I special-ordered this shelving unit to be one of two heavy-duty storage units in my utility/storage room. I wanted a unit that could handle a couple hundred pounds per shelf. I also wanted shelves that could hold hardware/housewares storage containers up to 20 inches deep without risking tipping. I was impressed with the engineering of the system for locking shelves onto the uprights, the strength of the uprights and horizontal shelf braces, and the quality of the shelving boards. For serious household storage applications, this is a winner. Photo shows the unit installed and only partially loaded. The two clear storage bins on left side of second and third shelves are 21 inches long, 15 inches wide, and 11 inches high. The left side of the bottom shelf holds all my tool boxes.

This stand is exactly as described, the only improvement needed is a piece to couple top half to bottom half so as to make it easier for one person to mount stackable.. also it's a bit tricky, if not difficult to get the post to remain in place whilst trying to attach the side rails. It's not heavy duty, but serves the purpose I purchased it for.

I absolutely LOVE these shelves. I have 3 sets and want to order another. I understand this size is discontinued. Can't tell you how disappointed I am about that. GREAT choice for reliably sturdy, safe storage. One little hammer is all that's needed to tap it into place. Simple directions. I added another shelf in between shelves for my canning jars. Love it.

Each upright support comes as two pieces, joined at the center shelf. The two pieces simply butt up against each other, and are hard to keep in place until all eight pieces are together and the shelf installed. Larger Edsal shelves use a joiner sleeve that makes a much more secure connection connection between each upright pair. To make things worse, I bought two shelves, and one had only six upright pieces instead of eight. But, Edsal is very efficient at sending out the missing pieces after "chatting" on their web site.

Assembly was more difficult than neccessary. The previous shelving unit I purchased had connecting brackets, which easily and quickly held the peices together. This unit did not have such brackets. Other than that, the shelves seem to be sturdy and still holding up one month and counting. For the most part, it's what I expected.

Today I received this product. This was the third set of Edsal shelves I've purchased from Home Depot. It will be the last. Unfortunately the design has apparently been changed, for the worse. The pieces that join the vertical legs together have been eliminated. Now, one is required to join the vertical legs by tediously installing a shelf in the center with the shelf pins creating the union of the vertical legs. This is by far an inferior design. It is not only structurally inferior, but it forces you to install a shelf at that height... regardless. Assembly now requires a second set of hands. The frustration comes from the fact that the company has produced a significantly inferior product in order to save a few pennies... at the most. Also, the plastic end caps have been eliminated. Again, the company probably saved ten cents. Lastly, the wood composite shelves have beed replaced with cardboard versions. Great job Edsal! it is indeed sad to see another formerly reputable company go all 'China' on us. Chinese quality mixed with good ol' American greed is the consumer's disaster. Edsal....You will not get any more of my business as you hopefully enjoy your trip to the bottom. PS: Shipping was brutal! You can see how the product arrived. I wish there was something good about the experience.

    4 shelf unit comes WITH the post couplers
    5 shelf version apparently does not come with them? I have the 4 shelf version and it does come w/ post couplers, see photo. I have no idea why the 5 shelf unit does not? it uses one of the shelves to mate/bridge the 2 post pieces. which doesn't seem that stable. I actually bought a 5 foot wide version of this 5 shelf unit but it didn't have couplers either so I ended up returning it before even finishing putting it together, the posts are not stable w/out the couplers. Unclear why the 4 shelf version comes with them but other versions do not?

      I ordered two sets of 24x48 shelves. One set came with 18" braces but the 24" shelves so I got one set of usable sheveles for the price of two. :( Would have been more useful if they had just given me a whole wrong shelf set. But the one that works holds stuff and it's easy to put together. :)

      Pretty easy to assembly, just need a mallet to tap members into holes. Hardest part is where the two vertical supports come together at the middle shelf. Some sort of clip or lip that would give that connection a more positive feel at assembly would help. Also a clip option for clipping together side by side shelves would be great, I connected some side by side shelves with some nuts and bolts. Particle board shelf insert fits and works but could be weakest link in shelving with too much wait or if they get wet. Paint finish on metal parts seems very good.

      The uprights come in two sections and the method of joining them seemed flimsy to me. But when assembled, it seemed to be pretty sturdy. Very easy to assemble. Loved not having to deal with a bunch of nuts and bolts! I put three medium size bins on the bottom shelf, which came no where near the max weight limit of the shelf. However, the bottom front rail has already bowed toward the front and the shelf has lost it's supporting lip and slipped to the floor, leaving the shelf at an angle. Somehow, I am going to have to prop up the front of the shelf so it is level again, The quality of the powder coated metal was excellent.
