Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I bought these to organize "stacks" of clothing on my closet wire mesh shelves. So easy to install & work with. My closet looks great & is much more functional now. Clothes are not toppling over everywhere & I can actually see what I have! Should have bought these a long time ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paired w/ 20" shelf, makes a laundry sorter We recently installed Elfa in our laundry closet; the bottom shelf is 20" deep. I needed a system for sorting dirty laundry and I considered using separate laundry baskets, but none maximized our small space. I went back to CS and thought I'd try using just shelf dividers to create a sorter. I installed the dividers today and sorted the clothes into them; so far so good. If I have trouble with pieces of clothing falling out of place i might add bungee cord. We hesitated buying Elfa because of cost, but after just installing it in 3 spaces we realize it's a great product for our small house. Wish we would have bought it sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazed at the difference After installing our elfa system I thought I'd give these a try to wrangle my purses and tote bags. I am amazed at how much more space they create and how tidy that area of our closet looks now. They do not work with shelf liners so keep that in mind when planning things. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shelf Dividers The dividers are okay. I initially purchased them to divide purses in my closet. However, I think I am just going to utilize them to divide shirts and sweatshirts at the top of my closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shelf Dividers Originally, I had purchased these to separate my purses in my closet. Then I realized I could also use these dividers to separate my carry-on suitcases. The suitcases were lying on the top shelf of self standing chrome shelves in the garage. Using the dividers, I was able to provide vertical support for the suitcases and store them standing up, which allowed me to organize them all in one place...and free up the top of the other shelf unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shelf dividers! My closet is all wire shelving, and while I did not like the way it looked with the piles of clothes sort of rumpled together and falling over, I was hesitant to spend money on dividers. I finally took the plunge and ordered two just to try them -- and I love them! I am ordering more, enough for all the shelves. They fit perfectly onto my existing shelving (another thing that had made me hesitant to buy some) and immediately added a more polished look to my closet. I'm so happy I finally tried them after years of considering it! Yay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not work with shelf liners Let me start by saying I love my elfa closet! I went back to the store after it was installed to look into some additional accessories. Unfortunately it was the last weekend of the elfa sale and all the the sales people were very busy. While these fit the shelves well, they take up valued inches of shelf space and do not work with the plastic shelf liners. If there had been a free employee s/he probably would have told me this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wouldn't fit my Standard Wire Closet Shelves I gave this a good rating, because it's basically my fault the shelves didn't work. I bought the wrong size. So, if you don't have the Elfa shelving systems that the Container Store has and just have the standard white wire closet shelves, measure before you go! I know, common sense :( However, when I returned these, I decided not to try to find the right size (the store has a few different sizes) because there isn't much too them to help separate your stacks of clothes. Also, they weren't nearly tall enough for my purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple shelf help! I use these in my kids' closets to divide their shelves into sections; their smaller clothes get disorganized quickly, and having these to divide the space keeps the stacks upright!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended! I have been using elfa shelf dividers in non-elfa wire shelves The brand of shelving I have does not make shelf dividers and fortunately the elfa dividers fit perfectly and are quite sturdy! I have used the 12" dividers and just purchased the 20" dividers to work on another closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White ELFA Ventilated Shelf Dividers These shelf dividers make my personal closet space (we downsized to an apartment in our old age) much more attractive and accessible for storing linens. I drive 2 hours to get to Atlanta's Container Store. Anytime I am in Atlanta, the Container Store is a "must" visit. You provide great assistance from your staff and I love your products. They are so useful, handy, and well made. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Effective I purchased 3 of this item to separate linens of a shelf. Looks great and is working well to keep items separate. I do wish that they had a taller option, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Organizing Tool The Elfa Platinum Ventilated Shelf Dividers are great organizing tools for my Elfa freestanding shelving projects. The only concern I have is that you cannot use them in conjunction with the shelf liners. I have cut one of the liners and will see if this will finally work with both in place at the same time. Overall, I'm happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa products These shelf dividers were the last small part of a new pantry that replaced the junk that the builder installed. the new Elfa shelving is more efficient, more beautiful, much more useful, and more attractive than what the builder left us. We love Elfa and these shelf dividers were further evidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool My closets are too shallow for the Elfa drawers, so I was limited to shelves. I used multiple shelf dividers and was able to fit entire wardrobes for THREE children in one 44" wide closet! I was also able to adjust each space to the exact width of each stack of clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly right My multiple handbags are falling over each other and this divider does exactly what I needed! Solid construction and easy to install. It stays tight and upright on my shelves. A little bit pricy but worth it.

Community Q&A

Do you carry shelf divider units compatible with other wire shelving?

I had no control over the type of shelving the builder chose to install in our closets. Do you carry -- or do you plan to -- shelf dividers that would work with other types of shelf brands? I'm certainly not going to redo my entire home's closets in Elfa shelving just to be able to purchase dividers.

Can these be used on a ventilated shelf that has a liner?

Asked by: Kmurphy
I used them with the Translucent Elfa Ventilated Wire Shelf Liners by using a pair of scissors to trim about a 1-inch notch along the front and back of the liners. The trick is to leave the liner at full depth (12", 16", or 20") at each end of the shelf so the liner stays in place.

do these only work for elfa shelves?

I have wire shelves I want dividers for. I incorrectly purchased the solid shelf dividers and want to make sure my next purchase is appropriate for my needs. Appreciate your help!
Asked by: fashserendipity
These are only designed to work with elfa Ventilated Shelves, so we would not be able to guarantee that they would also work with other brands.
