Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeannie Versatile and easy to assemble
I bought 2 of these shelves for the garage; they came 3-boxes per unit, which was handy considering they would have been too heavy to lift otherwise. There were no directions to put the unit together but I chatted with a HD agent on-line and they sent me a link. Very easy to put together - 25-minutes tops. Use a rubber mallet to ensure shelves are securely in place. The price was ok since it is a very sturdy unit.
There are pairs of black plastic clips that you snap onto the poles to define the placement of the shelf. Although 2 clips don't completely encompass the whole circumference of the pole when snapped in place (there is about an 1/8" gap), the shelf stayed in place.
The only complaint I had was that the casters don't screw into the bottom of the unit; they only slide into place so it's best to have someone help you lean the unit over while you insert the casters two at a time. (Another smaller unit that I purchased from the same company did screw into place; not sure why they didn't choose to do that with the larger, heavier unit.)
I love the versatility of the unit and that I can move it around on the casters as needed in the garage in order to get to other items on the stationary, built-in shelves behind them.
Be sure to measure the height of the items you want to store on the shelves and position the clips/shelves accordingly. Consider placing the top shelf a few inches below the top of the pole to get maximum usage of your top shelf if you have a low ceiling.
