Introduction

You've already purchased your front projection system and all your components, and now you're left with a daunting task. How do you mount the projector, without hearing an earful from your significant other; or in this case, in a conference room with a commercial drop-ceiling? Many mounts and stands can be not-so-appealing to the female eye, such as a pole dropping from the ceiling, a stand behind the couch, or a box sitting on the conference room table. You ask yourself: does visual perfection really have to come at such a price?

So…. a sleek streamlined projector was a no-no… but a huge wooden crate attached to the ceiling was acceptable? I will never understand some women.

Yep, some don't have an attic to place that monstrosity up in or the space between the ceiling joists between floors

mtrycrafts, what is your model ?

Boy, you made me dig through all that paper, manuals, etc
It is a Draper Aerolift50, load lift to 50lbs. The projector is about 42lbs.
This box extends 15.5“ down from the ceiling in the closed position.
I think this lift can drop 42” but best to check them on line

Oh, and it was about $2300 not that long ago.

Not sure how that would fit in a residence unless there are other models
Forgot what I paid for mine but a bit of woodworking will tilt the scale to that WAF
