That's why there are 6 Z Clips. Two pairs of clips hold the shelf in place, and the last two provide spacers at the bottom so that the shelf won't tip.

You had a good night's sleep. You're home minding your own business; Who knew before day's end, you'd be ordering Z Clips?

I am working on a design for a small 4 inch shelf that folds down and is just big enough for cell phones and that glass of water that my wife has sitting by the bed every night. I was going to order the fold up table that escape used to make (now not an option) but I really don't need an 8 inch table anyway. I need to get the dimensions of the wall above the 110 volt plug at the head of the bed. I plan on using oak and making a 1/2 inch fold up shelf with a triangle of wood that folds out to hold it up. It won't have to be too strong to hold a glass of water, a book or two, and maybe a cell phone. I would like to take it down and install it when we pick up our trailer in July.
