4 Heavy Duty Black Steel 6”X8” Countertops Support Brackets Corbel Lot Wood Shelf

You have to knotch out a space so they sit flush with the top of the cabinet. The 8 inch side extends out to support the 12 inch granite overhang. However, the supports are not level and do no sit flush underneath my counter top. They are just what you need to add that finishing touch to set your kitchen apart. They work well in supporting counter tops and many other applications. We wanted something extremely strong for our dishes and such, but we didn’t want it to look like garage brackets. Out of the 16, though, 2 of them were imperfect– 1 did not have recessed holes for the screws, and the other had a reverse slant on the edges. Mounted the 6 inch screw hole side to the inside of the base cabinet. The base cabinets don’t have much thickness of wood to screw into so a 3/4 inch #10 metal screw worked perfectly. The screws are not doing anything but holding the bracket in position long enough to set the granite. Saved a couple hundred dollars from what the granite installer charges.Fortunately its not super noticeable and the plate that mounts to the wall lays flat and sits straight. Not sure that would work well if using in a place where they will get more wear or need to be wiped down regularly like a kitchen or bath.
