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.
Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
metal shavings on product beware
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.
I used this hanger to hang a 5' long, 2' wide piece of heavy plywood that I upholstered to use as the back rest for my kitchen booth. I've had it up for a year or more and its solid. This is a great, secure way to hang a heavy, flat 'something' on your wall. the 20" length hanger is overkill for anything but the heaviest painting. If you look at the picture, its simple to install; I recommend sliding the bars together and flipping them over to see which bar goes on the wall, which goes on the item before you hang it!
Nice Design, Durable, Easy to Install, Sturdy
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.

This wall hanger securely fastened my large mirror to the wall, but the mirror doesn't lay flush with the wall on the bottom. It sticks out from the wall about 2 inches. There's no way to fix this without compromising the structural integrity of the cleats. Probably would choose a different wall hanging method next time.
I purchased this hanger for a wine rack i made for my sister for christmas (knowing there was going to be 6 bottles of wine and 6 wine glasses plus the 10lb wine rack). This hanger will do that with plenty of lbs to spare. Perfect size to get the wall bracket screwed in to 2 studs spaced 16" apart. I will definatly buy this again if i need it for another project

We used the French cleat to hang a heavy wood art piece. It worked perfectly. Included proper hardware. Good instructions. Loved the plug in level. We will be using this again to hang heavy mirrors. The thing I like most is that you could attach the hardware without applying too much pressure to the object; I was concerned , not anymore. We drilled a starter and screwed into wood, then drilled a started and screwed into the drywall. Almost a gentle application that turned exceptionally sturdy. JE SALUE LES FRANÇAIS!
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.
