You’ve heard about it on the news or seen it on social media. On average, a child dies every 10 days when a TV or furniture falls onto him or her. 91% of these fatalities occur in their own home.

Anchoring your furniture to the wall is easy, inexpensive, and only take a few minutes. Just a few simple steps and basic tools could save a child from injury.

  1. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to secure TVs and furniture properly.
  2. Mount flat-screen TVs to the wall or to furniture to prevent them from toppling over.
  3. Existing furniture can be anchored with inexpensive anti-tip brackets. New furniture, such as dressers, are sold with anti-tip devices. Install them right away.
