frequently asked questions

you asked, we answer

material

What material is the qlib made from?

ABS plastic, which is a durable choice, that you probably have all around your home - for example your LEGO bricks!

Is it safe for kids?

Yes, ABS plastic is used for a large number of toys, including LEGO bricks. But please note: Improper usage, especially in conjunction with high pressure might cause that the qlib breaks, the sharp-edged pieces would be a danger to your children.

How do you clean it?

ABS plastic is easy to clean, use some water and maybe a little soap. Beware of strong chemical cleaners, scratchy sponges or boiling hot water, they might alter the surface of your qlib and make it less shiny.

specifications

What dimensions has a qlib?

The measures are a little over those of a standard Kallax door: 335mm * 335mm * 18mm

Will you make other sizes?

In short: Yes. One of our future goals is a second variant for IKEA Besta & Stuva. In addition to that we have many other fittings to IKEA products in mind, that need further fitting and prototyping.

How much does one qlib weigh?

Our prototypes weigh 230 grams, the final product in ABS will be a little heavier.

compatibility

How do I affix my qlib to my IKEA Kallax?

You can find the montage instructions of the qlib on our website qlib.it and you will receive an instruction sheet with your qlib.

Do I need an IKEA Kallax to use a qlib?

The qlib was designed on the base of an IKEA Kallax. But if you own a lookalike IKEA Kallax shelf you can use the qlib as well.

colors

How and when can I choose the color for each qlib?

Following the end of our Kickstarter campaign, every backer will be contacted and asked to select a color for each qlib. We will be sending the survey through Backer Kit.

Can I get other colors?

There is a special pledge level for individual colors, however we can just produce them in a limited number. If you want to place a bigger order in let's say your company color, please don't hesitate to contact us!

quantities

Can I get moooooore?

You can always pledge more. The price for one additional qlib varies on your pledge level. Look for the comment in the pledge description that says "For an additional qlib please add **,**€ per qlib to your pledge"

How can I get an uneven number of qlibs?

You can always pledge more. For three qlibs, just pledge for two and add half of the price. The price for one additional qlib always varies on your pledge level. Look for the comment in the pledge description that says "For an additional qlib please add **,**€ per qlib to your pledge"

Can I pledge for more than one reward?

Kickstarter currently doesn't allow pledges for more than one reward. But we hear you: By the end of the campaign, you can order any additional item you want through the backerkit survey.

shrink & stretch goals

What stretch goals will you offer?

Please check the campaign description, we will add an extra section for that when we surpass our funding goal.

How about a shrink goal?

When the campaign is a huge success, the idea is easy: Use extra resources to shrink the time until you have your qlib delivered. Sadly, development is already done and production has a defined timeframe, machines don't run faster with more money. There is a way to speed up the shipping process between tooling and production and we are looking into it.

after the campaign

When will you send your survey?

After a successful campaign we will send our survey between May 30th and June 3rd 2016.

What kind of information do you collect in your survey?

We will collect your shipping address and your order. Your shipping address includes everything the package needs to reach its destination: Name, street, city, postal code, country and if needed additional instructions (for example your apartment number). 

When will you ship?

We will start shipping by mid of April. 

Will you ship to early birds first?

Yes! First come, first served. Early birds and most of the exclusive pledges will be sent out when the first batch comes hot off the press.
