FAQ | How much weight can a Hidden Wire Mantel hold?

We get this question a lot.  First thing, it is very important that you mount the cleat to the wall very securely using long screws, lag bolts or sleeve anchors.  Make sure that you are using studs if you are going over drywall.

Now assuming that you have mounted the cleat well, the mantel should easily hold 50-75 pounds.  We have tested them to 100 lbs. See the Picture below.
