Product is as described. It expanded to fit my closet nicely. Easy to assemble, though I had to take it apart once as I had one end turned the wrong way. Only problem is my shoes do not fit on it. I wear a ladies size 8 and they are too small for this shoe rack. I didn't even think about this when purchasing the shoe rack because that's a pretty average shoe size. They only shoes that I can get to stay on this shoe rack are my sneakers, must be the rubber soles that keep them in place, all my other shoes fall right through.
