I don't recommend doing this too often because you'll probably either bend them or chip the nice, shiny black paint - but it's certainly fun to try at least once when you pull them out of the box. Go ahead and buy them.
There's been some confusion in some of the comments about whether one order of these gives you one bookend or two - I received 2 for each order, and any other way of selling bookends where you obviously need 2 for them to work flies in the face of my experience. Super heavy, nicely finished, as described and perfect if you have large or heavy books to hold up.
Also, like so many other things in in this world of corporate maximization of Return on Investment ROI the local chain stationery stores don't sell this item which might not be their fastest seller which used to be SOP, so goodbye chain store, hello Amazon. The sales VP Walmart rid of a while back also seemed to love his ROI over his merchandise, and once he was gone their response was not to return the missing items to the shelves, but rather to put more junky?
One person found this helpful. The image is of a pair of bookends and the title description says, "one pair", however I only received one bookend. Under the product information it does say only 1 bookend. The image and description is misleading. I reported this to Amazon. These are large 9" high X 6" width, the part that slips under the books is 6" long , well-built, heavy duty bookends with a simple, utilitarian design.
This is just what I was looking for. They work really well keeping in place big, heavy books. The non-skid base which covers the entire bottom surface keeps the unit in place and protects your shelf's surface, and the metal is rigid enough that it doesn't bend under the weight of large books. I would definitely buy these again. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
Purchased these bookends after a local search in stores yielded no results.

Of course, I come home, go on amazon, and there they are. Received promptly after ordering, well packaged with other items. Upon lifting the item from the box, I could tell that these were heavy duty by the weight. They seem like they will hold up some pretty heavy items, as they are both tall and thick.
While there are some other bookends on amazon that appear to be more aesthetically pleasing which is why I gave 4 out of 5 , I can almost guarentee they won't perform as well as these heavy duty jumbo bookends. We're going for function here. I'm currently using them on an overhead shelf above the tv to hold up all of our Blu-Rays and DVD's we have many The low price coupled with great shipping made this an easy decision.

And as usual, amazon has all the hard-to-find items. I honestly cant say they're bad because they're not. They get the job done but its not the best option for vinyl records to stand upright in a bookshelf. You have to really distribute the weight properly. Even once I don't need I'll still keep them, very useful.
I have two pairs.
One more step
Check thoroughly before using!!! These arrived yesterday on time and were almost immediately put to use. This morning, I was adjusting them and one scratched the table top. Inspecting the bottom of the guilty bookend, I found an edge that was bent slightly downward. No other potentially damaging edges were found on this pair or the second pair. I was able to bend the edge back up, but the paint chipped off the edge.
Fortunately, I was able to use one damaged bookend where it could not damage the surface. Unfortunately, I was not able to repair the thin scratch on my table, a family hand-me-down. Hindsight is and I wish I had checked these before using them. I hope my review will help others from having the similar damage to furniture.
