Wall Anchor

23 February, 2018

Imagine you are going to buy new furniture. What is the most important for you? Is it luxurious design or steady construction of our furniture?

Every one of us wants our home to be a safe and comfortable place to live in. But every home has little, but potential risks. If your furniture is incorrectly installed, you chance consequences to face undesirable problems.

One of the best ways to prevent furniture tip-over accidents is to securely anchor the furniture to the wall.

General rules:

    • Furniture should be successfully installed on the wall.
    • Never place hard products on the shelves, chests or/and drawers which are not designed for it (they may fall down). Instead, place the heavy objects (microwave oven or TV) in the lowest drawers.
    • Forbid the kids to climb on drawers, chests, doors, etc.
    • You should be highly attentive and read the furniture item instruction. If there is written that fixing devices are not included, it does not mean that you should not fix your furniture. Each kind of furniture has its own requirements as well as a kind of necessary anchor and additional tools.
    • Read attentively the furniture item instruction and do not ignore its requirements, warnings, and
  • Do not let your kids grab something that is placed on the top of the furniture.

IKEA has a number of various anchors, which are designed for different purposes.

Bookcase Wall Anchor
