Looks Great, Gets the Job Done
on January 19, 2015
Despite the many negative comments, I went ahead and ordered 25 of these because of their looks. They are GORGEOUS. The colors are vibrant and the hardware adds a delightful touch of bling. Some here have complained that they are difficult to assemble, flimsy, and won't stand up on their own. My college-sophomore son assembled them while I filled them with magazines. He had all 25 assembled before I could even fill the first eight. Judging by some of the complaints here, assembly is not fool-proof. So if you are a fool, don't buy these. If you are not a fool, you should be good to go.
As for these organizers being flimsy and falling down, yes, they are light weight, and you could knock them down if you are clumsy, or a strong wind could blow them over. You shouldn't use them to hold your magazine while you are on the deck of an aircraft carrier, guiding in fighter jets. (If I were you commanding officer, I would have a discreet word with you about reading magazines on the flight deck.)
I am attaching a picture of how they look in my home. Oh, look--there's one standing up by itself!
Fold them, fill them, and shove them into the book case. They'll be great.
