Breckenridge Mantel Shelf Installation

You have the option of displaying your shelf with corbels (Option 1), or shelf alone (Option 2).
Breckenridge Corbel Options
This mantel shelf comes with optional corbels. If you decide to use the corbels, continue reading. If you choose not to use them, please proceed to Installation Using the Included Mounting Board.

Installing the Corbels

Hardware:
2- Corbels w/ pre threaded inserts
4- Hex Bolts
4- Washers
1- Hex Tool

Step 1 - Your shelf has 4 wooden nuts placed in the bottom of the beam. Turn the shelf upside down and place it onto a soft surface and tap out the wood nuts using a flat head screw driver and hammer (or a similar method). You will be left with 2 holes on each end of the shelf.
Step 2 - Place the included washers onto the bolts.
Step 3 - With the shelf still upside down, line up the pre threaded inserts of the corbels with the holes in the bottom of the beam.
Step 4 - Insert the bolts through the holes in the bottom of the shelf and hand tighten into the threaded inserts. Use the hex tool for final tightening before installation.

Installation Using the Included Mounting Board

Step 1 - With the shelf upside down on a soft surface, hold the mounting board in position on the mantel shelf. Measure from the bottom of the shelf to the bottom of the mounting board - Make note of this measurement, as you will use it in one moment.

Place the shelf on the wall above your fireplace or on the wall at the desired height. Level the shelf and draw a line on the wall along the bottom of the shelf. Remove the shelf and measure up the distance between the bottom of the shelf and mounting board that you noted earlier. Mark the line at several points to ensure a level mount.
Step 2 - Line up the bottom of the mounting board with this new line and attach the mounting board to the wall in this position. Make sure the mounting board is level. If you are mounting the board on a standard drywall over stud construction, make sure you screw the mounting board into the wood studs (2x4's) for strength. When attaching the shelf to a brick surface you must use a masonry lag bolt. Drill three holes in the mortar joints of the brick in the desired position. Insert lag and attach mounting board with a bolt. Make sure the mounting board is secure to the wall as shown in Fig. 1.

Options for Auburn Shelf
Step 3 - Install shelf onto the mounting board and slide down until the shelf is tight against the wall. See Fig. 2. Once mounted, if the shelf doesn't seem to fit snugly to the wall, you may put a small shim of paper, cardboard, etc., to fill the gap where the 2 halves of the mounting board meet.

Options for Auburn Shelf

**The mounting board is only a suggested method. Your installer may also have additional methods for mounting your mantel or shelf. We suggest that pilot holes be drilled prior to inserting the appropriate hardware for final installation on the wall surface.

**Wood and MDF mantels are considered combustible materials. Heat clearances must be adhered to. Before installing, check your local building codes and the manufacturer's instructions for your specific fireplace insert or stove.
