Mounting projector on window header
 
I was wondering if it is okay to mount a front projector using a wall mount on the window header. Total weight of projector plus mount is around 20 pounds so I don't think it should be much of an issue, but I also don't want to put stress on the window over time.

Any input would be appreciated.

I agree. I do not believe it will cause any problems any time soon.

Thanks DM. My only concern is mounting in the middle of the header will not cause sagging in the long run.

The header would twist long before it would ever sag and it ain't going to twist.:)

Go for it.:)

If your 'long run' is a couple hundred years, then yes, I'd be concerned.
I think you'll be fine though.

LOL. Thanks guys. Definitely puts my mind at ease.

The window header is designed to support a lot more weight than the projector. The vertical forces on it from above could well be quite a few hundred pounds. A 20 lb. projector is not going to bother it in the least.
