Specialty Anchors - Wire Shelf

Specialty Anchors - Wire Shelf Packaging

Installing Wire Shelving Is a Snap

Designed specifically for wire shelving systems, each anchor is equipped with a retainer clip that locks the shelving in place. The shelf will not tip—even when the weight is distributed unevenly or near the edge.

Ideal for use with systems like ClosetMaid® or SCHULTE®. Perfect for closet systems, kitchen shelves, and garage or workshop shelves.

Use TOGGLER hollow-wall anchors for installing shelf supports and end brackets.
