Hirsh Industries? File Caddy, Black
I was disappointed in this product. There were no instructions/suggestions on how to get the file cabinet on the caddy and I had never done this before. I had to do this on my own and getting the file cabinet on the caddy was very difficult. In my first try, the caddy bent so badly when the file cabinet missed the mark that I had to struggle to get the caddy out from under the cabinet and try to bend it back into place. The file cabinets were empty. When I finally figured out a way to get the file cabinet onto the caddy using a dolly, it was difficult to get the dolly out from between the caddy and the cabinet and I could see the side was bent. The metal of the caddy is just too soft. I repositioned the dolly to try to push the metal back into place. Once the caddy was in place and the cabinet was filled, the caddy did seem to hold the weight.
Advice: If you buy this product, I found it helpful to prop the caddy up against a wall (or another file cabinet that isn't on wheels), use the dolly to pick up the file cabinet, and barely set the edge of the file cabinet closest to you in the slots for that edge and then lean the cabinet forward with the dolly to put it into place. Try to keep the dolly lifted next to the file cabinet while you pull it out so you will not bend the edges as much as possible. Lastly, position the dolly so the edge of the foot of the dolly pushes against the side that was bent and push a bit to put it back into place.

Solved my problem!
I needed a file cabinet just a little bit taller than my desk so I could save space in my tiny office by putting the printer on top of the cabinet. This file caddy raised the height of the file cabinet just enough to make it work!
It was easy to assemble and adjust to fit the file cabinet size exactly. A simple and inexpensive solution to my office furniture dilemma.

Hirsh Vertical File Caddy
I love this product! I bought two for under my two file cabinets. It makes them look even better and I can move them arround for cleaning, etc.
I'll probably buy some more and stick them under some furniture or some other cabinets.

I own 5 of these. They are adjustable to different sizes and allow a heavy file cabinet to be easily moved. One of the 5 had a bad screw that I had to replace before assembly. If you have a 4-drawer cabinet you should have a helper lower the cabinet onto the File Caddy - it's a little tricky because the cabinet fits snugly onto the Caddy. The wheels are a little fragile and one broke when going over a metal floor divider - I had to purchase a replacement Caddy. Still, I like them and just ordered another one.
