floating shelf harware. HELP

I am looking to mount floating shelves in my rec room, but I cannot find the bracket that mounts to wall. It is a simple design. Just a flat bar with holes for screws to mount with 2 rods that stick out. Shelf slides over rods and covers mount brackets. I can find them on the internet, but I cannot find a place to buy them without having to buy thousands of pieces. Where can I buy this bracket? Any help would be great. THANKS TIM

I have bought shelves from ikea in the past with this type of bracket. I believe it was the lack shelf? They come complete with the type of mounting bracket you are describing. perhaps you could buy them to use the mounting bracket alone. If I remember correctly the price was very reasonable.

I just did a quick Google search and found many possibilities with the search string "Floating Shelf Brackets". Here is Rockler's $20 option for supporting up to 34" of shelf. You could go longer with additional brackets. Just make sure you anchor the brackets solidly and don't exceed the loads the brackets are designed to hold.


Ikea has such things too but a store is not at all convenient to me and navigating their order pulling and shipping policies to have a store employee deal with it is not worth it for me.

Just got blitzed by Bed Bath & Beyond. Their current flyer advertises some sort of floating shelf system. I suspect it is shelving for decorative items and of the type where there is a slotted plate on the shelf over a cavity. It all goes over an anchored screw head.
