Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by laurora Good Product!
I don't know what all the complaining is about. My handyman easily installed it. It appeared flimsy to us, but in fact it is holding up a heavy 12,000 BTU air conditioner in my second story bedroom window. It is not bending. It's far nicer looking than a plywood-and-2x4 homemade support and since it installs from the inside, it is compliant with my HOA regulations. If it breaks and dumps my air conditioner on the cement, I'll be sure and write a new review, but it seems to be quite sturdy. I'll admit that the size of it sort of takes my breath away. I would feel better about it as a consumer if it was bigger.

I purchased a 1200 BTU A/C unit and it was heavy. this bracket held the weight. it is narrow so it will be a balancing act to get the A/C unit to sit level. should have purchased two tokeep the unit from movingl.

Easy to follow instructions and easy to install. But the adjustment/angle dose not match all situations. A separate cross brace would be helpful to hold all angles!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mingsai Easy to Install, easy to modify
I have an old 12000 BTU air conditioner left by the previous occupant. I live in an apartment building with metal window sheaths and bricks. A lot of residents have this and after asking the super to install (he wanted $50), I broke out a screwdriver and a drill.
Toughest part of the job was pulling out the old AC. The product comes with three screws and even without reading the instructions, it's clear that the blue one acts as a hinge and the other two are used to hold the plastic spacers onto the metal sheath of the window sill. The biggest caveat for me was to make sure that the initial level was off-center (towards me) because the additional weight would pull it back on center (especially for my big old AC unit).
After installing I found (by going downstairs and giving it the eye test) that my bracket was not holding the AC level. By comparing and contrasting with what my neighbors' installers had done I could see that I needed to place the rubber footing of the bracket directly against the bottom of the window sheath (sitting on the window sill). Previously, I had placed it below the window sill directly against a brick wall.
My only issue is the cost, which I think is pretty high.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MacLean Total waste of money, do not buy this.
This product is advertised as universal - it is NOT.
This product will not work with a window that has a drip edge without leaving a one inch gap below the air conditioner unit.
I bought this to use with a very large LG window unit, thinking (correctly) that the supplied brackets would be insufficient.
It bent in half at the sill and collapsed, leaving me with three mounting holes drilled in my sill and no mount.
Stay away and instead buy some wood while you are there at Home Depot. The wood brackets we all used to construct will hold up better and be safer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharky A GREAT PRODUCT
Just received. Nice and solid. High quality parts and supplied hardware.
Product appears MORE than sturdy enough for the intended application. Just a quick glance at the instruction sheet and the few simple parts included virtually assemble themselves.
This item is not intended to support the entire weight of an AC unit! - as most weight is borne by the window sill. This item merely supports the back and permits correct and permanent rearward tilt angle.
Admittedly, I did not read all the instructions... But, if a person cannot figure out how to apply these few and simple parts just by view one assembly diagram, they really have NO business brushing their own teeth.
Again, I rate this a solid "A" (Mind you I did pay about $30 for mine, but $40 seems reasonable.)

Universal is exactly the correct name for this support bracket. Quality of the product was excellant and it came with all the necessary hardware for mounting. Very easy to install took about 10 minutes to mount. Very sturdy once installed
