The Hovr Bracket Slim uses a male and female bracket that interlock and screw together to form unparalleled strength. The average load capacity is 125lbs.*
Our average weight load capacity for an 8 inch depth is 125lbs for our Slim bracket. Have clients to be confident in your project. And withstand usage over time.
In order to save some material, as long as the shelf and bracket are installed correctly, the bracket is strong enough to be using the 1:2 ratio. Meaning that the brackets can be 1/2 the length of the shelf itself. But we always suggest to use 2 studs at a minimum.
No. 99% of the time, you will not be able to see underneath the shelf and the set screws. If that is still a concern, you can purchase a filler for the holes.
We generally recommend your shelf be at least 1.5" thick when using the Hovr Slim Bracket
This is because the bracket itself is 1 1/8" thick, so you will need at least 1/8" of additional material on the top and bottom of your shelf to house and conceal the bracket. Just remember to leave yourself that 1/4" of shelf thickness when selecting your material.
In general, it's best to leave at least 1/4" at the top and bottom of your shelf, since its far too easy to blow out 1/8" with the smallest movement. See below for a diagram of the recommended shelf thickness.

The overall process is not friendly to the amateur who may not possess the high power plunging router, router guide, tapping tool handle etc. that are required for smooth success. Also, while variation and error in the wall plane is mentioned in the instructions, adjustment and adapting for such error is not thoroughly addressed. In my case a slight concavity on the wall near the end of the bracket was not controllable by simply filling the void with caulk, and the result was a slight bend in the mounting bracket and a frustratingly delicate mounting procedure. However, I ended up with a neat, clean, "simple" shelf as desired.
We used the “slim” line of Hovr brackets because I wanted a thinner, less bulky look in my small galley kitchen. They turned out beautiful!
A. Price high… but I figured what the heck 300lbs ( peace of mind for clients) and ease and simplicity sure why not….
B. Not easy if walls are not perfect… what walls are? None…didn’t even fork them down… not sure if the reason was I had the slim version but absolute c*^%# would not refer this to anyone especially diyers…
C. A wood clear that holds hundred of pounds of clamps are amazing and wood is cheaper than the few hundred I spent with you guys…. Spent 1.5 hours just trying to get a 24” shelf up…. Lost money on install and parts ugh that’s not all
C the client watched me struggle with these and now it looks as if I don’t know what I’m doing… I’ve installed many floating shelves and regular shelves…
Yeah I got took on the gimmick your welcome for the few hundred bucks….

Oh ps the videos that are all over YouTube same guy… doing them…. Yeah so a fingernail above… that’s the matter of most blade adjustment etc I had to redo them… yeah sucked
Worked ok, not sure they are worth the price
The bracket is advertised as "Simple" to install - this is far from the truth. First, one needs to router a very precise channel, both in width and depth - there is very little room for error so you need to build a custom jig for the process. Once the channel is completed you install the female bracket in the channel with the screws provided - they clearly state in the instructions that it's imperative to use the screws they send. I attempted to install the first screw and the head sheared off - frustrating! So, I drilled pilot holes for the remainder - the heads sheared off the next 2 screws - very frustrating! I went on YouTube, as suggested, to watch their installation video - it's shows pan head screws being used, not cheap tapered zinc wood screws. So, I used GRK's for the remaining holes and they worked. They also sent wood screws for the installation of the male part of the bracket to the wall - I didn't dare use them, used GRK's again. I sent a complaint to their customer service department via email (they do not have a phone number which would be much more convenient) over a week ago and have not received a reply.
A frustrating and disappointing experience!
