Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tidy These stack easily, and the open mesh means no dusty bottoms-of-trays to try to clear out. My goal is to empty them -- when I can see THROUGH the stack, I'll be so happy! A fun motivation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Letter Trays I liked the look of these White Mesh Letter Trays when I saw them in the store. When I got them home, I liked them even more! I put them in my "craft room" to help corral all the papers I had piled up from recent projects. They connect together well and securely. Just what I needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I used a dozen to sort different types of paper. They are almost high enough to hold a whole ream, but not quite. Whole reams can go on the top of the stack. Perfect when using multiple colors or weights of paper. Clip together nicely. Lots of bang for the buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! These were perfect color, size, construction and overall usage. More sturdy than I could tell from the picture. I had purchased them at a much higher cost at a local store and these were the exact same product at that perfect price. Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great office organizers I bought these to clean up the mess in my home office. I use different reams of paper and these hold them very well. In the bottom one, I have my MiniMac cpu & wireless router. I can thread the wires through the side of it and it looks so much neater. These trays are very sturdy. I searched online and these were the cheapest price on these particular trays. I love the "landscape" my work surfaces are wider than they are deep. Great product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy I have two trays and stack them in our home office. They look great and work well even though the bottoms of the trays have imperfections like a small dent and a couple areas with bumps that are a bit scratchy. For $3.99 each on sale...good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, just what they say I love that these stack so easily, but I do wish their "footprint" was a little smaller. The mesh is decently sturdy, but will bend. The ones I received were in very good condition, but I have seen this same product inside retail stores and they can get decently banged up and bent. I would recommend them, but not for hard duty. They were perfect for my printer stand and I have four stacked up to hold reams of paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stacking Storage Solution I purchased several of these to stack. I store various office needs like paper, mailing envelops and file folders. They are sturdy but light weight and I love the industrial look of the silver metal. An excellent bargin as well. I have matching magazine files and they look great together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! These are sturdier than I expected and the price is great! They fit perfectly inside a cabinet in my office and I love how they lock together on top of each other. I've stacked them five high to sort my labels and printing papers. This has made my life SO much easier!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design could be improved Design of this product could be improved by including mesh on sides rather than potentially bendable metal poles. Such an improvement would make it sturdier and more stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item! I'm using this as a temporary fix to my messy unorganized desk. I like that it's stackable, but even more so that it's not super expensive! Great for college kids like myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Additin to theSuper Sorter The Mesh tray is a perfect addition to the Mesh Super Sorter. These trays organized my files and important documents that I use daily. Stacking the trays saves a lot space on my desk top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jealous coworkers I purchased several of the silver mesh letter trays after searching for a style that would fit amid the modern styling of my office building. When stacked together, these letter trays are beyond sturdy. The mesh trays are unobtrusive sitting on my desk and recede into the back ground amid blonde wood and glass finishing. They keep me organized without screaming 'HEY, I'M AN INBOX'. They are simple to stack and 'lock' into each other. At first, I expected some issues because of the mesh. I'm pleased to say I couldn't be happier with these trays. They keep my neat and clutter free, but allow me access to the things I need during a busy day. Oh... and my coworkers are so jealous. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great for stacking magazines, files, folders, etc. and a perfect fit for the home office desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very clean looking office system. I've been able to stack it 10 high for all my to-do's, easily sorting specific papers without cluttering my precious desk space. I do wish each tray had a place to easily attach a label. Typical labels do not adhere well to the mesh, but the mesh is a much lighter cleaner look than wood and more elegant than plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BSET PURCHASE- I HAVE 2 SETS Best thing about product is that the matching letter sorter locks in place on top of the trays. Stack up 3 trays and top with the sorter and your desk will be uncluttered in seconds! I have twos sets on my desk and have never been happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I have purchased 5 of these trays. They are sturdy and fit nicely together. I stacked all five on top of each other. My husband told me to flip the whole thing over and you have one more spot on top for storage. They look very nice and I am happy with the product

What are the exact measurements of the "usable" tray space? I need to fit a 14" X 9" X 2" plastic art bin in each tray.

Asked by: Rstar
The usable tray space is 13-1/4" W x 10" D
Answered by: maarechar
Date published: 2020-08-03

Does the 15" W measurement include the outer clips or just the shelf space? If not, what is the width including the clip extensions?

I'm trying to fit 3-4 trays inside my desk cabinets (16" W x 11" D x 15" H) to utilize wasted space!
Asked by: Rstar
The 15" width does include the clips.
