Looking to design a children's room?
There is a voluntary standard - ASTM F2057 that lays out safety specifications for preventing tip-overs.

Keep these 4 things in mind to prevent this outcome

  1. There is a voluntary standard - ASTM F2057 that lays out safety specifications for preventing tip-overs.
  2. Know which pieces of furniture fall under this potential hazard. Here is a good article from Kids Today that gives more details of the standard and different pieces of furniture.
  3. 'Secure It!' was launched by Ikea and 'Anchor It!' was launched by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, two educational campaigns to prevent furniture and TV tip overs.
  4. Be cautious, for example, if the piece of furniture comes with anchors, be sure to use them. Also you can utilize pieces of furniture that incorporate anti-tip features. For example, Universal Furniture's Smartstuff introduced the Axis line which utilizes their new SafeStop drawer mechanism.
