Furniture Tip-Overs

A child searching for something in a chest-of-drawers pulls out all the drawers. A child in the climbing stage tries to scale a bookcase. A child scrambles for the remote that has been placed atop a TV. All three of these scenarios can result in tragedy, when the item in question topples over on top of the child. Anchor tall pieces of furniture to the wall, or use anti-tip devices. Appliances can also be tipped over by a child, especially if there is a door that when open forms a convenient surface for climbing on.
