I bought three of these for alcoves in our great room. They look great on the store shelf however they are a nightmare to install. I’m a tradesman and take pride in installing things properly so I made sure that the brackets were level and properly secured. The first one I installed sloped downwards away from the wall so I had to re-drill the bracket and mount it upside down to get the shelf fairly level front to back. The other two were mounted one above the other and again I installed the brackets using a level and double checking. When I slipped the shelves over the brackets and secured them with the set screws one shelf sloped to the left and also sloped up about 5 degrees front to back. I ended up taking a trip back to Rona to get a replacement. That one could be made to look sort of level with some judicious bending of the support bracket.The other was fairly level front to back but sloped to the right. I was able to get it reasonably straight by bending the tubular arms on the bracket. It’s like they didn’t use any jigs when they were making the installation brackets and also didn’t use any jigs when they were drilling the holes in the shelves. So, all in all a very unsatisfactory experience. It turned what should have been about a one hour job into a three hour nightmare and an extra 30 km round trip to return the defective product.
