In regards to the question about length, many IKEA items don't fit perfectly into US standards for obvious reasons (picture frames are other pet peeve). I have one of these spanning 48", i.e. from 16" stud to 16" stud. If this is important to you, there is about 3/4" or so on either side to play with within the BJARNUM bracket--just make sure to brace the shelf so it doesn't slide and fall! The folded cardboard ends of the JARPEN box worked perfectly as bumpers inside of the brackets.

Why only 46 7/8" long? Doesnt fit on 16" studs.Most home walls are built on 16" studs. I'd you want to attach both end brackets on studs the shelf is an inch short. Can any explain why ikea shelves are about 1" short? Otherwise these shelves would be fine. But the length is a deal breaker. Am I missing something?
The bracket covers the edge of the shelf so you can cut the shelf without the cut edge showing. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/ekby-jarpen-ekby-bjarnum-wall-shelf__0184584_PE336271_S4.JPGEKBY JÄRPEN / EKBY BJÄRNUM Wall shelf, birch veneer, aluminumhttp://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S19929645/199.296.45IKEA$24.99
