Critiques of these are accurate, and exactly why I decided to buy this. The negative reviews said that it was hard to cut off the frame rails if you need to shorten them. I thought, "Well, then I know they are thick and they won't be breaking." And the whole thing looks more sturdy than other products. So I bought these.

If you can spend twenty minutes and some elbow grease, you can get these to work fine, and they will be more durable than most other options. The instructions say to bend with pliers at the notches and it will break off. True, but not true. I needed TWO pairs of pliers, a lot of umph, and a hammer afterward to flatten the ends back out. But that's okay with me, if the product will be strong and last.

I also found a shortcut: instead of bending them off, I tried some medium-grade tin snips and I cut them off. That was hard, especially by the eighth rail; heavier duty snips would work better, or someone with strong hands. But bending works, too, just be ready to work a bit.

Don't buy this product unless you can bench press 250 pounds. The metal side rails are very very thick, and the scores in them are very shallow. I could not break off the ends myself. In frustration and anger I took it to a friend of mine who can bench press 250 pounds, and he was able to break off the ends with a pair of pliers for me. He did this on a solid work surface with a 90 degree edge. Definitely don't try this on anything that could scratch. Also, the directions do not tell you how much length to consider for the plastic stands on the ends. If you are unfortunate enough to have bought this product, a hammer might work on a solid work surface with a straight edge.

Also, Pendaflex has been bought out by Esselte Corporation. I called their help line to see if there was any other tool or any other way to break off the ends. The help line actually picked up and then hung up immediately, twice on me. This is also concerning to me because I have purchased most of my filing needs with the Pendaflex brand name. Now I will really look at the product closely before I buy it, if it is Pendaflex, and even take it out of the wrapper or box if I have to. Which makes me understand why this frame sold online at a reduced price. No way to actually look at it before you buy.

Run immediately away from this product and evaluate carefully other products with the Pendaflex brand name to make sure they are of the same quality as before the buyout.

Piece of garbage

Comments about Pendaflex® Letter/Legal Plastic Snap-Together Hanging Folder Frame, 4 Frames per Box:

This was more expensive than the OIC brand so thought it would be better. NOT. The rails aren't even straight when you unfold them. What a chincy poor quality product. If your thinking about it, then think of the OIC brand - it got great reviews. Wouldn't touch a Pendaflex product again.

  • Long Term Storage

Comments about Pendaflex® Letter/Legal Plastic Snap-Together Hanging Folder Frame, 4 Frames per Box:

I bought these today and after studying it, I found it was very easy to break the sides to make it shorter. Sandwich the metal between something sturdy and just using your hands simply apply pressure and it breaks easily at the seam. I don't know what others are doing with all of the tools but I just used my hands. I am certainly not a body builder! I am very happy with the quality. I have odd sized built-in drawers and this was the perfect solution. I will definitely buy more.

Comments about Pendaflex® Letter/Legal Plastic Snap-Together Hanging Folder Frame, 4 Frames per Box:

They were easy to assemble. However, the bar assembly is just not right. I wish the bars were all one long piece with the same capability to shorten them. the adjustable piece in the middle just doesn't open flat enough. It works but it would be better without the adjustable piece.

    I had my husband put it together for me. The metal bars needed to be cut to fit in the file cabinet we have. Not the easiest project, but he got it done.

        Comments about Pendaflex® Letter/Legal Plastic Snap-Together Hanging Folder Frame, 4 Frames per Box:

        I bought this product because Pendeflex has a good reputation for making quality products. I spent two hours trying to cut the steel bars. I work in an auto repair shop, and I could not cut through the steel with every professional tool I tried. After much frustration and lots of sweat, I managed to bend the pieces off but now the bars are not level, do not fit in the the slots,and keeps falling apart. Do not purchase.
