    If you have garage sale shelving from IKEA, then theses pictures will help you. Getting shelving in pieces can be fun.

    These are the top and bottom of a drawer or wood shelving unit.

    The clips need to be attached to the framing.

    The rounded side goes up. This is what holds the shelving.

    The you can install the lower shelf first, and then the sides, and then the thin back panel.

    Last goes the upper portion.

    The pins fit into the holes with cams to tighten and snug them down.

    These take a phillips screw driver.

    The desk unit that is holding the printer, uses a metric M5.8 x 25mm flat head machine screws.

    Is the a contact email or web site in the Journalist manual? I need to obtain another shelf clips. I purchased a unit off Craigslist and it is missing one. Ikea no longer sells this brand and I cannot find the Journalist website or that proprietary clip online or in stores.

    Thanks,

    Terry where is the Anti Tip Bracket? I have noticed so many company's following suit with Ikea's stand on not installing this clip and leaving it to the home owner. Did you use one?

    Could you screw in behind the drawers on the left side unit?
