While you can use almost any projector mount you want to that is universal, from $18 on Amazon...

https://www.amazon.com/VIVO-Universal-Adjustable-Projection-MOUNT-VP02W/dp/B01014WET4/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518186845&sr=1-4&keywords=projector+mount&dpID=31GGCXk3YEL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

The reality is that the Chief RPMAU mount is the best on the market and will last a life time. A projector mount is not like the projector. It's a product you buy once, and then use on every projector for the rest of your life if you buy the right one. It also is the key point which needs the ability to get the height perfect for the projector you purchase, which can be an issue.

If I were going cheaper than the Chief RPMAU, then I would go with this universal mount:

If uses standard 1.5" threaded pipe which you can buy from them online, or pick up at your local Home Depot store, in the length that you need to get the height adjusted perfectly. It offers one of the best looking universal brackets I have seen on a cheaper mount as well, which, by the looks of it, should hold your projector firmly in place. It also includes the flat ceiling adapter plate and a short column right in the box as part of the kit to keep it all looking nice.

Actually getting the projector mounted properly to your ceiling is the most difficult part of any installation and requires the most measurements and care to get it perfect. Having flexibility with a ceiling mount to allow for that is what separates the cheap mounts from the better mounts.

Thank you,already got one from amazon too,don't know how to choose,so i went to amzaon best seller page and got this,i was a little worried at first,because it is super cheap,but when i got the project mount,it works and fixs my projector well,may be it is just on promotion,don't think its price should be that low for long
