Rated 5 out of 5Â by edcpro Bought Five of these, Great Improvement to Attic Storage
Searching the web for a way to easily store items in the attic without having to crawl all over the low ceiling space I came across this product. I initially purchased one and was so pleased with how it improved my fetching boxes and storing them in the attic that I purchased more to complete the job. I only wish that this product was available in the store, not just online. I am sure more people would be able to see that a product like this exists and surely purchase it to help with their tight storage areas. In fact, it would probably increase their storage space by providing access to those really low areas.
The access to my attic is via a drop down ladder, and I now only have to go up the access ladder and pull a cord to access a given item that is back in a low access area. it is a pleasure.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by diy101 Easier access to attic storage
Just as it is described, allows you to just push and pull storage containers you put on the movable platforms. Easy to install, all material that you need is provided. Reason for only 4 stars is
- rope provided for pulling platforms is far too short, have no idea why they would not provide at least 2 or 3 times the length. I had to use another rope I happened to have.
- I would think that they would provide at least 4 moving platforms, not just 3, it just so happens that the most forward container I have on it slides along the rails. I know you can buy additional platforms, but that is an extra cost that I think is not warranted.
- They provide this small angled metal for putting at the end of the rail so the moving platforms do not slide off, easy enough to put on, but the instructions do not show you how to put onl
Once installed it provided me with much easier access to my attic storage, I do not have to get off of the access ladder anymore. Much better than climbing into the attic with its low rafters and crawling along to get to a particular storage container and then having to get everything out of my way. I like it so much that I just ordered 3 more plus one kit that provides 3 extra platforms.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ALLEN0105 Great System but too small
I have installed 3 systems streaching the entire length of my attic. I also bought the three platform accessory. My attic ladder is in the center of attic so I can slide platforms in both directions giving me access to all platforms. If the track and platforms were larger more could be stored. The platforms are too small and can not hold enough. To do what I want will require me to install 3 more syatems at the other end of my latter opening. Great system too small.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by remodeler101 got as gift, hate it
Unlike fake exuberant reviews, this system is useless. Doesn't hold much weight, only one panel. You can simply put pipes on top of your joists and slide panels of plywood on top, with wood stops on panel edges to keep it sliding straight. Why spend so much when it also does not allow you to store anything else on the whole track length except the panel? Basically you put things at far edges of the attic and have to leave the rest empty because the track takes up the rest of the room. Very poor idea. Store things in wheeled containers near the edges if you must.
