Kids’ Bookcase Safety
When outfitting your child’s bedroom with a new bookcase, remember to keep safety in mind. When not secured properly to the wall, bookcases can potentially topple over and cause injury or even death. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched the Anchor It! campaign in 2015 to educate parents and caregivers about the dangers of falling furniture.
According to Anchor It!, 469 children died in the U.S. from furniture, TV and appliance tip-over incidents between 2000 and 2019. Almost half of all tip-over deaths occur in a bedroom.
To keep your kids safe, secure furniture with anti-tip devices like this furniture wall anchor kit. Made with durable steel, it can withstand a load of up to 400 lbs. Also remove items from the top of the bookcase that might tempt kids to climb, like toys and remote controls.
