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
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 ( wedge ) down between the wood and the unit. 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: 
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 ?

You cannot drill into concrete or brick because its not your property or because you do not know how ? If the problem is you do not know how , the answer is ; buy a masonry drill bit and the appropriate size Tap Con Masonry Screws ( blue ) .

If the problem however is the screws themselves , I would suggest putting a rubber pad at the end of the brace where it contacts the outside wall and then put two straight brackets (one on each side ) from the horizontal to the angled portion , this will serve to change the brace from an adjustable cantilever to a fixed one.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by easy setup but costly This was a very easy to install item give you that feel of security with the added support to your AC unit. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AC Support Excellent design and strong support but expensive side but cheaper at Home Depot than elsewhere. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective product This product was incredibly easy to install - HOWEVER, while connecting the piece that creates the angle, with the rubber foot, when aligning the holes to the horizontal bracket, the holes did not line up! There is zero way to install this unless you have a very acute angle between that piece and the horizontal piece. The wider the angle, the less likely the holes will line up. I'm so mad that I drilled into my window sill and have to return the item to the store - now I will forever have holes in my BRAND NEW replacement windows. GRRRRR!!!! May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AC Support Works great! So much easier for install of my window unit. Even has leveler so it slopes at the right angle. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Item Bracket is holding a 12,000 BTU air conditioner with no problem at all. Good sturdy product. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ac supports It would have been nice if they said this product is for old wood sash windows and not newer ones June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by http://m.homedepot.com/p/AC-Safe-Universal-Heavy-Duty-Air-Conditioner-Support-AC Great. It works. Nothing fancy. It gets the job done for the larger a/c I have in the livingroom. Sturdy looking. I'd walk under it. June 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't work for me. This is good ONLY if you have a solid wood window sill (stool) into which you can screw the bracket's 3" screws. My 25-year-old Anderson double-hung windows have hollow stools. I used 4" screws and barely reached the rough-opening wood framing; therefore, the bracket was not tight where it was screwed into the stool. Returned product. Good basic idea, though. April 26, 2016
