This white end cap is a little over two inches long. It is used for the right side of either the refrigerator of the freezer door shelf.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
Removed plastic male parts. Inserted new end caps onto old retainer bar. Inserted all into door. A snap, but I didn't need to order the retainer bar after all - the old one was the perfect fit and the one I ordered was way too long. I returned the new retainer bar, and the shipping was more expensive than the part.

The replacement part was a bit too long (about 6"). Measured length of the existing bar that was on lower shelf and used a rotary tool with a metal cutting disc to make the same length. Everything snapped into place easily.
I replaced the shelf end caps in the shelves of my fridge and I also replaced the gasket around the door. Every time I would open the door, things would fall out because the shelves were giving, because the end caps were broken. Once I got the new ones, I was amazed that these parts are still available and that they lock right in with no problem. Once you get one in, you then have to place one end of that retaining bar into that, very tightly, making sure the end is completely secure in the cap. Then you can lock the other cap to the other end, lock it into place in the door and whala! It is just that simple.Now the gaket is another story, it is best to soak the gasket in hot water first to draw it up abit so it will be snug and also to use lubricant such as petroleum around the inside where it is going to fit to the door. This made it extremely easy to afix to my door with no problems. I am so glad for this site.. hundreds of dollars saved!!
Needed to saw the pieces. PUrchased hacksaw.Son sawed the pieces. Went in like a piece of cake.
We ordered end pieces for the shelf holder, attached them to the long piece and snaped them into the door. Three minutes to open the box, attach, and close the door. A less than 20 dollar repair and success!
I just had to make certain I had the correct end-cap for the correct side. I placed the two little curved pieces into the slots and applied some downward pressure (gently) onto the end-cap till I heard it "snap" into place. You could then see that it was held in place securely. I did first one side, then fed the bar into it, then placed the other side onto the the bar; inserted the end-cap and secured it in place.HINT: I myself mistakingly ordered the same exact end-cap for both the freezer and the fridge doors. I was unaware (I failed to check), that the end-caps for the freezer are not the same end-caps as the ones for the fridge door. My refrigerator uses three different end-cap sizes; one size for the actual fridge door and two additional different sizes for the freezer door. Not wanting to exchange it, I used the one I ordered anyway. It still works, but makes the bar protrude into the freezer more than it would have, had I ordered the correct size.SPECIAL NOTE: This company got the correctly ordered products to me within a couple of days. I would definitely order from them again without hesitation. I am very happy with the product and service. Smooth.
We have a wonderful Kelvinator refrigerator. It has served us tirelessly for more than 15 years - and looks as good as new! (We frequently clean it out and clean the interior and exterior, to keep it looking and smelling clean)Replacement of the end caps and shelf was very easy!The broken end caps were removed (missing for years), and it became one of those small projects that one never gets around to. I finally took down the model number and looked online for it. Google or Yahoo (can't remember which) pointed us to you site. I was SHOCKED to see that the parts were still available! I called your friendly customer order line and had a very pleasant experience placing the order. The BIGGEST shock came when the parts arrived THE NEXT DAY!! Just in time for Thanksgiving! You are AWESOME!The Repair:Easy as pie. The end caps simply snap into place. I did the left side first, then carefully inserted the metal bar, which is supported by the two end caps. Next I snapped in the right side cap - DONE. It took longer to clean the bar up, than it did to replace the caps!The Results:The bottom door shelf is now useable again. We can place 2 liter beverages and juice containers on the door, where they belong! My wife cheered and commented, "The refrigerator is no longer an eye sore when I open it!" :-)Thank you Parts Select!!!!
The parts were sent out fast, but the wrong retainer bar. My apartment bldg is in another state, by the time I got up to my apartment bldg to do the repair several weeks had passed and i lost the bill to get a refund and now I have a $40.00 strip of metal sitting in my garageSo the fix time would have been 15 minutes had I received the correct part.
First I removed the broken end caps. I placed the new end cap onto the shelf bar and snapped the end cap into the holding slot on the door interior. Took about 5 minutes. Very easy.
the repair went fast and easy. my boyfried measured the retainer bar, cut it with the hack saw installed the right and left side door shelf end cap and inserted the door shelf retain bar. the door looks great. would highly recommend your website and customer service. thanks again.
I measured the width I needed and used a handsaw to cut it the proper length. Then I snaped the pieces in and it was a perfect fit.
I removed the broken end caps by hand. They snap in to the center retainer bar. I ordered replacement parts from part select on their website. New end caps arrived in a couple of days. I installed new caps. No tools needed. Great service by part select. Thank you tm staten island ny
