Bought 4 identical units at Costco two weeks ago for $45 each. They were $50 last weekend, but worth checking out if you have a membership.

I saw these in the store and they're not all that sturdy. The metal parts seem fine but the wooden shelves seem weak. Many of them were warped and I doubt they'd hold up to any moisture.

I was keeping track during bf, they were $50. Unless you're including coupons or something, then I guess. I bought one also. They're flimsy, lol $50 is pushing it with the quality of these.

Costco has the black ones for $45 ($65 - $20 off sale). 2x Thicker uprights but smaller shelves (actual measurement of the shelves are most likely 1" less than what it says on the box, at least the black one I bought are and I'm 90% sure all of them come from the same factory because another store I measured the shelf and they too were 1" smaller shelves.)


The Edsale shelves were about $70 after BF, then like 4 weeks later they were $70, and now they're $60 after 2 weeks.

If you can wait, I'm sure it'll hit $50 again soon.

TLDR: Weak shelf, don't trust the weight limit. User error fcked up my shelf LOL

They are no where near "industrial" strength lol. Mine buckled into itself. Granted it was user error I admit. Bottom shelf NEEDS to be attached like you see in the picture. I thought it was an awesome idea to not put that bottom shelf on so I can easily slide stuff underneath it.

But nope, the top shelf had about 120lb and the board snapped in half and went between the wall and shelf, pushing it forward but the legs stayed put since it was on carpet. Then it just bent and toppled onto itself.

The weak point isn't where the vertical sides stack ontop each other (in my scenario at least). It was the bottom lol

The thickness is about the same as a dime. Imagine stacking two dimes ontop of each other on it's edge, that's how the vertical post stack on each other laugh out loud. It's kinda scary when you first think about it but that's the least of your worries. Your'e gonna want to go to HD and have them cut you some wood, just tell them the dimensions and it takes like 2 minutes.

All-in-all, I'd buy again, just attach the bottom shelf and it'll be a little sturdier and you won't be in my situation LMAO

OR

Get the black one, they're twice as thick (the metal uprights) but smaller in dimension (even though they list it as 24-in D x 48-in W x 72-in, it's really not). The shelves are actually 23 x 47".

Pictures so you can laugh at my fail.

Pictures so you can see the thickness of the metal and me testing 135lb in the center of the shelf. Thinking I was good to go, Lol I thought having 120lb distributed evenly on the shelf was a good idea. Boy was I wrong.

Conclusion: Buy more shelves to stack ontop of the existing shelves it comes with lol

I thought about getting a couple of these on black friday for $50, but they are just not heavy enough for what I needed. If you want an 18" deep shelving for about the same price, lowes has these wire shelves.

There should be plastic clips that hold the top and bottom vertical posts together.

I don't know.. Only the black ones have something you can slide in between to connect the two halves.

The gray one you just use the shelf to connect the top and bottom.

I got one of these open box from Lowe's a few months ago. Mainly use it as a surfboard rack, 24" depth is just wide enough for most boards to slide right into. Spaced it so there is a big space between the topmost and second highest shelf and it's become my main work table in my (small) garage.

Definitely worth it at this price! I'd get another if I had room... And might do so just to be able to pop a couple more shelves in there.

Do yourself a favor and cut some new wood shelves before you put that cheap MDF on there. Lasted about a year and a half before they all started sagging.

I've had similar shelves since 2010 and they're sturdy enough for a 165 lb. person to stand on, at least around the edges -- I wouldn't risk jumping on the center. Haven't had any problems with wobbling, wood sagging, or collapsing like @Adelley, But the MDF does absorb stains and moisture. I've flipped them over and swapped the top shelves with lower ones several times to keep them looking tidy.
