          They get the job done, and really shouldn't complain for the price they are. But, I would love it...

          They get the job done, and really shouldn't complain for the price they are. But, I would love it if they had more room in the base for the wires and wire nuts.

          So, I got this advice from a reviewer on Lowes and thought I should share. I bought them from Home Depot as it was closer to my house.
          I have already installed five of these shelves, four 17.6 x 7.75 and a 35.4 x 7.75. Pictures are attached. Here is what I did differently to make these shelves sturdy and avoid bending (drooping).
          First things first, avoid the plastic hardware that comes with it. The only hardware I used from this kit were the wooden screws for the stud I used for 2 of the 5 shevles. Where studs are not available, the plastic bolts are supposed to be used. Instead, spend a few more bucks and get you some toggle bolts. I got this 25 box set of 1/8in by 2in from home depot.

          These bolts cost $5.21 at Home Depot. They are metal and a lot stronger than the plastic things that come with the shelf. They also allowed me to only place 4 bolts into the bracket instead of using all 10 holes. *Note: toggle bolts are one time usage and make rather large holes. A little patching will fix that if you remove the shelf*
          Second, and may be the deal breaker for some, I put the shelves on upside down, requiring the two screws to attach the shelves to the bracket, to be placed on top. This places the stregnth on top of the metal bracket instead of pulling it below. Most of my holes were covered by the items I placed on the shevles. For the one screw that shows, I placed a little pure white paint on top of the hole and it blends in. As you can see from the pictures, I have many trophies on the shelves. Behind my Avengers bobble heads, I have a collection of Coke glasses. I haven't figured out what to do with them yet, so for now they are kept safe there. Point is, there is easily more than 10 pounds on my long shelf. Take my advice that I stole from a Lowes reviewer, and you to will find satisfaction in these attractive shelves.
          I will be installing two 23.6 x 10.2 very soon in the same way. Read Less
          Pros: Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great
          Cons: bad hardware
