Floating Shelf Bracket FAQS

How much weight can floating shelf brackets hold?

An Ultrashelf bracket can hold 50lbs per each wall stud that it’s attached to. So if your bracket is attached to two studs, your shelf can hold 100lbs; three studs can hold 150lbs, and so on.

Can I use the bracket with my own shelf?

Our shelves are specially designed to fit onto our innovative bracket. That being said, you can build a shelf using our router and jigs that will fit our bracket. This is a great option if you have a piece of wood that you'd like to turn into a shelf.

Can floating shelf brackets be used on drywall?

We recommend attaching your floating shelf bracket to at least one wall stud whenever possible. If needed, the brackets can be attached to the drywall with a high-quality drywall anchor. We typically recommend using toggle bolts. 

Please keep in mind, we only guarantee the weight rating when your shelf is attached to studs.

How hard is it to install a floating shelf bracket?

The great thing about our bracket is you don’t need to worry about having to install your shelf where the studs are. Because there’s a hole every inch, you’ll be able to drill into studs no matter where you place your shelf. So just place your shelf anywhere you want.
