Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chantelmurda Great Organizer, Instructions Aren't Accurate
Aside from the instructions included in the box, I think this is a great organizer, I like the fact that it can be customized anyway you like it. I chose the nickel color because it goes perfectly with the gray behr paint I have on the walls.
First, the amount of screws in the bag were not accurate or as the count stated. Moving on from this, nailing the hang track into the stud, well I hit metal, in several places on several studs for that wall, this should be accounted for in the instructions. Also, the size of the hole (per the instructions) for drilling to insert the anchor toggle bolts into the dry wall was too small.
The anchors included for hanging the vertical standards on the hang track were a horrible choice. I only managed to get one nail into one anchor spot. The remaining anchors went completely through the dry wall when attempting to screw in the nail. I then had to pull the entire anchor out, drill a much wider hole so that I could use the remaining anchor toggle bolts in those spots. Not sure why the instructions suggested this method, when the toggle bolts (though they require slightly larger holes) work better. I think toggle bolts are the best option here. The anchors going through the dry wall was an immense disappointment!
This is probably personal preference, but I do not like the shoe rack. The angle at which it hangs bothers me, so I decided to purchase additional shelf brackets to place that shelf on.
The amount of times I went back and forth to Home Depot to account for incorrect/bad instructions was unprecedented. Other than this, I managed to make it through with the 5ft shelf! Will keep these things in mind for next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EC Nice looking, functional closet organizer
Fairly easy to assemble as long as you know where the studs are (I bought a stud-finder just to be sure). What's nice is its easy to re-orient as your storage needs change. And the nickel finish looks nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pam Disappointed. Not "Nickel" but Gray Vinyl
I should have read more closely. I thought Nickel meant a metal finish. I saw the price was $40 more than the white vinyl which also lead me to believe I was getting something a little more special than vinyl coated like actual nickel finish. My bad. Not sure why gray is $40 more than white?
If I had it to do over again, I'd order white for the value. I would not pay $40 more for gray.

There was a "cove" in our laundry room. My wife wanted my to put up a closet rod to hang some clothes. I purchased the closet organizer and hung it on the wall - I have more hanging space PLUS a lot of shelf storage. I needed to "adjust" the design as my space was just UNDER 6' - but it was easy to do. I used a hack saw for the heavy frame and bolt cutters to trim the shelves. Very pleased with the outcome.
Good instructions and a variety of choices for layout.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by propertyvrgnIL Time Consuming Install But Great End Result!
Not that it was particularly "difficult" to install, but I did knock off one star because it turned out to be quite time consuming. Plus, to get the most out of it, you really need to think about how you want it "designed" before getting started.
That being said, the quality of the product and end result is as hoped for, and definitely helps make better use of the closet space! I do love that it's almost fully customizable and can be built to suit your specific needs (like if you need more drawers or shelves/less rod space... shelves can be cut down to whatever sizes you need (by power tool), and more can be purchased, as well). Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase, and even with additional cost to add a drawers, I still spent much less than I would have on any other kind of "custom closet". Money well spent!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KiminFla Looks nice
We bought two sets of these for our master bedroom. The instructions were easy to follow and we even watched a video online on how to install them. We did have difficulty finding a good spot to secure it to the wall but that was because had unusual studding in the walls. Overall very pleased with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LPA Excellent choice for the space we have
Easy to install with minimal tools. Have purchased Closet Maid closet organizer in the past and have been very satisfied. Was really pleased to be able to get the nickel color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyjoe Excellent!
Picked this up today for $159 at HD. I've got a 67" wide closet so I used the recommended 5' closet setup example in the instructions. I centered the handing brackets on the wall with a 2" gap and just followed the instructions. I went ahead and bought the Cherry wood trim for the front of it and it looks fantastic. I'll be adding the cool accessories to it, like the drawers and baskets.
Overall, excellent system. I'd buy it again.
