On June 27, 2016 Ikea decided to recall approximately 29 million of dangerous dressers! They reported that there were at least three deaths of children with one of their dresser series and they strongly urged to “Please take them out of the room”.
While we all know Ikea to be a well-known brand that offers inexpensive furniture, cheap isn’t always the best. Not only for quality, but also for safety.
Prevent furniture tip over injuries and deaths! The safest way is to anchor them into the walls for safety. Anchoring furniture that could tip over is fairly easy and proven to save lives. The fix is relatively inexpensive and well worth every penny if you have little ones that love to climb and don’t realize the dangers. Losing a child is devastating to any parent and family and being able to prevent it at any cost is well worth it! You can purchase Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps here at Babies R Us for $4.99.
When anchoring your furniture, be sure to:
- Use two restraints for each piece of furniture, anchoring them on either side.
- Make sure to install them into solid wood and into the wall studs.
- Ensure the restraints are tight and check them regularly
