Intro: Ikea Fixa Hack
This is a simple improvement and no-fee suggestion for IKEA.
I hope you find it useful.
I seem to get through many boxes of "FIXA" IKEA's "260-piece screw and plug set."
They are fairly good quality and I find the plugs are a good design. They would be better if each box included more plugs.
But an easy improvement is the addition of a pencil. If you are drilling holes, you need to measure and mark out the hole first. And for this you will require... a pencil. A pencil that fits into one of the compartments would be perfect.
Where might one find such a pencil? That's right? In IKEA!
Step 1: Put Pencil in Box
OK this instructable has only step which you may have already worked out:
Put IKEA pencil in box.
You need to undo the tape which seals the lid down first, but I can't see that IKEA would object to this.
Hey presto! a vastly improved product.
IKEA - how difficult would it be to do this for me?
