Hi. I purchased 4 brackets. Underside of my ceasarstone (granite) sub counter will be reinforced with steel bar. 1/4" x 3"w x >6"L. Top counter is wood live edge slab.
Question is about hole size through the *sub counter*. Concern is about cracking the stone vs bolt hole size needed for proper mounting.
1/4" stainless through bolts. Counter guy said the bolts should go through a plastic sleeve. Basically, is it recommended/okay that the sub counter bolt holes be large enough to accommodate the 1/4" bolt through a plastic sleeve, and potentially additional diameter clearance? (As opposed to a 1/4" bolt through a 1/4" hole)
Is a plastic sleeve around the bolt recommended for mounting strength? - Asked about product FB-35010
This bracket does not require any type of sleeve to go around the bolt for the installation. You can go that route if you would like to, but you would need to consult the contractor onsite for appropriate hole size. There has not been any issues of counter tops cracking with the standard installation.
