Sumo Floating Shelf & Bracket

When it comes to strong wall shelves, the Sumo is the strongest on the block. Living up to its name, it can support up to 88 lbs when mounted with drywall anchors or into a stud. Some wall shelves are more about their looks, and some are about getting the job done. The Sumo Shelf does the latter; it works hard for you. Books, DVDs, electronics, exotic vases--those are the types of things you can trust to your Sumo shelf.

What's to Like:

You can order these babies in sizes between 18" and 45" inches wide, making them perfect for practically anything; from books and DVDs to record players, televisions, and other entertainment equipment.

What's Not to Like:

They aren't as seamless as some other floating shelves - the base is always visible, if not bold.

Bottom Line:

The Sumo Shelf is a simple, effective, and adaptable wall shelf that can answer many different needs.

With a 16" depth, the Sumo is the deepest wall shelf on our website. Rated to hold up to 88 lbs., it's also the strongest. Use it to hold your DVD player, gaming system or cable box. Purchase in multiples and use in tiers to create a wall of storage and organization. There's almost nothing that this shelf can't do. Socks--it can't change your socks.

Dimensions:
  • 18" w x 12" d x 1" think
  • 18" w x 16" d x 1" thick
  • 32" w x 12" d x 1" thick
  • 45" w x 12" d x 1" thick
Weight Holding Capacity:

Supports up to 88 lbs. when properly installed

Extremely Happy with this product

The shelving units are nice looking, sturdy and hold weight well, we decided to test them with our heavier cook/dishware and it holds up well.

I was in search of some sturdy floating shelves. These by far seemed to be able to hold the most weight. They are sturdy. My issue with these shelves is that
1. They're expensive
2. The anchors did not work well. You really have to get these shelves into studs, but with where the drill holes are in the metal holding device it is not easy to get the shelf into more than one stud, as long as you don't mind your shelf not necessarily hanging where you would like it to. At first I just used the anchors in the drywall. They all popped into the wall and the shelf hung there strangely. At this point I had to start from scratch, which involved me using my own screws and anchors that were slightly smaller but did not pop into the drywall.
3. Otherwise this is very easy and basic to install. No guessing here.
4. I like that you can trade out the black shelf for a white one should your decor ever change. Just wish they had more color options.
5. These shelves are surprisingly large and deep. This made it difficult to find good placement where no one would walk into the shelf.
6. While I'm glad for how sturdy they are, I'm not sure I would buy them again.

Perfect for heavy home theater equipment

By

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

I scoured the internet to find a good "floating shelf" that can hold my Klipsch RP-450C center channel that weighs about 35 pounds, and finally landed at SmartFurniture to find my perfect match.

It was easy to install, I just had to find two good studs, that the bracket could rest on, and bingo, it was done !

I love the way it sits, and can't be happier.

Service and delivery comments:

The delivery was quick, and order process was fast. It was my first ever purchase with them, and now am convinced that they deliver quality stuff !!

The shelf is just the right size to stack a cable box on top a DVD player. I recently mounted my flat screen tv on the wall and was looking for a component shelf the would not look bulky.

These were very easy to install, and they look great! I would recommend using your own anchors, or bolting straight to the wall studs though. You will not regret buying these shelves as they are quite sturdy and have a nice modern look.

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

These shelves are very sturdy, although the drywall anchors are not to be trusted as they spin around and grind up the drywall creating a bigger hole. It would be best to mount it directly to the wall studs. Other than that, I didn't have any trouble with these and they are holding up very well with about 50lbs of books on them!

Poor mounting equipment

By 

from Streetsboro, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

The shelf and wall bracket are both nice quality, the included drywall anchors are not. Unfortunately I didn't discover their shortfall until after I had already installed them into my wall. The anchors don't have a collar to prevent them from pushing through the drywall or proper design to stop them from spinning when attempting to install the screw. I was able to attach 2 screws into studs which proved sufficient strength for my needs. The other screws left nothing more than rather large holes in my wall. At this price this is an unexceptable fault.

Best shelf on the market!

By

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

The quality of this shelf is excellent and it looks great. The shelf is very light and has a fine finish. The metal bracket looks great too and has the same fine finish. The system appears to be very sturdy. Unfortunately, I had trouble with the wall anchors. The screws look way too big, even for a stud. When I tried to tighten the screw into the wall anchor, instead of expanding the anchor, it just got super tight until the wall anchor spun, making it useless. I had to substitute a different, better type of wall anchor. Assuming my attempt was correctly done, I recommend that you consider an system that has been reliable for you rather than use the hardware provided. That being said, I am super pleased with the customer service and the company in general, so 5 stars for you!

(if you can hang it) is mostly great

By

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

Realize that while I gave this puppy 4 stars, it was not without its problems, some of which were self-inflicted, but some of which were due, imho, to Smart Furniture. Either way, for 5 times the price of your commonly-known big-box-affordable Swedish-store floating shelf, it ought to be at least 4 star, eh?

Soo

1. DO NOT USE THE ANCHORS THAT COME WITH THIS BRACKET (as of 9/2014). GET SERIOUSLY BETTER ONES AT A HARDWARE STORE BEFORE BEGINNING. Or ask Smart Furniture to send you at least 77 lb ones with your order. Which you really ought not to have to ask for. If they don't have those, tell them they ought to.
2. I warned you. Probably a good idea to make sure about the anchors.
3. You'll be sorry if you don't.
4. The aluminum shelf bracket itself is kick-butt, but, it could use more pre-drilled holes for potential studs. The instructions recommend hanging the shelf on at least one stud, but I decided to drill an additional hole through the metal bracket so I could hang it on two studs. For this I bought a drill bit specifcially for metal, and a 'countersink' beveling bit, which ran me about twenty bucks for both.
5. The plastic endcaps that are on each end of the bracket may warp a bit if your wall is not totally flat. I don't have a problem with this, but maybe a different solution for the endcaps would be better, or just rounding the metal softly instead of any endcaps at all?

Despite what I just said above, there's probably not a better shelf with this kind of free-floating form factor (meaning, no L-shaped brackets, nor vertical-slotted-bracket types) that will also hold a decent amount of weight safely.

I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT FOR MY KITCHEN TO USE FOR MY NEWBORN BABY SUPPLIES. I INSTALLED IT WITH THE HARDWARE IT CAME WITH AND SOME LIQUID NAILS, JUST TO BE SAFE. IT TOOK ME LESS THAN 10 MINUTES AND IT IS HOLDING UP GREAT. THE BLACK SHELF MATCHES MY BLACK GRANITE COUNTER TOPS AND THE ALUMINUM BRACKET LOOKS GREAT WITH MY STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES. I AM GOING TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE FOR LIVING ROOM FOR UNDER MY TV. I WAS SKEPTICAL AT FIRST WHEN I SAW IT BUT AFTER INSTALL IT REALLY DOES HOLD THE WIEGHT IT CLAIMS. GREAT PRODUCT.

Elegant and Sturdy

By

Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

I needed a components shelf for a wall mounted TV. I did not want it to look like a rack, nor did I want it to stand on the floor. All this, and I needed it to be at least 12" deep and be capable of supporting the weight of a DVR, PS3, and some other smaller items. This product was exactly what I was looking for. I used my own drywall anchors to mount it, as the ones provided are for brick or masonry. It works perfectly for me, and looks great. Since I installed it on dry wall, I will not load it with more than 20 or 30 pounds, which suits me fine. The weakest link for me would be the dry was anchors. For a more secure installation, I would drill additional holes to secure to framing studs. A Penetration for cabling would have been great.

              I bought the sumo shelf after reading the reviews and needed it to hold up my flat screen tv and dvd player. I must say that it looks great and is holding up so far! The only issue i had was putting in the anchors. I would personally buy your own anchors that hold up the weight you need. The ones that come with it did not work well and left a hole in my wall. The other reason I'm not giving it full stars is because of the price. Once you pay for shipping and handling it seems a little high for just one shelf. Otherwise, the shelf looks great and I am happy I bought it.

                    Comments about Dolle Sumo Shelf:

                    We use the shelf to hold a cable box mounted above our TV.

                    Pros:

                    I was looking for a "floating" shelf deeper than 10 inches. While the mounting is not as concealed as the floating type, this was a compromise that gave me the shelf depth I needed with minimally visible brackets.

                    Cons:

                    1. Price was pretty high

                    2. Installation was made difficult by the very poor screw anchors. I used the recommended size drill to insert them into the drywall. When inserted into the wall, the additional pressure on the screw while tightening caused the anchors to push all the way into the wall. By the time I got them out of the wall, the holes were so large that the original anchors could not be used. Fortunately, I had some better anchors as replacements, but the size of the holes that were drilled for the ones that were provided meant that I had to use much bigger ones than should have been needed.

                        The bracket attaches to the wall in three places as shown in picture 4 of 6 on the product page. You are welcome to drill your own holes in the bracket to hit a stud or two if the holes don't line up.

                        The Sumo Shelf Bracket has only 2 holes in the 18" length. Since it is just extruded aluminum you can drill as many as you like. The 2 holes are not from center but rather the center of the holes are 9.75" from each other.

                        While this is not something we recommend, obvious reasons aside, the bracket has end caps on the finished ends. If the shelf is longer than the bracket, you couldn't use these finish caps.

                        The Sumo Shelf includes mounting hardware for drywall or for attaching to wood studs in the wall, but it does not include hardware for mounting to concrete block. You would need to purchase masonry screws, and please note that the mount will not be flush to the surface since concrete block does not have a smooth surface.

                        A:

                        In the bag of tools with the bracket there is a strip of 2 sided little pieces – very thin. The strip has 4 separate pieces on it cut about ½” wide and ¾” long. If these are applied to the top edge of the shelf where the shelf sits in the bracket, (or the edge of the bracket where the shelf sits) it helps reduce some of that leverage applied and therefore also any forward leaning. You only use these if you need them, they are not necessary if your shelf is level.

                        I didn't use them. The best way I found to mount it is to go to a hardware store and buy mollies with machine head screws about 3 in long and the same diameter as the screws that came with it.

                        A:

                        You are correct, studs are typically placed 16" on center, but sometimes also at 12" (for earthquake rattled California) or 24" (when 2x6's are used instead of 2x4's). You will be perfectly fine mounting the two screws into studs and the others with drywall anchors to support the shelf. Also, you are free to drill extra holes in the extruded aluminum bracket to best suit your mounting needs. Most likely not necessary given the weight you plan to put on the shelf, but an option nonetheless.
