I put together 2 of these. The first one took about 2 1/2+ hours to figure out the layout instructions and put it all together, and the 2nd one only a little over an hour after I had gotten the hang of it. The Instructions are just OK w/small black & white photos, the poles are all numbered, but the corner poles could be a little bit more clear about which end is up and down.

On a difficulty scale, with 10 being the hardest, I'd say these are about a 6, mainly because of the large number of screws you have to put in (all pilot holes are pre-drilled).

Two items you must have on hand are a white head rubber mallet to pound the rods into the holes, and a power drill w/a No #2 Phillips bit, or you'll never get it together. Cardboard "Bankers" File Boxes are sold separately. This file stand system is not meant to be free standing, pvc poles must be strapped to a wall stud or w/the supplied drywall anchors (all hardware is included).

After getting them built, it was very sturdy and held full boxes of thick heavy legal sized folders in "Bankers" cardboard boxes. Much less expensive solution than metal cabinets, and especially good for "retired" files that aren't needed too often.

Recommend: Would certainly buy again when I need them.
