IKEA Canada advises the use of wall anchoring for IKEA chests and dressers
IKEA Canada is urging customers to inspect their MALM 3, 4 and 6-drawer chests and all other chests and dressers to ensure they are securely anchored to the wall.
At IKEA, product safety is our top priority, which is why we are reminding customers to always follow assembly instructions and safety warnings carefully and to install any safety devices provided with our products.
IKEA furniture is safe when assembled and installed according to assembly instructions. All IKEA chests of drawers contain tip-over restraints with assembly instructions in the flat package upon purchase. IKEA advises customers who have purchased a dresser from IKEA to install the anti-tip devices included in the packaging of the dresser. Any customer who did not keep their device can receive a wall anchoring kit free of charge by visiting the Secure It! Creating safer homes together webpage www.IKEA.ca/saferhomestogether or by contacting the Customer Support Centre at 1-800-661-9807 and IKEA will deliver one to their home.
No further action is required if chests of drawers have already been securely anchored to the wall in accordance with the instructions originally provided with the product.
We take our role as a responsible retailer very seriously and want to raise the awareness of the hazard of furniture tip-over and how to prevent tip over accidents in customers’ homes. Anchoring furniture to the wall is the best way to help prevent tip-over accidents.
