These end caps are needed to cap the ends of each lateral wire for all types of ClosetMaid wire shelving except CloseMesh where you can use a smaller cap (product code 840).
The end caps provide the finishing touch to ensure that the shelving you have installed looks neat & tidy and any rough edges are hidden away from view and will not snag on your clothes etc.
You will need the following quantity of end caps per shelf :-
SuperSlide 30.5cm/12" deep = 10 per shelf
SuperSlide 40.6cm/16" deep = 12 per shelf
Shelf & Rod 25.4cm/10" deep = 4 per shelf PLUS 4 x product code 204 (large end cap) or product code 168 for 'open ends'
Shelf & Rod 30.5cm/12" deep = 4 per shelf PLUS 4 x product code 204 (large end cap) or product code 168 for 'open ends'
Shelf & Rod 40.6cm/16" deep = 6 per shelf PLUS 4 x product code 204 (large end cap) or product code 168 for 'open ends'
Linen 22.9cm/9" deep = 8 per shelf
Linen 30.5cm/12" deep = 8 per shelf
Linen 40.6cm/16" deep = 10 per shelf
Linen 50.8cm/20" deep = 10 per shelf
Remember that if, for example, you are purchasing a 2.44m/8' length of shelving and cutting it into three smaller pieces you will need to order three times the end caps shown above.
Also note that even if you don't plan to cut your shelves down, each length of shelf is likely to have been cut from larger 'factory' lengths and will still require end caps.
