This aluminum pilaster is ideal for built-in shelving and bookcase applications.
I really like the quality of the pilaster, and it was very easy to install on my cabinets. I however was very disappointed with the packaging for shipping. Cheap cardboard box without and packing material. Box was bent and so were the pilasters. They were only bent enough that I could re-bend back (no crease). I shouldn't have to fix something that I bought as new, but since it tool so long to arrive I needed to use them.
It was exactly what we wanted. W'd have preferred white which was more expensive and I found it later at Lowe's for less, but not enough to warrant the cost and bother of returning it..
The local hardware stores had it at a cheaper price. The finish of the Aluminum is not clean but a Scotch Brite cleaning pad and water was able to clean them up. I wish the manufacture would update the design. For example the mounting holes counter sinking are to small and should be made for number 6 counter sunk screws. They could add different type of metal shelf clips. Maybe offer anodized colors.
They have a very low profile and went on easily. They are surprisingly stronger than they look.
I've build a tool cart as shown in The Family Handyman magazine. I purchased standards and clips from Cabinet Parts. These are exactly what I wanted/needed. And Cabinet parts were helpful with the selection process and shipped quickly.
This review is about similar Knape and Vogt Shelf Hardware. (KV-256ZC)
They are great, I got the part that I needed and very quickly. I would highly recommend.
They knew exactly what I needed after just sending a picture
The hinge fit perfectly, was shipped timely and customer service gets an A+++
very easy to work with and outstanding response time for delivery; they were able to match exactly my hinges on our 12-year old cabinets. i have worked with them twice -- absolutely great!
These folks are good as good.
