Choose the rod length that most closely matches the width of your hanging space. Rods can be cut to length free of charge. Contact us for details. Add Closet Rod End Caps to both ends of the Closet Rod for the finishing touch - no closet is complete without them.

  • Use one Holder at each end of the Rod and at intervals of 36"
  • Add elfa Closet Rod End Caps to an elfa Closet Rod for a neat, finished look

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Great rod compared to many other brands. Very strong, yet can be cut with a metal hack saw. Does not appear scratched after a year of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finishing Touch While the extremely cost-conscious might find these unnecessary, they do give the visible ends of the elfa closet rods a nicely finished look. They're made well and they fit nicely into the closet rods too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from best for laundry room! bought whole elfa customized system for my laundry room- ilove the additional hanging room & storage it gave me!
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.
Date published: 2010-11-20
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but tricky great to be able to put a rod under any shelf. The new holders need the rod 1" longer than before to look right.

Is there a weight limit per rod?

Asked by: KelS
We do not have tested weight capacities for this product; when used with the elfa system, it will support the weight of your everyday wear.

How long should two rods be if wire shelves are 40" and 16"?

I am putting two wire shelves across a 59" wide closet. I have two shelves in the space, one 40" and one 16". How long should the rods underneath be? I want to have the option of starting with one rod under the 40" shelf and then expanding to put a clothing rod across the entire closet without recutting a rod.
Asked by: ClosetGear
Each hanging rod would need to be 1/2" shorter than the shelf. This would ensure the rods can "Join" together in the closet rod holder. Essentially, the rods would share the same closet rod holder where the shelves meet together.

When I order a custom cut, do I get both parts of the rod?

ex: I order a 2' rod with a 12" custom cut. Will I get both 12" pieces? Or do I have to order it twice?
Asked by: LNGL
FYI: I did not receive the other halves of my "scrap" so you will have to order each piece you need individually.

What is the difference between 2', 3', and 4' rods?

Is that the diameter of the rod? My closet design uses 2, 3, and 4' rods. Is that okay or will it look weird? Thanks!

Can rods and shelves be recut?

I would like to redesign our existing Elsa closet. Rather than purchasing new rods and shelves cut to length, can the previously purchased rods and shelves be recut to the new (shorter) length?

Previously purchased elfa items can be cut in a store. You can take the items to you nearest store with your new measurements.

What is the exact length of the 36" rod?

I believe it is 37" but wanted to double check. If I am making a 36" wide shelves with a rod hanging underneath ... do I need to buy a 4' rod and cut it down to 38" so I have an inch overhang over each end or is a 3' rod long enough to make this work.
Asked by: Johnny99
The 3' Closet Rod actually measures 37" in order to properly fit between the Rod Holders below a 3' Shelf.
