anti tipping devices wall anchorsAccidents happen, especially where little climbers are concerned. While every parent does their best to mitigate risk and injury, home safety and child safety products are included from our manufacturers for a reason. Anti-tip devices, like wall anchoring systems, are included with dressers and bookcases to prevent tipping. While it may seem a cumbersome step while assembling and installing a new piece of furniture, these simple devices can prevent a serious accident from happening.

In addition to installing the anti-tip devices, Natart Juvenile, College Woodwork and Dutailier also have some additional advice for parents:

  1. Place the heaviest items or objects on the lowest shelves or drawers
  2. Never put a television or other heavy objects on top of a chest of drawers unless the product is specifically intended for supporting a television.
  3. Teach children about the dangers of climbing or hanging from shelves, doors and drawers.

On behalf of everyone at Sleepy Hollow Children’s Furniture, we would like to remind our customers to please follow all the assembly instructions and to heed the safety warnings. Always install the safety devices included with our products or ask us for assistance should you require additional precautions.
