I need to add more shelves to a built-in bookcase. The shelves are
supported by clips that fit pilaster strips, similar to Rubbermaid
Stripes & Clips or the Knapp & Voight clips (shown here:
BUT my pilaster strips have double rows of round holes and my clips
have dual tabs to fit them, not the central tab of the systems I find
in stores now.
Is there any way to get more clips that fit my current strips?
If that doesn't bring up page 1609, then enter it in the search block.
They would be my first choice- quick service and cheap shipping. [east
Where do you live? Where is the bookcase?
If in the US, I think you should not use pilaster when you search.
I've never heard the word. Even "support" probably won't help.
Shelf clips sounds right.
In person, ACE Hardware is the best chain in the US.
Elliot's Hardware in Dallas is afaik the best independant store in the
US, and you can email them a picture, and they will send someone out
to the floor to see if they have it, and they'll probably look in
their catalogs for you too. I used to go to Dallas and they had 7 or
8 kinds of pins alone. (I didn't look for clips.) I bought for one
bookcase when I was there, and later wanted to make another. They
shipped me 20 shelf pegs for 39 cents postage and handling, just the
cost of a first class stamp, no charge for the little manilla
envelope. This was 15 years ago and I don't promise their shipping is
so cheap now, but I'm sure it's not high.

products are used only in one part of the country.
Plus google images
has 12 million hits. I"m sure they won't still be shelf clips after a
