Don't expect your getting a robust piece of equipment here though it has proven to be rigid and works the way it was made for. It's an inexpensive drying rack. You're totally getting what you pay for here and it's well worth the price.
At this size it's an easy few hundred bucks less than the premium grade dry racks with springs. No worries as I use it sideways and slide in the prints. I haven't even needed to raise any of the flip racks.
Easy to put together and ALL hardware for assembly included, minus tools of course. I used a power drill for the caster mounting with the lock nuts on the longer bolts.
Don't get carried away with bending the ends of the flip racks to mount to the frame as only a slight bend is needed. A 5 year old could do the bending it's that easy.
I do recommend a flathead screw driver to wedge in the stiff rubber bumpers to help with dropping on the frame of the racks.
The grid is great and for smaller prints I put in a slip of cardboard on a couple racks for a solid base.
It does take an hour to assemble which isn't bad as there are 54 parts. About a piece a minute isn't so bad.
I don't know what the couple of reviewers are complaining about.

This thing is mostly useless. For the price i assumed it wouldn't be great, but i thought it would be better than it is. The shelves buckle under their own weight and pinch and crease the paper that they're holding. The one upside to this was i bought it on a cyber monday sale so i only wasted $110 instead of $130.
I'd suggest saving some more money and finding a used legit one on Craigslist.

unfortunately my rack came with the wrong size screws and I had to spend an additional $20 on metric screws before I could assemble.

This is a really nice set of drying racks for the money. No problem putting it together but once assembled it's a bit difficult to put things in the bottom racks. The racks don't stay up like the larger more expensive types so you have to try to hold all of the upper racks up when putting projects on the lower racks. We're going to be using them for screen printing so not sure how that's all going to pan out.

This product was pretty easy to assemble and does a great job of storing my artwork while it is drying. It can hold pieces up to 18x24 and has about an inch of space between each row. This is great if you have a lot of smaller pieces and they need enough room to air out. I'm very happy with this product. Schoolizon did a good job of delivering it quickly and the price was very reasonable for the quality and usefulness of the product.

It took me a solid hour to put it together, and my hands were killing me afterward. You have to bend each shelf to get it clipped into the frame, then bend it back into shape once it's attached or the shelves don't square up. I couldn't get the bottom shelf to sit right on the frame, but the other 39 are okay. All the bending causes the paint to flake off.
For the money, it works just fine. However, if I ever have to buy another dry rack, I'll shell out a little extra and get one that goes together a little easier.
