Here is a quick and easy installation video for our 388 Folding Bracket Series. These heavy-duty folding shelf brackets are tremendous space savers, particularly in areas with limited space. They also contribute to a clean, minimalistic look in areas of any size. What makes these folding wall brackets so special is their ease of use and smoothness of performance.
Product Specifications: The 388 Folding Bracket is available in anodized silver and black finishes to blend in with most decor. These heavy-duty folding shelf brackets also feature a hefty load capacity ranging from 77 lbs to 176 lbs.
Measure the distance from the floor to the intended position of the underside of the table or shelf that you plan to support using the 388 Folding Bracket.
Note: These heavy-duty folding shelf brackets can support all common types of shelving materials, but remember that the weight of the table/shelf will count against the total load capacity.
Calculate where the holes for the hinge and the collapsible support should be. For more information, refer to Measurement “C” in the measurement table found in your folding wall bracket installation guide.
Screw the hinge and the collapsible support for each bracket into the wall.
Note: Make sure you select screws or wall plugs suitable for the intended load. While our 388 heavy-duty folding shelf brackets will support loads from 77 lbs to 176 lbs. Depending on the particular model, if your screws or plugs are too weak, this could make the true load capacity much lower and pose a safety hazard.
Mount the table / shelf onto the heavy-duty folding shelf brackets.
Note: Please remember to leave some space between the wall and the table / shelf, as this clearance is required when lifting the table / shelf slightly during the release of each folding wall bracket into its “closed” position.
Mark out two holes for each collapsible support. Refer to Measurement “B” in your installation guide.
Loosely attach the collapsible support to the table / shelf with two screws.
Note: Do not tighten the screws at this time! The shelf angle still has to be adjusted in the next step.
Adjust the angle of the table / shelf, then tighten the screws to fully secure it to the collapsible support.
When the table / shelf is in the correct position, fully tighten the last two screws to secure the collapsible support into place.
Congratulations! Your 388 Series heavy-duty folding shelf brackets are now fully installed, and your table / shelf is ready to use.
