Free Hanging Shelf Bracket

    Floating shelves, floating bathroom vanity, floating mantel or hearth, floating desk, floating shower seat/bench, all are supported by the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket. This bracket is the perfect concealed support bracket for supporting a floating bathroom vanity or floating shelf. Your choice of Steel or Solid Aluminum material.

    This bracket is made to mount directly to the 2x4 wood studs inside your wall before the Sheetrock goes up (If studs are metal, watch the video below before installing the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket) the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket must be mounted into wood studs to support the weight of the shelf, etc. We recommend hitting each of your 2x4 studs for maximum protection.

    How to install the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket to Metal Studs:

    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 cover the wall with the finished board of your choice. {pictured above are left-angled brackets}


    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 2-4 inches from the outer edge, plus the 3 inches inside the wall. Therefore, 12 inches minus 3 inches (from the outer edge) plus 3 inches (inside the wall) equals a 12-inch Shelf 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. {pictured above are left-angled brackets}

    We now offer universal angle brackets on our Free Hanging Shelf Bracket. This removes the decision of right or left angle. This universal angle is installed on either side of the wall stud.

      Perfect for floating bench seat

      The product was exactly what I was looking for, and when I called the helpdesk they were very helpful to make sure I got the right product I needed for my application. These brackets are very strong, and easy to install.

      They are our preferred brackets - and that should say a lot coming from an Architectural Woodworking Firm. Great quality, reasonable price, and same day shipping is some of the many reasons we keep coming back!

      Good company, good product, good price

      We got three of these brackets to do a floating bench in our home's entry room. We made the bench from a slab of walnut with an original bark-covered edge (called a "live" edge), so the slab was uneven in width. This meant that we needed our three brackets to be different lengths. All this was no problem, and we got exactly what we needed. The brackets arrived quickly, and were a good price. I had two follow-up questions, which were answered promptly and courteously. I would definitely get these brackets again, if I have another project for them. The company was professional to deal with, and the product is great quality -- at a good price.

      Website was helpful and easy to navigate. Ordering was simple. Shipped quickly. Arrived as expected based on what I'd seen online. Installation went smoothly using the provided screws. Overall, quick and painless solution to "float" our countertop. Highly recommended.
