Rockler Hairpin Leg Shelf Brackets

Item #
78% of 100

Hairpin legs give you an easy way to create a stylish modern table out of any top. But until now, there's been no easy way to attach a lower shelf to the rounded metal legs. Rockler's patent-pending Hairpin Leg Shelf Brackets make attaching shelves both easy and attractive. Once installed, they stay almost entirely hidden beneath the shelf, so they won't detract from your sleek midcentury aesthetic. They're compatible with any 2-rod hairpin legs made from 3/8'' diameter rod. Each pack includes enough brackets for one shelf.


  • Lets you add a lower shelf to tables made with hairpin legs
  • Clamps anywhere along the leg so you can position the shelf at any height
  • Work with all 3/8'' diameter two-rod hairpin table legs
  • Discreet, low-profile design won't take away from the sleek appearance of your table
  • Each pack supports a total of 25 pounds (including weight of shelf)
  • Made from durable nylon with threaded inserts for a strong connection
  • Patent pending

(4) Rockler Hairpin Leg Shelf Brackets (each with two components + hex screws)
(8) Phillips-head mounting screws
(1) Hex wrench

Woodworking Experience:
Hold up to
These things are a great way to add a little more structure to a hairpin designed project. They also hold up quite nicely to the weight. I use ours as a bar cart and the bottom shelf holds glasses. Works really well.

I like the combination of hairpin legs with wooden benches and small tables; and now that Rockler made the brackets, I love the addition of a second shelf. Easy to install.

Great product, terrible customer service
If I was rating just the brackets I would rate a 5, they did the job perfect. However, the package must have gotten lost in the mail. It happens, but when I spoke with their customer service lady, she was very rude and not helpful at all.

I was thinking about creating my own brackets to hold a second shelf on tables I make. After thinking about it for a couple of months I saw Rockler had already come up with brackets to do the job. I'll be ready to make a second shelf for a live edge table I made for my wife.

I saw your ad in the Family Handyman magazine. I’ve made 3 tables with Hairpin legs and want to add a lower shelf to one. I didn’t know this product existed until I saw the ad.

Do they have brackets for 1/2 in legs ?
barry g on Mar 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not at this time.
How do you install this on the hairpin leg?
alicia h on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Take thee two screws out of bracket and put around leg put screws back in. The counter sunk holes go on the bottom. Do not over tighten. Put all four brackets on at the same height , put shelf on top of brackets and screw 2 screws into shelf
Will the bracket work with a hairpin leg that has 3 supports and not 2?
Christian F on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If the rod is 3/8" diameter it should work, but you would have to cut of the corner far enough, otherwise the shelf won't fit.
