helps but not perfectPatricia A.It is hard to read and harder to store - it needs a hole to hang from or something. Otherwise it does help with consistent drilling.3
Drill templateCHRISTINE H.This application ruler like application tool was so convenient when putting on new pulls or handles on cabinet doors or drawers. All you do is decide , choose , mark with pencil the specific placement to drill or use screwdriver to apply hardware to door/ drawer front. Was very easy & simple to use.5
Useful guide for plotting fastenersSTEVEI've used versions of this over the years for plotting handle and pull holes for kitchen cabinets, drawers, etc. It works well, I've even used it on a small woodworking project. My first one cracked after about a decade, and I got a new one. Quality is good, but it's not super sturdy, so be careful. It works best if you have a second flat surface perpendicular to the end of the item so that Fixa can butt up against it, and measurements are consistent from piece to piece.5

Good tool especially For kitchen cabinet installElizabeth20This is a must tool if you’re installing IKEA kitchen cabinets yourself. Don’t go home without it5
Kitchen cabinetWorked great for kitchen cabinet hardware4
great help67 year old ladyGrabbed this while waiting for my order to be placed. Very helpful with the knobs and handles I purchased.4
Great for what it isBostonguyIt worked very well. I would like one that was wider to allow for drilling holes lower on the base cabinet drawers and wall cabinets. This one limits how far from the edge you can drill. Fine for most purposes but I was limited by the tool.4
Not tall enough!skikeaI was excited when I saw the length of this template, since it would seem to work better for extra long pulls. That said, the template isn't tall enough! It stops around ~2 inches tall. So if you, like me, want to center your handle right in the middle of a standard just under 5-inch tall IKEA drawer front (i.e 2-7/16 inches), this template won't work! What a bummer.1
Good Templatesmp64I didn't find out about the template until after we finished the cabinets. Worth the money.5
Unfortunately warpedMarb13We used the template as instructed, but it was warped and so the first two handles ended up crooked. We ended up having to correct the issue with other tools to get the handles straight and level.1
Handle nd Knob templateSpyder1974I thought this was a great idea, unfortunately it was a little too small for my needs , the placement of the handles on the drawers were too far away from the edge of this template measuring device so I couldn’t use it on this project. Are4
Great for ikea kitchen drawer handlesTina232910If you are putting handles, drawer pulls on your kitchen drawers...this makes the job so easy!5
Not for American HardwareFred4hpTried to use this on cabinet pulls with 3 inch span. The holes in the template did not match the spacing of the holes in the handles. I suspect this template is for IKEA handles.1
Quite smart indeed!YoseriouslyIkeaThis is exactly what I was looking for! I bought my Ikea Kitchen and didn't know how to install the handles. Why doesn't this ship with a kitchen purchase?? That would be ideal. Now I have to make another trip to my local Ikea over 100 miles away..1
This is worth it!Lindseyfaye87Ikea is the only place I could find a handle template this large for such a great price. Homedepot and Lowes don't even sell one. I would recommend this any day!5
Handy toolLikeittooThis is a handy tool for installing handle. Wish that the marking is easier to read.4
Worth 3x the priceJB141Ikea thinks of everything. This template is worth its wait in gold. Line it up with center, match your handle, and drill.5
Good for almost all sizesRiderbingWe got this to install the handles for our bar cabinets. It does not allow the sizing of the largest handle which we had to do some manual work but overall, this saved a lot of time and was spot on.4

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 plastics

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 plastics

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!
