The corbel's are just what we needed! We recently purchased a house that had been flipped. A new mantle was installed but the supports used were weak and the heavy mantle fell down. We researched and decided the Parsons Iron Corbels would be our best bet to fix our problem. We installed them the day after we received them and they are definitely a huge improvement from what was originally there. Our mantle is secure. We are totally pleased with this product and the online description was spot on.
