The bracket is not what I'd question. Its the shelves. My wood shelves said they'd hold up weight. I got them on reg under shelf brackets and as they sag in the middle under the weight of books, i flip them over and stick the books on top until they sag the other way.
I believe it says for shelfs up to 10” , I wouldn’t do any more than 48” specially if it’s for a kids bedroom... used mine on my son’s bedroom with a 9x48” shelf, just make sure your LO can’t reach it! Good luck!!
No, it doesn't come with screw
Steve - We recommend #8 or #10 screws; these are approximately 5/32 or 3/16 respectively.
Albert - Yes this bracket can be painted, but it is recommended you lightly sand all of the surfaces to be painted to allow for greater adhesion of the paint. The present finish is a gloss and may react more favorably to some paints than others; this is why the light roughing of the surface is encouraged.
Thanks MelmosWorld. After thinking this over I am going to use these as end brackets for the bookend feature with a lighter (half) load. Planning on using something stronger (320 lb/pair) for the completely above center bracket like: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-10-in-x-8-in-White-Medium-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-14267/206086898 Note the manufacturer does not recommend that span and mounting per my question on that product.
The bracket measures 3 inches in length and 27/32 inches in width.
On the wall side it will hold 100 lb when mounted into the stud with long enough screws, so if you have 1/2" drywall you will want #10 2" screws. To the shelf however, in most cases, you will want to use a bolt with a nut under the shelf so that the screw doesn't pull through your shelving, especially if the shelf is made of particle board or something.
