Whitmor Supreme 5 Tier Cart – Rolling Utility Organizer – Chrome – The price is right and it is a Great Product

I love these shelving units and have two in my apartment. I use one for my ‘garage’ stuff i. Tool box, cans of paints, sports equip, paint supplies, a basket with gloves/hats/umbrellas, etc. The other one i have is used as my pantry so it is loaded down with big cans, case of beer, wine, canned goods, bottled waterthey are tough, they roll, the wheels lock, and very sturdy.

Only problem is there is no ledge to stop things from sliding off and i have loaded it with jars of home canned food. Other than that it is just what i needed.

Wheels bent/broke far too easily.

  • Once You Get It Together, Great Product
  • The shelves are turned the wrong way
  • Good kitchen unit as long as your careful.

My husband had trouble assembling the feet. Three work but one is stationery. We have it in a pantry where we do not have to roll in and out so we are keeping it.

It’s currently holding a ninja full kitchen machine and accessories and a microwave, and that’s just on the top two shelves. Have put multiple 12pks as well as various other things on bottom two shelves at different points in time.

I wish it were a little sturdier. I’m not sure if it’s going to be able to hold a third cpu and ups but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

I have it in the kitchen, where it’s great for items that were cluttering up my counters, and also decorative items. Really love that it’s on wheels.

Little tricky putting together but, totally worth it.

Works great for our pantry cart.

Easy to assemble and sturdy. We move it on a hard tile floor and it rolls easily. Do keep the heavy objects lower on the shelf set if you’re going to move it. There are industrial grade units very similar to this – know what you need. This is great for easy storage within the weight specifications.

I used this to organize a bunch of outdoor gear for fishing and hunting i was tired of pulling out and stacking. This shelf is a relatively easy way to organize things for ease of access and better use of your limited time. I can also simply pull the entire thing out of the way when cleaning or permanently moving things around. The frame is relatively stable and solid, but i would not put hundreds of pounds of stuff on here. Putting it together by myself took around 40 minutes and the most time intensive part was removing all the stupid tape wrapped onto this thing. For the cost i doubt you will find a better solution.

I had massive trouble putting it together because i assumed the lip on the shelves went upright to hold items from sliding off. I wanted one with rollers so i can still access things behind it in my storeroom, but now i have to figure out how to attach some kind of backing so stuff doesn’t fly off the back. Otherwise it’s sturdy and looks nice. The never ending saga of me trying to organize things.

Customer service excellent to answer a question, have casters if needed. I even decided to use this as 2 separate shelf units as my new needs arose. One as microwave table, the other for my sewing machine. Versatile and strong, a great purchase.

Wished the shelves could hold more weigth.

Small gauge wire on the shelves themselves and ‘just enough’ engineering on the whole unit. More dolllar store than i expected.

This five-tier rolling rack holds sweaters and tops. The five shelves allows me the flexibility to segregate the contents by weight, kind and color. The wheels allow me to move the shelf at will. A great improvement from the previous stationary smaller rack i had. The quality and design of this rack is is similar to the whitmor double rack for clothes ordered at the same time. These racks serve different purposes, and are the perfect solution to my needs. I am very satisfied with them both.

Good enough product but read and follow directions exactly. Also, be prepared to purchase the the plastic pieces to place on the metal surfaces. Unfortunately, i think the price on those is ridiculous.

I thought it was going to be a little more heavy-duty and it’s a bit challenging to get the shelves exactly parallel but it will function fine for our need.

Worked great, but be careful of moving it when it is heavily laden. The wheels cannot handle too much weight.

The price was good and rolls well.

This unit works just fine in the kitchen as long as you treat it right. It’s not industrial grade so you have to be careful what you load on it and how you move it. Carefully is the first term that comes to mind. However, for the price it’s a great kitchen storage device. Made out of chrome plated steel so clean up is easy. If you need a more robust unit you’ll have to consider an industrial one. And, of course the price goes way up. $400 or $500 dollars is a good round industrial figure.

A little flex on this and instability when assembled, but overall, works well as a stationary metal rack. Wouldn’t recommend moving it around a lot though, doesn’t work nearly as well as a nice industrial grade rack with heavy-duty wheels.

Very well made, easy to assemble. This is a quality product that should last for many years. Looks good and with the casters, it is easily moved to clean behind it.

2×4 Basics Hopkins 90164 2x4basics Workbench and Shelving Storage System : New bike shop work bench, A++++

Made a nice little reloading bench out of mine. It’s 48′ x 27′ and built this size since the short side 2×4’s were cut at 24′. Only problem with a bench this small is there’s no room for the top shelves to mount without taking away most of the bench top. Sturdy and strong and the shelf spacing allows you to place your feet on the bottom shelf when loading. Mine isn’t bolted to the wall either but is still very rigid and secure. Truth be told i could have probably bought a nice pre-made bench for what this one cost as built but i wouldn’t have the satisfaction of building my own except for the legs. If i ever move i don’t think i’ll go this route again.

A big advantage of this design is it makes it relatively easy to produce a straight & level bench on the first try, since the pre-fab legs do much of the work for you. It’s also extremely flexible and customizable. For my workbench project i needed something sturdy, affordable, and flexible enough to fit the space in my garage workshop. After searching in vain for a ready-made bench in local stores, i ordered the 2x4basics #90164 kit through amazon. The kit came quickly and was complete (all screws, instructions, etc). I bought a good grade of framing 2x4s and some half-inch plywood. But before starting assembly, i looked for ideas in amazon’s customer photos and made a few design modifications. For example: a cutout in the center shelf for legroom; omitting the first shelf above the bench; adding backstops to the bench top and overhead shelf; and making the overhead shelf from half-inch plywood vice 2x4s. I also opted not to run the overhead shelf the full length, to allow more uncluttered vise workspace on the right end. The included #8×2” deck screws seem a little delicate, so i substituted #9×2.

I was able to buy the lumber, cut and build this in about 3-4 hours. I spent the rest of the weekend staining and wiring in lights. I am very impressed with the results, very easy and simple build. This is my new workbench for my bike shop, now i am ready to replace the old benches in my garage with this system. Super sturdy, just a great product in my opinion.

I ordered two of these systems and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to assemble. I built two separate bench types, one mainly as a storage rack and the other as a workbench. I made both benches out of 3/4′ mdf and standard 2x4x8s. I sent the tops of the benches and shelves to a local truck/van conversion place and had them linex the wood. It really turned out looking awesome. I took the time and bought bins and numbered each bin. I created a chart that identifies what each bin contains (batteries, light bulbs, etc. The bench system is much nicer than the shelving system. It certainly serves its purpose but not as perfectly as the bench system.

I’m always looking to add storage/work area to garage, and a workbench had long been on my todo list. After measurements, at first i decided to built a 7ft x 3ft surface. I had to reduce width to 32′ for easier reach (and more efficient use of materials). I really like the end result, but overall cost is was ~$250. Not that you can get a workbench of this size and sturdiness for less, but do not expect spending less than $150 (which was my initial plan). Here’s bill of materials and sizes i’ve used (all bought at the big orange store):1. 2×4 basics legs and shelving $702. Melamine 3/4′ (top surface) cut to size at the store 84’x32′ ~ $40melamine was cheaper than sanded 3/4′ plywood and has a nice surface. I would not use less that 3/4′ for top3. Sanded 1/2′ plywood (mid surface) 84’x32′ ~$40i used remaining of the board cut in 84’x4′ pieces to make an endboard for shelves, so small parts do not fall over4.

Hopkins 90164 2x4basics Workbench and Shelving Storage System with 2x4basics ShelfLinks Custom Storage System, : Really easy to build with a design that self tightens the frame as you go. I had lowe’s cut the plywood for me because i wanted a really straight edge. They cut it out of square and i used a 2 x 4 that had a 10 degree twist in it and the table compensated for these screw ups as i assembled it. I prepainted the wood before assembly and it really dresses it up nicely. The shelving can be added at any time, if needed as well as a 3rd table top. I am impressed with the ease of assembly and how an amateur can look like a pro with this table. Another great feature is how light it is and how easy it is to move. The strength and tightness really impresses me. I think i did a pretty good job for the little time i put in this project.

As a female i was a little worried about building my own gunsmithing bench, but this kit made it a breeze. Took me a few days, but i’m extremely happy with the results. I bought an extra set of shelf links to make the side shelves. Final product is super strong and solid. So glad i bought this, and so is my kitchen table.

Wow, where do you begin to review?. I researched this product, before i purchased and i have not been let down. There are so many great configuration for this bench, so i though i would add my own. I needed the work top to be 4 feet by 2 feet, to fit the space i needed. I pre cut and painted all the pieces before i assembled, per suggestion of a previous reviewer, which made the painting process less of a hassle later. I attached 4′ wheel casters, which clears the bench to roll. I should have purchases at least one locking pair. Oh well, works great for now. I wanted leg and foot space underneath the bench to place a chair, so if you need wood dimensions for the angled cuts, feel free to contact me. I attached a photo of all the screw, washers and such i used on top of the included hardware.

I was encouraged by the large number of positive reviews as well as the customizing options this kit allowed for. I had an idea of what i wanted going in and this kit provided for that. I cheated a bit by having the folks at the big orange box store cut all my wood for me (big shout out to them for cutting nearly perfect cuts). I used upgraded 2x4s and also used a sheet of 3/4 ply overlaid with another piece of 3/4 sanded birch ply. I wanted a cleaner top look so opted for the two layers. This also allowed for a better grab on my bench vise once i installed that. I also added a rounded piece of 1 1/2”moulding on the front of the bench to cover the front edge as well as the two different layers of ply visible from the front. More for aesthetics than anything else, but it’s a nice look. I had to cut away small areas on each side to allow for the plastic legs braces as the ply sets in behind them slightly. I chose to go with one long top shelf for storing power tools etc.
