Question Extra Besta shelf pegs/supports

Morning all,
I've made a 2.4m ( w ) x 2.7m ( h ) bookcase/TV stand using besta furniture. Each shelf has four metal supports (some screw-in, some push-in). I am able to buy extra shelves at my local ikea ( fyi , it's the H*U*G*E new one in Belfast, Northern Ireland) but I also want to buy extra support pegs. However, I don't see them in my catalogue --- any ideas where I can get some extra pegs? I want about 40 so that I can support the shelves at six points not just the four corners.

Thanks, and Happy Christmas,

Re: Extra Besta shelf pegs/supports


Though you should be able to buy extra pegs at customer service, note that the shelves are only notched for the 4.

How much weight are you supporting to need the extra pegs anyways?

I am a muppet! You're right of course -- not much point in extra pegs when the shelves aren't "cut out" for them!

Happy Christmas
