We all want our home to be a safer place. At home, accidents can pose a danger for children. If we work together, we can prevent accidents and make our home a safer place.
The best way to prevent the tipping over of furniture is to securely attach them to the wall. IKEA asks its customers to examine their chests of drawers and dressers to check if they are well secured to the wall with the restraint provided with the product in the package.
If your wall material is not listed or if you have any questions, consult with a local hardware retailer.
