nice design, work perfect, my OCD say i nedd a biger clip whit exsact same design. so i`m waiting on the bigbrother ;)

Thanks, I'll look into getting the bigger ones posted. It's the exact same design, just bigger fitting the larger boxes. I have made some and use them on one box and they seems to work OK... I just think I made them a little too big, but I'll try to get them uploaded soon.


for those looking for the same thing for 45L SAMLA box, i made it here:

Lid clips for the 45L IKEA SAMLA storage boxes

That's cool! Nice with the little logo in there ;-)

I have also designed some for the big boxes, but I'm not 100% satisfied with them, so haven't put them up yet.


thank you for liking my rendition! my workshop is full of this bigger boxes! i thought the logo is a fun touch haha. Seems to work nicely for now! i was offline when i did mine, didn't got a chance to see your version! i am sure its great too!

Excellent design, thank you very much for posting these! They are a great fit on the 22L boxes we got. I resized them to be 40mm high and they are super sturdy (check if you need the resized model).

Also, at least in the US, Ikea does not manufacture the clips for the bigger boxes anymore (checked in Emeryville, CA). The Ikea website confirms this ( This is a different situation than in Europe, where they still sell them and in all sizes (cf for instance the French site at

Thanks again for sharing your files!

Samla Clips for smaller Ikea boxes - 40 mm height - 6 items

Hi Vincent,

Great to hear that you find the clips useful! If IKEA has stopped making the bigger ones, I guess it's time to make a variant that will also fit those... I gotta look into that.


Hi, I have seen your images for the IKEA Samla clips for the small boxes. I do not have a 3d printer nor do I have access to one. Do you sell these clips already printed out - or does anyone else who has printed them? If so, I would be interested in purchasing some for a reasonable price. Thanks.

Hi smileadele,

My recommendation if you don't have a 3D printer is to either stop by your local hackerspace or makerspace, which will likely have a 3D printer you can use for this or have a look at, where you will most likely be able to find someone local to you that can print out the parts for you.


How much to scale 45l box


I don't know how much to scale, or if they can simply be scaled, it might be necessary to adjust the dimensions individually.

I only have the smaller boxes, and IKEA makes clips for the bigger ones.


These are great! Very easy to print, fit perfectly while being easily removable. Good design work.
