Hating IKEA spare parts

We need this part!

Our TV stand was broken when our darling little boy was learning to stand up. IKEA doesn't have this part available in the store, and we can't order one because it's been longer than 90 days since we bought it.

Where can I find one? Well, two, actually.

It's part number 115280 for the Tobo TV unit.


  1. Try the twitterverse for this. I bet IKEA monitors tweets for these kinds of complaints.

    On a similar vein... I am very annoyed that IKEA doesn't keep their product lines active forever. For instance, I want a nightstand to match a dresser we bought 3 years ago but no luck! I guess I can't blame them too much... Target sure doesn't keep their products around forever. Big furniture manufacturers don't either. It's still annoying, though.

    Good luck with your search.

  2. Same thing needed! We have two of them broken in the same way, thanks to our little one. Did you find a solution?

  3. I called the Customer Service phone number and though I wasn't expecting it, got the piece in the mail about a month later.

  4. Hey! just want to give you a shout out, you are the greatest!
