Q: Do I need to allow extra space when setting up my new Basket Buddy?
A: When measuring the space for the Basket Buddy, allow 5 inches more in depth than the actual Basket Buddy measurement, because the baskets will extend out the back.
Q: I am having trouble assembling the Basket Buddy.
A: When assembling a Basket Buddy, go online and blow up the model chosen without the baskets. You can see where each of the parts go. The bottom shelf can be positioned either 3 or 5 inches from the floor, depending on whether you want more space for the lower baskets or more space to clean under the shelf.

A: Other baskets besides the ones we sell can be used with the Basket Buddy. The easiest fit are laundry baskets that hold between 1.25 and 1.75 bushels. Some baskets are flimsy and tear easily–others are strong and durable. All laundry basket have lips which will hold them in the Basket Buddy.

Also, if a Basket Buddy is used for storage, tie downs can be used.
Q: How can we label the baskets?
