MALM nightstand instructions/help

I just purchased the MALM nightstand on Craigslist to go with my MALM bed and didn't get any instructions. From reading another post about them I've figured out how they attach but I'm not sure what to do with one piece. It kind of looks like this but more square and with smaller holes. Anyone know what it's for?

Thanks.

Did you figure it out? Were you able to get the instructions from somewhere? If yes, can you please post the link or the pdf?

I haven't found any instructions but I'm thinking it's to connect the back of the nightstand to the back of the headboard - probably towards the top.

Re: MALM nightstand instructions/help

Ok, so all I did was use this square piece to attach the back of the nightstand to the back of the headboard and it seems to be fine. I put one of the s brackets on but the nightstand isn't even resting in it - it's a few inches above it. So I didn't even bother with the s bracket on the other side. I've emailed Ikea to ask about instructions but I'm hoping this will be good enough.

Re: MALM nightstand instructions/help

I also recently purchased a Malm bed and night stands. The flat strip with 2 holes in it does connect the night stand to the headboard. The S bracket on mine is also a bit loose and the nightstand does engage the lip of the bracket, but does not rest on the bottom of it.

I did find the instructions at the Ikea sight, here is the link...

Re: MALM nightstand instructions/help

I just purchased the MALM bed frame last month. I now have the extra funds to purchase the nightstands. My "major" concern is that I don't have any holes at the back of my headboard to attach the nightstands to. Am I suppose to make the hole on my own? The instruction number is 18 on the assembly sheet.

Thank you!

Short answer is yes.

Long answer is that you dont have to make a hole just a small punched divit so that you can easily get the screw started. The screw will make its own hole.
