Slightly slanting and crooked might be fine – but not when mounting a storage system. Not to worry – this mounting rail makes it easy to hang BOAXEL wall uprights straight and correctly on the wall.
The mounting rail helps you hang BOAXEL wall uprights straight and at the right distance from each other.BOAXEL can be used in humid areas of the home, like in the laundry room.Together with a spirit level, use the holes at the ends of the mounting rail for the final vertical adjustments to ensure that the mounting rail is positioned straight on the wall.Be aware that different wall materials are able to support different loads of weight. For instance, walls made of drywall cannot support as much weight as walls made of wood, concrete, or brick.Different wall materials require different types of fasteners. Use fasteners suitable for the walls in your home.If you are uncertain about what type of mounting devices to use, please contact your local hardware store.The mounting rail can be cut to an exact width if needed. Only applicable when using more than one mounting rail or for the adjustable clothes rail and shelf.This furniture must be secured to the wall.Note! Do not place BOAXEL in direct contact with water.Available in different sizes.Designer

Exactly what we neededSHERREEWe installed the BOAXEL system in two closets, in one to replace older wire shelving, and the other was a new closet. These fit well and were very versatile. Our only problem was when my daughter needed to shift where one shelf was, and the bracket bent nearly to the point of breaking. We were a little nervous about bending it back because it seemed thin, but we did bend it back and it is fine. It's only been a few weeks that they've been installed. They seem like they will hold up well.4

Easy installationMariaI recently reorganized my walk in closet. I love the Boaxel system. Easy installation.5
I was a little worriedMike in MarylandI’m pretty sure this replaces the ‘ALGOT’ system. I’m a true Ikea Hacker so I was concerned I couldn’t cut down the width. In true Ikea fashion... it’s Hackable.5
Measurements for standard stud spacing??_rrbynn11In the instructions pamphlet, the suspension rails are listed as 25 13/64” (64 cm) and 33 5/64” (84 cm), which is great because the screw holes are in somewhat from the end and would line up over standard 16” or 24” spaced studs. However the rails sold are 24 3/8” (~62 cm) and 32 1/4” (~82 cm), which means only only one end point will line up. I hope this is corrected when I have to add the wall uprights but I am not hopeful. Just something to consider before buying.3
Great value and easy installation!BossB36I found zero studs when installing, so I used a 20-pack of Toggler 5/16 anchors (and the included screws) from Lowes. This is Lowes product number 132770. The screw heads weren't precisely the right number of millimeters but they gave me a solid mount.5
Easy to install this sturdy shelf systemBarrysentialsI just installed two sets of mounting rails and uprights with clothes rods and a shelf in my child's closet. Much like Ikea's kitchen cabinet system, the installation is ingenious since it all hangs from the mounting rail which is easy to level and install. Be aware though that you do need to purchase your own wood screws as they are not included. The shorter suspension rail requires 4 counterhead flat top screws with a top of 1/4 (7mm), and each short upright takes 4 rounded top screws with a top of 5/16 (8mm). I found it best to use a drill to make pilot holes in the top rail before screwing it tight. On the website Ikea suggests that before you mount the uprights you install brackets and a shelf or clothes rail at the top and bottom so you can make sure everything is square and will fit later and that was simple and helpful. After doing that, I drilled pilot holes through the 4 spots on each upright and then installed the screws. It took about 45 minutes to install the main rail, uprights, clothes rail and shelf. It's helpful to have a rubber mallet to put in or take out each bracket as they fit very tight. And the shelf installation is a bit tricky -- you need to raise the front and come down at an angle to engage the hooks on both rears, then make sure the front hooks go in properly. The shelves don't seem to be super sturdy, but I mainly wanted the system for two clothes rails and this Ikea system is a great value and provides flexibility to change in the future.5
