    Hi,

    A while back I got these garage/industrial shelves. I have been able to assemble them and use them for the last couple of years. :)

    However, there were some accessories/parts that were included in the box that I haven't been able to figure out what they are for!!

    Can someone help me in identifying what these are used for?

    Looks like they slot in ends to stop things falling off and/or brace the unit.

    Any markings on them?

    I don't know if it is helpful or not but I believe these to be "G-Rack" shelving.

    @foxhole for bracing, I'd expect the little tongues to be at a 90 degree angle so I could fit them halfway through the "long" shelf support. That is what it looks like in the G-Rack website, tbh....

    Yep those bits are to strengthen the middle of the shelf, bend the ends round to fit.

    As above they are braces to strengthen the shelf centre. Fit them in the middle of the shelf and bend the tabs onto the shelf supports
