When you order:


The Easy Granite Bracket has three parts; The Rear Pressure Plate, the Forward Support Plate and the Mounting Plate.

The Rear Pressure Plate:


The rear part of the brace is called the Rear Pressure Plate and is the part of the bracket that sits behind the support structure fulcrum. Unlike other granite braces this bracket uses the weight of the countertop sitting flush on it to lever the forward part upward or at least even to the underside of the countertops overhang.

It can be ordered with standard sizes:
  • 2 inches
  • 4 inches
  • 6 inches
  • 7 inches
  • Special Orders

The Forward Support Plate


The forward or the front of the brace is called the Forward Support Plate and is the part of the brace that sits forward of the support structure fulcrum. This is the part of the device that protrudes out from under the countertop overhang and acts as a support or lifting brace under the overhang. It gets its lifting value from the Rear Pressure Plate and sits snugly under the overhang.

It can be ordered with standard sizes:
  • 8 inches
  • 10 inches
  • 12 inches
  • 14 inches
  • 16 inches
  • Special Orders

The Mounting Plate


The middle of the brace has two pairs of screw holes - 2 Rear Screw Holes and 2 Forward Screw Holes. This section is set in the quasi middle. This section is called The Mounting Plate and is in fact a 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch square. 6.25 square inches make up The Mounting Plate with its four screw holes.

It can not be altered in the ordering process:
  • 2 forward mounting screw holes
  • 2 rear mounting screw holes

With its self leveling countertop support design it supports stone countertop overhangs with ease and security. Although the brace may be used to support any range of countertop materials, stone countertops require more support and thus benefit the most from this support system. Natural stone slabs (eg. granite) used for kitchen countertops are brittle, porous, and can break under their own weight. The finer the stone, the more brittle the bulk material, so reliable support systems are essential.

This design improves upon previous corbel and brace designs by extending the rear end of the support surface behind the fulcrum and into a base cabinet or knee wall. The Law of Levers introduces a relation between the supported mass of the overhang and the length of the Rear Pressure Plate from and past the fulcrum.

This brace takes advantage of this natural law in that longer rear ends can support heavier countertop overhangs. The countertop slab resting on the base cabinet or knee wall makes contact with the rear end of the support structure and given that the fulcrum channel is parallel to the natural stone slab will push the forward support part of the brace to fit flush against the underside of the stone overhang.

The force of the slab pushing down on the Rear Pressure Plate swings the Forward Support Plate up and into the countertop overhang. The pushing force on the Rear Pressure Plate provides the overhang support. This design takes full advantage of this force, the countertop and top support and pressure plate will remain in constant contact with the underside of the heavy stone countertop overhang.



The simple beauty of this design is that it works by taking advantage of one of the oldest laws known; The Law of the Lever and Fulcrum.
