60 Second Shelf Review
60 Second Shelf is a relatively simple design: A 16-inch shelf which easily attaches to a wall without nails or tools, but using a small knob which screws it into the wall.
The commercial for 60 Second Shelf begins in typical exaggerated As Seen on TV fashion as we see a man fumbling to open a medicine cabinet, only to have this “problem” solved by the shelf.
Size-wise, 60 Second Shelf is somewhat small, only measuring 16 inches wide – only a few inches longer than a loaf of bread. There is a nice addition of an opening which wires can be put through in case you want to display an electronic device on the shelf.
Installation of 60 Second Shelf is easy, although if you hit a stud, it will be much more difficult to turn the handle. You should probably use a level to save yourself headaches and additional holes in your wall.
Although the advertising states there are no nails, 60 Second Shelf does screw into the wall, although this fact is downplayed in the advertising. Thus, when you remove the shelf, there will be small holes in the wall. This probably isn’t as bad as it sounds, because it has been our experience that products which attach via suction cups tend to be less sturdy than those which attach with screws, nails, or bolts.
Overall, not a bad product, despite its small size. Attractive and easy to mount, it is probably a bit expensive when shipping is factored into the price. If it becomes available in stores, it will be worth a closer look.
For competing products, the most popular option on Amazon would be the nexxt Maine floating wall shelf, which costs $16 and has a generally positive rating.
