Blind Shelf Supports
Add some decorative flare and wonder to a room using these concealed shelf supports. They create the illusion that a shelf is floating and the lack of visible hardware supporting the shelf grants you a wider range of visual variety and options. These invisible shelf brackets are made of sturdy metal and have alloy steel coupling screws to ensure they maintain tension between the posts and the inserts in the plates. This gives you an impressive capacity of 50lbs for an 8” deep shelf that’s 34” or less long. (The support capacity is higher for shallower shelves.) If you need a longer shelf just add additional supports. Try adding some much needed storage or staging space to your living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom or office. The blind shelves include the brackets and supports you’ll need and you just need to provide the space, screws and the shelf.

I would only mount these into brick. Mortar is to soft for mounting anything other than a small picture hanger. Remember this; if its easy to drive a nail into, its easy to pull the nail out of. Use a good quality anchor into the brick. Then again realize that most bricks made today are hollow in the center, so you don't have a large amount of surface material for an anchor to bight into. Just don't put to much weight on your shelf and you should be fine.
I had to put mine in with 1 toggle bolt. One is in only stud there. Depends on how much weight on the shelf.
With a heavy toggle and washer it will support 20# or more. Get a good toggle bolt and you can mount one end into drywall just fine.
according to the technical details listed in the catalog, the hardware that attaches to the wall is 15/16" x 1 1/2". the 'supports' require a 7/16" bore hole. So that pretty much dictates requirements. for the 'look' that my client desired I constructed a 'Mitered' box w/ a top and bottom of 3/4' ply with spacers of 1/2" sandwiched between top and bottom. this thickness hides the hardware attached to the wall (slight mortise is necessary so that shelf will fit flush to the wall). the front and 2 end edges were then enclosed w/ a 2" mitered strip to give a clean look. the posts fit in the opening between the top and bottom 3/4" ply. because of the weight of this design, the shelf depth was a little less than 8". I didn't want to push the limitations. so that was how I did it. client was satisfied.
Secondly , are both supports level off the wall ?
Third , are your holes drilled straight ...a slight angle would do this also .
I’ve used these a lot with great success. I hope my thoughts can help you solve your dilemma.
