Q: I currently have a wide base cabinet with a sagging shelf that needs to be supported. What do you offer?

A: Use either of our shelf supports B-120 and B-121 or our T-662.

Q: We build institutional cabinetry. Which locking shelf support do you recommend?

A: We recommend the new T-803 heavy-duty shelf support. It features twin 5 mm dowel pins and lets you fasten the shelf support to the side panel and the shelf to the support, if needed. It is made from clear, super-strong polycarbonate and each shelf support provides for 300 lbs of shear strength. It is available in bulk or in bags of 100.
