It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love BUT THERE IS NO WAY TO ATTACH THIS TO THE WALL WITH ONLY 3” clearance to the ceiling. There are only two attachments in the front of the top cabinet, none in the back, so this is not so secure eiher. There should also be a way to attach one bookshelf to the next one. I have a big gap at the top i cannot squeeze closed. There is a half inch gap in the back short of attaching to the lower cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy assimbly - looks great After purchasing the shelf, I raised there was still room between the top and the celling. With plenty of room and the need to keep from storing loose books on top, I found this BILLY Height extension unit. It is easily assembled and looks like it was part of the original purchase. I plan to buy more of these BILLY Height extension units.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Might Be Good, Never Got to Use It I bought the Billy Height Extension Unit because it would have turned a short Billy (see separate review) into the perfect size for our storage needs. After assembling the bookcase and adding the doors I'd bought, I went to attach the height extension and ran into a brick wall. Eventually I found a private blog online that explained the height extension is ONLY for use with the tallest Billy model (unless I wanted to start drilling holes, etc.). This limitation is NOT very clear on the IKEA website; the wording is something like, "works well with the tall Billy..." but nothing more. Luckily I had not opened the box so returning this item was trouble-free. I'm giving it a 3-star review because it looked good in the store & would have done exactly what we needed... but I never got to try it out myself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mystery We have a 3 1/2 foot Billy bookcase at home and wanted to add an extension. Although we have furnished two homes with IKEA furniture that we assembled (and actually enjoyed doing so) we couldn't figure out how to install the extension on the bookcase so we gave up and returned it. The instructions did not appear to apply to the bookcase we have even though it is a Billy.
