The Hanging File Folder Frame is a great way to increase your hanging file space. You can use it in any drawer to turn it into a file drawer. There is a little bit of a learning curve when assembling the frame, as it comes flat in a box... but in a short amount of time, we were putting our filing system in place! My favorite feature is the ability to fit the frame to any size drawer. I highly recommend this brand & product specifically for hanging file folders onto.

During building this frame, the plastic sides were broken. Even though it was my fault I have almost never had a great experience with any plastic hanging file system. I highly recommend the all metal frames that use a screw. Also when you are making the rails for the frame the directions tell you to break off a section off of the metal rail. The edges were left bent and sharp. If you have the equipment you can grind down the ends and make them smooth but I do not and also do not find that a good use of my time. All in all - buy a metal frame file folder holder.

          There are no directions on how to make these frames hold legal size hanging files. It appears that the claims are false.

              I bought this for my office at work and knew the minute it came out of the box that this was going to be difficult to put together and I was right. The instructions are a joke and the pictures make no sense. It's a good product but this design has flaws in the assembly!

                Keeps folders from slumping under the one before or after it. Especially when the drawer is only partially full in the early months of the year. Very easy to access contents and return them to their proper place in the file because the support frame manages the hanging folders supported thereon.

                Comments about Smead Hanging File Folder Frame - 2 per pack Steel:

                I started out using this in my Real Estate office desk to keep files I was working on. It was so useful, I decided I also wanted one for my home office. Its flexible use allows you to use it as either letter size or legal size folder holder. It does not HAVE to go in a filing cabinet, it can go in really any drawer it can fit, which made the options at home much easier to decorate with. Very useful product for home, office, or both!

                this is for use in my home office. It's what I needed, however, the rails are still too long at the 23" mark. So it would be nice if there were more premade indentures to break the rails back shorter than 23".

                Comments about Smead Hanging File Folder Frame - 2 per pack Steel:

                I had the recent experience of assembling a hanging file folder frame assembly. I felt fortunate that I did it and didn't have to pay an employee to do it. It took me about an hour or 15 min a piece to accomplish. The screw holes were stripped out on each of the frames. It required me to remove the screw, place the frame on a solid object and use a hammer to compress the hole. This allowed me to use the product.

                The Hanging File Folder Frame is a great way to increase your hanging file space. You can use it in any drawer to turn it into a file drawer. There is a little bit of a learning curve when assembling the frame, as it comes flat in a box... but in a short amount of time, we were putting our filing system in place!

                Cartridge Comparison Guide
                • Cartridge Types
                • Ink & Toner Basics
                • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                Cartridge Type
                Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
                Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
                Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
