These lightweight brackets are made from 0.8mm-thick aluminum and are specifically designed to work with Sharp?s analog GP2Y0A02, GP2Y0A21, and GP2Y0A41 distance sensors. Three versions are available: compact perpendicular and parallel versions, and a slightly larger but more versatile multi-option version that allows for mounting the sensor in either orientation along with greater flexibility in sensor placement relative to the mounting surface.
The brackets are strong enough to hold their default 90° bend, but they can be bent by hand to different angles if the application calls for it.
Example of the Bracket for Sharp GP2Y0A02, GP2Y0A21, and GP2Y0A41 Distance Sensor ? Perpendicular bent to a different angle.
The brackets are sold in pairs, and four M3×5mm screws and nuts are included (two for each bracket) for securing the sensors to the brackets. The other side of each bracket has mounting options intended for use with #4 or M3 screws.

This compact version of the bracket allows for the sensor to be mounted in a tall and slender perpendicular orientation. For a slightly more compact solution, the sensor can also be mounted on the inside of the L-shaped bracket.
