    Its always so hard with a FL thread to know who is being serious and who is taking the piss.

    Looks like a custom piece from Ikea to me. Doubt you can buy them anywhere.

    I would take them with you to Bunnings so you can compare & make sure you get the right ones. If you show them to a staff member they should be able to help you find them.

    Ever tried to find something other than an 8g wood screw in Bunnings? They have a horrible selection for this type of thing.

    Op , do a search for specialty fasteners online there are a few websites out there that will be able to help you. I have purchased from bolt.com.au a few times over the years, very helpful.

    That is a dowel nut or cross dowel nut

    Please don't go asking for a left handed allen key to use with it.

    Hey Myf, you'll need a 'firken tool' for that one.

    They only come in ambidextrous models.

    Hafele should carry them as they're a joinery item.
