"I needed 4 metal dowels in order to rebuild an old melamine faced chipboard wardrobe.Even though this product came in a pack of 50, it was still good value. Excellent speedy service at Screwfix in Aintree."
"I had mislaid the fixings supplied with an Ikea Buddy bookcase, so bought these with the cam locks (item 45045) that these screw into and was able to assemble the bookcase quickly and easily. Having a range of knock-down fixings that can be used with any flat-pack is a real boon."
"Do the job and better than those provided by the flat pack manufacturers. Pity they're not sold in smaller packs for the DIY customer. By the way, on the ratings "features" really is not relevant. Why not have a "not relevant" box for the ratings?"
"This product used to be good quality. Latest batch has very poor quality threads, roughly machined finish and is of imprecise lengths. (Some a millimeter short). They have smaller diameter shanks but needed a larger pilot hole for the screws whose thread is less deep, therefore a shallow 'bite'.
My problem was that I had been ultra careful drilling precise holes based on the dowels I had left over from a previous consignment. All the holes were incorrect for the later version."
