Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong and Sturdy but Install from the Back A wall of cookbooks arranged on Elfa solid shelving needed strong support to keep books from tipping or falling over. The solid book support, intermixed with beautiful baskets, fit the bill for book supports. First, I arranged book supports the way they're pictured on Container Store's website, installed on shelf front and pushed back. I don't like this look and it didn't work for smaller books because the shelf support doesn't extend far enough back to support smaller books. I then installed the shelf supports from the rear and they work perfectly! No unsightly addition on the shelf front and strong support for a plethora of book sizes. September 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Don't fit the decor shelves I may not have read the description, or other reviews, fully but was surprised to learn these don't fit the elfa decor shelves. Otherwise, I think I would have loved them. I will return them on my next visit to the container store. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pricey but Good and Sturdy These are really good bookends to use with Elfa shelves, especially if you need some bookend support at the midpoint or so of one of the shelves. They are made of solid metal and do not bend. I'd purchase more if the price wasn't so high, even with a good sale. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great addition to Daughter's Library Wall Purchased 3 sets of these supports. Work Great. They are very sturdy and will hold without falling over. I like the clean look of the white. They are very easy to install, move or adjust. The only negative is that I wish they were a little deeper so that they would fit farther back on the shelf. February 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ingenious I purchased the solid shelf book supports in addition to the clip bookends. I have a lot more flexibility by being able to slide the book supports anywhere I want along the shelf. These supports are held in place so much better than regular bookends which sometimes scoot where you don't want them. A perfect compliment to my Elfa shelving arrangement! It's exactly this kind of ingenuity that keeps me coming back to the Container Store! January 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sturdy and useful! The bookends are perfect for keeping things upright on the Elfa solid shelving. One thing is that on my 12" shelving, the book ends only go about halfway on the shelf - so the books have to be at the front edge of the shelf as opposed to being pushed all the way to the back - so there is some wasted space behind the books. March 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elfa Book Shelf System is incredible The system is well made and easy to put together. This is the third Elfa system we have purchased and we couldn't be more pleased. Working with Container Store Planners and customer service is a help and pleasure to work with. Assistance and answers are always handled effectively, efficiently and friendly and the product is top quality. Received one container of damaged items and customer service expedited the replacement of items immediately with no hassles. September 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great with ELFA solid shelving These solved a problem of binders on my office shelf falling over. I previously only had the book ends that attach to the standards. I have shelves full of client and product binders. If I removed one or more, the rest would fall. I added these book supports every 6 to 12" and problem solved. February 9, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by good support These worked very well at providing needed support for my heavy scrapbook photo albums on Elfa solid shelving. Have more of them used on additional shelves of books. A very good and sufficient solution for "leaning" items. February 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by classy These book supports look so nice in my book shelves, I am ordering another 2 sets while the 30% sale is on!! January 26, 2012

Will these fit decor shelves?

Otherwise what similar product could be used for decor shelves?
Asked by: johnld
These Book Supports are meant to fit on solid shelves, we do not carry a divider for the Decor Shelves.
