Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Good quality hanging rod
I chose this product for it's quality, price, and color. None of these disappointed me. I'd by another one if needed someday.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HMaroncelli Not a great grasp on the bar but attractive
It is as attractive as a closet shelf bracket can be however I want to point out just a couple of things. 1, it does not grasp the closet rod very well and 2, it does not come with screws so you are desperately trying to find ones that don't slip through very large holes yet also look ok. Still, reasonable purchase but considering you have to go buy screws as well, not as great of a purchase.

These are very strong metal brackets to hold a clothes pole and / or set up shelves. If putting up shelves, they come in different depths. There are 3 screw holes to hold the bracket. I put mine in a remodeled closet to help support a closet clothes pole. It does not come with screws. I used 2 inch drywall screws and made sure I anchored to the wood beams inside the walls. You will find these in stock in the closet section.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobvilla versatile, clever design
all you need are studs to secure these brackets on the wall. unlike some other brackets, these don't need to be on the ends of the pole where your walls might be weaker. even if the brackets are closer to each other than you'd like, hangers can glide over the brackets easily because the U that holds the rod comes underneath. it's actually a pretty clever design, i'm impressed! yes, it's a plastic U shape holding the rod, but most of the weight load should be downward, which is transferred to the wall, i'm not too worried about the plastic U... yet

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bigpockets poor quality control, questionable design
I used two of these to help support a 7' closet rod and shelf. I mistakenly assumed the two rods would be roughly the same shape, unfortunately one of them is slightly lower than the other, so the weight of the rod is mostly going to be on the higher of the two. If you buy these at home depot, make sure you inspect them prior to purchase and select ones that have similar dimensions. I probably would have done that if I read these reviews more carefully. I figured I could bend the support a bit, but I think I would probably break it before it would bend. I am concerned that heavy weight will cause the plastic support piece to deform or break.
Also I have nice wooden hangers, and they looked like they would work fine but once I had everything mounted, I notice that the hangers don't clear the bottom of the rod support "J" bend, and they also catch on the plastic support piece. Essentially I will not be able to slide my clothes effortlessly down the rod like I had hoped. I have another closet that uses a rubbermaid closet kit with better designed rod supports and sliding across supports works pretty easily.
I think they should have used metal for the rod support holder, and not rubbery plastic. It would likely be thinner and stronger, less likely to break and allow clothes to slide more effortlessly across.
Installation was somewhat difficult, I had to use a right hand angle driver attachment for my drill.
Only big plus is the metal part of the bracket seems very sturdy, but that isn't the reason someone is going to buy this bracket vs another one, they want the rod support feature which is a weak point.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pmuk clamp too small. bar popped off and scraped up our walls
this is a great idea but the plastic clamps to mount the hanger bar are too small. when it clamped to the bar, it was good for about an hour and then all of a sudden we heard a loud noise and realized that the bar had popped/shot right off the clamps and the edges of the bar scraped up both sides of our closet wall pretty good. the clamps need to go farther around the bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garageman Does what it needs to
Very good construction for heavy duty use. Only reason it gets 4 stars is that the brackets are not 100% identical. The differences would be insignificant if using only two to hang a rod & shelf, but if you need three or more due to shelf length, or if you need adjoining shelves to meet seamlessly, you're going to do some shimming to make everything line up. Would be nice to have color coordinated screws for mounting. I used a paint pen (also available at HD) but coverage is not quite as good as if it was a factory finish.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WillJPortAngeles Horrible. Really poorly made.
I purchased eight brackets and two steel clothing rod.
I'm a contractor, so I know how to install a level shelf.
One would expect that all the brackets would be identical, right, ha ha! These are clearly hand – welded, inconsistently produced, and the brackets and Rod support do not line up. Seriously, install three brackets in a row and either your shelf will be level, or your clothing rod will be supported by all three brackets: pick only one, they are 'off' by as much as 1/4".
I only wish I could post a photo showing the final result. The Home Depot internal buyer who authorized this item should recall it and pull it out of stock immediately.
For the average installer it will result in nothing but a horribly frustrating waste of time.
