I returned this purchase because the file drawers in the cabinet I bought were designed to receive and store hanging file folders.

Easy to setup and put in. Much less expensive then a new file drawer..
Word of advice: cut it long then work your way shorter. While I didn't cut them too short, I almost did.

Rated 3 out of 5�by Dreamdeer Difficulty resizing--but here's how
I'm afraid they could do better on this product. The notchings for the break-off tabs don't go all the way back to the 17" depth that's standard on most older filing cabinets--the ones least likely to come already equipped with a hanging file frame.
To solve this I first broke off the tabs as far as they would go (A vice really helps.) Then I cut some magnetic tape the length of the inside of my filing cabinet. I put this on each strut in turn, and bent the excess on either end to a 45 degree angle (allow for the width of the metal.) Then I moved the magnet onto the next strut and repeated, and so on for all of my file drawers. The bent ends made the struts more secure when screwing them into the frame.
I hope this helps!

I've used these frames in the past and they work very well. They are still in use years later with no problems for me. In assembling, the toughest part is snapping the the metal bars to length. A vice would work very well for clamping the bar before bending. I laid the bar on an old table with a nice square edge and bent the excess over that edge. That worked well.
