Randi of Buffalo, NY infuriately wrote in a review "These clips simply do NOT work and ClosetMaid refuses to stand behind its merchandise. The design is extremely poor. An inordinate amount of strength is needed to get the clips onto the shelves and then they pop out. Additionally, if you can get the clips on the shelf, there is just enough space for the clips to fit into the spaces between the wires with no wiggle room of even an 1/18th of an inch to play. I have had contact with the company through a phone conversation and via email. During the first contact, I had to educate the representatives about what and how the products were supposed to be used. During the second contact I got apologies and nothing else. I have tried every suggestion made, both from the commentators on the product and company representatives. My lifestyle changed and I planned to install 15 simple shelves as opposed to the installation of different configurations which I easily did years ago. I am on my 4th attempt to rectify this problem as I have no other choice, but honestly, I am out of ideas. I have no more money to invest in this failed project (approximately $400), I am tired of living out of boxes (well over a month), re-purchasing more hardware, re-plastering/re-painting, dealing with a company that doesn’t care about its consumers, etc. At this point, I have a bag full of used clips and shelving with the rubberized covering ripped off because, these clips do NOT fit. This has been a frustrating and extremely inconvenient experience with no apparent resolution. The bottom line is that the clips do NOT work and the company does NOT stand behind its product."

"you would start the day with a group meeting on how we did the day before , or how much are quota is for the day. then we would go to our departments where we worked. worked for bout 3 hrs then would take a break . then come back work 2 then go to lunch . then do another 2 hrs. then go home . the hardest part of the job was dealing with the machine when it would not run correctly, sometimes it was very difficult to get it up an running . the most enjoyable part of the job, would have to be the friendship you make with other employees ,an getting that pay check every week."
