I tried the Shelf Reliance Under the Bed Food Rotation System, hoping to add more storage space.
Here are the parts that came with it:
I laid it all out, got a few tools and set out to assemble it.
Two hours later I was still assembling.
The parts do not fit well together, and just when you think they will stay up, the whole thing falls apart. I don't think I am totally clueless about building things-assembling bookshelves, cribs, futons etc. The issue was the holes do no line up properly with the other parts.
When I finally got the shelf assembled, I found out it does not fit well under our bed. Once assembled, it is 14 inches high. The shelf is way too tall and I would have to elevate the bed several more inches. In all fairness the height is specified in the Shelf Reliance website; my fault for not pre-measuring my under the bed space.
Lesson learned: Always measure your space before acquiring any new items. As far as recommending this product, I give it a 2.5 out of 5 stars, due to the difficulty of assembly.
