Imagine not needing a manual. Not needing hardware. Not needing power tools. Just your bare hands, two seconds, and a simple push. The SHELF was designed around that very idea of autonomy, easy installation, and minimal knowledge of carpentry. Featuring an innovative mechanism (that I’m still trying to figure out) that locks onto drywalls without any machinery, prior drilling, or even leveling.
The SHELF is furniture installation made incredibly easy. With two wooden sleeves that slide against one another, The SHELF can be mounted on any drywall just simply by pushing it in. When you push forward, the outer sleeve slides towards the wall, prompting a mechanism in the inner sleeve to deploy incredibly small but powerful hooks that lock into the wall (I suspect they do this diagonally). When locked, they’re so firm that the shelves can take the weight of two cinder blocks (the largest TheShelf can carry as much as 30 lbs) without breaking a sweat. If you ever want to relocate the shelf, just pulling the outer sleeve with moderate force allows the hooks to disengage, and the shelf to detach from the drywall.
The simplicity, and honestly magical user-experience, lends itself to some pretty great benefits. A. You don’t need any expertise (or hired help) to mount The SHELF. Position it exactly where you want, and it embeds itself into the drywall without any drilling, nailing, or permanent damage. The hooks on The SHELF measure a mere millimeter (1/16th inch) in diameter, resulting in holes that are barely even visible. B. The hooks don’t penetrate through the drywall… they just embed themselves inside it, leaving any wires, conduits, or pipes behind your drywall completely untouched. C. The SHELF even comes with its own outlet for a wire, allowing you to route cables for a smart-speaker or an indoor camera through it without drilling holes into it or in the wall.
The magical, levitating, push-to-fasten shelves come in three sizes, perfect for books, frames, trophies, toys, plants, food, or even home electronics. Their ability to carry weight and pass wires give them every bit of versatility, and with a simple push or pull, the shelves can easily be relocated around the house without busting out any power tools… or damaging your drywall!
