Rated 5 out of 5Â by BuckeyeVoice Strong and Sturdy but Install from the Back
A wall of cookbooks arranged on Elfa solid shelving needed strong support to keep books from tipping or falling over. The solid book support, intermixed with beautiful baskets, fit the bill for book supports. First, I arranged book supports the way they're pictured on Container Store's website, installed on shelf front and pushed back. I don't like this look and it didn't work for smaller books because the shelf support doesn't extend far enough back to support smaller books. I then installed the shelf supports from the rear and they work perfectly! No unsightly addition on the shelf front and strong support for a plethora of book sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by khrideon Don't fit the decor shelves
I may not have read the description, or other reviews, fully but was surprised to learn these don't fit the elfa decor shelves. Otherwise, I think I would have loved them. I will return them on my next visit to the container store.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pathe Pricey but Good and Sturdy
These are really good bookends to use with Elfa shelves, especially if you need some bookend support at the midpoint or so of one of the shelves. They are made of solid metal and do not bend. I'd purchase more if the price wasn't so high, even with a good sale.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RogerGDallas Great addition to Daughter's Library Wall
Purchased 3 sets of these supports. Work Great. They are very sturdy and will hold without falling over. I like the clean look of the white. They are very easy to install, move or adjust. The only negative is that I wish they were a little deeper so that they would fit farther back on the shelf.

I purchased the solid shelf book supports in addition to the clip bookends. I have a lot more flexibility by being able to slide the book supports anywhere I want along the shelf. These supports are held in place so much better than regular bookends which sometimes scoot where you don't want them. A perfect compliment to my Elfa shelving arrangement! It's exactly this kind of ingenuity that keeps me coming back to the Container Store!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jyssilly Sturdy and useful!
The bookends are perfect for keeping things upright on the Elfa solid shelving. One thing is that on my 12" shelving, the book ends only go about halfway on the shelf - so the books have to be at the front edge of the shelf as opposed to being pushed all the way to the back - so there is some wasted space behind the books.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by papajo Elfa Book Shelf System is incredible
The system is well made and easy to put together. This is the third Elfa system we have purchased and we couldn't be more pleased. Working with Container Store Planners and customer service is a help and pleasure to work with. Assistance and answers are always handled effectively, efficiently and friendly and the product is top quality. Received one container of damaged items and customer service expedited the replacement of items immediately with no hassles.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cabinetlady Great with ELFA solid shelving
These solved a problem of binders on my office shelf falling over. I previously only had the book ends that attach to the standards. I have shelves full of client and product binders. If I removed one or more, the rest would fall. I added these book supports every 6 to 12" and problem solved.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mountainlady good support
These worked very well at providing needed support for my heavy scrapbook photo albums on Elfa solid shelving. Have more of them used on additional shelves of books. A very good and sufficient solution for "leaning" items.
