Secure Top-heavy Furniture
Existing furniture can be anchored with inexpensive anti-tip brackets. New furniture over 30” in height, such as dressers, are provided with anti-tip devices. Install them right away, following the manufacturer’s instructions included.
Remove Tempting Objects
Remove items that might tempt kids to climb, such as toys and remote controls, from the top of the TV and furniture.
Open Only One Drawer at a Time
Fully opening more than one drawer at a time, can cause tipping of the unit or put extra strain on the anti-tip brackets. Do not allow children to climb, sit or stand inside open drawers.
Use Sturdy Furniture
Televisions should only be placed on furniture designed to hold a television, such as television stands or media centres and pushed back away from the edge. Mount flat-screen TVs to the wall or to furniture to prevent them from toppling over. Televisions that are not wall mounted should still be anchored to the wall.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to secure TVs and furniture properly.
