Platinum elfa Easy Hang Top Tracks
Love my new Elfa closet!
My builders' special closet was doing nothing positive for our home office. A single shelf? Excuse me? So I took it apart, painted it, and installed my custom closet designed by the wonderful people at the Container Store. From the beginning to the end, the process was delightfully simple.
I started my closet plan online, typing in the measurements, called the 800 number, got my design in a few minutes, and clicked "buy" and "pickup". The hardest part was the drive to the nearest store, an hour away. When I got there, everything was ready, bagged, and instructions printed out. The lady even helped me put everything in the car in a safe way. What a dream!
The next day everything went up easily and smoothly. We have a great and functional closet now. Thank you elfa! and The Container Store!

Elfa is amazing!
We bought our first Elfa for the master his and hers reach in closets in our first house. At the new house, the workmen set in the top tracks for me in the master walk in closet, but I have installed all of the rest of it myself. We now have Elfa in the master closet, the guest room, the home office, the "Man Cave," the utility room, the pantry and the laundry room. We have both original and free standing. As a book case, it holds hundreds of volumes in the office. The "Media Wall" has nearly 4,000 CDs. It looks great. The few places in the house that have lesser shelving now bother me and it will all be replaced with Elfa soon. I measure my space, call the 800 number, get a drawing, make what changes I need, order and pick up at the store. I love the people in the store. They are friendly and so empowering. Yes, I am a 5'3" woman and, yes, I can install it all myself! I will admit that it is much easier to have a second pair of hands to put in an easy hang track or set the uprights for free standing. But.... I can and have done it alone. Love the versitility. Love the way it looks. Love the way it helps me get organized. It is amazingly strong and stable but still really good looking.

I recently ordered the track, rail and shelf with closet rod for a closet. I was totally disappointed to open the packaging and find no hardware. The instructions stated "enclosed hardware". If this item is sold separately - I suggest a pop up at checkout to recommend buying this. Really delayed the installation. Otherwise, I am very happy with the closet.

Great product but surprised something wasn't caugh
I self ordered online without assistance and picked up at a local store.
The width of my shelf unit was two feet. I ordered the track at two feet, which was a mistake because the standards fell off. The track needed to be longer.
When I went back to the store, I was informed that the tracks are never cut less than 26 inches, but mine was. I was a little surprised that this was not caught since I have always received recommendations.
I chose not to return the original track even though I was informed that I would receive a refund. I know that I may be able to use it in some other way someday.
