Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flintstone Easy installation.
I picked up the track, brackets and shelves. After marking where I wanted the track, temporarily screwing it to the wall, so I could mark all the faster locations. I easily install it by my self in less than an hour. Great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricS Excellent product
I don't understand the reviews complaining about the lack of instructions. The installation and usage of the Twin Track system is obvious. The twin tracks have round holes at each end and spaced across the length. This is where the screws go to mount them to the wall. Like anything, it's best to screw them into wall studs. If you can't find the studs or they're inconveniently located, use any of the many styles of drywall screws instead. The brackets clip easily onto the tracks. The shelves sit on the brackets.

I needed a couple of shelves in my galley kitchen so decided on track shelving. When I purchased the tracks, I noticed the hardware package and decided to purchase it. I initially couldn't determine how the expanders were inserted and it was not described on the packet. Looked through the reviews to see if someone else had a solution. Found a comment by Rachael that described the solution. Fold the wings inward and insert into a 7/32 drilled hole. Worked perfectly and the tracks and shelves went up in no time at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul75 Very good product
I don't get all of the whining about the lack of instructions. I'm not the most handy of people, but it's easy to figure out. It's easy to find brackets with holes in them to anchor the shelves to the brackets. The brackets hold a good bit of weight. I put both my kids (ages 8 & 4) on the shelf to make sure it would hold.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raquel great product, horrible instructions
So the picture for the hardware really doesn't explain what to do. You need to bend the anchor in on itself to form that point. I used a 7/32 drill bit to make the hole. Then worked the folded point of the anchor in a little by hand and hammered it in the rest of the way (you want it to be tight). You then proke the black piece into the hole to open up the anchor. You might need to hammer that a bit too but mostly i was able to push it in and hear the anchor pop open. Then just screw in the metal piece. Very easy once you figure it out! Why they couldn't tell you this somewhere i have no idea! !

My husband and I spent hours putting up twin tracks in my daughters room. We wanted a wall of shelves. We finally went to put the shelf on and realized that we could not secure the "wood" shelves to the brackets. Useless waste of time. We are removing everything and returning it all. Now I will have to putty and paint a whole wall.

I use this dual track system for shelving my books. I secure the rails with 2.25" masonry screws into my cinder block walls, spacing them 14-15" apart. I chose 12" deep shelves to accommodate my 3-ring binders. Otherwise, the 10" deep shelves would do for most books if you don't mind the widest ones sticking out a little. The cinder blocks will give before the shelving will. This system uses wall space better than free-standing bookcases. If I ever want to move the shelves, they'd also take up less space than a bookcase. I highly recommend Rubbermaid's dual track shelving systems for heavy storage (like books). Like my wife, they're strong and reliable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bparker great hardware - infuriating labeling
We love these metal shelving standards and brackets. They're terrific. But as for the shelves themselves, we will NEVER buy the Rubbermaid brand again. The shelves are labeled using an adhesive that extremely frustrating. Try using a razor blade or a scraper to get the label off and you'll likely damage the delicate surface. We have yet to have a label come off in one piece on the many shelves we now greatly regret purchasing. Getting them off is a needlessly time-consuming and maddening process. Come on Rubbermaid! We've purchased many plastic products (Sterlite, Hefty) where the labels are thicker and the adhesive properly formulated so they peal off with ease!
