Rated 3 out of 5 by TeacherLibrarian76 from Hard to use on bottom shelf Before you buy these, take a look at your shelves and decide if a) you plan to use these on the bottom shelves of your bookcases and b) you will want/need to move them often. If both answers are "yes" do not purchase these. If your shelves are like mine, to use these on the bottom shelf you need to remove all the books, lift the shelf up, attach these book stops to the shelf & then put everything back. It's an awkward and time-consuming process. Also, the way my shelves are constructed makes it impossible to get these book stops flush against the side of the bookshelf on the bottom shelf so there is a 2 inch gap. Please see the photos I've included. Once in place, I feel they do their job well are are nicely constructed. However, given the issues I will be not be purchasing more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krogers from Great for students and for me! I recently bought this and am really happy with how they help organize my library shelves for our elementary students. I did take one reviewer's suggestion and splurged for the book-stop with the cork bottom. I also bought the plastic covers, and I made my own signs to go in them using Microsoft Publisher. They look great, and it saves me and my students time as they are able to easily locate specific books they want like football, basketball, sharks, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by in the trenches from Not as strong as I had hoped I ordered many of these book stops and they do what the title says - stop books. However, the bottom of the clip is wider than the clip so if I turn it upside down to hang into the bottom shelf, the books on top have all that room which they will not glide over. Also, as I have slid many across the shelf as books are taken out, the plastic on the front of the shelf shows cracks and I expect them to just break one of these next times I try to slide them. Functional only if they are there to mark a section and not be moved. Disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christi16 from They are great for what I need them for. I like them so far. I use them to divide AR sections. I use a different color for each level (1.0-1.9 yellow, 2.0-2.9-red) It works really good in areas where the books are pretty tight, so technically they don't have to hold them up just separate them. It can hold up books just not as well as the metal ones. Cautions: Cannot use them on bottom shelves, which either are sitting on the floor or have a kick plate too close to the edge.Big bummer...I didn't think about that. Also you have to order the clear covers separate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcville from Great product We bought the ones with the cork bottom and we absolutely love them. We use them in our children's section as book ends. They are economical and can be moved about easily and with the cork bottoms they don't scratch the wood. They control the books better and the colors look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chickie from Book Stops The book stops are a hit with the students. I used them to seperate the sport books which has made it easier for the children to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sanpeter18 from We've had some of these book stops for years in our elementary library and were using them as book ends on the chapter book shelves. They work great for that purpose, except they do not stay on the bottom shelf. I've had one or two break over the years, but they've mostly held up quite well. I recently purchased more of these book stops to divide our non-fiction collection into smaller sections. We love the end result. Not only are books easier for students to find, they are also much easier for us to put away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimSC from Great item! These are better than the stops I was using. They don't slide around or fall over, and the colors look great on our shelves!
