The shelf bracket uses countersunk holes to provide clearance between the heads of the attaching screws and the adjusting side walls.
Many variations of K-D furniture have resulted and most of these variations remain in a state of continual improvement. Naske's device includes a locking pin extending through an opening in a side wall of a cabinet and having a head and shank of the same diameter and a neck of reduced diameter.
Much of such improvement to these furniture units has been in the development of durable and easily operable connecting elements used to support shelves, sliding drawers, doors etc. One significant development in K-D furniture is disclosed in U. The head and neck protrude at a right angle from the inner surface of the side wall and receive a cup-shaped element which is mounted in the end or under surface of the cooperating shelf.
In use the cup-shaped element slides onto the neck portion of the locking pin and the shelf is thereby supported (by a plurality of these pins and cup-shaped elements) within the enclosure.
The same pins are also used to connect hinge plates, drawer slides, and the like.
Known furniture systems of the knock-down type are provided with improved connecting elements; i.e., hinge fixing plates, drawer slides, shelf supports and facing strips, which facilitate assembly and fabrication, increase stability and durability, and refine the appearance of the cabinet.

The improved hinge fixing plate includes bearing bosses so arranged and structured as to accept conventionally available hinges in such manner as to permit adjusting of the cabinet door overhang.The improved drawer slide includes a longitudinal open-end rear slot and a transverse or vertical open-bottom forward slot spaced therefrom; the two slots cooperating to form an improved installation means.The shelf support bracket attaches to the side edge of a partial shelf having the rear section cut off to provide clearance for a lighting fixture.The above and other types of locking pin systems have been widely utilized in K-D furniture because of their inherent versatility and ease in the adjusting and positioning of enclosure components.Parallel rows of apertures are drilled into or through side walls of the cabinet, and the locking pins are inserted into and held in the selected apertures.The shelves as described above, and other components with corresponding adapting elements are then connected to the locking pins.
