MetroÂ® Commercial Shelf Connectors
Right idea, but a hose clamp works better
These clips allow you share posts. The first shelf unit has four posts, the next ones hang off the first unit. It works great especially in corners, and gives you another inch of usable shelf space, with some limitations:
First these S hooks are narrower than the shelf wires, meaning each shelf has some back and forth slop. Second, while there is plenty of strength in the down direction (resisting weight on the shelf), they bend easily in the "out" direction (pulling the shelf apart). I supplemented these hooks with hose clamps.
Also note the post hole on each shelf sticks up, so you get a shelf that's wider, but is lumpy. You can't smoothly slide a box for example, because of the post hole.

Wonderful for hooks
i too use them these on a shelf used in the kitchen to hang other items off the shelving unit! They work wonderful!

Great little hooks. I don't use 'em as shelf connectors. I use 'em as hooks to hold/hang commercial grade kitchen items. They clip onto an Intermetro shelf with ease.

Great to link shelves toghether. Then I have all those sleeves I didn't use. Would be great if I could sell them. I have about 20 left.
