    I believe the A34 uses #8 screws, if I understand the website specs correctly.

    However it does not specify how many screws you need on the bracket, do I need to install all 8 screws to meet the required load specs or is there 8 options, and what is the minimun number of screws?

    In the load table in the link below this article it specifies the fasteners. A34 use 8-8dx1-1/2. The first 8 means you need 8 fasteners, 4 on each face. 8d is a nail size, which is usually 2.5″ long, but the 1-1/2 means you only need 1.5″ long 8d nails.
