A good product

" 10 of these are only slightly more expensive than 1 of many others I found online, yet perform the job well. The nickel plating is solid & almost chrome like. I can't comment on long term quality but looks good now.
There is a small issue that you cannot use the slots immediately under the screws - the brackets will not sit flat - but there are many slots to choose from so causes little problem.
Be careful how hard you screw them in, the screw holes sit higher than the strips are deep so it will distort if screwed in too hard. There is a screw hole every foot or so, so they do not need to be too tight. "

Smart strip

" Sturdy and smart bookcase strip which does not need to be painted. Can drop into a routed groove or have the side panel built up around it with 6mm MDF sheet.
Don't forget to buy the matching supports!

Frustrating - not consistent!
28 Jan 2016

" Annoyingly, having ordered three packs of these, they came in two different packaging. Same code, same manufacturer, (different manufacturer's codes). Slightly different.
The first 10 were in plastic, clean and fine.
The other 20 were in cardboard, and plastic. However they were covered with a thin film of a thick grease (unlike the others). They were a pain to clean.
Also the hole size was slightly bigger, though at a similar spacing. Watch the spacing distance from the end to the first hole as they were different. So mixing sets was a problem. Frustrating.
Also I was flush mounting these by recessing them. You have to nip them up in a vice as they have spread either in transit or in manfacture.
I recommend no more that a size 3 screw which just about allows you to use all the possible height settings.
Look good eventually but spent much longer sorting them out that I should have due to grease, and inconsistent sets using the same product code.
Am slightly worried that the grease was a sign that they may tarnish. Only time will tell.
Annoyingly the little supports themselves come in packs of ten. You need four for a shelf so always have 2 left over or have to buy another pack. "

Could be good

" Price is very good. Drove 10 miles to pick them up from the local Screwfix and they weren't there at the appointed time.
Delivered 2 days later.
Why are they covered in sticky preservative when they are plated and packed in plastic?
Why are they sold in packs of 10 rather than multiples of 4? Who needs 2 spare. Lucky for me I needed 20.
Main grouse is that they are about 16.3 mm wide. They are a pain to fit into the rebate I routed with my shiny new 16mm spiral cutter.
Lengths vary by 2 or 3mm so must line up the slots rather than the ends of the track.
Other than that, a good, relatively cheap product.

THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT SIZES!
Different lengths, different spacings on the slots and all from one box!.............useless.
Lucky I checked :( "
