A: It is flat across the front, very sturdy though.
A: No front lip. Very stabile shelf
A: No, it does not.
A: no, but the depth is 12" and have no problem
A: Hello Christy, unfortunately the end caps will not be able to go on the side unless the center part of the end cap is cut out.
A: Hi Dan, I have the same shelf on one 48 inch gear track, but do not have the end caps on it. The shelf fits right up to the edge on each end. I don't think the way the edge cap is designed that it will fit with the shelf as end of the edge cap would hit the shelf.
A: It will take up the full 4 feet and there will be no extra room for the end caps. I cut two 48" gear tracks down to 30" each & butted them together for 60" total length. I can slide the shelf left or right & still have room for a couple extra small hooks.
A: It'll fit on that shelf, but I'm not sure about the endcaps. It doesn't look like there is room on mine.
A: Hi Dan, Yes it will. The end caps snap on and give the Geartrack and nice, finished look. Thank you.
A: Not sure if the end cap will clear the end of the shelf. Rails are 48" but could be trimmed if necessary.
A: It has special attachment for the gear wall.
A: You need to use the gear track system.The shelf has a lip so it will fit securely on the gear track.
A: The full installation instructions for use will be included and are also on the products page.
A: It needs to be used with Gladiator's GearTrack system. First you mount the track to studs in the walls and then you attach the shelf.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. This shelf is designed for use on Gladiator GearTrack channels and GearWall panels (sold separately). Please see model #'s GAWC042PZY or GAWP042PBY.
A: You do not need the gear track system. I used a 1/2" x 3" x 4' board found on the molding aisle. I screwed the 4' board to studs on the wall, backed off the screws a tiny bit to allow the shelf to slide between the drywall and the 4' board. I used 3" screws. Worked like a charm and slid in place with little effort. Keep in mind that you will need to have an open end somewhere on the wall you are installing the shelf cause you need room to slide it in place. Was not a problem for me because I was mounting the shelves on the outer wall of an "L" wall so I could run the shelves the complete length.
