BackIt Application Image

BackIt® provides a solid backing solution to support handrails, wall-mounted shelving, and other equipment. Installation is greatly simplified through a simple screw connection to the stud flange, delivering a flexibility for use in 12”, 16”, and 24” stud spacing. Shelf tabs hold a variety of wood backing sizes and shapes, including 1” x 6”, 2” x 4”, and 2” x 6”, in place during installation. BackIt exceeds code-required allowable load resistance of 250lbs in the vertical and horizontal directions.
