Hackers Help: Make a Taller Footrest?

dagotto footrest taller

I purchased a DAGOTTO footrest, black.

Dagotto footrest

Nifty little thing, but too short for me and my slightly too tall desk. Any ideas to make this taller??




Hi Ian

How about cutting a piece of wood in the same dimensions as the faceplate and then glueing it on top of the footplate? If you’re not looking for a big leap in height, it should do the trick.

Get your local hardware shop to make the cuts for you, if you don’t have the toolsir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=ur2&o=1. Just bring along the footrest as a template.

You may also sand and paint the board before glueing it down.

Let us know if that works.
