How to install Ikea Besta wall unit cabinets on drywall?

This is NOT a step-by-step video, please RTFM.

Installing IKEA BESTÅ isn't as easy as you think because the wall units are quite heavy, the problem is that you won't be able to put 2 screws per cabinets on the wood studs easily. This is my way to do it, check it out! Hope this helps.

In summary: 2 drywall anchors + 1 wood screw to the stud per suspension rail.

I've been laughing at all these comments, but now what if this is his real voice?? It's entirely possible. In which case we've been pretty hurtful .

at least have 1 screw inside the stud tho ;p
Hi, noticed you have skirting board and I know the units which rest on the floor have spacers to fill the space behind the wall to allow for wall mounting. However wouldn't this cause the wall cabinet units suspended on the wall to be uneven with the rest of the units looking recessed as they are mounted flush to the wall?

Here's a tip for installing these "self-drilling" strap toggle anchors: After checking to make sure there isn't a stud behind the drywall, drill a hole with an 1/8" brad point bit. This lets you drill the hole exactly on your mark. If you hit something behind the drywall, you'll have to try a different location. Once you’ve punched through the drywall, use a small allen wrench to poke into the hole and make sure you have at least 2-1/2" available behind the wall. Then switch to a 1/2" brad point bit and enlarge the hole. Check your toggle anchor to make sure the plastic guide is engaged correctly with the two plastic straps and slide the toggle into the hole. Fiddle with the straps until the toggle is vertical, then do this: push the whole shebang in as deep as you can. (The metal toggle won't be contacting the back of the wall. That's fine for now) Get the round plastic flange in the hole then press a pair of rubber-handled needle nosed pliers flat against the wall so the closed jaws are pinning the round flange into the hole. Then, while holding the pliers against the wall, pull the plastic straps toward you to secure the toggle against the back of the wall. Bend the plastic straps to break them.

Any idea what the weight limit is for wall mounted Besta cabinets? Have used the suspension rails and fixed to studs...

Were you able to use the IKEA screws to turn into the anchors? I'm about to mount a Besta on a drywall and found some drywall anchor types in the store (here in Australia). Some of them come with a screw but I'm not sure if the head is big enough to turn into the suspension rail. For the ones without screws, the pack suggest to use a 8G screw (4.2mm, which is slightly bigger than the IKEA ones which are 4 mm).
