The set up is not user friendly. There are no screws to use on the angled holes in the brackets. It’s as though the pre drilled holes in the brackets are on the wrong side. If they would have been on other side it would have worked out better.

Put up shelves in a closet. Went with the RubberMaid product - brackets, shelves and bracket rods. Great product. Plenty of measuring to get things exactly vertical and exactly horizontal. Worth the effort.

Great system, but they are tricky to install!
It was easy to install the tracks, but we ran into the same roadblock as others when trying to attach the brackets to the shelves. There is a deep space between the back mounting hole and the shelf so the screw won't stay straight. When we did finally get one screw into the shelf it pulled right out because it wasn't long enough. Then we finally discovered the trick is to ignore the back mounting holes and use just the front ones (with the screw placed at the closest point within the slot shaped opening). We used three brackets per 48" shelf and they feel very secure. We used the black finish and wish the screws matched or additional black covers were included to hide not just the ones that hold the tracks, but those that hold the brackets as well.

    Typical shelf system of this type. Easy to install, clean simple lines, looks nice. However, if Rubbermaid had tried they couldn’t have come up with a sorrier way to screw the shelves to the brackets. Using the screw lengths they recommend, there is barely enough length to go into the shelf and it’s easy to mess up the particle board and then the screw won’t hold. I’ve installed a lot of this type of system but never with this problem. And in the comments sometimes Rubbermaid recommends a 3.5” screw which will put it sticking out the top of the shelf. What’s up with that, Rubbermaid? The front hole for a screw is about 1” long rather than a single screw hole. I’m assuming this is so when you don’t get the screw lined up the first time you can move back and try again after the particleboard has been ruined. It’s just a bad design on attaching the shelf. Other than that the shelving unit is fine.

      Shelf mounting screws are too short at any angle
      I’ve used these shelf brackets for years and like the wall tracks and brackets a lot. But...this is the first time I’ve tried to screw the Rubbermaid particle board shelve to the brackets (they are in a room for my grandkids) and no matter what Rubbermaid says the supplied screws are too short. At any angle the most the 2” screws project from the bracket is 1/4” this pulls out with little or no force. The next length wood or sheet metal screw available is 2 1/2”, this goes right through the shelf and sticks out the other side. I’ve spent 2 days looking for 2 1/4” screws and am now convinced they don’t exist.

      Thanks for sharing your review of our Twin Track Hardware! We apologize for any inconvenience that you've experienced. The screws in the Twin Track Bracket should not be installed at an angle. Per the assembly document each bracket will use (1) 2" screw and (1) 1.25" screw. The 2" is installed in the rear ant the 1.25" is installed in the front. We hope that this helps. Thanks for choosing Rubbermaid!

        Easy to install. Using this for shelves on a “shoe wall” in a dressing room. Only issue is that some brackets don’t sit straight in the track. They point to the right a little, but still seem to be level so I am using them. Hopefully it won’t compromise the strength and integrity in the long run.

        Very disconcerting to see conflicting responses from Rubbermaid here. One reply mentions a 3" screw and another promises that a 1.25' and a 2" will work. Well idk whether they just don't know or just don't care, but for those like me who bought these and want to actually install them, use a 1-1/4" screw in front and a 2-1/4" in the back

          Track is easy to hang, shelves are a pain
          I've installed several of these shelving units around the house, and have always found the wall-mounted hardware to be easy to install and intuitive. However, I have always used the wire shelving in other locations, and the first project where I used the solid shelves were a pain. I found it to be extremely challenging getting the screws through the bracket and into the shelves, and once I finally did, they were seated so poorly that they promptly tore out of the bottom of the shelf. I am extremely suspicious that the screw lengths that are recommended (2" and 1.25") are too short, given that they have to go in at an angle due to the shape of the bracket; I'm going to have to replace the shelf that got torn up tonight and will try some alternate length screws to see if I have more success. I'm marking that I would recommend the product to a friend based on past experience, but I'm extremely skeptical about the design of these brackets/shelves

            Adequate for the task. I had to build a lot of shelves, so it got expensive using so many of them. Otherwise easy to fit, sturdy and look great.

            Click on "Related Information" above. The message will say there aren't instructions for this product, but click on the link for the list of products that do have instructions. Then click on the link "Decorative shelving -- single and twin track." They are basic ones, but it also includes a list of screw sizes and lengths.

              Easy to connect with the rails and the pilot holes for securing the shelves were set back the right amount.
