Great, but ended up breaking the bed?CHRISTINEI loved that we could attach this to our daughter's bed when we transitioned it from the crib to the toddler setting. The was great at stopping her from rolling out of bed. Unfortunately, in her moving and kicking against it in the night, it managed to crack the board of the actual bed itself that we attached it to. Kind of disappointing since we were hoping to recycle the crib for future children.3
Great looking protection for little ones.SHARONWorked great on the Ikea stack beds fir our twin 3 year olds.5
Fits well; annoying stickerDANIEL M.Fits an IKEA Slakt bed very nicely and is very secure. It has an annoying sticker; I tried getting it off with a hair dryer and was still left with a bunch of residue. The answer to removing the sticky residue was peanut butter! Hope this info is helpful to others.4
Perf.ElizabethI'm using this as an adult because I have a loft bed, but I imagine this would be perfect for children. I don't move too much when I sleep but this saves my pillows from falling over the edge. I'm confident in this guardrail and would only be concerned as a parent if your child is vigorously shaking this while leaning over it. Anyway, assembly is super easy. I'm only annoyed that the sticker on it is such a hassle to clean off; I have to use Goo Gone to remove the tacky residue.5
Perfect work for little bedJULIAPerfect work for little bed5
Almost greatHarmonyWe bought this for one of the extendable beds.. it will not work on the shortest setting of the bed.. which is what we have it at, at the moment for our toddler, but I’m sure it will be good once the bed is fully extended.4
Perfect rail for camper bunk bedMAGGIENeeded bed rails for 2013 Chaparral bunkhouse to protect the grandkids from rolling out of bunks. Attach rail then tighten.5
Best looking safety railRobin A.I love this safety rail, it was easy to assemble, is very sturdy and looks great.5

Total garbage2boymammaCompletely useless. Tried it on an ikea twin bed. Even without the matress pad, the rail is way too low. And it falls off with the slightest bump of a pillow. Garbage. And if it weren't for social distancing and covid19 I would return for a refund. Do not buy.1
Good but can be improvedAmndavlIt does its job, but you have to put padding on it to prevent you kid from bumping their head3
PerfectgoobieExactly as described. Easy to install5
Excellent result...BADMIt works perfect, I have bought two of it to install them in my daughter´s bed, she is 2 years old and its impossible that she will fall down of the bed while she is sleeping.5
Exactly what we needed.Jo Mama KnowsThe only down side is the metal brackets are a little ugly, but the rail works great. We us it on the crib we purchased from IKEA.5
BadRooniI’m not happy because it’s bad isn’t Good1
Works greatAna0518We bought this for my 5 year old. It has help a lot and prevented him from falling off his bed.5
Fits just fineDonmattermuchI bought this for a discontinued IKEA toddler bed and it fits just fone. The one review here that states it doesn’t fit their IKEA bed probably didn’t realize that the portion that fits on the bed frame has to be loose to fit on the frame and then tightened on in order to be secured. Hard to explain, but if you have no common sense it’s easy to see how you might think this guard rail “just doesn’t fit.” Fact of that matter is, it does.5
Does just what it is supposed to do.MsmarymemI bought this to clip on a chcild’s bed for my grandson’s visit, and it worked just fine. He fell out the other side, so I came back and got another! Problem solved! :)2
fits the bed frame perfectlyMae Maewe have an Ikea twin bed with drawers beneath and the guard rail installs easily, quickly, and is very sturdy.5
Easy to useMrscwilson08We have been using this rail for about 2 mo the now and Love it! It is much smaller than the others that you put under the mattress. Very happy with this item no complaints!5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

What is fiberboard?

Fiberboard is a stable and durable material made of leftover wood from the wood industry. A durable outer layer of paint or laminate is added to the board. The difference between various types of fiberboards, such as HDF and MDF, is mainly the thickness, yet also how impact-resistant they are – and this determines what we use them for. So regardless if it’s a bed, a wardrobe or your new bathroom cabinet, the leftover wooden fiber becomes a resource instead of going to waste.


Support in the night

With VIKARE guard rail you can prevent your child from falling out of bed, even if their dreams turn wild. You simply fasten it to the side of the bed, near the headboard. A real babysitter.
