Hackers Help: How to attach long countertop to 2 ALEX units?





I have 2 Alex drawer units and between them a SÄLJAN platform. It looks something like this:

How do I attach the Alex units to the SÄLJAN countertop? Glue?

I rather use some method that will allow me to dismantle them in the future if needed, but they still need to be attached strong in case I will move the units.

Any ideas?

You can use brackets (like what Vineta did) to secure the countertop to the Alex drawers. When you need to dismantle, just remove the brackets and you’re good to go. Another option – neater but requires a lot more precision - you can also screw from inside the Alex (one screw at each 4 corner) upwards to the countertop. Just make sure to get the correct length screws that won’t pierce through to the top. I’ve also seen others use Velcro successfully.  ~ Jules

    I used Anti Slip Mates (3mm thick) from One Dollar Store on two Alex Unites to fixate a Oakwood Plate.

    Two sided foam tape is what professional furniture installers use to attach countertops to drawers or filing cabinets.
