Screwless shelf supports?

Recommended Posts

I intend fitting some extra shelves in the overbed lockers but I don't want to drill holes or use screws.

 

I'm thinking that plastic angle trim fixed with grab adhesive might work.

 

Any ideas/suggestions please?

They should as long as whatever you use for shelves is light enough.   I made a number of adaptions to fit various items in glass vivs for my various reptiles, and all was fine as long as I used good quality adhesive.   Don't really see why wood should be so much different to glass in this case.      As long as whatever you plan to store on shelves is within the weight capabilities of the material you are using - if not, think about using a t bar type arrangement under the shelf to help prop it up.

An alternative is to fit the shelves with legs, or sides down to the shelf below.

Thanks.

Lightweight items only - no more than a kg or so.  

Additional support hadn't occurred to me so I'll keep that in mind.

A bit different sticking to film covered MDF than glass... Are you sure the glue won't be stronger than the bond between the MDF and the wood lookalike film?
