If you have young children in your home, you probably spend a lot of time worrying about keeping them safe. There are many dangers in your home, but with some advance thought, you can minimize the risk that the worst happens.

A danger that might not come to mind quickly is that of furniture tip-overs, but this is something that can cause serious injury or even death if it were to happen to a child.

Even at a fairly young age, a child could cause a piece of furniture to tip over if they start climbing on it. To prevent this, it is important to make good use of the tip over brackets that usually come supplied with larger pieces of furniture. These need to be anchored to the wall, preferably installed on a stud to give the furniture the support it needs to avoid a tip over. It is also important to closely follow the installation instructions provided to ensure the bracket won’t detach when the furniture starts tipping.
