"I am using these shelves for a large pantry, after tearing out some old, painted wood shelves. I love the clean look of the chrome and the versatility since I can roll them around and change the look completely."
"We bought these in-store. The box is quite heavy, but once you put it together you see why - - it's very sturdy and well made. I have priced these out from a number of different sellers and Costco has the best deal on them by far."
Pros: ease of assembly, sturdiness, wheels or fixed option, backsplash stops things falling behind
Cons: not good for small items
"Bought one last weekend to replace a plastic shelving unit in our garage, and this has been fantastic. Easy to put together (but pay attention to the "up" directions of the plastic bits that hold each shelf in place), and very sturdy. Took less than 45 min to assemble, and that includes the time I screwed up parts. Love having the option to fix in place or use the casters. Would buy again in a second!"
Cons: not as good a quality s the first one i bought
"I bought this product when it was first brought to Costco and loved it and been using it for long time. So I order this new set which is ok for what I need it but not as good a quality as the first. For some reason this is true with all costco products!!!
Any rate the other factor I did not like was the fact that I had to pay shipping... never did that before buying costco on-line!!"
"I have purchased 9 of these adjustable racks for both my factory and home. They are fully adjustable & strong. The ability to use the racks with either wheels or fixed bottom stops offers more flexibility in their use. The recent addition of the back stop is a plus when placing smaller items on the shelves especially when there is no solid wall or material behind the unit.
The value is as solid as the construction of the solid metal rack."
"This system is strong and flexible. I have four of these along the wall of my garage all on wheels. I can wheel them out to clean underneath or to just reorganize as my storage needs over the years change. I place large items on it directly or get clear plastic containers to place smaller items. It currently holds all my holiday decorations, patio cushions, paint, tools, toys, etc. Even after five years, it may be a little dusty but everything held up."
"Exactly as advertised. As one person wrote, don't worry about the plastic shipping disks - they are not needed for assembly. I did have a package of the fasteners that the shelves slip over to lock in place arrive crushed which prevented me from installing the last shelf. I wrote Costco customer service, got a quick reply that a new package was in the mail and by end of the week, I had several packages! Great customer service (which was one of the main reasons I chose Costco to begin with - they did not disappoint)."
Cons: wheels not strong and tend to bend if moved with w
"I have about 10 units I use them in my storage unit, pantry and back poarch. I find them very useful. the only thing I would like to see is a cover to keep dust out even if it were to be an after market excessary to be purchased."
"I have 3 of these in my garage. 2 units I bought over two years ago and they are still looking great, the last unit I bought one year ago, and even though it looked identical, several of the shelves show considerable rust and will need replacement. I guess, a change in manufacturing quality? Assembly is fairly easy though and they offer good value, except for the rust.."
"well thought out construction -not cheaply made and certainly does NOT look cheap - snag-free and no sharp ends to cut hands- stylish, sturdy, wonderful chrome-look - we purchased 2 as closet storage shelves - this can be split as 2 3-ft high shelves, and they give you enough black ends to top off the 2 sets but only give you 4 regular "feet" pieces so you'll need to use the 4 wheels (included) to finish the 2nd set - I also recommend to assemble the bottom 3 tiers first then add the top-poles if you're going to go for the 6 ft look ( saves a LOT of time/ energy) AND also to fit the back guards on the shelves first. And by the way, don't be concerned with the black plastic rings that fall apart during shipping - they're only used as buffers betw shelves during shipping and will be discarded"
Pros: great customer service, sturdy, easily reconfigurable
"These are great shelves. I have a chrome set on wheels and a gray finish version I just bought from Costco online. The most recent set was purchased for extra storage in my garage. I put it in a configuration where the units are hooked together which spans most of the length of my garage. It is sturdy yet easy to reconfigure based on my needs.
With the last purchase, there was one shelf which had been damaged. I contacted Trinity directly and sent them a photo of the bent shelf. They responded immediately, apologized for the inconvenience, and immediately shipped a replacement shelf entirely at their expense. Excellent customer service!"
Cons: horrible casters, additional casters not available
"I really like these shelves. They are easy to setup and are strong. Having items stored on wheels is great -- you can put shelves double or triple deep and move them out when needed.
The casters and the threaded inserts, however, are of poor quality. The insert at the bottom of the leg has ripped out on one shelf (a taller insert may help). The 3/8"-16 threaded stem is too light duty for a shelf rated for 800 lbs, and several caster stems have bent after moving the shelves around. (If the tubing inserts had threads all the way to the bottom, the stems may not bend so easily. Or better yet, use a 1/2" threaded stem and a taller insert). I have had one caster complete fall apart.
This shelving unit could be great with some minor product modifications. Please try moving these shelves around with 800lbs and hitting a bump or a door threshold or two.
Also, where can I get replacement / additional casters that are the same size? I was expecting to be able to buy them at Costco.com."
Pros: includes back stops to prevent items from falling
Cons: none really.......none.
"I bought one for my new garage thinking it would be a temporary fit for what I really wanted. However, I couldn't ask for anything better than this product. It can be assembled as one six shelve unit or two three shelve units--all the necessary hardware is included to use the castors or leveling legs. Extremely sturdy and excellent quality unit. I just bought another unit for our pantry and noticed it went on sale for $15 off. (Bummer)"
"I recently bought 3 of these and have used them to organize our garage. The outside wall of our garage has about 1' of foundation, then the walls are studded above that. So if I put all 4 feet on the floor of the garage, there was a gap between the shelves and the wall. That seemed like wasting space and those extra 5" come in handy when you have a car with big doors.
These things are so configurable I was able to make the back legs short, so they sit on top of the foundation wall. The front legs are long so they sit on the floor. The adjustable leveling feet let me make sure that the shelves tip slightly away from the cars (toward the garage walls).
The end result is that I have AWESOME shelves snugged up to the walls, and the other half of the shelving system makes a great rolling cart/shelves for the basement.
So to recap, each unit made 1 3-tier shelf that is customized perfectly to our weird garage walls PLUS a 3-tier rolling shelf/cart."
"I purchased these shelves for storage. They are excellent and have stood up to heavy uasge very well. I would not, however, attempt to move the shelves on their casters while fully loaded as this put undue stress on the connectors but if lightly or moderately loaded and the bottom shelf is in place close to the bottom of the upright poles where the casters are attached they do well."
"I've been looking for the perfect shelves for months and finally found them in this product ! Two selling points for me were that they came on casters for easy rolling and had 6 shelves. They are not only utilitarian but handsome."
Pros: excellent quality, on wheels is a huge plus, very sturdy
Cons: arrive in pathetic packaging, had to request 2 replacement shelves due to damage
"These shelves are great and extremely easy to assemble. The one flaw is the packaging they arrive in. You can tell they were packed with zip ties and all the parts in plastic bags, but that is not how they arrive. Parts are 'everywhere' and 3 out of the 6 shelves were damaged (bent/mangled). I was able to salvage one, but 2 had to be replaced. While Costco and Trinity were extremely helpful in replacing the shelves, it was still a hassle to wait."
