[Amazon Canada] AmazonBasics 5-Shelf Shelving Unit - Black for 64.99 (with free shipping) - Great deal

Hey,

If you are looking for solid metal wired shelves, these are a good price in my opinion (46% off), and they are the 72 inch height not the 60 inch.

They are the lowest price that amazon has had, according to camel camel.

Deal link:

https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-5-Sh ... black&th=1

Description:
- 5-shelf shelving unit for your kitchen, office, garage, and more
- Each shelf holds up to 350 pounds (evenly distributed)
- Wire shelves adjustable in 1-inch increments; no tools required
- Durable steel construction with black-coated chrome finish; adjustable leveling feet
- Measures 36x14x72 inches (LxWxH)

Cheers

Warm at best. Imo cold.

It's sold for $20-30 when on clearance at Canadian Tire. The ones I got were chrome but do. The same thing.

Would not call this hot

Do you have the link handy for the CDN tire one? I'm looking for something a bit lighter on the pocket

These don't look too bad, I need three of these for 3d printers and. Computers. For those of you who said they went on sale at crappy tire, were they the same size?

I don't know about these in particular but I find amazon basics stuff tends to be a lot higher quality than non branded canadian tire stuff. Its more costco quality if that's a reasonable example.

I'm sure the cdn tire ones will work for most people, but I wouldn't be surprised if the 350lb rating per shelf on these are higher.

Edit: These at cdn tire rated at 250lb per shelf http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/for-l ... p.html#srp

Honestly, the last time I have seen these baker racks relatively this cheap was during the final days before target liquidated at $50 a pop. These are the 5 foot tall ones

Clearance is always YMMV especially with CT
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

Can't comment on this particular Amazon Basics shelving unit but it's very similar design to Ikea Omar shelving units.
Ikea offers a 71", 6 shelf version of the Omar for $79.99 (chrome only - no black). You can always build it with fewer shelves if desired. I personally store shorter items though, so I appreciate the additional 6th shelf. Has been a very sturdy and reliable unit for me.

They also have a few more shelving configurations besides the 71", 6 shelf version:

Furthermore the Omar system has reasonably priced accessories:

$6 Shelf Liner: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/60334661/
- Great if you're storing smaller items loosely so they don't fall through

$4 Clip-on basket: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/00334664/

OP's deal seems pretty good, just want to make others aware of this option as well though!

I have a couple of the CT shelves, no complaints.

Amazon is 14" deep, CT is 18". This would probably account for the difference in weight capacity per shelf. Besides the dimensions, I believe they're identical products.

So these accessories should work with the Amazon unit?

the Ikea OMAR seems nice, and I suppose that the Amazon deal is over? I see 121.15$ now
