It seems that others had a hard time hanging this product... I didn't, I was all by myself and it didn't take me all that long at all, however I think it would have been better if I had the right tools in the first place. I just moved in to a new house and as a female that had lived with her dad... I just ended up borrowing his tools. The instructions were very simple, I think they should have included at least the drill bit size that you need for the wall. I ended up using a bit that was too small at first (I didn't want to make the holes too large, so it would fall). However after trying to adjust the size of the hole so that the screw anchor could be gently hammered in the wall, I found that it was too large (thankfully I have learned from past exp. that you complete one at a time to make sure it is right before filling your wall full of useless holes). After drilling the right size holes and putting the screw anchors in, I started screwing the brace/hanger in the wall, I found that the hanger had gotten bent ever so slightly. I thought about taking it down and trying to straighten it, but I thought my "fixing" it would only cause more damage in the end so I pressed on. I hung the shelf, it did take a couple of tries, but it was not difficult at all... I placed my level on it, and it was nice and even side to side, but from wall to front it was not level at all... I made some shimmies (is that the right word?) to go behind/under the shelf to even it out. I use the shelf every day as side table for my chaise and it is sturdy and (now) even. I like this product and I wouldn't mind buying another if I needed it, just make sure that you know that things don't always come perfect, and you might make a few mistakes along the way, as long as you are well equipped to deal with them, its all good.
