Shelf and ledge are secured to a wall using what is called a simple mount. Follow these steps to install your ledges and shelves properly. Your ledger shelf will come with a wall mounting bracket with bubble level, channel and bubble level in a fixed mounting bracket stud mounting screws, toggle anchors for drywall only and toggle screws for drywall. Only you will need the following tools stud finder, number, 2, Phillips, screwdriver or drill with Phillips drill bit pencil measuring tape, determine the desired placement on the wall and use a pencil to mark roughly where the top of the ledge or shelf will fall within this desired.
Mounting location, locate the wall studs using the stud finder and Mark the location of each stud with a pencil you will use at least one of these studs later insert the small bubble level into the level holding channel of the wall mount bracket and orient the bracket. So that the line of holes are positioned above the level holding channel position, the wall mount bracket against the wall and adjust the bracket side-to-side until one of the many holes aligns with the stud marks, one or two studs may overlap with the bracket, depending on the length of the product once aligned with studs use the bubble level to make sure that the bracket is level on the wall and then use a pen or pencil to mark the wall through the one or two holes that align with studs the bracket itself.
Next to the stud aligned holes above and the wall through the holes located at each end of the bracket for the toggles set, the bracket aside, install the toggles into the wall at the toggle marks previously made using a screwdriver continue rotating until the large flange becomes even with the surface of the wall, do not over tighten returned the bracket to the wall, aligning the in holes with the installed toggles insert a toggle screw into each toggle and tighten until it becomes tight, use a screwdriver or drill to install a stud mounting screw directly into the wall, through the one or two bracket holes that align with studs until tight the wall mounted bracket is now mounted to the wall, lift the ledger shelf against the wall, so that the mounting bracket attached to it is located above the wall mounted bracket.
