After reading a lot of negative comments about these shelves, I was hesitant to purchase. Most of the negative reviews were about the support system that came with the shelves. I have a home that was build in 1916 and my walls are lath and plaster and always need extra support.
I didn't even try to use the wall screws that came with the shelves. I purchased a small box of metal dry wall mounts and used those instead.
The installation of these shelves was surprisingly easy. I purchased 3 shelves and I installed all of them in about 30 minutes total. And, I am NOT handy nor do I feel comfortable with power tools.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Mssleeth Inconsistent quality
The shelves look nice and work well when the support bracket and shelf are made so they fit together properly. I purchased the two shelves set. One worked fine, but the other shelf was not well matched to the support. The shelf bracket was too large. When you slid the shelf onto the bracket, they did not fit tight together and the shelf was unsupported. Instead the shelf slide downward on the support. Called the company and was told they would send me a replacement, but they never did. Returned it to Home Depot. First box we opened had the exact same problem. A second one we tried worked fine. So out of four shelves, two were bad.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by AlanP Everything was wrong.
The directions specified the wrong size hole for the anchors. The holes swallowed the anchors. I was able to use larger anchors, but I had to drill out and re-countersink the mounting rail to do it. The screws that connect the shelf to the rail are way too small, really cheap, and break as soon as you torque them down. The specified holes for the anchors are too big for my largest anchor, and the whole thing pulled out of the wall. I think I can make it work with even larger anchors, but at this point I would not recommend this product to anyone. The crux of the problem seems to be directions written by someone who is not familiar with the product combined with a lack of understanding of SAE sizes.
