STANDARD FLOATING SHELF BRACKET

Our standard floating shelf bracket by Studlock is our most popular bracket that we offer. It's made for shelves that are 1-3/4" to 2-3/4" thick.  If you have a shelf that is thinner or thicker than those dimensions click here to view our other brackets.

PATENT PENDING DESIGN

With our patent pending design consisting of a screw hole every inch along the bracket, you can mount your floating shelf anywhere on your wall regardless of where your studs are located. This is extremely important - especially in kitchens where you will need an exact placement for your shelf, for example, between two upper cabinets. In addition to the versatility of placement, our brackets have simplified your floating shelf installation process.

STEP 1 - CHOOSE YOUR BRACKET LENGTH

Our bracket lengths range from 10" to 70". To determine the length you need, follow this simple rule: Your shelf length must be a minimum of 2" longer than your bracket length.  Refer to the image table here to see all the bracket size options and the corresponding shelf lengths for each side.

STEP 2 - CHOOSE YOUR SUPPORT ROD LENGTH

We offer 3 lengths of support rods to support a variety of shelf depths. The lengths we offer are 4", 6", and 8". To determine the correct length of shelf rod, follow this simple rule: Your shelf depth must be a minimum of 1" deeper than the support rod. 

The Studlock floating shelf brackets will support shelves up to 12" deep. Note: We here at Ultra Shelf use the 6" rod length for all our shelves over 7" but we offer an 8" rod in case you feel you need extra support.

WHATS INCLUDED WITH YOUR SHELF BRACKET

DRILLING JIG

1 drilling jig is included in each floating shelf bracket order. The drilling jig assists you in drilling straight holes into your floating shelf and is sized properly to give it a tight fit for the shelf support rods to prevent sagging. The drill jig is sized to fit a 13/16" auger bit. You can purchase the auger bit by clicking here

The drilling jig also includes 2 screws to secure it to the back of your floating shelf while drilling.

MOUNTING SCREWS

Wood screws to mount your floating shelf to your wall studs are included with each bracket. We supply 2 screws for each support rod. For example, if your floating shelf bracket has 4 support rods, you will have 8 screws which will give you extra screws than what's needed for studs spaced at 16" apart. The pre-drilled bracket holes are designed specifically to fit the screws we supply which are a #10 x 2-1/2" long exterior wood screw. The head of the screw is tapered and locks into the pre-drilled hole of the bracket when securely fastened to the stud preventing the screw from slipping out of the top opening of the hole.

TORX BIT

1 T-25 torx bit is included with each floating shelf bracket order. The T-25 is sized to fit the head of the included wood screws.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Written installation instructions are included in the box. If you don't see the instructions in the box. Please email us at support@ultrashelf.com and we will email you a digital copy.

ADDITIONAL TOOLS - NOT INCLUDED

AUGER BIT

13/16" Auger Bit - Needed for the 3/4" diameter support rods and also fits the included drilling guide. 2 lengths offered: 8" for the 4" and 6" bracket rod lenghts and 18" for the 8" bracket rod length.

ROUTER BIT

3/4" Diameter x 5/16" Deep Router Bit used to router the back of your floating shelf to hide the backplate of the shelf bracket. Thus making your shelf flush against the wall.  

ROUTING JIG

Screw this routing jig to the back of your floating shelf to give you a template in routing a straight line for your bracket to fit inside.

Wonderful Qaulity

Arrived when expected, packaged extremely thoroughly. Looks very heavy duty and I have no doubt it will keep my table solidly on the wall where it belongs. I’ve fallen victim to cheaper brackets and mounts before, I have zero reason to believe this will “fade” over time with the thick steel and faultless welds. (And I work with heavy equipment, I’ve seen a lot of shoddy welding.) Haven’t had a chance to mount yet, but once I do I’ll return to update.

Very Sturdy but not so simple

The brackets are sturdy and well made and overall I am happy with them. I’m a handy person with plenty of tools (luckily) and I will say these are not simple to install. The jig helps keep the bit straight, but any deviation in the path makes these much harder to mount. Be sure you both mount the jig exactly center and drill the hole straight, which is way easier said than done. I also had a post not quite square, so that also added some complexity. You will need to router out 1/4” off the back of the shelf if you want to hide the bracket, otherwise it will be sticking out from the wall. The brackets were packed well, but they were covered with soot from the welding, so give them a good wipe down with a cloth before handling.

Best Product out there!

We always use these brackets for our floating shelves - they are the best and allow for studs to be used without changing where the shelf needs to go! Our offices have many of these and I highly recommend them.

Great Brackets and Great People

I ended up having to contact the shop to change the sizing and they were very helpful and worked with me! Will definitely be buying more brackets from them!
