Bookcase rails/supports

exodioNovember 25, 2007

I need help finding a part for my bookcases - it is like a shelf peg for resting shelves on, but it is a rail that connects into the front hole and back hole horizontally on each side of the bookcase, and the shelf actually slides onto the rail. The shelves have grooves cut into the sides to accommodate the rail. I have found a huge amount of pegs for sale, but I can't seem to find a rail.

Any ideas? I have tried searching rail, bracket, bar, beam, pegs, sliding shelf, etc.

Good luck.
I have not seen them for sale as loose items in the past 2-3 years.
I usually have to bend them up if one is missing.

Lee Valley has them in the Shelf Support section of their hardware catalog, as "wire" or "hidden" supports.
