Rated 4 out of 5Â by Treehugger Big Max Shed
We bought the Big Max Shed last Fall; this spring we wanted to organise it with shelves!! What an exercise in frustration between Home Depot and Rubbermaid, none the shelving units descriptions clearly say they are for use in the Big Max or any plastic shed.
The FastTrack system recommended is meant for a garage or places where it can be screwed into a wall. The last thing you what to do is screw holes through plastic shed walls, not enough integral strength in the walls and it would create potential leakage problems.
We need a system that will easily screw to the u shaped hooks that came with the unit and plug into the wall sections, either the rails or the uprights so we can set up shelves. Any one had any success and can recommend product numbers?
This year we saw some sheds that had the uprights screwed into the joins in the wall sections that in which would be great.
If you want to organise the Big Max be prepared to spend $$$ on free standing shelve units which may or may not be the best solution.

The same as the previous user. I bought a Rubbermaid Big Max shed with instructions on how to install the the Rubbermaid shelfs and they are incompatible! The brackets aren't long enough.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Donald3659 Good product inadequate instructions
No instructions on spacing of fasteners for upright supports could be found. Also note that the drywall fasteners Rubbermaid supplies require a "key" tool to properly install. There are no instructions in the Hardware Pack as to how to install the wall anchors and there was no "key" tool included. The wall anchors are useless without the "key". I wasted a couple of anchors and several hours figuring out how to install the drywall anchors. The wall anchor installation information is found in the assembly instructions on the Rubbermaid web site. Also note that the 16 inch deep free slide wardrobe shelving uses a 12 inch support bracket NOT a 16 inch.

I bought the Rubbermaid FastTrack uprights to use as shelf supports in my newly purchased Rubbermaid shed (as recommended in shed installation instructions) and they are impossible to use in the shed. The hanging brackets included with the shed are not deep enough to install with the fasttrack uprights. I do not know why Rubbermaid recommends a product that does not work.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Sheesh Terrible bracket design
I puzzled and puzzled on how to lay the shelf flat on the brackets while following the instructions, and then went online to see if I could find any help - what I found was that part of the bracket sits above the shelf, therefore creating unusable shelf space. Why would a shelf system design call for brackets to breech shelf space?!? Makes no sense to me. Now that they are installed, I will keep them. Overall the design is great with the exception of these ridiculous brackets that will interfere with the organization and limit what I can do with the shelf space. Not happy.
