Bought these before when they were on offer - found them to be cheap, flimsy and crap all round.

Wiould recommend spending a little more on galvanised shelving from the likes of Von Haus.

Pleanty of stock around North Wales. Heat
B&Q also sell the same unit for £10. It is a good sturdy unit
Great offer but please bear in mind the size of these shelves.

I bought 2 last week but i wish i bought 1 instead. I think the black plastic ones are more sturdy but obviously depends what you want to use it for
Bit wonky but do the job

Bought 3 of these at about 7 quid each last year and wished I'd bought a couple more.

Will pick up 2 more if I can still get them at this price after Christmas.
These are great once built. A little bit of a pain to build but for the price you cant complain.

Be careful as the majority of stock they had at my local was missing 2 of the plastic bracket supports so open and check before leaving.
Bought one a few months ago at IKEA for around £15 so this is a very good price considering the plastic ones are usually this price when they go on sale.

Must admit lately there’s been quite a few good deals at Homebase lately.

I found the same experience with similar ones; good reviews but they were simply crap. Although there are some bargains, broadly speaking you get what you pay for.
Have one of these. Very wobbly.

Sturdy is not the word I would use!
These are super cheap in all respects but once screwed to the wall they're solid as a rock. Bargain. The cost cutting is amusingly obvious - the instructions tell you where to put the 8 corner supports, the contents list tells you there are 6
I'd pay a fiver more and get the Aldi ones when they're in but these do a job of sorts.
Nice
Instructions state there is 6 corner brackets on the 'what's in the box section' , instructions to build state you need 8..... There is only 6.

How did you compromise? Asking for the hubby

I didn't use any corner bits on the side I screwed into the wall
Recently bought similar from Amazon if I remember correctly, which was decent - I saw these in Homebase the other day and thought they looked the same, but they are not, these are very flimsy, even when fully built they wobble loads and don't think they could hold much weight, strapped to the wall it would be fine for light stuff though.

And if you don't then it won't work?

Ours is fine without being screwed to the wall. It's not fallen over or collapsed yet and it's crammed full of tools and other useless tat that we have 'just incase'
