projector manufacturer’s manual for
the threaded insert torque setting.
