Just replace the particle board shelf with plywood and your good to go. Also combine with Ace's $10 off $50 coupon for today only to make this deal even sweeter!

They are adjustable, but it is limited because you absolutely must have a shelf right in the middle because it holds the top and bottom pieces together. Of course, you are generally going to put one on the top and one on the bottom, so you can really only adjust the other 2 shelves.

This is a great deal for some good shelves. I have some and while the particleboard does sag a bit after a while, it still holds what I need it to hold without breaking, so it is not bad enough that I have replaced it. If you want to hold something really heavy right in the middle of the shelf it might be a problem, but if the weight is pretty well distributed it works.

I had a row of 1 gallon paint cans on one of the shelves. Yup, after a while it sagged, but still held up just fine.

Since I'm picky, I just made an afternoon trip to Lowes and got some OSB flooring, ripped it to fit and now I have SUPER strong shelving units that just laugh when I chunk my power tools and bowling balls onto them.

JSquare 11-27-2011 08:30 PM

The 48"x24"x1/2" particle boards alone are worth over $40.
Any coupons to sweeten the deal?

brian.shirley 11-28-2011 08:07 AM

These seemed a bit wobbly to me when the shelves were loaded with heavy stuff (paint cans, power tools, auto parts, etc). The thickness of metal for the vertical posts was rather slim and made the unit flimsy, seemed like it needed an x brace added to the back to stiffen them up. Just my two cents... Everyone on here seems to have had a decent experience.

yes, use the 10 off 50 ace hardware coupon ( as mentioned above) or grab a 10% off moving coupon from the post office for lowes ( this is what I used on BF)

dnewto 11-28-2011 08:12 AM

Bought two of these. Great shelves. Also agree that if any sagging became a problem, board could be replaced with a stronger board pretty easy.

As a side note - My Sams has the same shelves except that they are taller and $59. As I remember it, you get an additional shelf and it is 84" tall instead of 72" tall.

BuffaloBillius 11-28-2011 08:17 AM

These are pretty decent shelves. Got 6 a few years back. It was actually cheaper than the rinky-dink other one they had at the time that seamed very flimsy. The shelving itself is/was made of particle board, but they do a great job holding all my munitions, reinforced.

redhare3 11-28-2011 08:19 AM

If they sag a bit, just flip 'em upside down -- the small "bump" will eventually flatten

tstarks 11-28-2011 08:21 AM

These shelves are solid, had them for about a year and a half and have not had any sagging yet, but it is particle board, so use common sense. Have my jack and jack stands on the bottom shelf, outer perimeter. Lighter stuff towards the middle.

Had to wrestle with Sears, but got these for like $20 each after a price mistake from 2 Black Fridays ago.

Yup! I have these in the garage as a workbench - an order of two will make a 16 foot wide workbench at a nice height. They are very sturdy. They don't really show but they can be put together side by side for low shelving and its a very good use.

They are more sturdy than they look. if you distribute the weight evenly, you can put hundreds of pounds on a shelf.

I bought two more for the basement

they sell a comparable TRINITY NSF 4-tier All-purpose Indoor/Outdoor Black Shelving Rack for 55 + tax at costco, but not sold in store in my area.

Not sure how much costco would charge to ship it.

jaminnc 11-28-2011 09:37 AM

I own one of these and they definitely do sag. I own another brand, can't think the name right now that are almost identical except the shelves are covered by black laminate and do not sag whatsoever probably due to the laminate covering.

Flimsy, lot more time to assemble, If assembly not done correctly will be a problem, and not as much of weight capacity.

jdbronco 11-28-2011 12:29 PM

I bought these over the summer with a coupon and paid $5 or $10 more. They're great for garage storage. Like a previous poster said, use common sense with the heavy stuff near the edges. Mine is in a garage corner so maybe that is why I haven't noticed any flimsiness.

Good luck finding something more robust at this price. I looked at commercial shelving but a comparable unit was several times more expensive.

jay_rm 11-28-2011 01:57 PM

There are two different models - this one is lighter duty then the other (not on sale) version. I believe the OTHER version is good for something like 1200 lbs.

I saw them stacked up on BF but passed as 800 lbs is not adequate for shelving this large, IMO.

SlickForLife 11-28-2011 02:08 PM

If anyone has a 10% lowe's mover's guide they won't be using, could you please pm me with the code? I need to buy a few of those shelving units. Thanks

epulsiph 11-28-2011 02:59 PM

Where do you get the 10 off 50 Ace Hardware coupon? Is there any way to use this online or do you just have to go in to a store that has the shelf in stock?

tuff2beat 11-28-2011 03:24 PM

Go to Post Office and ask for "Movers Packet" at the counter. You will find a Lowes 10% coupon there. They are hiding those behind the counter these days. I went and picked one up y'day and bought an appliance for $1070 and save a cool $107!!!

we get to buy a "RACK" for $50 but we have to worry that they "SAGG" over time, isn't it how all women are too?

gabro 11-28-2011 05:11 PM

good price, but it is junk! Make sure you have a good hammer and lots of patience when you assemble it... I wouldn't use them to store more than 200lb

wario76 11-28-2011 05:50 PM

Just for your information my company ordered a few of these racks, they are great except for the pieces of plywood that come with the rack. They sag, we replaced with thicker plywood. cheers!

Svarog 11-28-2011 05:55 PM

I bought these shelves 3 years ago and the shelves were bowing within a month. I was storing fairly light stuff like board games and toys.

If you're determined to repeat my mistake, you might as well pick up the plywood replacement shelves while you're there.

KoolMom 11-28-2011 07:27 PM

Particle boards, we purchased the black wire shelving for the same price, less heavy and very sturdy too. Wished I thought of going to HD to price match, but I like Lowes' better anyway.

impelus 11-28-2011 07:30 PM

Was in for 3, then read the reviews. So, now, only in for 1.

ubuntu_guru 11-28-2011 07:38 PM

Thanks OP. Got 4 of these. These things are heavy; I had a very hard time loading and unloading them. So I suppose they are good stuff. With a little effort, I was able to fit all 4 in a sedan.


Edit: The weight was mainly because of the compressed wood. The metal rails seem pretty standard.

cptcrunch 11-28-2011 07:55 PM

I bought some of the all metal shelving units seen here: text [lowes.com]. Very sturdy and no issues with the middle connection. Same price as these as well.

Nope. But the legs are the main supports and they only take up like 3x3 inches of space. So you could nail/screw some 2x4s into your garage foundation to take up the slack. Or just have the legs at different heights. Should work out :shrug:



Oh and yeah, please please please secure these shelves to a stud or two. It'll make them TONS safer in your garage.

"Piece of trash" seems harsh. I have a smaller Gorilla shelf as well and this is stronger if that helps for reference. I'm using it to store boxes and bulk items from Costco trips and no bowed shelves yet.

benjie 11-28-2011 11:50 PM

Great deal, picked up 2. If the shelves start to sag, it's as simple as grabbing some plywood/flooring, cutting it in quarters, and popping them in. At this price, that's 10 minutes worth of work I'm willing to risk at some point in the future.

acerunner 11-29-2011 02:37 AM

can someone tell me the dimensions of the box for this, unassembled? Will it fit in a passenger car? I ordered 3 for pickup. Need to know if I should take my truck or if I can take my car.

selz202 11-29-2011 02:48 AM

Its actually pretty small. I fit one quite easily in the back of my saab 9-3 with the seats folded down. I probably could have fit 3-4. Id say its 2 ft wide x 5ft long max. Only about 4-5 inches thick too.

dscline 11-29-2011 07:18 AM

We bought 8 of these units earlier this year (though we may have the 1200lb rated units). FYI, if you're concerned about the shelves sagging (we were, because these went into an unconditioned garage in Atlanta humidity), just get some 2x3 lumber, cut it to a little under 24" lengths (long enough to span under the shelve front to back, with enough clearance at the edges to not interfere with the shelves sitting flush in the rails), and screw/glue two of them to the bottom of the shelves, spaced equally. 2x3 lumber is cheap, only adds a few bucks per shelving unit, and the shelves don't sag AT ALL. This is a cheaper and stronger option than replacing the shelving with plywood.

Igorkocev 11-29-2011 08:43 AM

Take your truck for sure.

Box dimension is 48x24x ~6inch I wanna say... but they weigh a TON! Getting it into a bed will be a heck of a lot easier.

shifty1981 11-30-2011 07:50 AM

spend $10 more and get the set from costco. the shelves don't sag at all. a bit diff dimensions but I prefer not as deep so more room for car in garage.
