Cable Shelf Brackets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and Versatile - like me These shelves are awesome for aesthetic ambience especially in the workplace. be very mindful they have sharp corners and hang them above eye level so a distracted engineer doesnt kill themselves while dumping their trash. pricing is a steal! make sure to hire someone to hang them right otherwise it wont work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Look We used these brackets to add glass shelving over my husband's desk. Since he is a private pilot, we thought the brackets looked like furnishings for a plane and its hangar. We love the results!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cable Shelf Brackets Brackets are of decent quality. This shelving system is a bit hard to adjust, but overall pretty sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to hang Great alternative to traditional shelving and allows for a number of options. Definitely for a more modern decor. Minor issue: The wires end up taking up a large amount of space if you use shelves with a typical depth (8"). Not so good if you are trying to consolidate space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reminds me of the Golden Gate Bridge I just fell in love with these shelves the first time I saw them. They were so easy to install. I installed them into drywall using the Elfa 1/2" Dry Wall Anchors. I placed them over my bar that is in between my kitchen and living room to hold cookbooks and glass jars containing candy for decorating cookies and cupcakes. They are amazingly strong and great looking. I was really surprised at how fast it they went up. You will need a drill with 3/8" drill bit, phillip's head screw driver (preferably electric), hammer, pencil, ruler or yard stick, and level. I plan on buying some more of these shelves for my dining room as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly sturdy shelf So I wanted a shelf for above my bed to put my Epson moviemate projector (something else I highly recommend) on. It fits it perfectly and the shelf, to be hanging from wires, is surprisingly sturdy. I catch myself reaching up and jiggling or trying to jiggle the shelf. I can't get over how it doesn't move at all. I am easily entertained I guess. Besides that, it just looks awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Shelves We used 2 of these shelves, one above the other, to hold our computer and printer. It made a great desk in a tight space and we never had trouble with them. Easy to put up and sturdy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Sturdy Shelves We hung these shelves a few years ago, and they are terrific. We keep all our liquor on the shelves, and have never had any problems with them staying up. We have them mounted above a buffet, with wine glass holders mounted to the bottom, so our wine glasses hang down from the bottom of the shelves. I'd recommend to anyone.

Community Q&A

How long of a shelf can you hang on one set ?

Asked by: Flicker
The length of shelf would depend on what you are storing on it. For heavier items, we recommend a shelf no longer than 24" to 30".

kitchen shelves

I want to put these up as kitchen shelves. How big can I go here? Say a 48" board length wise board and depth of 11-12"? Or maybe even 56"? If so, at what point would I need a center (3rd) cable? I'm ready to purchase but don't want to wind up with 6-8 shelves that won't really work for my intended purpose of using as serious shelves that can bear daily use. For plates, glasses and glass bottle storage. These are very cool, I've been looking for weeks online and these are nice. Also, would a third bracket take the load up to say 150lbs.? Thank you!
Asked by: debbiek2017
We recommend having a bracket for every 24" to 30" of shelf length for adequate support.

Will this hold microwave?

Could this hold a microwave and if so what is the max width between the cables and depth ?
Asked by: Corndog
No, our 12" x 24" Cable Bracket with White Melamine Shelf is not large enough to support a microwave.

Is there a minimum height for the extended cables? Could the hanger be 12" above the shelf so that I could have a second shelf above?

Asked by: DG27510
The cables cannot be adjusted in length. You could mount another shelf above a previous one, but you do have to allot enough space for the cables to be taut.

Vertical space requirements for 2 shelves

If I want to hang two of these shelves, one above the other, and am using the shelves that are 12 x 24, how much vertical space would they take up from the bottom of the lower shelf to the highest point of the upper bracket?
Asked by: Julea
To hang two 12" Cable Shelf solutions one over the other, you should allow at least 30" vertically.

Electrical Components

I see that this says it is ideal for electrical components. I want to buy a few of these for my audio receiver, Playstation, router, etc that I store in a closet. But obviously I have power cords, stereo wire, and Cat-5 lines that I would need to run behind these shelves. Is that possible? Or Would I need to notch out holes in these shelves to be able to accomplish what I am trying to do? Thanks
Asked by: Dave16066
We would not recommend running wires and cables behind our Cable Brackets with a Melamine Shelf as you describe. Rather, we would encourage wires and cables be run over the sides of the shelf and cord management solutions used to control them. Some cord control solutions are suggested below.
