1. Installing the top bracket is more difficult since instead of installing a small bracket you have the bracket and the rod which are one piece now. Getting the first screw in is hard with the rod that keeps floating around as you turn the screw.
2. The square tube steal frame rods are not tubes but U rods instead, which make the whole loft less able to hold a load. They could greatly increase the rod strength by welding even a small steal plate in the center of the rod since this is the weakest point. Looks like the old design was a mini version of the full sized but this new model is not and will not handle half the load.
3. The Jr when fully extended drops lower than the full sized by about an inch or so. This is annoying since I have a full sized and a Jr side by side and they do not line up. Seems like this would be an easy thing for the manufacturer to do and something they would have thought about since they seem to be a pretty detail oriented company.
Overall a good product but not for really heavy loads its rated at 150 lbs which seems accurate. Its a shame since this could be made to handle twice the load, I bet the old Jr design could have done that. I am sure they changed it to save money but I would have paid $5 or $10 more just to have the heavy duty design. Since the old design was literally a mini full sized unit that was more what I was expecting. Maybe they could release a Heavy Duty version of the Jr. I would buy it.
When designning the layout and area where you want to install this, know where the ceiling beams (studs) are. Don't assume all the beams are the same length. While the beams are 2ft apart, some extended from the wall in different length, some were horizontal and some were vertical. In my case, the beams at the corner of the ceiling "fanned" out in a square". Moving further from the wall they were horizontal and went across the entire ceiling. The direction of the beam (north south vs east west) will dictate the direction of the shelving.
Bottom line is make sure the beams accomodate the design layout you are trying to achieve. And lastly, due to not knowing this earlier on, the installation took much longer than anticipated. As I had to relocate them to a different part of the garage ceiling. Tip: Drill in the (2) ceiling bolts ONLY when you have all the hangers as you like them and test fit the shelves and clearance. This was one thing I did correctly, otherwise it would have been a nightmare to relocate to a different spot. I also used screws rather than the provided nails to "loose" fit the hangers. It was much easier to install and in my case uninstall.
By the way, I got the 36" system and with 24" beams you think multiple shelves would fit next to each other in a continuos piece. they do not, there is about a 4"-6" gap. So I may have considered the 45" system if I had known that ahead of time.
As for the product it is OK. It is your standard shelving. The hangers are a little wabbly but will hold.
The first unit is going to the hardest to put up. Afterwords, the rest of the units go up fairly quickly because you know what you're doing and you get used to working on the ceiling.
Installation Tips: Once you have found your joists, first time installation may yield not so great results. My installation of the 2nd set of 3 turned out better than my first. Again, the horizontal support rail will run parallel with your ceiling joists so plan accordingly. In addition, be sure to measure the 36" exactly between the vertical supports - this will be from the inside of the supports. For example, install the right vertical support first and then put the end of your tape measure on the inside of that support and measure out 36" and make a small line on the ceiling. At this line is where the inside of the left vertical support should line up. this will allow for the shelf (comes in 2 parts) to fit perfectly while keeping the vertical supports perfectly vertical. Also, if you're connecting more than 1 side-by-side, make sure that the lower half of the vertical support (each support consists of 2 pieces) is on the inside. You'll see what I mean once you install more than one. Be sure to zip tie the adjacent supports together to get that aforementioned, added stability. Getting the supports in the correct position are the foundation to a great installation.Read more ›
