Angry How do I attach Knape & Vogt All purpose shelf to bracket

I have just finished hanging two shelves in the laundry room. The last step was attaching the shelf to bracket. However, when I tried to screw a wood screw into the compressed wood shelf, it would not thread. I tried to pre-drill the hole, but when I screwed the screw into the pre-drilled hole, it pulled out the compressed wood around it.

Try a zip screw and don't predrill.

If the screws don't seem to work, put a bead of PowerGrab along the shelving bracket and set the shelf on it.
