Can I use a 2x4 piece of wood that fits the width of the window verses screwing into the window sill? Would that be sturdy enough?

Answer: 
no it needs to be mounted to the wood frame of the window. mounting to a 2x4 would not secure the bracket and the A/C unit might fall out the window

Answer: 
What your asking is can the 2x4 support the weight of the AC unit , and that's not a substitute for the screws because the problem is not the downward force it is the off center "Tilt " of the unit on the heavy side , ( condenser side or outside ) So my suggestion is to place a short piece of 2x4 , say 10" against the interior side of the window frame on each side of the AC unit and then place a door Jam Read More

This should counter the "Tilt" without the use of any nails. OR ; you could screw into a 2x4 that's slightly less than the width of the window frame but you will still need to wedge the 2x4 against the sides , again because the force is up not down. Read Less

Answer: 
The BTU has nothing to do with this bracket. You have to look by length and weight. The company claims that it can hold up to 160lbs air conditioners. A 10,000 BTU air conditioner is probably somewhere around 65lbs. I've held a 50lbs ac on it without a problem.

Answer: 
No, it can't. Correct me if I'm wrong, but casement windows are crank out & hinge on the side, right? So have you checked how the clearance for the new air conditioner would be? I don't believe that even a small one would fit. And then what would you do to make it fit around the edge between the open window edge and the air conditioner ?

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great support for a window AC! This mount really worked out well. We installed it in an apartment, and didn't have to worry about the outside at all due to the large rubber pad that goes against the wall. The screws through the window sill and into the studs provided all of the security we could want. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very convenient very easy to install. Keeps you from having to drill into the side of your house for air conditioner supports. Only needed one, and the 12,000 btu air condioner is doing fine on it. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happy customer heavy duty, good for the price., i recomended it. for the price is excellent. took me only 20 minutes to install it. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, solid air conditioner This is actually the second time we have bought this brand of air conditioner. A number of years ago, we bought a slightly larger one for the other end of the house and have been quite satisfied with its performance, so we bought a second, slightly smaller one for the bedroom. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install The instructions were very difficult to read. Thank goodness there were pictures. The lettering was tiny and grey instead of black. In a low light situation it was impossible to see. The product itself was pretty easy to install. I had to move the pin a few times to get it to a flat spot on the siding where it didn't slip off. It holds the weight of a 1100 btu heat / air unit very well. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Universal Heavy Duty Air Conditioner Bracket Used this to mount a small air conditioner in a 23 inch window. Couldn't use the smaller version of this bracket, because the wall was very thick, so its rubber support hand had trouble leaning against the wall. Ended up buying the heavy duty version which reaches the wall just fine. Only issue was that I was installing this in a vinyl window, and a concrete wall. The screws ended up being short. They're 1/4 x 3 1/4", so I ended up buying 1/4 x 4" from Home Depot, and those did the trick. Keep in mind that if you have to use more than just the concave and convex plastic parts (additional spacers), then you may need longer screw. It all depends on the type of window you're installing it on, and in most cases there's no need for the extra spacers (which are included with this bracket). August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and sturdy works well on some air conditioner you will need 2 of them for it to work properly. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Easy to install. Cheapest and most convenient solution. We've used 3 for different size air conditioners. We're happy with the results! August 16, 2016
