We bought two 3 drawerElizabethWe bought two 3 drawer chests to fit between furniture we already had and it was exactly the size, shape and colour we were after. The only downside is that if you open the drawers too wide the screw that holds the drawers in the runners can stick and you need to loosen or tighten it to get the drawer working again. Still very pleased with them and they look good.5
Great design - solidKath65Love it, beautiful piece of furniture5
Great value!ness123I bought a pair of these to use as bedside tables. A lick of chalk paint to be incorporated into our bedroom colours and they came up beautiful! They would also look great stained as well.5
Good draw setDman1249Very happy with the size of it and the draws. Does what it is built to do.4
Rast chest of 3 drawersLou 26Purchased this chest of drawers ... the assembly was fairly easy. Only problem was the screws for attaching drawer knobs was of poor quality the metal stripped when attaching using screwdriver.Had to purchase better quality screws to complete the job. The end result was a lovely set of drawers4
Solid and sturdyTahliaharry11We got these for our young children and the drawers are very strudy and solid wood which we were not expecting. We have purchased 5 of these drawers and hilghly recommend them.5
VersatileAJP0104I bought this and am using it to store my jewellery. I love this products versatility4
Can"t believe these are still being produced as isDonbiemI bought this over a year ago and have persisted with it and am now looking for a replacement. Extremely difficult for my 11 year old to pull the drawers in and out - as per other comments. Tracks are a horrid plastic system. One snapped off within a week of installing but as a single parent I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning. I also thought Ikea manufacturing is always so spot on so it must have been my dodgy assembly. No, it's the same fault others have experienced. As other users say, drawers don't slide. Very sad as I was happy to find something that fit the space and was in a sustainable product. Pity it is most likely going to end up being scrapped.1
Don’t buy this!Xs339I was building the drawer as per the instructions and the base has snapped. But the way the base snapped means you have to rip it all apart but IKEA refuses to refund this faulty product. Also half the drawer has no back.1
Solid woodSAMcCEasy to construct (as you would expect) a solid well proportioned piece of furniture. Took paint well. Looks smart.5
Looks niceNickirastHandy and useful. Easy to put together5
Great Product - Room For ImprovementScentedbloomReceived as gift, love the natural look and simplicity, general height and width great however, unbelievably disappointed that the depth of drawers is so minimal and they cant open more to ensure easy access (more depth would ensure more stability). Would also love if they had more designs to the Rast range e.g. bigger chest of drawers or shelves such as expedit/kallax to tie in with a rooms design/look (I stick to the one model/design/range) when doing so.3
Sliders are terrible!AlJBThe sliders are terrible. If you use the locking screw they hardly open enough to put items in. Great for an Ikea hack with better drawer sliders, a coat of paint and some bracing3
ItashThe knobs won't screw in completely so have 3 that are floppy'.2
DisappointingDocMartin13I purchased this less than six months ago and the drawer runners are breaking. The safety feature that stops the drawers being fully opened is also frustrating when trying to put things in the drawers.1
Very small and simpleRod83Was simple to put together but not very big1

Secure your home from tipping furniture

When your child begins to crawl and climb, the whole home turns into an exciting adventure land. But, since the toddler doesn’t have any risk awareness, the home environment can hold some hazards, for example furniture that can tip over. Sometimes it can be difficult to see the risks at home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

Low furniture can tip too

One might think that only high, narrow furniture can tip over – not a low, deep chest of drawers filled with heavy things. But, if several drawers are open, the centre of gravity shifts and the chest of drawers tips over. Unfortunately, both children and adults can be seriously injured, even fatally, if they end up under the weight of a falling chest of drawers. Accidents can also happen because heavy objects on top of a piece of furniture fall down, for example, a TV. The heavier things, the more serious consequences. Experience shows that it’s absolutely safest to secure all furniture that risk tipping over to a wall.

Remember the laws of physics?

When we develop our furniture, we do everything we can to make them as stable and safe as possible. It affects the choice of materials and the furniture’s construction. But, we haven’t yet figured out how to outsmart the laws of nature. Like the fact that a pulled out drawer works like a lever. Perhaps you remember the principle of leverage from the physics lessons in school? If not, it can be described like this; even a small weight can shift the centre of gravity considerably if the weight is applied to a pulled out drawer (or an open door). It means that a small child that stands, sits or climbs on an open drawer can cause a large chest of drawers to tip over if it’s not secured – despite the child’s low weight.

Children and tipping chests of drawers

Children are curious and creative. That’s how they learn new things and discover the world around them. But, it also contributes to children 1-7 years old being more accident-prone. And the smallest ones, 1-4 years old, are most at risk of serious injuries. That’s why a chest of drawers – no matter model or size – can be a hazard if it isn’t secured to the wall. There are examples from all over the world where children have pulled out one or several drawers and climbed on them like a ladder, hung on, heaved up on, or climbed into them. But, by always securing your chest of drawers to the wall you can prevent and minimize the risks for children who explore the world.

Adults and tipping chests of drawers

It isn’t just children who accidentally tip over chests of drawers and risk injuries. Even as adults we sometimes open several drawers at the same time, especially if we’re in a hurry. Another mistake we sometimes make is to put too many or too heavy things in the front of the drawers. In all these cases the centre of gravity shifts outside the base of the furniture and they tip over. An uneven floor, a carpet edge or a thick wall-to-wall carpet can also cause instability and tipping accidents.

Common myths and misconceptions

Sometimes it can be hard to discover the potential hazards in your own home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

No matter how logical this might feel, it’s actually wrong. All furniture can tip over. They become unstable if they have open drawers or doors that work as a lever and move the centre of gravity. The force that’s generated when furniture tip over can be strong and cause very serious accidents – especially if they’re heavy-loaded.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip too and risk injuring someone. If several drawers are opened at the same time, the centre of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the centre of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the centre of gravity the same way. That’s why you should always follow the assembly instructions that show how to secure your furniture to the wall.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

As a parent, it’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Unfortunately, many accidents happen when you lack foresight. Luckily you have good possibilities to minimize the risks if you secure chests of drawers and other furniture to the wall – even in rooms where the children don’t spend much time.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. But, latching drawers and doors can’t replace securing the furniture and doesn’t eliminate all risks. A child learning to walk usually likes to heave up against a chest of drawers by pulling a handle, and can thereby make it tip over.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

When children play, they sometimes forget what you have told them. Just because they are older doesn’t mean it’s all safe. In addition, many adults, especially elderly, hurt themselves badly, sometimes fatally, in accidents with furniture that tip over.

I rent my home and can’t drill holes in the wall

Most landlords in most parts of the world think it’s OK if you secure your furniture to create a safe home for your children. But, it’s good to talk to your landlord and perhaps explain what risks there are. Feel free to spread some of the knowledge we are sharing here.

The accident risk seems small, do I have to care?

More people than one might think are injured every year in accidents with tipping furniture. Between 2006 and 2016 approximately 47,000 children under the age of 18 had to seek medical care in the US because of accidents with tipping chests of drawers (source: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nov 2017). Holes in the wall are actually quite simple to fix – there’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.

Secure your chest of drawers, simple and safe

When you buy a chest of drawers from IKEA you should always follow the assembly instructions and secure it with the accompanied fittings. They’re easy to mount, and screws and plugs are included. Just fill the holes with putty when you want to move your chest of drawers, or are moving to another home.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

All furniture can tip over, especially if the drawers are opened and the centre of gravity shifts.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip over too, so always follow the assembly instructions.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

It’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Many accidents happen when you lack foresight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. But, it doesn’t replace securing the furniture to the wall.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

But, they easily forget. It isn’t all safe just because they are older.

My chest of drawers is stable and from a well-known furniture company

Even the seemingly most stable piece of furniture can tip over.

The risk of accidents seem small, do I have to care?

People are injured in these kinds of accidents every year. There’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.
