White 4" elfa utility Shelf/Trays is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So useful. I have several of these and use them as trays to hold thread spools, re-ink bottles for stamp pads, small glitter jars, and many other things. I'm crazy about these..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient size I first picked one of these up in the clearance section because it had a little scratch. Now I have 7 on the side wall of my pantry, and will have 6-7 in my master closet. See pictures. They are the perfect size for my cookbooks, and obviously hold a lot because I have each of them full with books. I also have various stock pots and large cooking bowls on them. In my master closet, they'll be the perfect depth for hats, purses, jewelry trays. etc. So far I've always used them as shelves, but you can also mount them upside down so you have a lip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love these little shelves! They are just the right depth for little things and do not interfere with your works pace since are not deep - so all those little things you need are right there, close at hand, but out of your way so you can work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Find And What I Needed I needed a shelf that would not project out into the wall from the back of my elfa desk - no more than 3 to 5 inches. It is to hold the power strip and other wirings so it won't be on the floor or on the desk top. Due to lack of space, my desk is 36 inches wide and couldn't waste desk space. Plus didn't want the wirings on the floor because of small children always wanting to hide under the desk when playing.. This was just what I needed. My many thanks to the designer of this shelf/.tray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful. I painted the garage floor and installed Elfa shelving and utility components. Very happy and keep going back for more components.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wheel Reinvented. I've had all kinds of shelving for my studio, but these have to be the best shelving for artist and crafty people. The shelf is designed to cup-hold small items but it can also support large bulky item (like paintings). I found the slim profile of the shelf great for organizing an easily messy space, by keeping everything just one item deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-use shelf I bought this shelf the day it came into the Frisco store to use with my "At Home Specialist" designed plan for laundry room storage. It is perfect! I had modified my plan, with the original 12" ventilated shelf extending out from the wall and interfering with opening my washer. The 10" shelf just fits without interference.

Community Q&A

what is the width.

u offer two sizes but you dont say how wide they are. I ended up ordering the wrong size because it does not indicate. is there one that is 30" wide? obviously I will have to bring back what I ordered. but I still think its pretty shortsighted of you guys not to indicate how wide these shelves are. please add that information for the future. its my fault for trusting you were making them to be equally wide as the solid shelves. one I got appears to be 36" wide. whats the other width?
Asked by: dhope
They are made to match the length of the utility boards (2' or 3') . the size is stated with the product title on the online order form except it's marked with an "h" as in height, which doesn't make much sense because it's referring it's width or length, depending how you see it...(which is also confusing)

Can these shelf/trays be used directly on the utility board?

Can this tray be put directly on the utility boards? I have a wall mounted utility board and would like to add this shelf to it.
Asked by: Wisconsin72
These trays are meant to be used on our hanging standards and will not fit on the boards. However, we do carry board trays which will work on our utility boards.

How much weight can these hold?

Asked by: Mirminatir
There is no set weight that our Elfa items can hold because there are many different ways to install them. Please contact our Customer Solutions department at 800-733-3532 if you have any further questions.

Can this be installed on the utility board?

I have two of the 12" elfa utility board trays that go right into the utility board itself. Can these larger ones be used in the same manner? The description makes it sound like it needs to go into the standards themselves, but the image of the hooks looks the same as the other tray I have. Just trying to understand before placing an order.

Can the 3 foot wide shelf span a standard going down the middle?

I have three standards hanging 18 inches apart. Could I get one 3 foot wide tray to span across (utilizing just the first and third standard for the brackets and bypassing the second), or would I need to get two 18 inch shelves and put them side by side (utilizing all three standards)?
Asked by: R0guer
Yes, one 3' wide 10" elfa utility Shelf/Trays can be used to span across a center Hang Standard as you have described.

What is the exact outer width of the 2' shelf? Is it exactly 24" or 23.5"?

The previous homeowners must have bought this shelf/system, because it looks identical and they have some "Elfa utility hooks". We want to order more shelves. However, I measured the shelf/tray and it is 23.5" across, currently hooked into the inner slots of the hanging standards. I'm hoping I can just order a couple more of these, but the 2' measurement has me concerned.

Can this be used with regular track and new utility board?

We have several Elfa shelving units. Can this replace a regular shelf? We have the new utlity board (like a peg board). Can this be used below the board? It seems more useful than the shorter tray we have right now. Thank you.
Asked by: Kailykay
This product can be mounted to elfa standards, and placed beneath an elfa utility board.Please contact our customer solutions department, or LiveChat with us if you need additional assistance.

Can two elfa Utility Shelves share the same standard?

I want to purchase two 2' shelves. How many standards will I need to purchase?
Asked by: Kennnnn
Yes, our elfa utility Shelf/Trays can be placed side-by-side sharing an elfa Standard. If this is the set up you are looking to create, you'll need 3 elfa Easy Hang Standards.
