Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool shelf Got this to put in a narrow space (30") between bed and wall, too narrow for a bookcase. Installed it myself! Mounted a shallow (7 1/4") shelf at neck (rather than shoulder or head - ouch!) height with rounded edges and it works great. Holds current reading, a storage cube, clock, etc., and I have more floor room - and compliments on my stylish shelf, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These brackets were easy to hang and adjust, and they look simple and elegant. They were exactly what I needed for my application, where there was no space underneath for traditional brackets. They come with a chart for how much vertical space they need, but for my 12" shelves I needed about 12" above the shelf. A narrower shelf would require more vertical space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shelves I had a handyman put them up and he said it was pretty easy - they look great and hold a lot of stuff. Love these shelves!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could have been useful... ...except the most critical piece of information was not included in the product description: how long is the cable and can it be adjusted? I wanted to hang this shelf, 6" wide, below another shelf. Because the cable can't be shortened, the higher shelf has to be 16" or so above, which didn't work for me. I'll use the apparatus somewhere #and pickup at a local store was easy#, but I wouldn't have ordered it if the dimensional information, which came with the item, had been in the product description!

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 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!

Community Q&A

If hanging an 8" deep shelf, what is the height of the shelf hung with the brackets?

Asked by: EmmaG
I wish I'd paid more attention in school like JG in DC did! In any case, I just used these (fantastic) brackets to hang a glass shelf that is 24 inches in length, and 6.5 inches narrow. And the vertical measurement from the top of the fastener to the bottom of the shelf is 17 inches. I hope this helps to at least give you an idea?

My glass shelf is 93” long x 9-1/2” deep x 1/2” thick”. How high above the shelf will the brackets be mounted?

I want to hang it above my kitxhed counter and above the range, yet below the upper kitchen cabinets. Space above the 30” wide range is ample, yet the rest of the space is limited under the upper cabinets. Is there some other brackets you could recommend for the space under the upper cabinets? I was thinking these brackets above the range will carry the weight of the rather heavy shelf.
Asked by: Kayco
Kindly reread the question, as that response did not provide an answer. The detailed secondary question asks if I can combine these brackets with something like the pelican clips for the additional length.

What is the length of the cable?

I need to hang more than one shelf. How much space do I need to leave between shelves (vertically) in order to do that?
Asked by: LizzieC
It appears that the cable is 41" so the height will vary with the depth of your shelf -- it forms a triangle, so the deeper the shelf = less vertical height. A previous Q&A said a 12" depth = 12.5" height, and that seems to check out; I am looking at an 8" depth, and calculate I will need about 14.5" height. (The formulas I used: a + b + c = 41 and a2 + b2 = c2 -- I used a = shelf depth, then plugged in logical values for b as the height and c as the hypotenuse (the length from the outer end of the shelf to the bracket).)

How much does the shelf weigh? I'm thinking about putting it in my travel trailer.

Asked by: AmyMc
The shelf and brackets weigh just over 6 lbs. altogether.

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.

How do the cables attach to the wall?

Asked by: Suze0619
For mounting on wood studs, we recommend using the screws included in the package and a 1/8" Drill Bit. For drywall, we recommend 3/16" x 3" Toggle Bolts (sold separately) and a 1/2" Drill Bit.
