I bought this wire rack holder because the local hardware stores don't sell them (probably because of their terrible quality!). I was very disappointed with this product.
1. The rack was the recommended product together with the window boxes (Dynamic Design HX2412FE Hampton 24-Inch Snap-Fit Poly Rim Window Box) that I got. However, THE WIRE HOLDER IS TOO WIDE FOR THIS WINDOW BOX! DO NOT GET THIS HOLDER for the above-described boxes.
2. The quality is extremely poor - immediately after I put my boxes onto the holders, the bottom support bent. Also, the weight of the box (which was only a 24'' box, and the holders are advertised to handle up to 36'') caused the over-the-rail joints to bend apart, and one joint to fail (more description below).
3. The design is terrible. Also not clear from the pictures online is a description of the mechanism by which the holder hangs over the rail. The mechanism is: the body of the holder is supported by an L-bracket, which fits together with a second, unattached, L-bracket to form an upside-down U over the railing. This junction is secured by three screws + screwtops over the top portion of the U. There are several problems with this arrangement:
· the screwtops are just plastic. Attempting to tighten them once there is any load on the holder only strips the plastic inside the screwtop and causes even more looseness. This is an inappropriate design to bear any weight. I was very unpleasantly surprised when I saw this, and think it is even dishonest not to describe the mechanism better online, as it would most definitely influence people's decision to buy this product.
· Once attached, if there are anything except perfect 90° angles between the front, top and back edges of your railing (as there is in mine, since I have a wrought iron 2" rail with 1" wide bars), the front of the holder will tip forward to begin with, and the rear L-bracket (the second, originally unattached piece) will lean away from the railing. No additional materials are provided to somehow secure this portion of the holder. This is both unattractive and potentially dangerous.
