Did this video help you?

sRidge R: Thanks so much for the video! I do have a couple questions: How much weight can the unit hold? I don't see a number on the Ikea website. I have an extensive gaming collection which includes some heavier stuff. And my second question is, do you think it would be alright to do a little mod where you drill a hole in the side and on the door so you can loop a chain through to put a padlock on? Wanna make sure my collection is safe! lol

Geoffrey Page: Very helpful. Now I know how those white plastic things on the back work.

OrangeXenon54: Why didn't you show how to screw the two units together!?

Stef Serafin: Sucks they don't give you a screw to mount to the wall the entire unit nor do they suggest what type of screw.

tasev1: Those white plastic squares, are they useable for hanging a shelf from the wall or are they only anchors?

MasterChief0522: I recently bought 2 bookshelves, 2 height extensions and 2 wide "cabinents". I want to assemble them around my TV in a square shape minus the middle. I have everything built, but I am unsure of how to put the extensions on the bookshelves as well as installing the top "cabinent". The instructions that came with the products are unclear and I was wondering if anyone had done something like this and could offer some advise. Do I need the suspension rail? Can I connect the pieces together with screws or will it be unstable? 

Bilal Arshad: Do you think the back panel adds to stability of the entire shelving unit? I am planning on vertically stacking my gaming consoles (one on each panel) - so I want to leave that area open (for ventilation). I've noticed that after putting it together if you move shake the unit a bit, it doesn't feel that sturdy (note: This is before, you screw it in to the wall - which I was hoping to avoid, especially cause I am not planning on installing doors of anything kind)

Ramon Solorzano: Very helpful video. I used this to help me install both my bestas... one question I do have. Is it difficult to bolt these to the wall. I live in cali and im afraid of a quake pushing these over. 

Martha Burtis: I'm attempting to put one of these together, and I can't figure out how to keep the back panel from slipping out of the grooves as you slide it up. Once I get it 12 inches or so up the back, the panel just pops out of the grooves. Your video makes it look so easy, so I'm very confused! Do you have any advice?

Yeop Roy: the white plastic at the back seems to fragile, does it really works when you mounted it? i thot they'll provide brackets?

Manny D.: great exceptional assembly and video. will definitely review this video and more more for tips. as I will be getting a besta with glass shelves and probably glass doors

pinkypooapple: Thanks so much! This helped a lot!

Nicolas Lehuen: You just saved my sunday afternoon at 7:40. It was not clear to me how to slide the back panel - the instruction were not clear on that we have to slide along the grooved part. I was trying to brute force the thick part in, with poor results, but don't tell this to anyone :).

Alex Fulcher: thanks! :-)

sigzor302620: Very nice video to help us put these popular Bestas assembled. When attaching 2 units together are the holes already on the sides to put them together or do you have drill your own holes for that?

vicky soliz: Is it necessary to use the white plastic pieces we just assembled the besta vara tv stand

flybywifi: MontanaMikka, thank you for the compliment. you will love this pipe. it does conform to the 93db sound level here. just go easy in residential areas. will not change your emissions.
Azdrail: BM is becoming strong within you Force. Please do not be fascinated by the dark side or you'll lose yourself (with a bunch of subscribers too). Kripp is a good player but he's arrogant and not really fun to watch anymore. Just cause you can play all day long at a dam card game and you are good at it cause you play so much, that doesn't mean you have to be a douchebag BMing opponents. Losing a game is never fun, and if on top of that your opponent take unnecessary time finishing the game with the sole purpose of mocking you, that's just too much. You are better than this Dennis. I know it. C'mon man...
repique mayor: Partners....refreshers!!

Andy Mik: Lo único en lo que apoyo a las fans es que debes darle una explicación, para ellas es lo mejor del mundo por que solo es una película de amor dándole vueltas a la historia y llegando a lo que todas quieren ver, pero hablando critica y seriamente es una película que no tiene nada en esencia, insisto, una historia muy revolcada y que al final siendo de vampiros y guerra, no hay ni gota de sangre, aunado a malas actuaciones, sin duda solo un pretexto para ver rostros bonitos y nada mas
sandtropezdreams: I want that palette so bad but too lazy to go to ulta.
