Can the length of these be cut? We would like to hang multiple shelves end to end the full width of a room.

Answer: 
You could cut 6 or 7" off one end of the 35.4" ones without interfering with the back plate tubes but you would probably not want to as you would lose the smooth plastic laminate covering, exposing the Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) on that end. Maybe this would be acceptable for instance, if that end was going into a corner.

Answer: 
I would say no these can not be cut. The shelf is hollow and the cut edge wouldn't look good. Also there's a metal bracket that anchors to the wall and if the shelf were cut the bracket would have to be cut as well. I think there are other sizes available.

ALgirl44,
Thank you for your inquiry. We do not recommend trimming the shelf. There are hidden metal bracket allowing greater weight capacity. Trimming the shelf may impact the weight capacity of the unit.

Maybe there are two different designs in play? My back plates had 7 holes. I supposed the additional holes were to increase your chances of catching two studs but my back plates seem designed to prevent that. They were pre-drilled for 16.5”, 19.5”, 21 3/8” and 22.5” stud spacing. I have never seen anything other than 16” wall stud spacing. The 4 pre-drilled holes that are slotted only allow 3/8” Read More

Yes, I noticed this too. I am not sure why there are holes in the middle of the bracket but I used the two on each end. But soon took it back down and will be returning it since it does not sit level from front to rear. This is because the shelf does not fit snuggly onto the bracket.

Dear Customer,
The extra holes exist to give customers the most flexibility when hanging their shelf. This allows them to choose which holes to use and whether the specific hole needs an anchor or not. For instance, the place where they will be hanging the shelf may have a wall stud in the middle of the shelf and not on either end.

Dear Customer,
The extra holes exist to give customers the most flexibility when hanging their shelf. This allows them to choose which holes to use and whether the specific hole needs an anchor or not. For instance, the place where they will be hanging the shelf may have a wall stud in the middle of the shelf and not on either end. With the extra holes they would be able to use screws with anchors on both ends and then screw into the stud without using an anchor. We also supply more screws than anchors for their flexibility.
The most important thing is for the shelf to be screwed into at least one stud and to use the supplied anchors as the instructions say.
Thank You

Answer: 
There is a metal bracket that gets secured to the wall either by drilling two screws into studs directly (preferred) or five screws using drywall anchors. The metal bracket has two metal posts that the shelf slides onto. Then two screws are used to secure the shelf to the metal posts.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Installation is difficult but not impossible. Mine ended up looking pretty good. I read all the negative comments but purchased 5 of these anyway. There are certainly some things to be aware of when installing these. One of the 5 packages was clearly different than the others and had a different set of instructions with no paper template. I don’t know if it was older or newer but I would recommend dispensing with the paper template anyway as there is variance between the template and back plates and between the back plates themselves. Take care to note the horizontal variance of the pre-drilled holes or your shelves won’t line up and down the stack. Both sets of instructions are self conflicting on the size of pilot hole to drill for the plastic anchors. I found 5/16” was correct for those supplied with mine. I would not drill the 5/16” pilot holes for studs as the instructions suggest. Between my 5 kits there were 2 different types of back plates, 2 different types of large screws, and 2 different types of small screws with no rhyme or reason to how they were distributed among the 5 kits. It wasn’t old versus new or anything like that. MAKE SURE THE ARROW POINTS UP! OR THE SHELVES WILL SLOPE DOWN. I used the two-wing plastic brackets because I was able to hit some studs. If you can’t hit any studs, get some metal anchors. The large screws are worthless! After breaking off two of them in studs and my having to reposition the shelves, I got different screws. All but one of the back plates was bent. I had better luck flattening out the back plates first; otherwise, it’s difficult to slide the shelves over the tubes on back plate. The design is poor. The back plate could be 1” (vs ¾”) tall for better stability. I can’t figure out why the back plate is pre-drilled for 16.5”, 19.5”, 21 3/8” and 22.5” stud spacing. I have never seen anything other than 16” wall stud spacing. The 4 pre-drilled holes that are slotted only allow 3/8” horizontal movement so be prepared to drill into the back plate if you want to catch two studs. Good luck! September 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap price cheap product You get what you pay for with this. The metal backing bracket wasn't even flat or level. And the holes drilled in the rods to attach shelf were off center also. August 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NIce for Photos I purchased these floating wall shelves to display photos from trips we have taken. The shelves are very narrow, which is what I wanted, and was having trouble finding. They work really well for displaying the photos... I am able to change and move photos around without leaving nail holes in wall!! May need to get some more for other areas of the house! I do wish they came in a lighter brown...the chocolate is very dark and I would have preferred a bit lighter. Not too difficult to hang, just need a level and some patience!!! August 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy Shelf Easy to install and very stable. Perfect for a home with limited space. July 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shelves worked okay. The shelving seems a little cheap, but you get what you pay for. June 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by These things SUCK! I bought these to show off my collection of nerd items for my man cave. The shelves sag. BADLY!. I started to put some of my collectibles on the shelves and then the shelves started to sag from the wall. After a while some of my collectibles fell of and broke. Now i have to replace them at a cost to me and replace these horribly made shelves. DO NOT BUY THESE. June 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Shelves Easy to install. Clean look. Took a lot longer to get then I would've like due to inaccurate stock quantities shown online. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Cute We bought this to display a vintage Lionel train. It worked out good because the wheels of the train fit over the little rail on the front. If the shelf had been wider we wouldn't have been able to show the wheels. The color had a little red tint to it. I tried to darken it with some Old English scratch cover but the finish wouldn't take it; but it is close enough to the color I wanted. There were two extra holes in the back like someone drilled the holes in the wrong spot. It all worked out. It's cute and I look seeing the train wheels. February 11, 2016
