I've been trying to remove this support bracket so I can install a closet rod instead, but can't seem to find out how to do so. Can someone help me out please? Thanks!

This is a thread-cam locking shelf support. You can undo it by turning the screw a quarter turn counter clockwise, then lifting up on the shelf.

It looks like the locking cam is missing. You will have to seperate the parts and then you should be abke to slip a thin flathead screwdriver below the mechanism (from the side). The cam lock is a press fit into the hole so it will resist some but jf you are careful and take your time you will be able to get this out.
