Floating Vanity Brackets won't adjust


Hello,

I am in the middle of installing a floating vanity.

I added blocking studs and the metal cleat/bracket that comes with the vanity is on the wall already.

I go to put the vanity on the wall and one of the brackets on the vanity does not extend far enough to grab the wall bracket. I go to use the screw adjustments and there is no change in distance. The other screw adjustable bracket is fine.

Here is the specs on the vanity I have, http://www.kubebath.com/download/S-1200S-specs.pdf.

Is there some magic way to get those screw adjustable brackets to work?

Re: Floating Vanity Brackets won't adjust


The link is no help. Doesn't show the bracket itself. Your wall may not be flat, tile thickness slightly different, the cabinet is not flat against the wall (try lifting the cabinet or temp support so it is floating), etc, so if the adjustments are in increments of specific holes, two brackets may not match up. Also try loosening the wall screw so the bracket is somewhat loose and tighten back up later. One side works because single hinge is more or less infinitely adjustable. Careful with wall screws so you don't strip the wood fiber.
Try fitting the brackets loosely and if bolts, one side bolt may be slightly off but as long as it tightens with additional washers...
Maybe you can use small clamp instead of the bolt.
Or you can drill new holes or enlarge the hole. Use the drill bit sideways. Or you may have to cut the bracket to make elongated slot - as long as it doesn't weaken the bracket metal.
If there's room, easier may be to clamp the brackets together, drill smaller holes through both, and use a screw to hold them.
