I don't know why I bought this thing. I should know better: "easy assembly no tools required". Maybe it was because it's all I can barely afford (about $20). It's made out of some cheap crap, particleboard, probably. The big trick is getting the round plastic things magically through the round holes at the corners. Then stick the plastic poles into them, make sure they're tight, and build it up to 4 layers. If it ever did get put together, it could barely hold over 30 pounds. Is there some way to get this done or should I just return it? I sure wish I could afford the good stuff.
