Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for freestanding shelves These solve the problem of things being pushed too far back on Elfa freestanding shelves and falling down the back. The also serve to keep those pesky cords pushed down. Well worth their slight cost as that perfect finishing touch. If you are using freestanding Elfa as a room divider with shelves on both sides these are a must have for each side and each row of shelves! Low cost for a great solution!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You will need a glue remover It fits perfectly and makes the shelves look good. However the label stickers do not come off as easily as on the rest of the merchandize. Container Store should either change the glue being used on the stickers or provide a packet of glue remover with these pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Magnet Bar These make the best magnet bars. In my study, I stuck a couple over my elfa desk to hold notes. In my daughters' room, I have a set of 4, placed under their elfa shelves, to hold artwork. The nice thing is that you can use these bars with any type of elfa shelving, not just the freestanding kind. The upright bars just have to be 2 feet apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to hang pictures and notes. I have the Elfa shelving system. The one wall has the desk with shelves above it. I use the back stop bar with Magnutz's to hold notes. The other wall has shelves around a lateral file with printer on it. I rotate pictures of family on the back stop bars with Magnutz's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Critical Piece The backstop bars are critical - now we can push books and videos all the way back against the stops and even put a second row onto the shelves if need be!

Community Q&A

Is this available in 30"?

Is this available in 30" length to match with 30" shelves?
Asked by: paw1
This product only comes in 24'' and 36'' to compliment our ventilated and decor shelves.

Will these fit over top of standards?

I'm planning a space that has 18" spacing on the standards, and was wondering if i could use a 36" long back stop bar. So it would be mounted on the end standards but have to sit over top of the middle one.
Asked by: loriannav
Our elfa Back Stop Bar must be placed between (not over or behind) Hanging Standards or freestanding Uprights spaced at 24" or 36" increments.

How to use with 30" solid shelves?

I've just installed a 60" set of Elfa shelves over my desk (i.e., two side-by-side 30" shelves, hung with three standards). I'd like to purchase a couple of backstops for the shelves, but I gather that they aren't available in 30" lengths?? And with the hooks on the two ends, I assume they can't be cut to size the way that the top tracks or hanging standards can be. What to do?
Asked by: Elfaficionada
Unfortunately we do not carry the backstop bars in a 30" width, they currently only come in 24" and 36".

How wide are these bars?

I see you can get them in either 2 or 3" heights, but it doesn't detail how long each one is so I can space shelf support bars at the appropriate distance before receiving them.
Asked by: Knoid
The dimensions listed refer to the width of the elfa Back Stop Bar, side to side. They come in 2 feet and 3 feet widths.
