How To Install Corbels
Yes, there is an easy way to hang Corbels. Just drill a hole into the back of the Corbel, then slip the Corbel over a large nail or screw!
This hole should be drilled into the Corbel at an angle, as illustrated here. A nail or screw should be put into the wall at the same approximate angle as this drilled hole.
We would strongly suggest your nail or screw be located in a wall stud for strength. Your local hardware store will have inexpensive stud locators available.
For hanging Corbels on brick or masonry walls, it is necessary to drill a hole into the wall at an angle, as mentioned previously. Then use one of the many anchoring devices available from your local hardware store to secure a screw in place.
If you are concerned your Corbel may move sideways at the lower end, you can use a spot of glue on the back side to hold the lower end into place.
As with any installation, it is your responsibility to assure that the anchoring is sufficient for your load.
