Protect Your Family From Toppling Furniture – A Best Practice Guide

Children like climbing on things, especially if there is something attractive up high. Household furniture like bookshelves, wardrobes, storage and entertainment units can be attractive to climb. So too is furniture such as tallboys or home office filing cabinets, where pulled-out drawers can act as stairs for climbing.

If tipped over, the weight of the unit and its contents become a lethal force.
