White elfa Solid Shelf Book Supports
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.

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.

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.

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.
