Item details

Free Hanging Brackets are steel hidden supports for free floating shelves, floating bathroom vanities, floating mantel or free floating desks. Strong and sturdy Made in the USA

This bracket is made to mount directly to the 2X4 wooden studs inside your wall before the Sheetrock goes up. By mounting above, as well as below the horizontal piece, this prevents any type of twisting of the horizontal piece. After the bracket is mounted you can cover the wall with the finish board of your choice.

How to Determine The Size Bracket You Will Need:

When measuring for length remember the horizontal piece is measured tip to tip. Remember to also include the part of the brace that will be inside of the wall [usually about 3 inches]. For example if you have a 12 inch wide shelf you would stay 2-3 inches from the outer edge, plus the 3 inches inside the wall. Therefore, 12 inches minus 2 inches plus 3 inches equals a 13 inch self bracket.

How to Determine the Bracket Angle:

The vertical angle placement is determined by which side of the wall stud you are placing the bracket on {you are looking directly at the wall stud}. For example, If you are mounting to the left side of the wall stud you will need a right angled bracket, if you are mounting to the right hand side of the wall stud you will need a left angled bracket. We recommend hitting each of your 2x4 studs for maximum protection. *Bracket shown in above pictures is a left angle bracket.

Not sure what angle? We now offer a universal angle bracket! This bracket can be installed on either side of the stud. The only difference is this universal angle has a blunt end instead of a 45 degree angled end.

Steel is a natural material. When welding it together some “pull” will naturally happen. As with all construction, there are no perfect lines or angles. Though we do everything we can to make sure the brackets are as perfect as they can be without compromising the integrity of the steel’s strength, some brackets may not be a perfect line, perfect angle or perfectly level. Therefore, as in most construction, you may have to shim when installing some of the brackets. Note: By purchasing our brackets, you agree to these terms and understanding.

Have a question? Our family has been in this industry for years. We owned a Kitchen and Bath Design Center and have owned a granite fabrication and installation business; plus been in construction of over 35 years. That is why we designed these brackets. All other steel brackets on the market are not strong enough. Ours are the strongest and the original! We have been imitated but not duplicated. We are here to help.
