Equivalent screw size?

I need replacement screws and the closest Ikea is 3 hours away. What is the equivalent to the 117494 screw?

Re: Equivalent screw size?

I use 1 1/4" drywall screws for all but non-Abstrakt white panels; for non-Abstrakt white, I use 1 1/8" screws.

Re: Equivalent screw size?

thanks. I was planning on using 1-1/8" #6 or #8. But, the local hardware stores (big and little) only carry 1" and 1-1/4".

Re: Equivalent screw size?

Chuck can you give me the equivalent screw size for the Tromso full size loft bed to the following part #s? We just bought this bed for my daughter for her bday on Friday and we'd like to put it up. We are missing most of the screws and parts and didn't realize it. We bought it second hand.

101083
107489
110327

111030


Thanks!!!

Re: Equivalent screw size?

Barb, did you ever find the equivalent screws for the Tromso loft bed? We bought one yesterday and the holes on the support poles for the front of the bunk are too small so we can't use the screws that came with the set. Paid $75 for delivery and don't want the hassle of undoing the whole set and getting them to pick it up again. Any suggestions?

I am thinking of using a substitute screw but worry about the stability if the larger piece is not there.

thanks Sooz

Re: Equivalent screw size?

Hi Barb,

I am looking for the exact same screws. I called IKEA and they said if you have the receipt number they can send you out the parts. So try that first! unfortunately, I bought my bed 4 years ago, and no longer have the receipt...my nearest IKEA is 4 hours away, so if ANYONE knows what the equivalent sizes are please PLEASE post!!!! I'm desperate!

Cheers,
Tan

Re: Equivalent screw size?

Hi!

I got the perfect side panels, but no screws! So, what is the exact drywall screw to use...we have the Rockhammer side. Is it a corse or fine thread and 1 1/8" or 1/ 14"? Please help! The closest Ikea is 30 miles out in the suburbs and we don't have a car! Thanks so very much!
