Rated 3 out of 5Â by Maverick The designers overlooked screw placement
These are solid brackets with a clean visual appearance you'll be proud to show off. However, the designers made the screw holes slightly wider than will fit the profile of a 2x4 stud. That is to say, the screws will miss the stud if driven straight into this bracket, which is a major problem if you expect the bracket to support a lot of weight.
I used the brackets anyway, and just drove the screws in, angled toward the center. Not a clean solution, because the screw heads to not lay flush.

The brackets were purchased to add additional support to a "floating" shelf. It was determined that the brackets which came with the shelf, which was purchased elsewhere, where not sufficient to hold the weight that the shelf would see.
