The Customized T-Bracket is the go to bracket that will really use the weight of the granite to support your big granite countertop overhang on an island made from back to back cabinets.
This Bracket lays across the top of the cabinets when they are placed back to back in order to make an island with a granite top.
The Angle drops down between the backs of the cabinets and is used to hold the T- Bracket in place.
The T-Bracket needs to be the length of the cabinets and also be long enough to support the granite overhang.
It has a 4 inch angle that sits in the middle of the bracket acting as the Brackets brace or connection point. This bracket This bracket will support your overhangs with no problem. Its perfect for the cabinet applications when space is limited.
The Customized T-Brackets have the angle in the center of the bracket except the “28 inch T-Bracket”. The 28 inch T-Bracket has the angle placed 13 inches from the back end and 15 inches from the front side of the bracket.
All Customized T-Bracket have the 45 degree beveled edge on both the front and the back ends of the brackets.

To Determine Length:
Example: 12 inch overhang, minus 3 inch setback from outer edge, equals 9 inches, plus 9 inches for inside cabinet, equals 18″ T-Bracket. The vertical piece will be placed in the center. [Note, if the back wall of the cabinet is thicker, you may need to add extra inches for the thickness]. PLEASE NOTE: The vertical piece [tang] is placed in the center of the horizontal piece. Therefore, if you have a 10 inch bracket the vertical piece [tang] is directly in the center of the bracket, giving you 5 inches on each side of the T-Bracket. Meaning there will be 5 inches inside the cabinet and 5 inches on your overhang.
How many brackets will you need?
We recommend spacing your brackets 20 inches apart for maximum granite protection; however, you can go up to 22 inches apart.
