Question GORM: The pine shelving for garages

I was in IKEA Covina , CA today, and I bought some pieces out of the GORM line. I was noticing that the metal cross-braces come with the pre-packaged GORM kits, but are not available for those of us assembling our own GORM design. How can I get my hands on a cross-brace without buying one of the big kits?

Re: GORM: The pine shelving for garages

hmmm, i don't know, cause i built my own, but have cross braces. maybe it's cause i started out with a shelf set as a center piece.
Are you doing a large build? cause if not you might not need them. i'm sure you could get something comparable at a hardware store.

Hi ikeahm! Welcome to IKEAFANS!

I once bought a bookcase that utilized a cross-brace in the AS-IS room, but it came with no hardware. I went to returns/exchanges and they gave me all the hardware and I purchased the cross-brace for something ridiculously inexpensive like $2. This was over 15 years ago, though so prices may have gone up.

So - ask in the parts department of returns/exchanges.

Susan

Re: GORM: The pine shelving for garages

Let me know the next time you're out towards my way ... I have some leftover Journalist cross braces. They were marked down to a mere 0.25 when they discontinued them.

Otherwise, I'm sure these could work too:
IKEA | home | Work area | Work area storage | Storage combinations | IVAR storage system | All options | OBSERVATÖR Cross-brace

Re: GORM: The pine shelving for garages

Yes observator is the cross brace. It is the same as for the Ivar units.
