Does Rubbermaid offer some sort of plywood or similar lightweight shelf liner? Also some sort of hardware for undershelf lighting such as the type you see lining the walkways of airplanes or in movie theaters? About the only complaint I hear from these systems is about clothes/fabrics placed directly onto the wire shelves because of the dents the wires create due to the weight of other items (for example, the bottom sweater in a stack of sweaters). Of course, I can poke around the hardware store and conjure something up myself, but it would be nice if this was an option to buy. Also, it would be nice if the closet had interior lighting. A track or whatever under the shelves to mount it would be great! P.S. - Those who complain about the installation instructions actually need to read them first! My honey is an engineer, which means he tried to install without reading them. Once he read them, the installation was fast and easy peasy. His main concern which the directions don't address involved ensuring the vertical things you put the shelving brackets brackets (not sure what you call those things) were in the studs.

Installed a Linen Shelf Kit and would not recommend it. Flimsy, very poor instructions. You don't even include what size drill bit to use.

I bought 2 of the 4-8 foot kits and wanted to add more shelves. I didn't realize that you can't just buy extra pieces and the other systems are not compatible.

I'm in the military and we move every two years and this is one of the best products I've purchased for my new rental home. Our rental doesn't have a pantry and there's little storage. We were looking for ideas to add shelf space in the laundry roon and came across the Rubbermaid Closet Kit at our local home improvement store. After looking at the display in the store and surfing the Rubbermaid website, we decided to take the plunge and buy the kit. It was refreshing to have everything needed in one box (including all the screws), so no return trips to the store! I have some parts left over because our laundry room is small, but I'd rather have more parts than I need as opposed to making two (or more) trips to the store. I don't like drilling into the wall, but we only needed nine screws to install the kit. Installation was EASY! Just hang the header rail and go. Plus, we can easily just remove everything when we move out, so we don't have to leave our great closet kit behind when we move. Thanks Rubbermaid for a great product.

Look, it's some metal shelves so not super sexy, but these have been the best metal shelves I've used. Very strong, all bars are full of clothes and holding with no problems. Installed in our new condo; walk-in closet and kid's closet. Had no issues, bought some of the extras like the shoe rack and the slide-out pant pipes. Racks are great, pants thing is OK, wish they slid out a little farther. Plan to finally get a set for the front hall closet as well.

These are the best closet organizers I have used and have recommended them to all my friends. Installation is a breeze the only problem is I spend hours reconfiguring the units! I love how you can buy the starter unit then add pieces as your needs change. I have installed these in all three bedrooms so far and will slowly do all closets in the house. The best part is mixing and matching between all the rooms. I also like how I can hang my sons shelves and rods low for him to get his own clothes and still have shelves up high to keep items out of his reach. So far the units have stood up to a two year old swinging like a monkey off the bars and climbing the shelves. At first I was hesitant to pay the price for these units but in the end it is worth the cost. Anyone with kids knows the value of having an organized closet!

Like this product but.....

Bought (2) 3-6ft kits because it suited my needs best and it looks nice but, it was missing some parts & the store does not carry replacement parts. So far I have not been able to get them. Also, plastic anchors are cheap and I have doubts as to their reliability, some screws didn't screw in tight and I fear they will pull right out of the wall. Kit should have included metal toggle bolts instead of the plastic anchors for better stability/reliability. Additionally, I need some extra shelves and have not been able to find those either. Ridiculous, replacement parts should be readily available. I shouldn't have to buy another complete kit to get replacement or extra parts. So, for the issues raised above I think this product is overpriced and would not recommend it unless you can live with those drawbacks.

Bad consumer experience

Hope you don't need extra parts or plan to expand. You will have to buy a whole new kit. Would not purchase again.

This kit is AMAZING. Really. It far exceeded my expectations. Product appearance is good...not high-end of course but very good. The finished product itself (fully organized closet) is great, but it is deeper than that... I am thoroughly impressed with everything from the packaging on down the line. It is CLEAR Rubbermaid has thought everything through from start to finish and that deserves to be commended. It is packaged neatly and efficiently with all pieces easy to locate and access quickly. The instructions are simply stated and to the point. Rubbermaid made the process of putting this thing together simple and easy. The info provided (from the layout suggestions for each size closet on the outside of the box to the graphic listing of the exact tools you will need) is as efficient as can be! Bravo to the design team of these kits because truly this is nothing short of a BRILLIANT product design. And I mean that to the fullest extent of the word brilliant. I am very happy with my purchase of the 6-10ft Closet Kit and will recommend to anyone trying to organize a closet that there is no other way to go for functionality, ease and price. Well done Rubbermaid!!

Difficulty getting replacement parts

Customer review by AWBT

2.0 stars 5/3/2016 by AWBT

The kits come with basic options. If you want to add to or extend, you have to purchase additional rails/parts. Well, no one sells these parts locally. Why would you sell this product and not sell replacement parts. Just not right. So now we have to order the parts and wait for them to be shipped. We are living in boxes. If we had not already attached 5 rails to the walls, we would be returning all. Nice idea, but poor execution. Now I am worried about how easily we will be able to add accessories in the future.

I bought the FastTrack sliding drawers. The instructions were awful; the pictures were of a very small section for each step so that it was difficult to figure out what to do. They need to be of a bigger section so that one gets the overall picture of each step. Attaching the bracket to the wall thing with the frame attached was impossible, even with a hammer. Finally the frame came off the bracket and then the bracket easily slipped into place. I then reattached the frame to the bracket, after losing the washer in the bottom of the closet. I bought two drawers, one was enough misery for me. Returning the other and the extra shelves and shoe racks.

I love my new closet! This kit was easy to install and looks good. I took a couple breaks to watch the baseball game so it took about 4 hours. My husband is very impressed! This kit is as good or better than the ELFA system..actually I think it's better and sturdier. I did my closet for approx. 1/5 what it would have cost to use the other brands kit.I did not care for the drywall anchors, i don't have a lot of strength in my hands and so I used some other ones I had in my tool kit.Once you get it all screwed into the's not going anywhere. There are so many ways you can configure a small closet because its so versatile.

Once you find the studs in your walls and hang the horizontal mounting bracket this is quite an easy system to install. Also the ability to just move shelves or add hanging rods is fantastic. However I don't like the "no cutting" approach that Rubbermaid is using in this series. You have an A and a B shelf that will overlap (one is slightly deeper than the other) and I think it makes the closet look a little unfinished. The trim pieces that cover the last few inches of the horizontal mounting bracket tend to fall off. Also there are no end caps for these trim pieces so when viewed from the side the closet looks unfinished.

My wife decided to change closet around several weeks after installing a kit. I went to try to find more supports only to find you have to buy another kit. I also could have used some connectors for the supports. If the products were made available without having to buy an entire kit would have been helpful. The store has supports that look the same but when you get them home they are a different depth and cannot be used with the kits.
