    Our Center Mount Bracket, also known as a Center Levered Support, is designed to support countertop overhangs on two sides of a knee or pony wall.

    Customers also use this support bracket in commercial applications including bars with offset overhangs, or for supporting vanities where the bathroom layout is mirrored on the other side of the wall.

    Vertical steel flanges provide additional stability and can be configured to straddle 2x4, or 2x6 framing.

    • Designed for applications that require countertop support on both sides of a knee or pony wall. Also referred to as cantilevered support.
    • This support is nearly invisible creating a clean look.
    • Used to support Granite, Quartz, Wood, Formica, Concrete, Butcher Block and all other countertop materials.
    • Made to straddle 2x4 and 2x6 wood framing. (metal studs need to be reinforced!)

    Determine What Size & Quantity to Order?

    What Size Bracket Should I Use?

    • NOTE: Ideally you want no more than 3" of unsupported countertop extending past the end of your bracket.
    • Lets figure this out. Take the width of your countertop, in this example we will use a 40" wide countertop. Subtract the desired amount of overhang past the end of the brackets, in this case 4". Why 4"? Because you will have 2" of countertop hanging past the bracket on both sides (2"+2"= 4").
    • This is what the math for that looks like: 40" - 4" = 36"
    • Results: You would want to order a 36" bracket.

    How Many Brackets Should I Order?

    • A good rule of thumb for these brackets is to order as many brackets as you have framing studs.
    • You will want to space these brackets 16" - 24" apart. Spacing them directly over the top of your framing studs will give you maximum support and stability.
    • If you have 6 supporting studs under the countertop including the ends it is advised that you order 6 brackets

    Place one Center Mount Countertop Support Bracket over every framing stud in your knee or pony wall.

    Simple installation overview:

    1. Install one bracket directly under a supporting vertical stud in your knee or pony wall.
      1. Alternatively, you can mount brackets to header style supports as well when vertical wall studs are not possible.
    2. Securely mount the bracket to the stud.
    3. Once the bracket is fastened finish the wall with your desired finishing materials, wood, drywall, tile, etc...
    4. Prior to setting the top in place, run a bead of high-quality silicone adhesive down the center of each bracket.
      1. Pro Tip: For a wood countertop application you have the option to secure that to the bracket with screws and skip the glue. For this, you would have to drill holes in the bracket and secure your wood shelf, desk, counter, etc… with screws using the holes you drilled.
