Community Q&A

Would these shelf pins work with the ventilated brackets too?

Long story short, I'm trying to customize the Elfa system to fit into my closet to maximize the space. If I used their decor closet shelves (with the brackets) I'd lose 10" of hanging and shelving space (5" on both ends), and I really want to be able to use that. I'd like to use their ventilated brackets with their melamine shelves, and these pins to keep the melamine shelves in place. The reason I want to use the ventilated brackets (as opposed to the solid brackets which are meant to go with these pins) is so that I can use the rods too, for hanging space. Does anyone know this?
Asked by: mcucinelli
The shelf pins cannot be used in a ventilated bracket. The solid melamine brackets are designed differently than the ventilated brackets, so they will be incompatible. Our Decor solid shelves, and our ventilated shelves both operate off of the ventilated bracket, so you may want to explore that avenue. If you would like further assistance with your custom design, please call us at 1-800-733-3532. One of our expert designers will be able to better assist you.

In which instance would use these plastic pins versus the metal ones?

Asked by: bv21
The Independent Shelf Pins are used for single shelves, whereas the metal Shelf Connectors are used for connecting multiple shelves side-by-side.

For two solid shelves side-by-side, what are pros/cons of using these pins on the outer brackets versus using the metal connectors?

If I have two solid shelves side-by-side, obviously I would use the metal shelf connectors in the middle bracket where the shelves meet. However, if I understand correctly (correct me if I'm wrong), I have the option of using either these shelf pins or the metal shelf connectors on the outside brackets. What are the pros/cons of each option?
