Cable Shelf Brackets
These brackets were easy to hang and adjust, and they look simple and elegant. They were exactly what I needed for my application, where there was no space underneath for traditional brackets. They come with a chart for how much vertical space they need, but for my 12" shelves I needed about 12" above the shelf. A narrower shelf would require more vertical space.

Got this to put in a narrow space (30") between bed and wall, too narrow for a bookcase. Installed it myself! Mounted a shallow (7 1/4") shelf at neck (rather than shoulder or head - ouch!) height with rounded edges and it works great. Holds current reading, a storage cube, clock, etc., and I have more floor room - and compliments on my stylish shelf, too.

Could have been useful...
...except the most critical piece of information was not included in the product description: how long is the cable and can it be adjusted? I wanted to hang this shelf, 6" wide, below another shelf. Because the cable can't be shortened, the higher shelf has to be 16" or so above, which didn't work for me. I'll use the apparatus somewhere #and pickup at a local store was easy#, but I wouldn't have ordered it if the dimensional information, which came with the item, had been in the product description!

Easy to hang
Great alternative to traditional shelving and allows for a number of options. Definitely for a more modern decor. Minor issue: The wires end up taking up a large amount of space if you use shelves with a typical depth (8"). Not so good if you are trying to consolidate space.
