How to quiet the IKEA Rusch Clock

Is the ticking of the IKEA RUSCH Clock driving you up the wall? Here’s how to hush it.


Remove the cover using a flat head screw driver. Look carefully at where the cover fits into the clock base. A little pressure in the right places and it will pop off easily.

Now – simply remove the second hand. That’s it!

The second hand is creating most of the noise and the clock will work perfectly without it!

I also wanted to deal with the boring plastic. I used an inexpensive acrylic paint and brushed on two coats to the inside of the clock frame, letting the paint dry between applications. Voila!
