About this product


  • Ideal for supporting an overhang when you want brackets to be hidden
  • Also ideal for supporting island end overhangs; use along with Long support brackets  
  • 1/2"-thick heavy-duty American steel, 2-1/2” wide (click thumbnail image to view drawing)
  • Screws (included) secure brackets to inside of 2x4 or 2x6 frame of cabinet base (see thumbnail image)
  • Durable powder-coated finish in black or white; or choose raw steel (must be finished to avoid oxidation)
  • 7 sizes from 10"L to 22"L (front to back); short vertical stem is 4-1/8" high
  • Outside end of horizontal section is beveled for safety

Important Notes

  • Select a length that will leave no more than 4" to 6" of overhang unsupported.
  • Brackets should be spaced no more than 16" to 18" apart, on center.
  • Installation requires notching out sections (2-1/2"wide x 1/2" deep) of the base cabinet wall (see thumbnail image). 
  • A countersunk hole is drilled into the underside of each bracket, 1.5” in from its end (see last thumbnail image). A 1.25”-long screw is provided. These holes and screws help secure the wood top to the brackets and prevent bowing. The screw's diameter is small enough to allow for wood expansion & contraction.


These Short L Brackets for Cantilevered Islands Are Nearly Invisible

Short L-style brackets are designed to support nearly any kitchen island overhang. Simply array these 2-1/2"-wide L brackets, spaced no more than 16 to 18 inches apart, so that they will adequately support the overhang and not jeopardize the structural integrity of the entire top. 

The installation process is fairly simple. First, notches 2.5" wide x .5" deep must be cut into the cantilevered side of the island base. One support bracket will be nested into each cutout and the bracket's vertical stem will be attached to the inside of the island's 2x4 or 2x6 horizontal support, using screws provided.

Short L Brackets Come in Many Sizes and Multiple Colors

Most of the horizontal section of each bracket will be visible to someone looking at the underside of the cantilever from below. That's why the bracket is available in three different colors, two of which are powder-coated - black and white. On the other hand, if you prefer the look of raw steel or wish to paint the exposed portion of each bracket a contrasting color or the same color as your island base, select raw steel.

In order to ensure adequate support of the cantilevered portion of your island or counter top, be sure to order brackets of a length that will leave no more than 4 to 6 inches of the extension unsupported. With 7 different lengths to choose among, you should be able to find a size that fits your new construction or remodel project.
