Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by krsh409 Terrible Customer Service
I bought 9 of these and the screws and caps to hold the box onto the railing are very tiny and I lost a few during installation. I called the company that makes these - CobraCo - and asked to buy some additional screws and caps but they said I would have to buy the screws along with the brackets (which I didn't need). Hardware stores do not carry these screws and caps and CobraCo told me they manufacture the screws and caps themselves but refused to sell me additional screws and caps! I asked to speak to a manager but the "Customer Service" rep would not put me through. She put me on hold and then several minutes later came back and told me again that I'd have to buy the screws and caps along with the brackets. This is terrible Customer Service and therefore I would not buy any products by this manufacturer again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Abcd Not sturdy enough for full 36" planters
Maybe if you put one of the smaller planters in this bracket it would work but I bought three of these to go with the three 36" planters I also bought at the same time. Mounted them up and filled my planters but when I went to put the 36" planters in these brackets, the weight of them caused these brackets to bend and buckle. They are pretty much unusable for me right now. I'm guessing that if I used a smaller planter then it wouldn't be too heavy but if it claims to be usable with 36" planters, that should mean it can handle the weight of a 36" planter with soil in it. I guess if it was empty it would work but what's the point in that?
Still bummed I lost the receipt because now I'm just gonna go back and build my own shelf or bracket for the planters and I'm out a decent bit of money on these flimsy things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lauren sturdy build
This holder is very sturdy. I ordered 3 of them for my pennington window boxes (the 30inch), not realizing that they are not expandable and contractable. I didn't realize that only a few of the cobraco holders are expandable/contractable, the others are set at the width listed. Because of this fact, I sent the holders back and instead ordered the cobraco adjustable and expandable holders. When I recieved the new adjustable expandable holders, I instantly regretted sending my first order back. The expandable holders are not as well built at all, and they are not as deep either. My window boxes would not even fit in them. I am going to send them back and reorder these. Even though they are larger than i need, I don't mind having a little extra space on each side. I wish I would have kept them from the beginning!
