If you want a clean countertop overhang with no expensive corbels to bang your knees on, then the Stealth Speed Brace is more than up to the job. Made of thick 3/16'' powder coated steel, a pair of braces can support up to 300 lbs. Just rout a recess into the top of the cabinet and screw it in place - it's nearly invisible once installed. Go ahead and sit on the overhang, it will not sag. Also available from Rockler, FastCap Stealth Speed Braces, Primed Gray.

Features:

  • The FastCap Stealth Speed Brace is made of solid 3/16" thick steel.
  • Screw holes are countersunk into the brace for a flush installation.

Superb Support
FastCap Stealth Speed Braces were the perfect brackets for installation of a natural edge cherry slab as a bar countertop; they provide superb cantilever support, are simple to install (flush mount) beneath the slab, and Rockler offers the best price on the market.

Will this work for granite?
Robert D on Aug 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The short answer is yes, but keep in mind three things:
1. If you are worried about the anchoring to granite, the main bolt/screw connectors (i.e. the ones taking all the load) are going into the wall frame, not the granite (the four holes in the picture). So that should not be a problem. Make sure you use the right type/size of screw or bolt. The screws to the granite are just to stabilize the installation. You may want to ask a counter installer about the type and size of a suitable screw, and the drilling method, as you do not want to cause any cracks. In my case I did not even use any screws for the granite connection, I just glued it.
2. If you are concerned about the strength, this bar is very sturdy and strong, and can carry weight of the granite. The weight is also a factor of how much projection you have. If the granite is going to project way beyond the edge of the bar (say more than a foot beyond the edge of the bar), that will increase the load on the bar a lot. You are then also at the mercy of the granite not breaking at the edge of the bar where the stress will be the highest. Also keep in mind that it is not only the granite's weight to consider, but also the load on it (are people sitting on it, for example).
3. If your surface is very long, make sure you have enough of these bars so that they are not too far from each other.
Good luck.
How large are the holes in the end of the supports? I’m told I need 1/2 in holes for my solid slab wood bar top.
Dotty M on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The actual holes in the supports are 7/32” which is just shy of 1/4” with a countersink sized for the Fastcap Powerhead #10 wood screws.
What size of countertop brace would I need for a 12 inch overhang?
P D on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depending on material of counter top a 12” should do it.
how many do i need for an 8'6" span of cabinet? how close do i put them together?
granitecounters on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm a cabinet installer...the counter top guy I work with always has me space them approximately 24 inches apart or every two feet... I would recommend no less than four of these and six if you need them to support the ends as well...not sure of your specific application...hope this helps!!!
