Old medicine cabinet 'clips'

Anybody know where I can find 50+ year old medicine cabinet shelf clips?

One of my medicine cabinets is missing all 4 clips.

How deep are the shelves? Here's one for 4".

10-206 Aluminum Shelf Bracket, 4" : SWISCO.com

Might be out of stock by now.

Do a search for "medicine cabinet shelf supports" and you'll find lots of people in the same situation. Several I saw were in NYC.

Most people found them at recycled building material stores or in peoples junk piles. Try looking fr a Habitat ReStore near you.

Thanks so much. That would be perfect but I need 3". I'll dig through that site more and do some more Googling as well.

Thank you again!

Expensive but a sheet metal shop should be able to duplicate that. I suspect I could even make one out of galvanized roof flashing.

Years ago I screwed in cleats for an old medicine cabinet like that. It wasn't adjustable anymore but it gave me a shelf that was usable
