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? 

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. 

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)

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

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?

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! :-)

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

pinkypooapple: Thanks so much! This helped a lot!

sixtyfiveford: They do give you a wall mount brackets for safety. I think they would be ok without if you weren't putting a ton of heavy stuff in them, but if you were loading them with books all the way to the top I would install the kit.

Dan Myers: do you have to mout it to the wall or will it be ok on its own, like or walmart book shelf???

cotes42: Hi, Are the white spacers on the corners strong enough to carry the cupboards as described in the manual? I have the 60x40x64cm besta units and I'm mounting it to the wall off the floor as instructed in the manual but I'm worried. Thanks in advance!

shantel1417: I recruited my mom and she was no help lol so i watched the video two more times and i just got it like 10 mins ago. Thanks for your help

sixtyfiveford: My wife puts a couple dozen cans of soup on each shelf and they don't sag at all. They seem very rigid and strong. i dont think books would be an issue.

ceebelle: I have an issue with my back panel they put the grooves on the unpainted raw side. Any idea if IKEA will let me return just the back panels or do I have to return the whole unit ?

sixtyfiveford: I think all bookshelves require a wall anchoring kit to be supplied to consumers these days.

sixtyfiveford: You're welcome.. Glad it helped.

Dan Myers: Not books 18" Action Figures... I just never seen any bookshelves that require you to intsall them into the wall is all....

sixtyfiveford: It should work the same with the grooves in the unpainted side. They could have changed their manufacturing process. If not I am almost positive they will just open another box at the store and swap you out the damaged piece. But I think your OK with the one you have. Note: 2 people make installing the back a ton easier.

sixtyfiveford: I second person to help makes it a ton easier.

shantel1417: Im having So much trouble sliding the back panel in and its starting to split down the middle.. Sigh

jasonmushersee: Just this morning my boss and i were talking about getting new cabinets like this at work! Where did you find them?

sixtyfiveford: I did not.

Elise A: I was wondering is the shelving quite strong because i plan on putting heavy books and wouldn't want it to sag or break?

sixtyfiveford: @jasonmushersee These are from IKEA.. They are pretty inexpensive.

sixtyfiveford: Awesome, I'm glad its working out.

Finnogda: Oh Man thank God for You, that's all I have to say - you've saved my sanity!! And yes, the grooves are on the bloody unfinished side!

Dan Myers: The ones I have bought from walmart does not require wall anchoring. Thats why I was asking no biggie...

sixtyfiveford: Yes, but you need to make sure you get it screwed into a stud in the wall.

zeebeque: Is it mounted to the wall? You show you would drill through the mark - but did you?

Dit omdat hij dan een flink opgevoerde machine vermoed, vanwege het geluid.. Na wat uitleg en eerlijk antwoorden dat hij enkel ontgrensd is..
