Fabulous! by: Ena Stewart from: Ferndale, MI on: September 23, 2015
I have to say, after much research I have finally got my Lemans II shelves installed. The product is an absolute must if you have blind cabinets like I did. They work like a precision German made product, very nicely constructed and are a tremendous lot of fun to play with not to mention useful. Throw out that awful Lazy Susan!! The only gripe I have is in the mess of directions you get. I found it much easier to install the side post first, following the instructions actual stated measurements...not the useless enclosed template. Loosely (without screws) install the center support and one shelf to make sure the swing turns out correctly and doesn't hit anything. Mine was fine using the measurements supplied for the closest looking cabinet style. Once you have everything dialed in, the second one goes much easier...literally a 15 minute job. My particular cabinet configuration, which is just a faceframe cabinet without center stile, was not listed which upset me but its pretty easy to figure it out if you read and compare the different types. One thing they all had in common was the side post measurements and position which is why I installed it first. Again, throw that template in the garbage! If you need the side post spacer like I did, you'll need to get some correspondingly longer screws which are not provided. Do not overlook ordering this spacer if you have a front cab frame. I used stainless steel oval head screws for a nice look. Be careful you don't screw or drill through the front of your cabinet when installing the inside center post. I didn't but it would be easy to do. Pre-drill your screw holes do put less stress on the wood when screwing it all together. Measure and mark things neatly and triple check yourself and it should all go fine. You will LOVE this work of cabinet art! AMAZING!!!
Great shelving system by: Tom Stephano from: Secane, Pe on: May 28, 2015
The product is very well built. The hardware is heavy and can handle the weight. I like the easy glides when closing. Install was simple. It took longer to get the cabinet empty of kitchenware then the install took.
Only problem was I had to go with the smaller system 15". Shelf's are small but work well. I am happy with the purchase.

NICE, SMOOTH, ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTIONS - NOT SO BAD TO INSTALL
Quality Product, EASY Installation (half hour)!! by: Scott from: North Branford, CT on: April 5, 2013
I just installed this in my kitchen and I am so impressed by the quality, and also the ease of installation. I was able to install it in half an hour, by myself, AND without any cursing!! The storage it offers is unbeatable. I should have done this years ago! If I knew how easy it was to do, I would have.
Great product by: DanS from: Tulsa, OK on: November 29, 2012
This is the best corner organizer (a.k.a. blind lazy susan) that I've seen/used. The construction is super strong and the installation is super easy - 10x easier than competative products (e.g. Rev-a-Shelf).
Quality Product by: Sam from: Las Cruces, NM on: October 9, 2012
The instructions were a little hard to understand at first. Once installed the shelves operate smoothly and the unit looks great.
Wonderful! Helpful Hint: shelves can be used on a 2 door cabinet if the doors can open at least 160 degrees. by: Lea Hietala from: St. Paul, MN on: October 2, 2012
Easy for the handyman to install, although the instructions seemed confusing. These shelves bring everything in my lower blind corner cabinet into full view and access. Items on the shelves do not slide around. The mechanical arms move smoothly and effortlessly. I have a small "U" shaped kitchen (4' x 5' standing space) and even with the shelves fully extended they do not block movement. My blind corner cabinet opening has 2 doors, fortunately they open about 160 degrees otherwise the shelves would not extend out far enough.
How do i determine the "swing" of the unit? As i face my cabinet the door is hinged on the right and the lemans would pull out towards the left, i guess. Is this a left swing? So the "swing" is the opposite side of the door hinges? - Asked about product HA-541.32.446
Yes, that is correct. "Left swing" means that the end of the unit swings out to the left, where the door hinges would then be on the right, and vice versa, so you would need a left swing unit for your application.

Are the heights adjustable? - Asked about product HA-541.32.750
Yes, the shelf heights are adjustable (the post is not) and so, is the swing-out end-position.

I'm not sure what size would be appropriate for my new right swing door blind corner cabinet, but my question concerns the weight for the shelves? What is the weight limit? (I'm thinking of cans, etc).
My cabinet is 24" deep and 48" long.
Thanks! - Asked about product HA-541.32.450
The Max Weight Capacity per tray is 55 lbs.

I am working with a custom cabinet maker, and they are suggesting a half-moon lazy susan for my left-blind corner cabinet, which has yet to be finalized in terms of the size of the unit. If I go with the LeMans II, I want to make the cabinet as small as possible to fit the LeMans size requirements (to maximize storage usability).
My question is: What is the square inch measurements for each shelf on the LeMans II (15", 18" and 21" versions)? - Asked about product HA-541.32.760
The square inch measurements for Hafele’s LeMans II" Kitchen Blind Corner Organizer are:
15" Lazy Susan Tray: 361 square inches
18" Lazy Susan Tray: 442 square inches
21" Lazy Susan Tray: 528 square inches

How do you determine if a shim is necessary? It's not clear to me from the diagrams what is being measured, especially with a frameless cabinet. - Asked about product HA-541.32.450
If the application is frameless then, a filler strip is not needed.
If the blind corner organizer cabinet has a face frame, the filler strip is only needed if the distance between the inside cabinet and the edge of the face frame is between 13/16 and 1 inch . The corresponding Filler Strip (HA-541.32.506) can be found on the page under ‘Accessories’.

I am interested in the product but wonder if it can work for me. I have a 2 door opening that measures 21", so looks like I need the 18"Tray. Will the additional width be a problem for mounting? I believe my cabinet has a face frame. Depth of cabinet is 23 1/4" and interior width is 47", will the 18" tray fully utilize this space? What would be the length and width of the 18" tray? - Asked about product HA-541.32.751
This will fit into an unobstructed opening of the size you mentioned. Each shelf glides out to give full access to everything one stores on the shelves. It has 884 sq. inches of storage space total (442 sq inches per shelf). The face frame should not affect the installation.
