Which leg (18" or 16") is intended to be vertical - against wall, and horizontal - supporting shelf? Does it matter?

I plan to do as the previous reviewer did, and use 2' wide 1/2" plywood as shelf surface, supported by the brackets screwed with lag screws into garage wall studs.

Answer: 
Actually the bracket is designed to mount with the 16" side against the wall. The holes on the 18" side will not accommodate the #14 screw recommended for mounting to the wall.
I drilled out the holes to 1/4" on the 18" side and mounted that against the wall using 1/4" lag bolts and a socket wrench. That's much easier than using the recommended screws that have phillips heads. I used 3/4" thick Read More

Answer: 
You can put it either way.
I believe the manufacture intended for the 16inch to be vertical. As it has the bigger holes which the fasteners going into the wall should go through.

Answer: 
You can configure the bracket in either dimension, but it will provide greater support if the 18 inch side is against the wall. It really depends upon your intended application. I would also offer that the sticker on the bracket recommends #14 one and one-half inch screws, but I would recommend the same size in lag bolts which can be more easily installed with a wrench.

Answer: 
I used the shorter leg on the shelf and the longer leg on the wall. Seems to be working fine. Mount the shorter leg onto your shelf first (be sure to use short enough screws that you won't poke out the opposite side of your shelf), then hold it up to the wall and mark the holes. Very likely going to need a second person because holding up the shelf is a one man job and marking the holes is another.

Answer: 
Hey Kevin,
The longer the base (vertically) that goes on to the wall, the more stable it would be. So in this case, it would be the 18 inch side in your case especially, since you'd be using 24" shelves.
This isn't a definite rule of thumb, but, it does help with load stability. As long as the lag screws go directly into the studs, then your shelves should hold up fine.

Answer: 
You can use the bracket on standard 2x4" studs, which are actually 1-1/2" wide. Just be careful identifying the stud edges and center the bracket on the stud. The mounting holes will fit, as the holes are just slightly staggered.

Answer: 
Great question Raya. Unfortunately, these brackets DO require a special screw that does NOT come with. You will need to order them from China. They usually take about 4-6 weeks to arrive. As long as you plan ahead, it should be NO problem. Merry Christmas!

Answer: 
You need to purchase the fasteners separately. I sticker on the bracket suggests #14 one and one-half inch screws, but I would recommend lag bolts of the same size so that you can install them easily with a rachet wrench. You can use a screw with a straight or Phillips head, but it requires more effort.

Answer: 
You could use a shelf that is deeper than either dimension, but I would not advise going more than half the depth of the bracket (e.g., 27 inches if you have the 18 inch side on the top or 24 inches if you have the 16 inch side on top) just because you should not have more weight on the front end. It may cause the support arm to bow and fail (although that support arm is very strong!).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Get These. Don't Think Twice I've had these nearly a year now, and zero issues. I'm adding this review now because I need to build another shelf and will be buying the exact same ones, so I figured I'd post a review while I'm here. I had very high expectations for these brackets after holding them in the store and they have not disappointed. I have used them for a fairly important and fairly heavy duty application: holding 4 big monitors, a keyboard/mouse tray, and 2 heavy studio monitor speakers. This gets the monitors off the desk and allows me much more flexibility as I mess around with standing/sit/stand keyboard solutions. I used 1/4" lag bolts instead of screws, and this required the mounting holes to be drilled out just slightly. The piece of wood was an expensive 3' section of 3/4" oak, also from home depot. It's all been rock solid. (I used the same oak as a backing plate for a big TV). In any event, these brackets would certainly hold their advertised weight. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by strong heavy duty brackets High quality. Make sure to use the correct fasteners for the material you're going into. If the weak point is the fastener, this strong bracket will pop right out of the wall. April 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong Bracket, but here are the real facts: so.....I got some incorrect info from the reviews, so here is the correct info: Firstly, the picture is incorrect the way it displays the hole placement. Two wall mounting holes are close to the top of the bracket. both slightly offset. And there is one hole at the far end of the wall bracket. There is no hole in the center as the photos show. Same with the holes for screwing a wood shelf onto the bracket. Two holes near the 90 degree bend and one in the far end, none in the center. And these brackets are designed to mount with the 16" side against the wall, as the #14 recommended screws do not fit the holes in the 20" side. However, I easily drilled out the smaller holes and made them 1/4" holes, so I could use 1/4" lag bolts (1/4 x 1-1/2") instead of the recommended #14 (1/4 x 1-1/2") Phillips head screws. This makes it much easier to install with a ratchet instead of fighting to get a screw gun into those Phillips head screws while the bracket brace gets in the way. So there were these issues, but the brackets are really strong and I'm very happy with the end result using the lag screws. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong, Well Made The paint finish is a hardened enamel that doesn't scratch. There are three holes for mounting. Two are offset to allow fastening past the bracket support. The brackets are easy to install and hold a lot of weight. We used these brackets to hold temporarily hold composite flooring for a project. Each box weighs about 30 lbs. we will add a 3/4" plywood shelf at a later date for a strong storage shelf. July 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely Strong for Toughest Shelving Projects This bracket will hold half-inch plywood shelving with ease. However, it is important to follow the manufacturer's recommendation of using #14 1-1/2 inch size screws into the wall studs for support. You will have no issues with the strength of this shelf bracket as long as you use the proper fasteners. I highly recommend this shelf bracket for any heavy duty shelving application you may have. July 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong Enough If you need shelf brackets for that heavier shelf project, go with these. They are painted and very well built. I'm using these in my utility room, for shelves and I have plans to close in the carport and use them for my shelving needs there also. They look great and are very sturdy. July 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Massive Bracket This bracket is simply massive. The metal is weighty and strong. It has clean lines, just a very basic and no frills design. I used a pair of these to mount a 48" long 16" wide wood shelf in my garage and I have put 3 tub containers on top which hold at least 20-30 pounds each. I used wallboard anchors in my sheetrock, and although I would have preferred to mount these directly into studs, I have not had any issue with the shelf in the week since I put it up. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made for the job I wanted plastic tub shelving in my garage. I purchased 5 brackets and cut some 1/2 inch x 2 foot wide plywood. My tubs are sitting pretty. Great sturdy shelf bracket. Very practical. I will make another shelf using the same materials to store our Christmas tree. June 29, 2014
