Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaintenanceMan Good value
I use this product at work for storage in various rooms and offices. The double track is better because the shelves don't move sideways like they can with the single track version and my colleagues can set things up just as they want them. The fact that it's a metal bar that spreads the load over sheet rock makes the whole structure very strong but screws should be placed into studs rather than using wall anchors.
As a sidenote I prefer the "Torx" (Star) type screws and driver bits because they are a lot less likely to slip or push back at you than "Philips" (Sorry Philips) and I suggest you go at least 2 1/2 inches on the screws and not less than 2 inches for household use. Also one track per stud and if you have to use wall anchors do so at the ends of the shelves where there should be less weight.
Using this kind of stuff is my job so I hope you appreciate the review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenneth Provides great versatility for closet shelving
I've used several different types of shelving brackets, but for your basic closet shelving this provides some of the best versatility without sacrificing sturdiness and durability. The shelf brackets can be easily adjusted up or downward on the shelftrack simply by removing the shelf and adjusting the bracket either up or downward to wherever you need it to be. As long as the shelftrack is properly and securely installed you can virtually hang any type of clothing on the shelves without worry of too much weight. Just make sure you keep the shelftracks vertically short spaced to give you maximum support. Too far apart and you risk potential sagging in the middle. If you want added shelf support you can sometimes use the front shelving brackets but you will give up some of the adjustability since these brackets typically aren't as easily removable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ysabeau Easy to put up and very solid
I was very iffy about using this system in my closet because I'd had issues with the shelves and clothes rods falling down. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I combined these with the ClosetMaid Selectives to triple the storage space in my closet.
They were very easy to install and I highly recommend them to anyone. I didn't buy a "kit" because I didn't need all the extras so I bought the pieces separately. The guy at Home Depot showed me how they were supposed to go together and it worked wonderfuly! An easy, 1-person project. Cleaning out the closet to put this in was harder than putting in the shelf system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Casey Maximum length and easy to cut to size
I bought the longest rail available (RubberMaid's longest is 80" I think) and cut it in several pieces to make two short wall projects. I used a handheld electric saw, but a hacksaw also works. If you have to cut short of the next screw hole, it's not too hard to punch one out with your drill where you need it. By buying only one wallrail, I got just the lengths I needed and saved money not buying precut ones that only come in limited lengths.
This way of doing it doesn't give you the hook at the top of the rail to attach to a hang rail, but I've found that they're not needed if you drop your first shelf at least six inches below the wall rail. Another saving!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClosetGuy Top Quality Made in USA Shelving Brackets
I have used the Lowes store brand and Rubbermaid wire shelving systems, but I have come back to ClosetMaid as the best. The brackets are easy to attach to the wall and are very well made... in the USA is a huge plus for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karl Used for shoe rack... works great.
Carefully measure and test the location before securing if using with the shoe rack mounts since they clip to the wires on the shelf.

These shelf brackets closely resemble those of competitors, which speaks to the functionality of the ClosetMaid system. There is nothing particularly better or worse about this brand than others I have seen. Used in conjunction with the rest of the ClosetMaid storage components, they make designing and installing a storage solution simple and flexible. The number of choices in length is good.
