AbstractA vertically stabilized shelf bracket assembly having at least two support strips on which at least one cabinet and preferably one or more shelves are mounted. The shelving is stabilized in several ways. First, the brackets are provided with a shelf engaging recess. Second, the brackets are provided with a vertical member which engages the shelves. Preferably, the recess and the vertical member will engage the shelf at opposite ends of the shelf, securing the shelf to the bracket. The shelves can be further stabilized by securing the brackets against vertical displacement. This can be accomplished by securing the shelf brackets to the support strip with a locking pin. With the locking pin in place, the shelf bracket cannot be moved upward.
