Doesn't fit intended purposeVerified ReviewerA bit disappointed with this product as I specifically asked at customer services instore for hole caps for Billy bookcase and this is what I was advised to buy. Turns out I was misinformed so now have an open packet going to waste. Seems from reading the reviews that there are a number of consumers in same position. Given 1 stars for each as it is not fit for purpose purchased so I cannot judge any other way.1
They don't fit Billy BookcaseVerified ReviewerJust a warning, these do not fit the Billy bookcase range and these are the only ones available at Ikea. Strange. :-(1
Product details need updating!Verified ReviewerShould have read reviews before purchasing as they don't work with my units. Like others, I assumed hole sizes were standard... Ikea - please list the product ranges these actually fit in the 'good to know' info - it would save your customers time and money.1
Poorly advertisedVerified ReviewerThese do not work on Billy or Besta which is a shame as the open holes make the products looks as cheap as they are. Being able to close the holes would make them appear much sturdier. A real shame and disappointment.1
Too big for billy bookcaseVerified ReviewerDisappointed to find out these can't be used on our billy bookcase and there is nothing else available to use1
Good for wardrobes but don’t fit billysVerified ReviewerShame these can’t be used on billys3
Hole capsVerified ReviewerIdeal for finishings touch in the wardrobes5
DOESN'T FIT BESTA UNITSVerified ReviewerWas really disappointed to find that these are not a generic for across all the IKEA furniture. Bought to hide the unsightly holes in my BESTA TV unit but they were too big! The little plugs provided with the cabinet doors would be perfect - PLEEEEEASE release them for sale!!2
NOT FOR USE WITH BESTA FURNITUREVerified ReviewerBought these to cover the unsightly holes in my BESTA TV unit (wrongly assumed that these were a standard size across all IKEA furniture). Turns out they only fit furniture with 5mm holes and the BESTA series have 3mm holes, which I was pretty gutted about. PLEASE release the smaller version that come with the lappviken doors as they'd be perfect.2
Waste of timeVerified ReviewerOnly available to fit 5 mm holes. This is ridiculous when BESTA range holes are 3mm. Left with over 600 holes showing. PLEASE PLEASE IKEA, start producing caps for the smaller holes.1
These don't fit billy shelves/besta unitsVerified ReviewerWe bought these in store so the description on the product page didn't help. Opened 3 packs into a bowl to start work sadly so found out too late. Same item in smaller size would be good!1
Just the jobVerified ReviewerColour match is perfect, and it's actually quite fun to put them all in. It's really essential to make the product look finished. You do need quite a few though - we needed about 4 packs per each PAX frame. Make sure you only do them at the very end though, because they are a real pain to get out once they're in. I also think they might look a touch better if the top was flat instead of domed.4
Very pleasedVerified ReviewerVery pleased5
Blanking studsVerified ReviewerThey drastically improve the final appearance - well worth the few minutes involved.5
perfect for covering unsightly holesVerified Reviewerperfect for covering unsightly holes in pax wardrobes5
Plugs to hide extra holes in wardrobesVerified ReviewerVery good idea. Covers up the unsightly holes that you don't need in the wardrobes.5
Quality is out standingVerified ReviewerFantastic5
Do not fit all holes!Verified ReviewerWe bought these to fill the little holes in a billy bookcase (purchased at the same time). They don't fit! Would seem that not all Ikea's holes are a standard size? I didn't see an option for smaller fillers. Only cheap and I am sure they would be great if they did fit, but not much use to me.1
Just what you need toVerified ReviewerJust what you need to achieve a great finish.4
Cover caps.Verified ReviewerPerfect. Makes wardrobes look custom made.5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!


What is PE plastic?

PE, or polyethylene, is a versatile plastic with many uses. It can be soft and flexible as well as tough and strong. At IKEA we use PE for things like plastic bags, freezer bags, ice packs and chopping boards. A big reason why we like this plastic is that it can be made from renewable raw materials like corn and sugar cane.
