Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chuck Sturdy shelving
I recently purchased four of these shelves for my basement. Assembly was a bit cumbersome with only one person, especially the top two shelves. Watch out for pinch points! (I learned this the hard way) The shelves are made out of a low quality, beaver-board material that may or may not be problematic over time. Once assembled, though, the shelves are incredibly sturdy and provide a lot of storage space. For the moderate cost, these are nice shelves that should provide many years of use. I do recommend these shelves... Just have a second set of hands around to assist with the assembly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by katekate Ridiculous unit to assemble
The brackets (couplers) for the shelves must be hammered on and are easily bent out of shape. One of the four did not appear to fit the legs at all and three had to be custom fit (good thing we have a shop and lots of tools). Beware the homeowner looking for a quick and easily assembled unit. This is not the one. And overpriced at that - cheap particle board and all. Will never buy a unit like this again. (And note the warning inside the box: "Do not return to store"… etcetera. So much for that.

Strong and sturdy. I am not a handyman - so assembly was a bit tricky when stacking the upper level, but I got it. It easily holds all my garage tools/storage items.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChuckM Nice shelving unit for storage or garage
I bought two of these with intentions of clearing up some space in my garage. The units are actually pretty easy to put together but I do recommend having a mallet to dead low hammer as it will help seat the cross beams. The shelves work well and what's nice is that you can set each shelf at its own height. You can actually build two stands from one kit if you want to keep them at waist height or one nice six foot tower. It's pretty easy to tear down too if you wanted to move to a different home. I recommend these for garages or covered patios. For stuff out in the elements, I'd say go with thicker metal. Overall, I'm pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanIel Good Value...sturdy and easy to assemble
I dont know about 4000 lbs but it does hold all the paint cans and other assorted containers that I had stacked in the garage. It took maybe 30-40 minutes to assemble completely,just make sure you have a mallet or a hammer to tap connections in place. The frame feels solid, so do the boards but not as solid. They're made of mdf with some kind of coating. At some point I'll probably make some new ones out of plywood. Other that that its a good value for the price. WAY nicer than alot of the plastic shelf units out there. One last thing, stack the heavy stuff towards the bottom and the lighter stuff towards the top just as a safety precaution.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Digger Wonderful for storage, especially with adjustable shelves
Moves into a house that lacked shelf storage in the basement. These shelves served our
needs perfectly. Easy to assemble and can handle single items and boxes. Adjustable shelves
a plus. Bought three. Will buy more if the need arises.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walker1847 Great, sturdy shelf for garage!
After assembling 10 of these in my garage, I can say that I'm now an expert on assembly of them. They go together very easily as long as you have a heavy rubber mallet to smack the pieces into place. The only tricky part is the 4 connector pieces for the vertical elements. But with care, they too assemble just fine. Can't speak to how well they will last, but I expect them to hold up to their promise of very heavy weight bearing capacity. I would buy more if I had space. My old plastic ones always ended up breaking with time and weight.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LiquidCarney Decent product
2 shelves were damaged out of the box (I picked them up at the store so it was not a shipping issue). The way the top half connects to the lower half of the rack is weak at best. I wouldn't dare put more than 100lbs on the upper half (claims to be able to support 4000 which is an obvious joke). The shelving is made of cheap particle board... like really cheap and soft. Check out the display at the store and verify for yourself. The rack is not all bad despite how my review reads. My wife is using the shelf for some light weight photography supplies decorations ect. so this will work fine for her needs. Just be aware that this is far from heavy duty despite what the word "commercial" in the title may imply. If your looking for shelving for the garage or workshop I would suggest buying something else. This shelving unit is 1 step above plastic shelving.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fuzz Excellent value for the money, lives up to it's description
I own both this and the larger 48"W x 72"H x 24"D version. I wrote a longer review for the larger shelf, so I'll summarize here, since both this and it's larger sibling are pretty much identical in quality and materials.
- Made in the USA.
- Steel is well formed and powder coated.
- Assembly is quick and intuitive.
- Use a rubber mallet for placing the shelf supports
- Use a hammer to place the frame couplers
- Racking is almost non-existent once assembled.
- Shelving material is thin, 3/8" Spray Laminated Particle Board
Overall, this will be a sturdy, solid addition to your garage or utility room storage plan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeEr Solid Performance
Perfect for the garage. These shelves are sized perfectly and the 18" depth stands out of the way, while loading all that it has to to clean up the garage. Strength is simply NOT an issue. The particle-board bases are held in a ledge along the entire edge of each shelf. Even with multiple one-gallon paint cans it has held up well.
Watch yourself during installation however. The problem is that the assembly is SO SIMPLE that you stop paying attention. Be careful to keep the rails in the correct orientation as you assemble. Beating them back apart might be time consuming and annoyingly embarrassing... had I done that (blush).

These are a great buy and very easy to assemble. My wife and I put two sets together in about an hour. Good adjustment in the ability to set the shelves at different heights to allow you to build for your needs. Definitely recommend!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark adequate but not great
Though it did not appear to be upon opening, the pieces were, or are, easily warped. connecting the two sections (upper-lower) is a no brainer, but to achieve this you must hammer the connector... not a good thing nor an easy thing. the connector is easily bent or marred, making it difficult to mend/bend back into position. NO provision is made to place this on rollers, which would be nice if you need to move this unit around your work area. I have put four of these together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GargeRat Not worth the money
Frame did not stay together to move. Shelves are all different densities which will mean some will fatigue before others. I have put together other brands and this is by far the worst ever. As for holding 4000 pounds!?? Maybe the frame would take it if not flexed at all, no way any shelve will. Doubt it would hold 1500. Anyway go with husky or anything else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cah91 Do not buy
I needed a basic shelf, and this seemed to fit the bill. At my local HD it was set up and I looked at it (not in too much detail, which I should have). I bought it and brought it home. The idea of these and similar shelving units is that you the long corner pieces come in two parts which get connected together. For this unit this gets done with connectors which are supposed to slide over the long pieces. These connectors (1) do not slide over and (2) are incredibly flimsy. In addition, the shelves are thin particle board. After fighting with the connectors for a while I realized that this was really poor quality. I returned the whole unit and got something else (one of these wire rack shelves, which are not bad - this is the same idea, but the corner pieces screw together - a much more elegant construction model). I would stay away from these shelving units

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobb Made in USA, Made in China quality
I buy USA made whenever possible which is why I purchased this unit. While the box was undamaged, the contents were. All the metal pieces and wood shelves just sit in the box and move around. There is literally NO packaging material inside to protect anything. Chunks are missing out of my shelves and the metal rails are scratched up.
Also, dont plan on ever moving this unless you disassemble it completely. Everything is held together by gravity so if you move it, it falls apart. Im pretty disappointed overall considering the price. I expected more

Easy to carry, assemble, and arrange. I like that you have the option for a 5 shelve tier or 2 separate units, one with two shelves and the other has three. Adjustable height is great and provides an opportunity to use the space under the bottom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sgp1996 Solid, but not perfect for basic shelving needs
This was an improvement over a lighter weight shelf of the same size I purchased at HD about 8 years ago. The primary improvements are a heavier weight metal and "post couplers" which aid in connecting the upper and lower posts. The couplers do not have a fixed mid-point and may not hammer onto the two posts with equal ease. As a result, care should be taken to balance the coverage on each post.
I found one of the braces (at the rivet end) to be bent, and one of the couplers to need some manipulation to accept the post. These were fairly simple adjustment. Once the shelf is in place, it feels solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tresana Very functional
This was our sixth or seventh unit. I like the look of powder black surface on the metal parts. It is easy to assemble and provide good flexibility with the shelves. I have actually gone three high stack which probably not recommended but so far has worked very well. My only negative comment is the quality of the shelves. The 1/4 inch particle board shelves with a brown wood grain finish look cheap and tacky but the shelves are adequate for the weight loads.

The connectors for this product are horrible to use. I spend hours trying to get it just right and was never able to get the two bars connected.
