Buyer beware......I am very disappointed. I cannot help but feel a bit duped by the way this product was marketed. Though written in the description, I would never have guessed that this "tower shelf" would not HAVE the SHELVES!! I was under the impression that I was buying what was shown in the picture. All I bought was a frame. The four shelves shown in the picture are $96 extra.
Overstock, if you are to be fair to your customers the name of this product should be: " John Louis Stand Alone Shelf Frame (shelves not included)"
require that John Louis submit a picture that does not include the four shelves that are currently in the picture.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is represented accurately on the ad
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product is of a quality construction, but you may reconsider when you have to add an additional $96 to get what is depicted.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? ***READ THE DESCRIPTION THOROUGHLY**** SHELVES NOT INCLUDED***** BUYER BEWARE ******
This item is very misleading. From the picture, one would expect to get the full tower - as pictured, shelves and all. However, for ***, what you're actually purchasing is the 4 walls of this towers with no shelves. If you want the shelves, it would cost you approximately another *** for 4 shelves, which would bring the total for this complete tower to *** - quite expensive for just a wooden tower with no hanging poles. Otherwise, wood is very sturdy and nice looking, but I find it extremely annoying to undo the package only to find, you're still missing parts to complete the rest of your wardrobe, which is why this listing warrants 1 star.
this is the standard tower, purchased the deluxe system initally,then added this for extra space, the shelves did not have the metal pens included, luckly had some from the deluxe system so did not have to contact customer service. Husband put up and together, was a 4hr project,, a handy man put the deluxe tower system up and took him 4-5 hrs, You pay for what you get and the deluxe system looks better and has the options for drawers and doors, which we have. The tower would work ok for simple things, but is not cheap ,considering the time and value.
I really like this product. The material appears to be some type of maple with choice of either a honey or dark color finish. The parts are beautifully finished and the towers assemble very easily. I like to mount the towers off the floor but resting on the top edge of the closet base board. That way it is easy to vacuum underneath. The modular design allows one to adjust the dimensions to fit your particular application (I shortened the height of one of mine by trimming about a foot off the base and re-attaching the base oversize-shelf using screws into the vertical struts). The wall-mounting hardware worked perfectly. I am not a fan of the twist-cam assembly systems (the aluminum cams break too often for me) but these work reasonably well here. As an added improvement, though, I beef up the joints by adding a single screw at each joint - - I find a 2" or 2.25" #9 auger tip finish screw (very small, star or square-drive head) in a one sixteenth" pilot hole works very well. It should be noted that you will need at least one additional shelf kit. I have two systems mounted right now and I plan to add the same in two more closets. Great system!
First of all, throw away the included directions! Watch the assembly instructions on YouTube. I am a handy person and could not make any sense of the written instructions...was almost ready to return them wheni pulled up the web site.
Overstock SHOULD mention there are NO middle shelves with this unit...just the four pieces, top, bottom and two sides. You need to purchase extra shelves. Il using them in my weaving studio and each unit has 6 shelves. Once assembled, it's easy to hang and use. Quality workmanship, nice appearance....too bad most of the time they're hidden in closets!
I wish I had read the reviews better. I can not believe that you can buy shelving without shelves. I had to order the shelves because of the hassle of returning what I had. And I could of bought another shelving set for less and not had all the hassle. They look now but I can't believe they come without the shelves
Don't get fooled by the picture. The cost includes only the frame and the shelves cost @#$ $ more to look like in the picture.
For #$% $ more , one can easily buy the whole closet organizer.
Agreed the fine print says that the cost is only for the frame, but who looks at it......... At least i didn't and am repenting.
