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.

LSB-100 Lateral Shift Accessory:
Often times ceiling structures will not allow the projector to be mounted in exact alignment with the projection screen. The LSB-100 Lateral Shift Accessory saves an abundance of time and hassles in trying to solve this common problem. The LSB-100 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 LSB-100 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.
