It is attractive as a glass shelf support in the bathroom or as a light "floating-ish" shelf bracket, which is why I got it. However, it has no fittings or instructions for installation, which may be awkward for inexperienced DIY-ers and I can't find anything on the website either. This is presumably a cost-cutting measure.
How to install a shelf with the REST bracket
You will need a drill, two screws (3-4 cm) and a couple of rawls. You will have to drill into the wall.
The screw on the bottom controls the shelf-grip mechanism. Undo it and apply it to the shelf, getting everything in position and tightening it up to grip the shelf. Get a level and use it to mark the wall where you wish to place it. Mark where the shelf and the supports will be with a pencil and the shelf where you have the brackets.
Take the brackets off and attach them to the wall first. This needs a screw for each, placed through the large hole in the back of the thing into a rawlplug in the wall. Once they are installed, put the shelf back and tighten the clamp-screws again. Job done.
Not that this is particularly difficult, but it is not obvious either. A little help would be appreciated, B&Q. You saved 5p, I lost 20 minutes.
