How do ladder shelves stay up?
A leaning ladder bookcase must be leaned against a wall or solid structure in order to stay up. The top of the bookcase is usually designed to rest squarely against the wall, and the feet of the bookcase will often feature some sort of rubber footing or other material to prevent the legs from sliding.
How do you keep ladder shelves from slipping?
When cut into pieces and placed under each corner of a bookshelf, virtually any sort of thin rubber mat – including bath mats and sink liners – will help keep the furniture secure. Alternatively, you can use beaded rubber cabinet and drawer liners in the same fashion as rug pads to prevent your bookshelf from sliding.
