Good frame, weak cover, 1 quality control item. Great Customer Service!
This product does everything I need it to. To give more description this product have 2 platforms – the bottom one and the top one. They are connected by metal bars. All the frame’s bars are metal and those are connected by very sturdy plastic pieces. It seems to be able to hold a good amount of weight. My only complaint about the build quality is that the cover is VERY fragile. It is made of felt – the kind you get at a hobby store and tears VERY easily. So be very careful.
In my case one of the zippers fell off and is very difficult to re-attach, but I contacted whitmor customer service and they responded very promptly and are sending me a new cover to replace the one with the broken zipper.
Ultimately if the product had a canvas cover that wouldn’t tear easily I’d rank it a 5. Customer service is great if you ever have issues. I would buy another.
I Found An Easy Way To Put It Together
Just before I started putting this closet together, I reread all of the reviews that I read when I selected the product. Many had said that putting on the cover was difficult. Especially the reviewer who said to not put the bottom on until the end and the reviewer who said to put the poles through the fabric corner holes before putting the poles in the frame were helpful. I figured out that essentially ASSEMBLING IT BACKWARDS was the easiest. I assembled the top framework first, then inserted it at the top of the fabric closet. I put the top on the floor and inserted the poles from the bottom of the fabric through the corner holes. I then assembled the bottom framework and pushed it onto the corner poles. Voila! Easy.
This is great. It is strong enough to hold all my winter clothes, keeps dust off of them and doesn’t look too bad. Of course it is in the basement. : ) My hubby had a little trouble putting it together, but that was him. I would recommend this.
This was easy to put together. Just put the base on AFTER you put the cover on!! Perfect for switching out summer/winter wardrobe. My husband loved it so much that he wanted me to order him one.
it took a while and 2 people to set up. But I like it a lot—with sturdy frame and a spacious extension to my closet. will take it and use it in the future
I needed an extra closet to put in my basement. I love this product! I also purchased some cedar blocks to keep a fresh scent.
WHAT A BUY
i simply cannot believe what we got for approx $30 with free shipping. We moved South and brought our heavy coats with us. We hardly ever use them, but they were expensive and we like them. We are in a condo townhouse with very little closet space. When I saw this and the reviews, I thought ‘why not?’. So glad I did. My husband (not very handy) put this together with no trouble. We have all of our heavy coats in it, so far no problem. We also put our sneakers that we rarely use in the bottom. A great buy.
Best choice I ever made!!!
This product is simply awesome. At first I was afraid that it would not be sturdy enough because so many people said that it kinda collapses and is not stable. Well, I bought two of these because our real walk-in closet collapsed under the weight of my clothes (you can imagine that it is quite a lot of clothes). I think, right now I have about 90-100 lbs. of clothes in one of these closets and it stands stable as it could be. No falling in any direction. But I am also not pulling on it when I reach for my clothes. To test its stability I pulled and pushed a few times in the beginning just to see how it would react to it but it only moved around a bit like a house under an earthquake. No tipping over though.
Now, many people were complaining that it is hard to put this closet together. Well, I could not disagree more. I am a woman and I put this thing together myself without any trouble at all. But I think I know what some people might have done wrong in order to face the problems which were described in some reviews regarding the cover. If you follow theses simple tricks, you should not have any trouble fixing the cover at all. Ready?
The cover has got a little loop on the frontside. DO NOT attach this loop until you are done putting the cover up and around. Once you have the cover attached to all the bars (through the existing holes) and it is laying evenly on the floor start lifting the cover up COMPLETELY (this means on all sides – if you cannot manage by yourself, ask somebody to help) until it is high enough to start putting it up and around the highest point of the bars. Again, it is manadatory that the loop on the front bottom is NOT already attached or else you will have a hard time lifting the cover up (without breaking the loop or deattaching it again). Yes, the whole cover will be pretty much up on the bars now but this is necessary to make this a smooth and easy process. There is no need for it to stay down until you are finished putting it all around the bars.
Now, once you are done pulling the cover over all the top bars you will be able to smoothly pull the cover back down and then finally attach the loop so the cover will stay down and you can easily zip it open/closed.
So, to everybody who considers this product, I highly recommend it. I might even buy a 3rd one.
I agree though that a board on the bottom would be nice so you could put your shoes inside. Then again, I want my clothes smell fresh, so I bought another great product on Amazon that holds a lot of my shoes now
I hope this review was helpful and you do not fear to set-up this closet anymore – like I did at first.
