Overview

Product Information

The best way to maximize the space on virtually any shelf is to divide it vertically. Our Large Expanding Shelf is cleverly adjustable from 16-3/8" to 32-1/2", allowing you to use it on just about any length shelf. The two pieces can be used at right angles to each other to create a corner shelf in larger cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great in upper cabinet to organize dinnerware and in closet for sweaters! September 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not just for the pantry Originally I was going to buy one just for my pantry, but ended up getting two more for my refrigerator. I put one in the freezer to give me an extra shelf, and one in the back of the lower section for things I don't need to access frequently. They work great. August 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelf expander works well to expand capacity of fixed shelves in kitchen cabinets January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great help! This sturdy expandable shelf helped unclutter an often-used permanent shelf in my kitchen. November 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by large expanding shelves These are great for expanding counter space, etc. Wide, sturdy and just what we needed. Keeps everything in place and tidy. January 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super helpful re: add'l shelves in pantry I bought these for my husband and I to use in the awesome built-in pantry in our new apartment, but wanted to maximize shelving space. Thanks to these, we can use our built-in shelving and don't have to buy separate/external shelves or cabinets! Also, they are pretty sturdy and easy to set up. I asked an employee at the store upon picking up my online order and he explained the proper way to easily set it up so one doesn't have to bend the product and risk it not being sturdy. December 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by works out well it would have gotten a 5 star had it fit together better, but you have to put something heavy on it to lie flat. Otherwise it doesn't stay flat September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Purchase Ever I don't have a pantry so I placed this on a shelving unit to gain more storage and easier access. Fits perfectly and the item look so nice now that they are neatly stacked. . July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect solution I love these racks. I bought four of them to organize my kitchen cabinets a little better. They are so sturdy and look great! Love, love, love them. May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shelf! Got this to add a shelf in my coffee mug cabinet, and it does exactly what it says! Got tired of balancing mugs on top of one another so this shelf worked great!! Gave me sturdy vertical space and doubled the storage!! Love that it expands to fit the cabinet perfectly !! I'm thinking of getting another for the shelves above it, but not expanding it fully, leaving room on the side for taller cups and travel mugs.. Highly recommend it!! April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shelves! I love these shelves! I know that they are sold in the "Kitchen Organization" section, probably mainly for the pantry, but I love them in my bedroom closet! I use them for shoes, and it means I can store twice the amount of shoes, in the same amount of space! (See picture attached!!! Isn't this product so cool???? It's like "Shoe Heaven!"). I just purchased more, but I bought the first set probably a decade ago, and they are just as white as the day I bought them! No rust or "aging"! These will hold my shoes for a lifetime!!!!! :> April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by STRONG ADJUSTABLE Shelf - perfect foe so much! Needed extra space in dish cabinet and this allowed me to double my space. Went on to buy another and used it in my pantry and again I gained space. All without risking the safety of my dishes and bottled goods. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase I purchased this shelf to organize the canned foods in my pantry. Now I can see everything at a glance without having to sort through all the cans to find what I want. March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Game changer This product transformed my pantry even more than I anticipated! I purchased and am amazed and how much more organized and easy to use my pantry space has become. No more stacking cans and trying to see in the back. Everything is neat, lined up and organized! Highly recommend! March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scrapbooking tool! This works great for sitting your diecut machine on while scrapping and you still have the table space underneath February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A new use for the shelf I've been able to use this shelf in many cabinets, which is great; however, this morning I discovered an unexpected and perfectly wonderful use for them! I'm not tall and when I sit at my desk my feet are not quite close enough to the floor. I haven't been able to find anything I liked that would really help. This morning I remembered that I had a spare shelf, put it under the desk and voila! Talk about perfect! Not only is the height just right but the wire feels really comfortable on my feet. Way to go Container Store!! January 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really helpful These shelves really help maximize storage space. I have a set of hand-made pottery dishes, and I don't like to stack them too high. There's just not enough shelf space in my cabinets to avoid that and still store everything. I've used non-expandable shelves in the past, but we have new cabinets, and the previous shelves weren't long enough. These were perfect. I had trouble with one shelf that I couldn't get to lie flat, but I bent it a bit, and it was fine. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it We originally bought this to put in our kitchen pantry so we could see smaller cans or food containers. I loved it and thought it would be perfect under our sink in upstairs guest bath with pipe in the middle and lots of empty space. I put it there and it is so great we are now going to get 2 more, one for kitchen pantry and one for shoes in closet. It's expandability is wonderful. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clever and wonderfully useful I bought several of these shelves and have been able to greatly increase the space I have for storing dishes in a kitchen that wasn't built with enough. Whoever inventing these shelves is a genius! October 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes everything a lot easier While this shelf may not give you more room, it unquestionably makes any space much, much neater and easier to use. One of my pet peeves is that things shouldn't be stacked too high or too deep, and this makes a huge difference. The width is very adjustable, so it's an efficient use of space. Also, although it seems flimsy at first, once the two pieces are locked into position it's surprisingly solid, with no cheap discount-store feel common to coated wire. October 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! I bought the expanding shelf for a tall, deep cabinet. It fits along the back of the cabinet and I can see what's back there now. The things on it are easier to reach and I don't need to empty the cabinet to find something. October 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Camper Organizer I used this in my camper in the overhead cabinets in the kitchen. Gave me twice the storage. Only issue is the grating of the shelf. Had to make a cardboard top for the shelf so my rubber shelving liner would stay in place. When traveling, the rubber shelving liner holds things in place on the shelf. But it worked and this was a great purchase. June 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by expanding shelf This is a great little shelf that can adapt to any closet or cabinet, helps to eliminate clutter and take advantage of verticle storage space. I like that it is adjustable and surprisingly sturdy for such a long shelf. the shelf will have a middle leg when fully expanded so that helps to keep it sturdy. March 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value These shelves are strong enough to hold canned goods and heavy jars, and they have made my pantry so much tidier and more organized. Now I can easily see and get to everything! And for the price, you really can't beat it. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great White Wire Organizer Very useful organizer. stretches across top cabinet. March 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed The adjustable shelf was perfect for my closet.i doubled my closet space. March 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Large Expanding Shelf These shelves doubled the space in my upper cabinets. They were very easy to install. March 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sturdy and useful If you are thinking of buying a large kitchen cabinet shelf, just spend a buck more and go in for these. They can be assembled in any way--horizontal or in an L shaped manner. The expanding section has only two feet, but you can use it as a separate shelf too, if you put a regular iodized salt bottle to balance it (a trick I discovered accidentally!) giving you double the space a large shelf would otherwise give you. March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Double space... yes, please! I purchased this for my pantry. It is sturdy enough to stack cons on top and tall enough to put them underneath, even when set at the widest width. This perfectly bisects the height of my pantry shelves essentially doubling the space where they are used. I plan to purchase more soon. The corner feature is nice though you do not get quite as much extra space when you use it that way. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doubled my space! I live in an apartment with almost NO kitchen or bathroom storage. I bought several of these and use them in bathroom and kitchen cabinets - I need to buy a few more - I love that I can also turn the one piece so it fits in a cabinet in a T or L shape.

Answer: 
They're both included. One of the pieces has 4 legs, and one has 2 legs and 2 hooks that hook firmly onto the top of the other piece. The picture's accurate -- if you look you see a total of 6 legs between the 2 pieces.

Same problem - can't get it to lie flat?

I have the same issue as the previous poster. I can't seem to get the 2 pieces to hook together in such a way that they lie flat. Am I supposed to bend the wires so that it does? That seems silly. If there is a trick, they should include instructions! Help!

Answer: 
The Large Expanding Shelf consists of two parts. Please set the main piece with the four feet on your existing solid shelf. Then, place the expanding piece (with two feet) over it. It can even be placed at a 90 degree angle to create an L-shaped configuration.

Answer: 
It took a minute or two to figure out, that one shelf locks in
from below the regular shelf. It will have 2 prongs that need to
hook on to the regular shelf. It may take a wee bit of manuevering, but they will lay flat. You need to decide what
length you want before you add the pronged shelf.
hope this helps.

Is it supposed to lie flat?

I just bought this and I can't get the two pieces to lie flat together. Am I doing something wrong or should I exchange it? I was not planning to put anything heavy on top, and even so, wouldn't it just pop up again when I take stuff off (causing anything else to fall off)?
