Insta shelves are allegedly the fastest, easiest shelving system out there. You can install them in any corner without using any tools. What's more, you can stop wasting time using ordinary shelves and create more space for storage with each order. With four shelves per order, you can create a nice column of storage space up a corner of your wall or inside of a cabinet with high walls. Save yourself time and space with these corner shelves.
The cost of Insta Shelves is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Insta Shelves by paying the extra shipping fee of $7.99 for a total price of $35.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buyinstashelves.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Insta Shelves and has taken down the website. Insta Shelves may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
You can easily organize your rooms with the shelves.
Each unit can hold up to 10 pounds. This is the average weight that anything placed in such a small size would hold, such as pictures or candles.
There are no tools, nails, or screws required. In fact you can install each one in under a minute.
Many homes have larger shelving situations where you have space but not enough panels or places to put shelves. In such situations these can create nice corner units to help organize household things better like cups, plates, pictures, or stuffed animals.
Place the unit up against the corner where you want it to rest.
Make sure the unit is level.
Turn the locking mechanism underneath the unit to easily lock it in place.
If you need to make any adjustments, use the same locking mechanism to decrease the three prongs and change the position.
Turn on the one touch accent lighting when you want highlights on your shelves.
Insta Shelves work with a three prong support system where each from Jets outward from inside the center of the shelf. When the three prongs are retracted, you don't see them. As you turn the unit knob located underneath the shelf it stretches all three of the prongs outward until they lock inside your wall. From the looks of the design each of these prongs is actually a very sharp and pointed blade much like a razor blade. It looks as though each of the three razor blade points stabs into your wall in order to hold the unit in place.
Based on the information available it seems like these are rather unable to hold a lot given that they only come in white and only in plastic. There are no other colors available nor are there stronger options available. You are left with only the 10 pounds support.
The lighting available also requires some form of energy which is more than likely a few batteries, although the company never specifically says this. Based on the pictures it takes batteries which means that if you turn it on you will have to regularly replace the batteries.
These units are only available in one size, so aside from the weight limits, you cannot have wider shelving space.
Additionally, what they don't share on the website is that based on the looks of the three-pronged support system which locks in place. So, if you choose to make adjustments and move the location of the shelves, you will probably have marks left inside of your walls.
Should you use the shelves to create more space inside of the cabinet or wood furniture, you will be cutting into those pieces of furniture additionally. This can leave behind serious aesthetic issues. For most, this is something to take into consideration especially if you have specific rules in your place of residence against marks in the walls.
