Review of the Rackem Side Wall Shelf Supports

Today we'll be taking a look at the Rack'em side wall adjustable shelf supports for enclosed cargo trailers, part number RA-24. The kit's going to come with 3 of the support arms and 6 of the brackets that come off. You can get an additional 6 brackets. That's listed as part number RA-24B. You'll notice here a nice sturdy steel construction, really heavy-duty, surprisingly heavy-duty. Once you get it out of the box it's going to have a real nice, quality feel to it.

It's got the hand-hammered, powder-coat finish so it's going to be good, durable coating on it. It's going to be long lasting, help to resist any corrosion, and it won't really show the scratches and stuff that they're going to be used to being beat around in the trailer. You can see our arms are going to allow us to fit in a 1 by piece of board and it will come back to about 11 1/2 or 11 3/4" so a 1 by 12 would go in here without any kind of issue and give us plenty of support. Our shelving kit's rated to hold up to 100 lbs. Another great thing about our shelving kit is everything is going to be predrilled for us, so for our bracket securing points to secure our shelves and also to secure our side rails right into the walls. Everything is predrilled so we're not going to have to worry about making a bunch of holes and ruining drill bits to get this put in our trailer.

Now that we've gone over our features, let's show you how to get this installed. As you can see we've got a hook here at the top of our support rail. This is designed to fit right over the top of most enclosed trailers. On the one that we're dealing with today it's got a minimal amount of support here at the top. What we've done is placed in a large board.

We've got a beveled cut on the back side of it, an angled cut, and as you'll see that allows our Rack'em product to slide right over and rest right up on our board for us. Now it's going to be a matter of just securing it in using a few screws. As you can see, it's nice and secure. We're not going to have any issues with it moving around as we travel. We'll now take our brackets themselves. We'll be able to slide them down in at whatever height we decide.

It's nice they're adjustable. We can move them up or down and we can really customize this to fit our needs. Once we've got them in place here, we've got a small hole that runs through and we'll just get a screw started in there and we can tighten that down to secure our bracket in place. You can see there the bracket's going to be locked into position so we're not going to have to worry about this coming out if we hit any kind of bumps. We have options as far as how we can mount our shelves. We can do 3 short shelves with the brackets that we have. As you can see, we'll have 1 shelf here, 1 shelf here, 1 shelf up here on top. Another option that we'll have would be to take out our 2 lower or 2 upper brackets, whatever we decide, and move them over here to our third stabilizer bar. As you can see here, we've got our longer shelf here. Also the second one. We could put our board across there on the top. That will give us the 2 longer shelves. These can be spread out really as far as you want them, as long as you've got a board to go across. Then, once we've decided how we want them configure, right here on the bottom we'll be able to put in a screw and just secure it in place. You can see there now, our shelf's attached. We'll do that in the 3 locations all the way across or the 2 locations depending on what shelf configuration we're going to use. With our racks installed, that's going to complete today's look at the Rack'em side wall adjustable shelf supports, part number RA-24. .
