Safer homes together

Secure it! Preventing furniture tip-over accidents.

Safer Homes
We all want our homes to be a safe place. But in our homes, accidents can put children at risk. Working together, we can help prevent these accidents and make the home a safer place.

Should you need any restraint kit to secure the IKEA furniture at your home, please visit the Customer Service Counter at our Hong Kong IKEA stores to get a free kit.
Secure it! Use the tip-over restraint provided with the product and the right hardware for your wall type. Consult the enclosed guide for help with hardware.
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.
Never let children climb or hang on drawers, doors or shelves.
