Add Closet Rod End Caps to both ends of the Closet Rod for the finishing touch - no closet is complete without them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but.... The closet rods are strong and fit the rod brackets perfectly. BUT...they are never longer than 4 feet. So if you have a closet with walls not in 4 foot increments, you have a problem. Since the rod brackets do not allow hangers to slide past them, just putting sections together do not work smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Elfa closet system Rating the platinum closet rods - these rods (with the end caps) are fantastic rods compared to what I had previously in my closet. The hangars move easily across them. Great quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality These closet rods are strong and really smooth, allowing all types of hangers to glide easily. The end caps give a nice clean finish. They work well in the laundry as a "drying rod" for placemats and other such items when there isn't ample flat surface for drying. The rod is large enough in diameter to not leave a crease in the piece being dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa is (Pretty) easy to hang with! We are just finishing 5 closets! We had a pro hang the top racks but completed the rest...ourselves. Best tip is to install the shelves on the top first , work top down and really watch your spacing. If you are adding fascia, they can be great spacers. Measure every time as hang standards can shift. We easily cut shelves with short metal blades, be super careful! Results are more than we ever expected! We are extremely pleased with the results and love the Container Store's staff for all their assistance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love my closet, but.... i recently did my walk-in closet in platinum elfa. i love it. the components were extremely easy to install and are extremely durable. the only issue i had with the elfa components was with the 2 ft closet rods. they are shown on the website as 2 ft rods without any additional measurements. i needed one a bit smaller so i ordered a custom cut rod at 23 inches. it was too short. the 2 ft closet rods are actually 25 inches. the container store is a great company, but they should put exact measurements on their items. they did send me a replacement 2 ft rod, custom cut to 24 inches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Elfa! We use Elfa shelving in our home office closet. I am a photographer and use the closet rod to hold the tissue paper we use for packaging. It keeps the paper from getting wrinkled and makes it easy to grab a sheet or two. Elfa shelving is great. I'd love to put it in every room of my house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not just for closets This item, along with rod holder brackets were a finishing touch to my recent kitchen upgrade. I used the bar as a paper towel holder , custom cut to the same specifications as our ventilated shelves. It has been fun creating a custom solution that fits our space needs perfectly.

Date published: 2010-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closet Rods These are fine; the end caps, not so much, because one is loose in the closet rod, which means that either the end cap was too small or the rod was too big. Quite annoying as the other cap went in with a satisfying snugness. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, sylish rod that works perfectly with the elfa closet systems. Hangers slide easily on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from recommend with reservations This is the only item that can be used as a closet rod for elfa so by default you have to recommend it for that, but beware of the following gotchas..... I put in 36" shelves and ordered 36" rods. Rods are actually 37" to fit the holders properly when you're installing only ONE 36" section. For a run of two or more sections, the end rods need to be cut down by 3/4" and the middle sections by 1-1/2" for everything to fit properly. This isn't taken into account by their onsite design software. If you're ordering online you are unable to specify partial inch measurements. I had to make return trips with specific instructions to trim. Also note (this is minor) that the labels on these rods leave the most residue of any. Have plenty of goo gone on hand.

Community Q&A

What is the distance between the wall and the rod if to use 12 and 16 inches deep shelfto hang the rodunder?

I have a tiny closet where I want to put a shelf with a rode underneath. I would prefer 12 inch deep shelf, but not sure if regular cloth hangers will hang normally on the rod? I'm concerned that there will be not enought space for cloth hangers.
Asked by: AnastasiaAAA
Placing an elfa Closet Rod below a 12" deep elfa Ventilated Shelf will allow ample room for hangers and the clothing hung on them to hang freely.

Remove end caps

How do you remove the end caps from the closer rod?
Asked by: LinzM
Gently insert a flat-head screwdriver in between the Closet Rod and the Cap - this should easily remove the Cap.

Do I need the top shelf?

I don't have enough height in my closet to use the top shelf…so I was wondering if I need it? Could I just buy the brackets and hang the rod from the brackets without the shelf? Or is the top shelf needed for stability?
Asked by: wlooper
The top shelf is necessary, as it creates stability for the rod and the closet rod holders while they are suspended from the brackets.

Can I get a closet rod which is longer than 4 ft, such as 6 ft long? It will be supported every 2-3 ft, as recommended.

Asked by: AliZ
Our longest elfa Closet Rod is 48". To create a longer hanging space, the rods can be placed side by side, sharing closet rod holders. For assistance in creating a closet design, please contact our Customer Solutions Department at 1-800-733-3532.

Can you secure the rods?

Is there any way to secure the rods to the hangers so that the rods can't slip around (and possibly fall off?

Can I use these rods in a closet that isn't an Elfa closet?

I have a wood rod that's been replaced twice now, and the second is starting to bow and I'm afriad that one of these times it'll break like that last one did. I'm looking for a rod that's sturdy, can take a lot of weight (it will be holding all my shirts; long and short). I live in an apartment so I can't do a lot of remodeling (not without the owners permissions; and I'm having trouble trying to get him to do minor repairs).
Asked by: cgem
These rods can be purchased separately and used in non-elfa closets. They measure 1" in diameter.

What is maximum distance between rod holders to properly support?

I know typically it's configured for a closet rod holder every 24 inches. However, I'd like to know what is maximum distance acceptable. Ie. 36 inch apart?
Asked by: Mtech8
The elfa Ventilated Shelf Brackets, which support the Rod Holders, should be placed no farther than 36" apart on center.
