Rated 5 out of 5Â by BrooksMimi Shelving made easy
The Back Stop Bars have so many uses, and are invaluable when installing Elfa shelving. Since we always install Standards at 2' intervals, we use the Back Stop Bars as 'spacers' between each standard to insure that we are exactly 2' apart -- and then remove. For longer Standards we'll use 2 -- one at top and one at bottom. The Bars are so easy to click in and remove, and they make shelving installation a breeze. Once the Standards are where we want them, we simply remove the Back Stop Bars. May sound like a waste to use them for spacing, but the time saved is incredible. There's no guessing and when modifying a system, with the Bars between 2 Standards, all can be shifted right and left.
We also use them with the Metro hooks for lighter weight items we want to hang between Standards.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Busybrain Nice way to add magnetic storage to my desk!
I devised a treadmill desk using Elfa components and wanted more ways to pin up notes so I added a couple of these to my setup. They are sleek looking, and I can put magnetized mesh baskets (small ones) on them too. I have a nice view I didn't want to block so these are perfect since I can still see between the strips. Easy to put into the shelf standards too. (I used the freestanding components to create the desk, which works beautifully).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 1stmamallama Perfect solution for freestanding shelves
These solve the problem of things being pushed too far back on Elfa freestanding shelves and falling down the back. The also serve to keep those pesky cords pushed down. Well worth their slight cost as that perfect finishing touch. If you are using freestanding Elfa as a room divider with shelves on both sides these are a must have for each side and each row of shelves! Low cost for a great solution!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by YankeeSierra You will need a glue remover
It fits perfectly and makes the shelves look good. However the label stickers do not come off as easily as on the rest of the merchandize.
Container Store should either change the glue being used on the stickers or provide a packet of glue remover with these pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TexasMom Best Magnet Bar
These make the best magnet bars. In my study, I stuck a couple over my elfa desk to hold notes. In my daughters' room, I have a set of 4, placed under their elfa shelves, to hold artwork.
The nice thing is that you can use these bars with any type of elfa shelving, not just the freestanding kind. The upright bars just have to be 2 feet apart.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rocean Great to hang pictures and notes.
I have the Elfa shelving system. The one wall has the desk with shelves above it. I use the back stop bar with Magnutz's to hold notes. The other wall has shelves around a lateral file with printer on it. I rotate pictures of family on the back stop bars with Magnutz's.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by medoitmyself greatest purchase
this is the greatest! I have several in my craftroom and I hang my punches on them. I have some mini magnets and I tack little notes to it in the office. It keeps everything evenly lined up.

The backstop bars are critical - now we can push books and videos all the way back against the stops and even put a second row onto the shelves if need be!
