THE SIMPLE ACT OF ANCHORING YOUR FURNITURE TO THE WALL CAN SAVE YOUR CHILD’S LIFE


“We don’t let our kids ride a bike without a helmet, we buckle them into a car seat, we put up gates to keep them from falling down the stairs, why not anchor your furniture to the wall? From one parent to another, please keep your children safe, understand the dangers of TV and furniture tip-overs.”

 

PREVENTION TIPS


Never allow children to climb or play on furniture.

  • Do not place TVs atop chest of drawers
  • Anchor TVs and furniture with tipping restraints.* Follow the instructions provided
  • Keep remote controls, toys, and other items that might be attractive to children off TV stands or furniture.
  • Keep TV and/or cable cords out of reach of children.
  • Make sure freestanding kitchen ranges and stoves are installed with anti-tip brackets.
  • Supervise children in rooms where these safety tips have not been followed
*Anchoring your furniture will significantly reduce, but not eliminate the risk of tip-over.

FURNITURE TIPPING RESTRAINT


You may find a tip-kit included with your purchase. Please make sure to install the restraint before using the furniture. If the tip restraint does not suit your wall or furniture, visit your local hardware store to find the tip restraint that works for you. Please do not use the item until it has been safely secured. If you did not receive a tip kit with your purchase and would like one, please visit one of our store locations we will gladly provide you with one free of charge with proof of purchase. At Structube, your safety is our priority.

MAKE IT SAFE!


Understand the dangers of TV and furniture tip-overs. Properly securing TVs and
furniture using anti-tip devices can significantly reduce, but not eliminate the risk of
tip-overs. Follow a few simple steps to protect a child from injury and death.

 

• Televisions should only be
placed on furniture designed
to hold a television, such as
television stands or media
units.• Televisions that are not wall
mounted should still be
anchored to the wall.• CRT televisions should only be
placed on furniture designed to
hold a television, and should be
anchored to the wall or to the
TV stand.• Ensure the anti-tip device
used complies with ASTM
standard F3096-14 Standard
Performance for Tipover Restraint(s)
Used with Clothing Storage Unit(s)
• Remove items that might tempt
children to climb, such as toys
and remote controls, from the
top of televisions and furniture.• Supervise children at
play, especially in unfamiliar
environments. Never let them
climb or hang on drawers,
doors, or shelves.• Affix anti-tip devices
immediately to new furniture.
Existing furniture can be affixed
with inexpensive anti-tip
devices which are readily
available.• Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions when securing TVs
and furniture.
