This Floating Shelf Hardware Bracket Kit (aluminum) includes 2 interlocking metal brackets. These 1 1/2” wide brackets can be used with shelves up to 2 1/4" thick and up to 4 inches longer than the hardware. This hardware is available in 18”, 30” and 42” lengths.

The first bracket features a semi-circle groove for a bubble level (included) and attaches to the wall with screws (included). The second bracket must be screwed into the shelf. This requires a recessed channel to be created in the shelf in order to insert the bracket and aid in the flush appearance of the floating shelf design. This recessed channel must be 3/8” deep and 2” wide, as well as 1” inch longer on each end than the bracket length.

Attach the first bracket to the wall by placing the screw holes flat against the wall with the level groove situated on the bottom. Use the bubble level in the designated groove to ensure the shelf is level before installing. The second bracket will be screwed into the recessed channel created in the back of the shelf, with the metal lip facing up. Once both pieces are attached, take the shelf and hold it slightly above the wall bracket. Slide it toward the wall in a downward motion so that the lip goes over the angled edge at the top of the first bracket.

Due to the design of these brackets, this hardware can support 100 pounds of weight when attached to studs in the wall. Along with the very strong support structure, these are the perfect option for creating the illusion of shelves floating on the wall without any obvious means of support.
