The bracket is then mounted into the channel with #12 wood screws that are provided with your purchase. Builders glue (liquid nail) can be be applied to the mounting surface if desired to bond the countertop support to the granite. Our countertop support brackets are easier to install than corbels and the installer will understand the instruction immediately. Start at 6 inches in from the edges and space the brackets 18 – 24 inches apart. Using a hand saw, cut along each line to a depth of 1/2 inch.Be sure to remove all of the material in the mounting channel.
Be sure to remove any excess wood chips or saw dust from the mounting channel. Using a level ensure that the bracket is level with the knee wall. Be sure your knee wall or other object that you intend to use as a base for your granite countertop is well built and stable.
We recommend pre-drilling all screw holes to prevent cracking studs. This bracket is used to get the support you need when you don’t have the space in a cabinet or you need to support a granite countertop off the face of a wall by connecting to the studs in the wall.

As the countertop support brackets are being mounted they should be checked to ensure they are level with the knee wall and shimmed to level if necessary. Will my installer understand how to mount the countertop support brackets?
Measure and mark the appropriate mounting locations on the cap of your knee wall. Using a wood chisel (1 inch is a good choice), remove the material between the lines you just cut creating a clean and level mounting channel. Place the bracket into the mounting channel and affix the bracket to the knee wall using the included screws. Working left to right, align the inner edge of the router guide with the horizontal line you just marked and fasten the routing guide at that point. This should leave you with a clean, level channel for the bracket to be seated in. Place the bracket into the mounting channel and affix the bracket to the cap using the included screws. Though you could create mounting channels for the additional mounting points it is much simpler to flush mount by trimming the sheet rock in that area and then apply a sheet rock patch. Though we off-set the screw hole positions to help avoid splits, pre-drilling is a good idea. However the more surface area that is physically attached the stronger and more stable the joint will be for supporting granite countertops.
