One common danger for young children is when they try to climb furniture. Furniture tip-overs could seriously injure or even kill a child that gets caught underneath. Kids do love to climb things, especially if they are trying to get to something that is out of reach, so how can you make sure that your furniture doesn’t become a death trap? Usually, you will find the solution to the problem included in the box the furniture came in. Most large pieces of furniture come with a tip-over bracket, but of course, these will only serve their purpose if they are installed properly.
It is very important that the bracket is attached to a stud since your drywall won’t be able to hold up the weight of the child as well as the piece of furniture if it were to tip. It should also be attached to a sturdy part of the piece of furniture since it could come loose otherwise. Be careful to follow the installation instructions provided.
