We all want our homes to be a safe place. But in our homes, accidents can put children at risk. By working together, we can help prevent these accidents and make the home a safer place.
The best way to help prevent furniture tip over accidents is to secure furniture to the wall. Idiya urges customers to inspect their chests of drawers and dressers to ensure that they are securely anchored to the wall using the restraints provided in the packaging.

• Never put a TV or other heavy objects on top of a chest of drawers or any furniture not intended for use with a TV.
• Place heavy objects in the lowest drawers.
