The Hidden L-Bracket is a granite bracket for those individuals looking for a little more support for their counter tops. As you can see from the photos this granite bracket attaches in the same manner as our Knee Wall Bracket but adds an additional 6” vertical tang for additional support. This additional support comes in handy when you have an overhang on a bar top that is deeper than the standard 12” or that is very long and will be seating 4 or more people.
This granite bracket is also extremely helpful when installing a granite top on a kitchen island or standard cabinets when there is no knee wall. In these situations like this simple install a 2 x 4 to the inside back wall of the cabinet, route or chisel out the pocket so the granite bracket sits flush and then attach the bracket to the 2 x 4. For an example see the illustration below.
Like all of our granite brackets once they are installed they are virtually invisible and give your granite the impression that it is floating unsupported. This look is not only visually appealing but prevents you from having to take up valuable space with wooden corbels that get in the way of your knees while sitting at your bar.
We do not suggest using this bracket in the fashion that a normal L Bracket (the angle placed against the wall with none of the bracket supported) is used unless the bracket is around 10 to 13 inches max.
