    Center to center bottom measurement for the screw holes is 1- 3/16"
  • Q Is it 75lb for each bracket?

    A Yes, when installed correctly on a solid wall.
  • Q For FSB6,Can I use this to support an acacia slab? - 72x18x2

    A
    I think that an 18" deep shelf supported by hidden shelf rods that are at the maximum 8" deep is asking for trouble. I wouldn't install a shelf any deeper than 12".
    I would look for another way to support it entirely , or with traditional shelf brackets. If the shelf is within 3 ft. or so from the ceiling, you could always hang the two outside opposite corners with a small piece of 1/4" x 36" all-thread with a washer and nut under the shelf and then the opposite up in the ceiling with an appropriate 1 x4 block in the ceiling space; strong enough to support you proposed weight. then just three of your hidden brackets at the wall. No brackets showing , or maybe you have tile on the wall, and don't want to mount anything on the tile. 
  • Q Can this item be bent? I have pre-existing raised garden beds with angles other than 90 degrees.

    A
    From my experience putting it together, there is some flexibility for about 1/4" of bend in case your corners are not quite square, but not more than that. These are very sturdy and very rigid.
