Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rooke6 Good Product!!!
I purchased this product after a failed attempt to fabricate my own mounting cleats out of 2x6s. I was skeptical going in, doubting that the small piece of hardware would safely hold my 80+ pound headboard to the wall. But Im happy to say that the metal cleat does work as advertised, and is also very easy to mount.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars and not 5 is because the limit in length (18"). it doesnt allow for enough mounting surface to attach to more than one wall stud, especially if you are attempting to center a piece. It really should come in a 24" in the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hugecarguy Great Product
I used this product to hang a heavy mirror in our master bath. Originally I was going to build a set of french cleats, but found this product in the store and thought I would give it a try.
I secured the cleats by drilling into concrete. There are plenty of pre-drilled holes on the cleat which gives you several options when securing to drywall, concrete, studs, etc. The hardware provided would probably do well for drywall, but did not work too well in concrete. I ended up using Tapcons in the concrete, which worked perfectly.
Overall I was very pleased with the product. The cleat only added about 1/4 inch between the drywall and the mirror, which was perfect for clearance with the other bathroom items (lighting, faucets, etc).
I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Perfect for Head Board wall mount
I used this french cleat to wall mount a 40 lb. head board to the wall. Worked perfect. The cleat does the trick and screws are tough and hold well in dry wall, without the stud. Be sure to rinse the french cleat with water, as there are a lot of small metal shavings from production still on the cleat. Manufacture should have done this already. Overall, a good product at a good price. Can't go wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katie Steady as can be
I made a king headboard from a very old, heavy, solid wood door. I used this french cleat to hang it on the wall behind the bed and it hangs there steady as a rock. After a year of heavy use, it hasn't budged an inch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Strong, easy mounting
This kit is great - it comes with a level for easy mounting, the screws save time and work in just about anything, and I was able to mount my custom Spice Rack unit securely and easily.
I'll look for this product any time I need to hang something similar. It's not the cheapest, but it's the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Very strong and easy to install
I mounted a very heavy Oak dartboard cabinet that I made to a wall in the office. I used the included screws and they worked perfectly, even in the aluminum studs. Two screws held the unit up just fine and trust me, it's h e a v y.
Personally I think it's a little over priced, but I decided to go with it so I wouldn't have to deal with making cleats myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gottogo Great way to hang heavy items!
The bar has many holes which makes it easy to place a screw into the studs. Outstanding product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suze Works great
We were mounting a wall coat rack and decided to be safe and use two 200 lb cleats--not knowing just how much weight would be hanging on the rack. We were going to create our own french cleat from wood, but that would have been bulky and the wall rack would have hung away from the wall a bit. These work great and are well hidden.
