Well, as of February 2006 production the closet rod problem has not been resolved and to make sure that it will fail, the rod itself is too short so that it won't stay secured into both end brackets. Putting two #6 screws into 5mm plywood to secure the center bracket doesn't do much to help support the rod. I went to Lowes and bought a new (heavier) rod, two new end brackets and two center support brackets and secured them completely through the shelves with #10, 1 1/2 inch bolts and nuts. So far, it has held just fine.
