    Default Ikea DJ Booth Problems !!

    So I've had the Ikea DJ booth for less than a month now , but never finished it because I've had a problem I can't find the answer too

    The CAPITA angled bracket won't go through the desk because the bottom of it is the same thickness as the desk , no way to tighten the bolt underneath it !

    Anybody else have this problem , and how did you fix it !
    Pictures would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Swede

    I had this exact problem... basically you have to go to a hardware store and get a longer screw, matching bolt and a large washer.

    You can remove the bottom of the bracket and take it with you to the hardware store to get the exact replacement.

    This confused me for a while.

    It is mention in Xonetacular's thread but they should make an edit in the djtt blog post to state this is essential.

    "You will need two long metric bolts and large washers for the capita brackets. These are the exact bolts I used from Lowes: http://www.lowes.com/pd_214487-37672...RL=&facetInfo=
    M10-1.50 x 75'

    Once you get these parts though it's super simple.

    You will also need a drill and i recommend a 13mm drill bit to make the hole. This give you enough wiggle room.

    Make sure you measure 50cm between the holes. Basically 50 cm in - hole 1 - 50 cm - hole 2 - 50cm to end of expedit

    Also the black plastic circle that comes with the capita brackets you swap to the top and use the washer underneath

    You beat me too it. This is what I did, though I didn't use the 50cm spacing as I wanted more room in the middle between the brackets.

    I actually used the Vika Amon table with 6 legs. I bought a second 48" table that sits on top of the first as a second tier. This way I have an elevated tier for dj'ing and a smaller tier for production. The stock bolt fit through the Vika Amon table IIRC. Maybe I'll upload pictures tonight.
