Breaks easilyNERINGAIf you are doing kitchen yourself and planning to move cabinets around make sure you order extra pack of legs as they breaks easily.3
Legs break easily, nearly impossible to shift cabinetAlison A.While the adjustability of these legs is great, and it makes adding a toe kick very easy -- they are SO FRUSTRATING because the tiniest micro adjustment to the cabinet location causes the leg to break where it holds onto the bracket, the whole thing is super fragile until in its permanent spot. I think next time I will go with 2x4 lumber.2
Weak and break easilyDave A.Nearly impossible to move a tall cabinet with these feet on without breaking them. Took 12 legs to get 2 high cabinets in place.1
Do not buy these- DO NOTSun C.I bought our whole kitchen and purchased 7 sets of these. They are so flimsy and broke when we tried to move our kitchen cabinet in place. Slight slide to put cabinets in place during install will break these. I couldnt put my kitchen together and now have to look for alternate legs for support. Very very frustrating1
Cheaply made and not durableBrittany W.We renovated our entire kitchen with IKEA. When we went to install the cabinets, we had to put these feet on. These feet are plastic and EXTREMELY fragile. Every time we tried to move or install a cabinet, at least one foot broke each time. If they broke in a matter of minutes putting them on, I can only imagine how quickly they would break when the cabinets had any items in them. We ended up getting the capita metal feet, drilling them into the base of the cabinets and using the capita feet instead. Then, we only used these sektion legs to hold the tie kicks plate.
IKEA should switch to metal feet as the default for their kitchen cabinets. I was very disappointed and will be returning most of these sektion legs.1
Waste of moneyAndrew M.They are cheap plastic that break very easy. Horrible design1
Yes, they’re that bad…tracie c.Like many still shocked ikea could even find such low quality plastic… even moving slowly and carefully, they don’t stay on well at all so a small bend and they break. Frustrating after spending a pretty penny on cabinets :-/ if possible avoid this product at all costs1
Easy and secure assemblyJudI was not sure on these. But, once I actually assembled them, and placed them, made leveling my cabinets a breeze and not a struggle. My only concern is the listed load rating.5
GarbageYilin L.So flimsy for such a heavy cabinet. Broke into pieces with slight move, even tho we managed to get the cabinet up without breaking the legs. Cannot believe this is an IKEA product. And it's ugly AF.1
easy for what they areChad H.Do I wish they would hold up to having to tip the cabinet after installing a bit better - absolutely. Do I think they are over priced for what they are? Yes. But do I hate them? No - they are a necessary item and not likely to change any time soon.4
Returning theseChristyThese legs are absolute garbage, will be returning. Purchases the stainless steel ones instead1
Ikea, please discontinue this!Emmanuel I.I can't believe this passed Ikea quality control. These legs break even as you are lifting the base cabinet up. How would Ikea let a flimsy plastic hold a base cabinet and countertop plus all the other things that will be on the countertop? Don't waste your time and money.1
Not reliableMONICA M.They are so flimsy and brake with the wrong movement , as our at all cost and look for a different one1
Cheap plastic legsAnthonyCheap plastic legs2
Dangerous piece of junk!!Sinan B.All the legs got broken while we were lifting the high cabinet. Leg base and legs itself don’t stay put. We almost got injured while trying to pull the cabinet up, it fell on the floor because legs got broken, and yes we screwed the legs all the way, we didn’t leave any weak spot, they are all weak due to poor quality material anyway.
Now we have 90” tall cabinet stays on the floor. What kind of engineering and junk material is this? It almost got us killed. Cabinet legs should be metal or wood not flimsy plastic.1
The cabinet legs are terrible.Larissa J.I love my new Ikea cabinets, assembly went great and following directions, it was not hard to put together. What was extremely difficult was maneuvering the cabinet into place with these flimsy legs that fall off once the cabinet is right-side up. We knocked them off while moving the cabinet into place, and with an 80" tall cabinet, one person could not hold it up to reassemble the legs. They are made of cheap plastic and don't even attach to the bottom of the piece. The cabinets themselves seem quite durable, but I am concerned about the integrity of these legs, and if the cabinets will be safe to use once any additional weight is applied (ie, I put things in the cabinets). Overall, the MOST frustrating part of assembling and installing my new cabinets has been these legs. They are CHEAP and poorly attach to the cabinet. I did not see an alternative leg to be used for these cabinets, I looked.1
New Cabinet InstallEricHad SEKTION cabinets installed and they are great looking.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.
Our ambition is to help as many as possible to have a kitchen they'd love to be in. We started sketching. “When we created SEKTION, it was our biggest ever kitchen change, so it's fair to say we were very keen to get it right,” says technician Klas-Ola Nilsson.
Research from around the world
So, what would people’s dream kitchen be like? We surveyed thousands of people, visited hundreds of homes and worked with food industry professionals. “We found if there's one thing in common with kitchens around the world it's that they're different.” Klas-Ola says. “For as many people who dream of an open space kitchen, there are people with a small space, or have to fit a pre-existing room.”
From research to result
One element became blindingly important. “We realized we needed a kitchen system that could adapt to different sized spaces in a way that hadn't been done before,” Klas-Ola says. “So, we developed cabinets that could fit almost anywhere.” Different sizes can be mixed to best fit the room and they'll still fit together – without odd ends. The clever inside can be personalized to support your kitchen needs and activities, too.
Ready for the future
An adaptable kitchen fits better with how you like to cook, both now and in the future. Whether you start craving a more professional kitchen, or just want to start using it for more activities, we would love SEKTION to help out. “There's nothing to say that SEKTION is set and fixed now,” Klas-Ola says. “It's something that's evolving and that we're developing as our ideas on what a kitchen should do changes into the future.”
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!
