      Easy ordering and fast delivery. I was happy with the quality of the file folder frame. To adjust the size you would need to break the frame arm along the size notch.

      Comments about Sparco Hanging File Folder Frame - Letter Size:

      The Sparco SPR60529 frame for Hanging folders (letter size) is the classic way to outfit a box or drawer to use hanging file folders. Although it looks a bit skimpy, when put together, the whole was sturdy enough to be used standalone. In addition, with just a bit of work, the rails could be notched and broken at lengths other than the ones provided. The product says it is made in China.

      The front and back of the frames were made of a heavy steel wire. The rails on which the folders hang was made of sheet steel that is folded over on top of two steel wires that run the length of the rail. One wire was under each side of the fold.

      To allow it to be adjusted to fit various depths, the rails were scored (not notched) to be broken at 18 inches, 21 inches, and then every half inch to 27.5 inches. Here by "scored (not notched" I mean there is a groove across the rail on each side that does not extend all the way to the edge. On testing using a pair of pliers, I gave up trying to break it at 27.5 inches, and found it difficult to break it at 27 inches. Breaking it at 18 inches was much easier.

      Each of the front and back rectangular supports had a grove on each top corner and a cross bar with corresponding groves that screws against the top of the support. The end of a rail fit in the groves and was held in place by tightening a screw that presses the crosspiece against the top of the support.

      Once the rails are at the desired length, putting the frame together was straightforward. Wearing gloves and holding one of the supports, I screwed in the screws almost all the way using just my fingers. Then I put one end of a rail between the top and bottom groves on one side, adjusting the screw as necessary and then pressing the two pieces together against the end of the rail with my left hand while tightening the screw using a screwdriver with my right hand.

      I needed to put hanging files into 8 wooden drawers that are 9 inches deep and 25.5 inches wide. The idea was to put two frames in each drawer side by side. This involved cutting and assembling 16 frames.

      In the process I tried various approaches to reduce the time to complete and install a frame. To begin, each frame came in a thin, brittle, clear plastic wrapper. When I ripped into wrapper, the result is a ball of incompressible plastic plus little bits that electro-statically stuck to everything. I found it fastest to cut the plastic across the top, down one side, and across the bottom, then unwrap the plastic from the frame in a single piece that could be readily folded into a small easily trashed little package.

      I needed rails 9 inches long minus 1/16 of an inch to get proper fit. The only metal cutting tools I had were a hack saw and one foot long tin snips. After using a pencil to mark the length on the end opposite the one with the scoring, I used the tin snips to score the rail on one edge at the mark by squeezing and pressing the snips as hard as I could 4 times while holding it steady against a concrete floor with my foot on one end. Then I turned the rail around and did the other edge.

      The rail is flat on one side and humped on the other. For each rail, working with the humped side up, I sawed a notch into each edge of the rail at the mark using the scoring I had just made as a guide. Then I put the rail flat side down on a pile of bricks with the notches at the edge and the 9 inch part sticking out and pressed it down 90 degrees. The rail bent easily at the notches. Then I pressed the pieces together, flat side to flat side. When I folded the 9 inch piece back the other way, the rail snapped apart at the notches.

      My project was a success, and I would recommend this product to anyone who needs to add capability to handle hanging files. Also, I was able to find the frames on sale on-line for less than $3 each, which made them affordable. The only downsides I saw to the product was the difficulty of breaking the rails at the supplied scoring. It appears to me that the design leans more to strength of the frame rather than ease of breaking the rails. So it is not perfect.

              I bought a used filing cabinet only to find it was missing the inner frame, this was exactly what I needed. It takes a few minutes to put together. If you have a smaller cabinet you will have mark the needed length and break it off to size. Great buy, sturdy, well made, will be buying more! :D

              When purchasing used filing cabinets, the hanging file tracks are usually missing. These are a great economical way to make an old filing cabinet into a bargain.

                              The width and depth of my drawers are compatible but the length is 18". Even though it is not notched to make the length that short, I should be able to cut it to that length with a hacksaw so the adjustment can be made. Isn't this correct?

                                I don't know how much weight they can hold but the end of the rail can/will come out of the end holder if there is too much weight put on them. You just have to put it back in the holder, which can be a pain if it happens continually. Even if the rail doesn't come out of the holder it can bend. A file cabinet with the built in side rails, the kind with the high sides so you don't have to use a file frame work best for heavy files. But those cabinets cost more.
