We've designed the most installation friendly Floating Shelf Bracket System for your DIY Project. With our patent pending design consisting of a screw hole every inch along the bracket, you can mount your 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. There are basically 2 steps - 1) Drill holes in your shelf for the bracket rods and 2) Mount the bracket to the wall. Your shelf then simply slides over your bracket. This will save you a lot of time, and in the end, you will have a shelf strong enough to hold 50 pounds per stud.
