Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use it if I have aluminium storm windows?

I have seen it done.

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?

Asked by: Ric
the 2x4 would have to be securely fastened to the window area.

Is this for a 10000 btu air conditioner

Asked by: dee
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.

can this support be used for casement windows?

Asked by: kathy
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 ?

I would suggest a medium difficulty, especially if installed for the first time. My problem with this product is that it doesn't hold the AC very well. It has just one point of connection with the AC rather than the entire AC, mainly due to the AC shape on the bottom. I've had it installed by an engineer, however it doesn't do its job very well. I guess it's better than nothing, but it has a lot of room for improvement in order to achieve its main safe support function. If you are installing the product on the 2nd floor, have a long ladder nearby, as you'll need it from the exterior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
