Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest shelf I've ever put together The box said it was a 20 second shelf, and while it took me a little longer than that to screw in the wheels, it wasn't more than 2 minutes! The shelf is sturdy, rolls easily, and the design is so great because with the flip of two latches, the thing folds up accordion style and can be packed or moved quickly. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greasy portable shelving! I bought this so I could move my plants around easily for more sun and to water them. I tried another product and it just wasn’t sturdy enough. This works great! I would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this!! This shelf is amazing. I love that it folds down. I travel for work, and can only take what fits in my car. Sometimes I do not have enough shelving at the places I stay. This gives me more shelving to have the things I need readily available. And it fits perfectly in my trunk with my suitcases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 20 Seconds? This is advertised as the "20 Second" Folding Rack. It took 20 seconds just to take it out of the box, let alone set it. None the less, I am keeping in and it serves its purpose in my cleaning closet holding supplies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Purpose Table/Shelf All furniture should be designed like this origami three rack. It is so well made and designed. You can put in up in a minute or so. All you have to do in screw in the legs. I like the white because i use it in my spare bedroom. I use it for a portable tv stand. Luckily my tv fit. The only thing I would suggest to the designers is to have a sold insert to use for books or other objects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Little Contraption This is an easy and versatile addition to my storage organization. It can be a stand-still cart, or it can be wheeled around. The wheels can lock in place or be mobile. Easiest installment EVER!! I think all I had to do was take it out of the box and attach the wheels. Easily stored for when it's not needed too! It just folds up to about a foot or so in width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Folding Rack on Wheels--STURDY Love to be able to move things with ease. As a senior, I don't have help when cleaning and like to be able to move my furniture easily when needed. The construction and weight was well designed by Origami.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Well made. Sturdy. Great for using when you want to sort stuff out using a shelf that places things vertically rather than horizontally (taking less space) and then folding it up and keeping it for its next use. It will save you a lot of time, in sorting stuff anywhere in home or office. I used it to clean my garage....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This rack could be used as a bar cart or extra storage for kitchen appliances that can easily be moved away when necessary. A great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, easy to use and good value I was looking for temporary shelving that was easy to assemble, disassemble and store and these fit the bill. They are a snap to put together and I love that there are no shelves, posts or other parts to keep track of - you literally just fold and unfold the unit to assemble and disassemble. For portable shelves, they are surprisingly solid and are very sturdy. They are fairly weighty, but they roll smoothly on the wheels in the assembled or unassembled positions, so transport is easy. The only improvement I would suggest is to make the shelves solid or mesh - the spacing of the wire limits the type of items that can be placed on the shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and versatile shelf for a great price! This shelving unit was a great buy for the price. Very well made and easy to put together! No tools needed. I had my 86 year old dad put it together and he was joking that it took longer to read the instructions than it did to put the shelf together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these so much I want to get more! I bought two of these for my home office. They were easy to set up, are very well constructed and durable, and look absolutely fantastic. The casters make them so easy to move around and the fact that they can be folded up for moving or storage is a huge plus. I wish I could put them in every room of my house! I plan to get more in the future. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small laundry area! Needed something low (so I could still hang wet clothes above) and narrow to put next to a stacked washer and dryer (30/31 in. wide space) and this was perfect! Not only does it collapse but it also has wheels (you can also use without them) so I can move it easily when/if I need to get to the hot and cold water valves for the washer in the back. Easy to set up and seems very sturdy. Bottom shelf (13.5 in.) can even hold paper towels...tall shelves! Top one is higher (about 15 in.) Bottom shelf has a crossbar so it might restrict what you put there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection LOVE! Easy to assemble, great quality, heavy and not wobbly, just perfection in a cart and the bins that fit on top (shown in catalog) are also fantastic. Don't hesitate to purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origami 3-Shelf Folding Rack I checked several stores on-line and in-person to find a sturdy but not heavy and easy to move utlility shelf/rack with wheels. I live in a small apartment and needed a shelf to store my fans, heater, and other items which would have adequate height between the bottom and middle shelves. The white-coated steel material is very nice-looking and no tools are needed to set it up or take it down since it folds easily. This shelf is perfect for me and I'm very happy I purchased it. I think the larger size would also work well if you have a larger living space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I luv this shelf! This shelf is the best ever! I am recently retired and needed to reorganize my 'craft room' to allow more space to do my creative projects. I needed a smaller shelf unit to display my elephant collection and my smart TV. The old shelf was horrible. This is perfect! Doesn't take up alot of room, I'm able to move it around easily for cleaning. This makes my workspace bigger and I want more! This was my first purchase at Container Store and I luv this store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origami folding shelf is a winner i have the larger version of this product and love it, so when the need arose for some sort of cart to hold a towel warmer in my salon business I went for the three shelf folding rack. So easy to set up, and sturdy and attractive. A real winner. Plus i got 15% off with the click and pick up promo.

Install Legs in place of Casters

I purchased this shelf and would like it to remain stationary. I live in a travel trailer and I use this shelf in the outdoors. I need the self to be off the ground but the casters get dirt in them. Where can I find replacement parts of stationary legs (using the specifications needed to screw into the shelf)?
Asked by: chazguard
You can buy "flat feet" made by Origami that are compatible with this unit on another major shopping site. I don't if they will work for the purpose you want, but they are designed to make the unit more stable and can be adjusted to make it more level if it's on an uneven surface.
