Dakota Timber Company hardware is“the 90% solution”to the floating mantel problem of systems that are either too complicated, too expensive, or just plain flimsy. With a nearly unnoticeable wall spacing under ¼”, our solid steel brackets are cost-effective, bombproof (well nearly), and make for a fast install by any DIY’er.
Our innovative Heavy Duty Floating Bracket holds up to 300 lbs. When purchasing a mantel through Dakota Timber, your mantel will come pre-drilled to accept this bracket; however, if installing with your own provided mantel, you will need to pre-drill your pin holes with a 13/16" bit.
