This one splits down the middle, so if you remove it from the wall you can reinstall it again. The other version (from HD) split half way up the shank making it not reuseable.
These are great when the load is straight down the wall such as a cabinet or shelf bracket. Once you get a single shelf, no bracket, the torque tends to pull out from the wall, not down. Have one with just a small portable phone, a pad and some pencils, that is drooping after 3 months.

Rick,

You can hide the money for your insulation in the hollow part of the shelf when you mount them so you know where it is when you get ready to insulate the shop!

That's good thinking right there , but I think Nostradamus predicted the end of the World before I get my garage insulated . Well that's unless there's some extraterrestrial intervention


I found another one for MT to build

Put a little slot in the top to turn it into a piggy bank.

There is probably a really good joke in there about it being above the toilet ...

Part of tonight's job is to refinish a bathroom counter top made from live edge solid wood. The sticker on the bottom side says it was made in India and looks to be salvaged from an entertainment center. This would explain why the finish didn't hold up to the water around the sink.
Above the coutner was a floating shelf supported along the back and 4" of one edge. They installed a 1/2"x1/2" ledger then glued the shelf over the ledger. Prying it off the wall destroyed the ledger and I'll need to clean the glue out of the dado.
