Installing the IKEA MOPPE mini chest of drawers in the IVAR side unit. Very easy to do. No glue or screws needed.
IKEA items used:
- 8 IVAR metal rods 40 x 6 mm (comes with the IVAR shelves)
- 1 IKEA MOPPE mini chest of drawers 42 x 32 cm
- IVAR side unit (50cm depth)
How to add mini drawers to IVAR side unit
Make 4 x 6mm holes on each side of the IKEA MOPPE box.
The top two pair of holes are situated 3.2 mm from the top edge and 2.7 mm apart.

I prefer centered for balance. But that is flexible.
They should fit the holes in the IVAR system.
Now for the bottom pair of holes, I made them 25.7 mm below. 3.2 mm from the bottom edge.
Do remove the drawers before drilling the holes.
Push the rods from the inside through the new holes and into the IVAR holes on the side unit.
It has to be a tight fit so you may need a hammer.
The size of the metal rods fit just right to allow the drawers to move.
It is very stable and strong mount.
