Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1234A One of the best purchases i ever made
I love, love love this closet organizer. I turned one of my bedrooms into a walk in closet and my husband who is no handyman was able to quickly and easily install this. I get so many complliments on this product. It looks better than some of the professionally installed and I saved a ton of money by installing it ourselves

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmac207 Nice and easy!
I have a 5 ft by 5 ft walk in closet so I had to decide how to split this kit up between the two sides. I had a lot of fun "designing" my closet. I added the 4 drawer kit which holds ALL of my t-shirts, undies, socks (I have a lot of socks!) and summer shorts. I did not use the shoe shelf because I keep mine in clear plastic boxes - so I have them stacked on the shelves at eye level. It's so much better than stacked on the floor!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wes1930 Excellent product for the home handyman
I used the product throughout the whole house. Two 7-10' units were installed in the master closet. It is very versatile and can be modified to personal taste and needs very easily. My only problem was that the plastic anchors vs. the screw diameter are a mismatch. Before the screws would go all the way into the anchor the anchor would spin in the wall and would have to be removed and replaced with a larger anchor. I solved the problem by purchasing the next smaller diameter screws from the hardware.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mimmer04 Very versatile. Straightforward installation. Highly recommend.
The Closetmaid Wire Shelf Track Closet system is great! The kit is very versatile. I did some extensive planning before installing my closet and I studied the instructions in depth. With my pre-planning, I found that installation went very smoothly. I will say that I had to make some adjustments on the fly to ensure that at least one of the holes in each hang track lined up with a stud, but otherwise the process was straightforward and fairly intuitive. I will echo the sentiment of other reviews that the plastic anchors included with the kit are too small for the screws included. Do yourself a favor and buy larger anchors when you are at the store, so you don't have to make a return trip like I did.

For the price this closet organizer is great. My husband put it up with minimal difficulty and it fits our closet perfectly. Even though our closet is roughly 11' and this is up to 10', it still fit perectly. I love it!!!!!!!!!! The only thing ladies is the shoe rack is a little difficult for heels, however if you give it enough room you can store your heels underneath the rack and your flats on it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tmanno1 Very pleased with this kit, plus a few tips
I installed one system in my closet yesterday, and will be adding one more to the same closet in the next week. It is nice to be able to customize the layout. I am very satisfied with the purchase, but I had to do some improvising to make it work in my condo.
A few tips for other buyers:
I live in a condo, with concrete walls behind the drywall. I only have 0.75" behind the drywall, so the 3-4" bolts and toggles that came with the kit would not work. I used large-size Pop Toggles instead, which are about 1.25" total in length, and these seemed to work well (I'll report back if everything falls off the wall!).
BIG tip - I have a level that has a magnetic strip along one side. This was AWESOME to just stick on the side of the standards (the vertical bars) while I was fastening them to the wall. I also used it when I first installed the top track, I just put the level on top and it didn't move. This seriously made installation much easier, especially because I did everything myself.
Another tip - you'll need a pretty hefty hacksaw to cut the pieces down to size. You may be able to get away with NOT having to do this, but I wanted to really maximize my usage of the system. My closet width is 8.5'. The instructions have sample layouts for even 7', 8', 9' and 10' closet widths. ClosetMaid recommends to not use one of the tracks for the 8' closet, but wanting to maximize everything, I cut one of the tracks down so I had track along the entire length of my closet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aggeek78 Easy to install
I have invested a lot of money in XXXX closet systems over the years and had no intention of leaving it in my house when I sell it. I purchased this to replace the XXXX system in my walk-in closet. The holes in the hang-track lined up perfectly with the existing holes, so it went up quickly. Overall, it looks good so the prospective buyers should like it.
One concern: I removed some Closetmaid shelves from this house 12 years ago (left by previous owner) because the shelves felt sticky and I couldn't clean them to get rid of that feeling. The vinyl coating on the new stuff feels fine, but I have no faith that it will stay this way. And no, I don't go around touching the shelves all the time, but every time I did touch it I felt like I had to wash my hands immediately, Ick. But for the price, it's a good deal.

This system was almost perfect for the set up I wanted, had to purchase a few additional brackets. Wish it had a couple more of the extender connectors. Otherwise, great. Installed easy and in one afternoon.
