I ordered 3 of these. They came in 2 separate shipments. I have to agree with other reviewers that that the packaging was not very sturdy. In all 3 shipments the back panels were bent. Fortunately the steel was pliable and a light touch with pliers got them back to proper shape. The biggest problem putting them together was the back panels. I discovered that lifting the first tab to be inserted a little and gradually increasing the height of each neighboring tab a little higher, the panels would slide together more easily--same for attaching the side panels. I will say the tabs did not stay inserted very well in the back panels--they kept sliding out until I learned to move the panels as little as possible. The other section that was a little odd was the bottom kick plate. The left side locked easily but the right side was stubborn (on all 3). I don't have a lot of hand strength so that was a little dicey. By the time I put the third bookcase together I had the building...
This is a great bookcase. I have owned several wooden bookcases over the years and the shelves tend to sag a bit with the weight of books and such which is why I went with a steel one this time. Very glad I did. The assembly was very easy and SHOULD require no tools. However, mine arrived at my door with a few dings in it so some of the steel corners were bent. So what I used was a rubber mallet and some pliers to bend them back and it was fine. Assembly took me about 45 minutes due to me doing it by myself and because of the bends in the metal. But if you were to get this in perfect condition and have two people assembling it, it would probably only take 10 minutes to put together with no tools. The shelf looks great and is very sturdy. I'll be picking up a couple more of these down the road.
These are good shelves. In hindsight, I would have gone with the welded ones. Since the welded ones were not available I chose the snap together set. The packages came with minor damage that was corrected with a rubber hammer and they were not visibly damaged after assembly and use.
