Secure your furniture!
Creating safer homes together
We all want our homes to be a safe place. When we work together, we can reduce the risk of accidents.
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. IKEA urges customers to inspect their IKEA chests of drawers and dressers to ensure that they are securely anchored to the wall using the restraints provided in the packaging.
Should you need a replacement restraint kit to secure the IKEA furniture in your home, you can contact us to order one free of charge. Alternatively, click here, to fill out an online form to place your order. Please ensure you request the part number 106990 in the form.
