Rev-A-Shelf – Love the product!

Seriously good, customer happy.

Sturdy and durable but install is a beast. I was looking for something much sturdier than a bottom mounted wire garbage can and i was impressed by the heavy duty quality of this product. It does seem sturdy and secure; however, be weary that this installation is not for the weak. My husband and i are pretty handy people and it took us over 3 hours to install this. Unless your cabinet is the exact width of the sliders, you’ll have to create wood shims on each side (nothing is included to help you with this) and also wood piece on the back to give you the correct depth. It requires serious measurement and the instructions are terrible. As in, they really only tell you how to secure your cabinet door to the slider and that was the easiest step of all of them. I am satisfied and think it will last, but again, it really only comes with a few screws, wood frame to insert can cans, cans, and metal sliders on the sides. Everything else is on your own.

Here are the specifications for the Rev-A-Shelf:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • (2) White 35 quart containers with Wood frame for 1-1/2″ face frame cabinet and mounting hardware
  • 150lb Full-Extension slide system with over travel
  • Includes patented door mount kit included to fit almost any door style (US Patent # 6,390,576)
  • Optional Rev-A-Shelf lids available, sold separately
  • Absolute sturdiness with front-side mounting, rear adjustable brackets and full-extension ball-bearing slides

Product is exactly as pictured and worked great in the kitchen we are redoing. We got rid of a trash compactor and this was the perfect replacement.

This is a must have in any kitchen. The item is very well built and was easy to install in my current kitchen.

Replaced our old one that broke and this one is far superior.

Best invention ever, durable and easy to install.

    Who knew anyone could love a new garbage/re-cycle unit. Got rid of my old food compacter. That i only used as a regular trash can. Who knew anyone could love a new garbage/re-cycle unit .My opening was wider than normal, so my contractor had some extra work to do on the inside and out. Even with that, it probably only took him 2 1/2 hours to install. He also made me a new door and installed that, as well. So happy to get rid of that extra trash can in the kitchen for my re-cycle. This unit glides beautifully and comes out all the way for easy removal of the trash cans.

    Good quality plywood makes up the base. I have a dog who likes to “dumpster dive”. This completely solved the problem. Good quality plywood makes up the base. The drawer slides are of similar quality i installed for othercabinet drawers (i have been over all pleased with). The install was rather easy, despite small working space. Used furring strips instead of the rear mounting brackets. My only negative comment was the instructions were not overly elaborate. I think i might end up attaching a push release magnet to help keep the door tightly closed.

    Liking this better than i thought i would. . Found it reasonably simple to install although the instructions were not terrifically clear as others have already stated. The photos sometimes didn’t agree with the text very well; i think in the end the text was clearer. We did have trouble finishing installation when one of the metal parts bent a bit and it took us a while to figure out why things weren’t locking into place near the end, but we got it working and we love the final outcome of these. They are larger then i’d worried they’d be; we bought them to put in during our house sale and feel we’d get this again for our next house, we enjoy having the trash out of the way that much even though we are cooks.

    The instructions were good and all necessary materials were provided (except a furring strip which i needed due to thin cabinet framing). It was packaged well and nothing was damaged. The installation was a little difficult, but that’s only due to me being a large man (6′ tall) trying to get at the back of a 18″ wide cabinet. Smaller installers will have an easier time. Once installed, it looks great. I use one can for trash and the second for recycling. Even with both completely full, this is still easy to open and close. I’m very happy with the end product; it looks and works great. The only very small knock i’d give it is that the included bins have a bulge on the bottom so they don’t sit flat on the ground, but since they typically hang in the frame, it’s not really a problem.
