    Easy installation, nice clean look when finished - you can cut to size with a hacksaw or abrasive chop saw. I would buy again.

    One design caution. The mounting brackets...
    One design caution. The mounting brackets are designed such that it is impossible to mount them at the very top of the file drawer. My file drawers are only deep enough to accommodate standard depth files if they are mounted at the very top of the drawer. Thus this File Frame System will not work for my drawers.

    Larry C on Jun 7, 2018
    Multiple colors are listed. Are all colors included in package or is there a specific model number for each color cream, white or almond?
    A shopper on May 22, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: i ordered the white and it only came with white parts
    Just to be sure, these rails & brackets will work on the inside of an old wooden desk drawer ? Are the brackets metal ? Thanks, Diane
    Diane C on Oct 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The brackets are made of metal and they fit very nicely in my custom built file drawers which are 13.5" wide × 13" deep. The hanging folders are 12.75" wide that we use. As long as your drawers can meet those dimensions they will work. They are a great product.
    I need a metal rail (16 1/8 inches long and 1/2 inch high and 1/8" thick) for my file cabinet. Can I get this from you?

    Thanks,
    Ellen
    Ellen T on Nov 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The Metafile rails are metal - 1/8 inch thick, 1/2 inch high and about 24 inches long. I cut mine down with a hacksaw to fit the drawer.
