Extending the “feet” of wire shelves for uneven surfaces


I'm installing a number of wire shelves in a garage, but the feet don't adjust far enough to compensate for the slope. Aside from bricks or other shims, what are my options for leveling these shelves?

In my case these are split sleeve wire shelves from InterMetro. The factory feet are 3/8" 16 pitch UNC coarse with very little adjustment room:

Metro does not seem to sell an appropriate foot leveler.

But a common carriage bolt will fit just fine. The rounded head compensates for the slope far better than the flat factory foot, and you can file the raised numbers off easily:

Or find a 3/8" 16 pitch "Combination Leg Equalizer" such as the Rockler #24315, which will spread the load more evenly:
