Over at our IH FB Group, Ritu asks “People who have done this, how do you keep the wood plank from moving on the ALEX drawer units?
Mine keeps moving with the slightest pull/push.” (Photo below not my own, just to illustrate the setup.)
Teresa says, “The tops of the ALEX units should have silicone/ rubber circles that should keep the desktop from shifting. When you say it moves, is it the tabletop that moves or the ALEX units, or both? The tabletop shouldn’t move.”
Teresa was referring to the rubber bumpers in Step 21 of the assembly instruction.
For Ritu, the bumpers are probably the easiest place to start.
Hope it works out.
