The short corrals were originally designed for use in the pantry, as shown in this picture. Since they are shorter, the labels on the cans etc. can be read without having to pick each can up to see what they contain. We found that a number of rigs have shorter cabinets, and the short corrals work perfectly in these rigs for glasses and cups. The main benefit of the Corral is keeping everything where you put it, with the added benefit is not having your food attack you when you first open your cabinets.
