Platinum Elfa freestanding Uprights is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is great! I needed some "extra" countertop space for holding an Excalibur dehydrator. I purchased the free-standing uprights and the other components because I couldn't think of any other way to solve my problem. (And the 3 cu. ft. freezer I was going to order was out of stock on Amazon.) If I had my "druthers", though, I'd make a size that would fit easily under a countertop. Or countertop height. The 41" height is a tad too tall and is getting in the way of easily opening a window in my laundry room. (I have to stretch to reach around the shelf unit.) I'm considering taking the uprights to a metal-working place to see if they can be cut down to a more workable height. Other than that, I love the fact that I can easily move it! It was relatively easy to put together (once I viewed the online video of how to attach the cross-braces).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Just moved into a rental where we can not screw into the wall. The free standing unit works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great solution Bought the freestanding for a laundry room in the basement. The wall is a thin plywood and not exactly flat. Added the wide drawer stack on casters, hooks, and valet rod. I use the valet rod to button shirts before hanging on the closet rod, and the hooks come in handy for air drying machine washed ball caps. I have a melamine shelf for those times I need a working surface, and the drawer stack can be either moved out of the way or as an additional surface. The ventilated shelves work for storing throw rugs, the dog's laundry, anything. The flexibility to rearrange shelving or even move the entire unit(s) makes this well worth its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE My elfa free standing I love my freestanding elfa system, I am an artist and a student which requires me to be organized in a tiny apartment with a lot of art supplies and materials. As soon as i was able to i started saving and invested in my organization and it's changed my life. This product is sturdy and easy to assemble. In a few short hours i had all my art supplies organized where I can see them and up off the floor where they had been previously, which gave me room to move, think and create! I love what i have so far and I intend to keep buying parts and expand as i can afford it ^__^ p.s. I assembled it all by myself with very little trouble, and look forward to the ease of moving with this product ^_^

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Elfa I have been using these shelves in one configuration or another for years now and they are always reliable and great looking!! i have paired them with homemade shelves using recycled wood and they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in the Pantry We put these together in a new pantry closet and they are just great. We were able to utilize every inch of space and keep this visible and orangized and easy to reach. On some of the shelves I put some plexi glass sheets so smaller things wouldn't fall through. They are sturdy and I can get a duster underneath when I'm in the mood to deep clean :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Freestanding Components If you are a fan of Elfa Shelving but relocate a lot like I have to do for work OR you want this for an apartment or a dorm function, Freestanding components are for you! I love that I no longer have to deal with fixing the rather large size holes the drywall anchors require (apartments almost always have metal studs now, so you cannot hang shelving in studs) and that I can take this down and set it up in new configurations to best fit my newest space. Expensive when compared to the wall hanging system, so I wait to buy components during sale, but otherwise these are a super solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Love the elfa free standing. Looks great in my closet and is very functional and can move with me when I relocate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy Product Hard to say much about a simple upright other than it provides a rigid and sturdy backbone to freestanding Elfa systems. I've certainly never had one fail on me and continue to be impressed with their design and functionality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great elfa Very solid; provides a sturdy platform for all the elfa accessories and shelving options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desk Parts Used to build customized computer desk. At first, thought they would be too tall, but will attach speakers to them at ear level and get speakers out of the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a whole new dimension No free walls? No problem. The freestanding elfa system was the solution for me. Walls of glass and electronic equipment didn't leave many options for hanging shelves. We put a line of two-sided freestanding elfa shelves down the middle of the space. Looks very polished and modern. Provided all the storage we need -- and can always add on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just when you thought it couldn't get better I love elfa but then came freeatnding elfa and my life changed. I really love this stuff - get organized and future proof it. As your needs change so does the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent These uprights are thick and sturdy, which is what you want for something that's ~7 ft tall holding up shelves. I'm so happy with the freestanding system in my basement, that I'm putting one in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to put up Used these supports in a very tight closet. They were easy to put up, especially since I needed to crawl in a tight space. They are strong and holding numerous pounds of canned food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from greatest product I love the fact they are free standing. NO HOLES in the walls and you can move them around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with elfa freestanding Strong, looks nice, very flexible. Originally I planned to mount shelves on the wall. But having done that before, I prefer the freestanding hardware. No problems getting the shelves perfectly level. And I can expand it easily, move it to another room with ease, and take it with me when I sell the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pantry solution We used the Elfa system to create a pantry in our kitchen. The system is so easy to install and the shelves are very sturdy - they house all of our cookbooks and serving pieces. Getting ready to purchase the system again for our kids closet.

Community Q&A

What is the total height for the 62" free standing, if you include the feet and stabilization on top? Thank you.

Asked by: Cindy Yoga
These add 2-1/4" of height to the uprights, so your total height would be 64-1/4" tall
Answered by: Hcordray

Would a 3 foot long ventilated shelf with 2 freestanding uprights be able to support 2 boxes of copy paper? (about 20 pounds per box)

Asked by: Savannahh
Yes, as long as the weight is evenly distributed it should be fine. Thank you!

I need three 62-inch uprights for a stand alone shelf unit. St. Louis only has two. Can the 83-inch version be cut to a 62-inch length?

Asked by: JoElen
No, our elfa Freestanding Uprights can NOT be cut.

I have a wall unit I have taken down because we moved. Is it possible to make it freestanding by adding the feet and stabilization brackets?

Asked by: HH2020
Fresstanding Uprights can be used with the feet. These uprights are different than the Easy Hang Standards.

Could I use a peg board instead of stabilizers?

I need a freestanding unit that is 18" wide. Could I use peg boards instead of stabilizer kits to stabilize it?

What is the width of the freestanding upright? I saw in another answer that it is 2" deep - but I cannot find the width dimension.

Asked by: EddieH
Our elfa freestanding uprights are 1" wide and 2" deep.
Answered by: chuckm

What width shelves can be used with the freestanding system?

I have 30" wide shelves from another project I would like to reuse
Asked by: WilburRoss
The Elfa Freestanding Stabilization Kits come in 18", 2 ft., and 3 ft. widths, so the width of the shelves would have to correspond with those sizes.
