Ikea Malm 4 Drawer Dresser

Rose And how is this IKEA’s fault? Their dressers all come with wall anchors. I cognize, we own 4 dressers including two MALM dressers plus several other pieces. ALL came with wall anchoret. If these parents did not use the anchors, as tempt strongly by the instructions and is even a step in the instructions, that is 100% the blame of idiot parents, period. We anchored all our furniture ling before we had kids. It’s common sense, which seems to be sorely want in this “lets blame everyone else but ourselves” society. Take responsibility, it’s not that unfeeling. mich98 My two ikea dressers did not come with them. They are 5 ages old, so at least that long ago they did not include wall stop. Maureen Elizabeth Mine came with anchoret and I bought it widely more than 5 years ago. Rose Are you sure they didn’t come with anchors? I have boughten those four dressers over a 10 year period. All had anchors. mich98 I bend 2 ASPELUND dressers (4 drawer and 3 draughtsman) and neither had the mounting hardware included. Rose Well, that’s not even a gracious of dresser they house anymore. Maybe they realized their err and discontinued the flax. Jordan Ansell Pretty harsh of you to call the father who astray children idiots. I hope you never have to go through a tragedy one day. Jules I feel bad for the family, but it’s not as if gravity is unique to IKEA furniture. It could’ve happened if it were any other furnishings–it’s not as if IKEA is the only one making drawer chests. Rose The Swedes have their own singular seriousness, assume’t ya know? *sarcasm* Kierra Come on IKEA! Why haven’t you tracked down every last piece of furniture that you’ve ever sold (even if the purchasers asylum’t set foot in your store since they got out of college over 5 yrs past, have changed addresses several times, and/or gave the furniture away to someone else) and forced the owners to install these wall anchors like you suggested they do when they bought the furniture? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! IKEA has been including wall anchors with their outfit for at least the after decade. There’s instructions for how to install them right after the instructions for putting the bedding together. And those instructions assume’t say “only install if you have a kiddie”. I get that IKEA furniture might be more prone to toppling than traditional spiritless furniture because of it’s lighter backboard (ie it’s more front-heavy than you’d expect), but that’s why they say to install the anchors. Unless the question is that the bailey anchors aren’t strong enough to hold the furniture (which hasn’t been the case in any of the incidents), then IKEA just isn’t subject for their customers not following instructions. as_I_see_it Is anyone amazement that in this litigious, irresponsible society that the consumer is face for deep pocket-size led by ambulance driver lawyers? Is this supposed to be news? Elizabeth A Haywood So sorry for the kindred’s loss-but they shouldn’t have cut out the connection of the wall anchor to the dresser track. With all of the fracking earthquakes that have been going on, no part of the country is safe from earthquakes any more and it really is imperative that all tall pieces of furniture be anchored to the wall for safety’s sake. I hope other people will read this record and stop skipping that safety step (IKEA even includes wall anchors with their furniture). Tiffany Moore You know that IKEA isn’t the only company that constitute tall dressers, or the only company who has had dressers fall on offspring? To ignore the fact the issue isn’t just one brand is only hurting the brand and not help raise awareness for the potential danger of other brands. Maureen Elizabeth Ikea also makes wonderful children’s furniture, that I believe was pitched as climbable. I have a couple pieces and all of them are anchored to the canaut. I have one of the above products in my bedroom (and yes, it’s anchored, and it was bought at least 7 years past). The qualifier’s furniture is interval more sturdy than the one in my office. Big with a wide base. Cony I own 2 dressers, while i believe parents should be more watchful over their children i also have to agree that the dressers would fall off if only one draughtsman is frank and it is full of things. Most people rent their domicile where they are not sanction to make holes or nothing to attach the anchors Kandyce Then don’t buy tall dressers Alheya Then to those that cant, you make due, have something thats lightweight and wont do much wrong if it overturn to put in childrens clothes, like little tubs or bins, and keep dressers in Nestor rooms where there is supervision. Its still some lack of perception on adult ends. if you cant anchor it, then you change your way and work around it by utilizing something else thats safer. Joyce Slaton I appreciate this comment very much, good smart thoughtful advice rather than insults and “you’re a formidable parent if” type statements. More of you, Alheya! Rose This from the author who is apparently annoyed that everyone thinks her fearmongering article is a load of BS. It’s appeal to personal responsibility – IKEA did nothing wrong, yet you engrave an article putting 100% of the culpability on them, not the parents. That it’s the fault of the furniture companies and they need to find some way to defy gravity. It’s not like the information hasn’t been around for years, and blasted at us from every source. I knew this back when I was a high schooler. My kid ascent the back of a dining Seat chair when we were not looking, earnest over and smacked her head. It was made by IKEA. Should I sue them since their chair follows the laws of importance? No, I put my daughter in the car, drove her to the ER (this was soon after Natasha Richardson’s death and I was paranoid about head injuries) and she learned not to play on chairs. Joyce Slaton On the contrary, I was simply pleased by the dozens of Facebook comments from people who have now decided to anchor their furniture. Few things have given me as much pleasure as reading that, cogitant of the people who will NOT have offspring who are hurt or killed this way. And also, I thought this writer had a very exquisite way of expressing herself, and we had a bunch of furor on the blog yesterday from people who weren’t as gentle, and it was nice to read. Rose There are ways around that. The hole is usually very small and some putty will dissemble the hole. Rented several site where the rules were “no holes” and we have not been dinged once. Rather pay more to renew them than to have my kids grieve or deathlike. humble_pedantic weight/mass or a wider low-minded is the only way to prevent the tip. The first impacts suffering, which impacts sales. The later impacts appeal and sign of people buying it for space constrained apartments…(ive never seen a dresser with an extra wide base). Most of this is general sense. if the dresser has a weight of 30 lbs, your 20lb+ banter’s weight on top of an extended drawer is more than enough to bring it down. The question is our society is brain dead beyond belief. the drawer approach out manage the center of mass forward, decreasing the power needed to topple it. adding weight to the pulled out draughtsman (offspring stepping on it) acts as a lever. A lever is one of the most basic machines given to humans since the time of the Egyptians. nothing is unspent here and most people got an introduction to treadle in elementary school. the solutions are anchor it or consume more for a heavier dresser. If you wanted to get crafty you could also attach something solid and heavy to the underside towards the back. but id expect any dresser in its price sift to be pretty assailable to tipping… most in general, its just the lighter it is, the easier it is. this truly is something parents should be concerned with to be considered responsible. that said, Im sorry for the parents loss. I just dont think any good comes from blaming ikea on this one. Kandyce Sorry this is BS. SECURE YOUR FURNITURE TO THE WALL. I feel so horrible for the losses, but arrive on. Sarah Well, the furniture is that IKEA should never be expected to issue a freebie anchoring kit. Anchoring brave furniture is just what you do, on your own dime, as a responsible parent. If a child dies it’s because YOU failed your child by neglecting to make your home a unendangered surrounding not because IKEA makes furnishing that millions of people use daily without result. bAsian My hart goes out for the parents. That been said, it is a terrible accident could’ve been prevented with inconsiderable awareness. When I had my first child, before he even sally to walk I made our asylum a safe place for him. Since there was no internet back then, I’ve talked to my befriend who has older eanling and boughten a book on child safety so I can learn what I need to be “aware” as a parent … no apartment comes with child safety system nor did it come with a book on “how to”. I understood and knew that it was my responsibility as a parent. Unless a furniture just fall over from design flaws we can’t reprehension the devise. Chest of drawers are not meant for climbing and it’s the parents’ duty to either teach yeanling not to do (if they are antique enough to understand), if not anchoret the furniture or work on prevention. I agree with one of the explanation. IKEA does not have a responsibility to include anchor.
