Tall Dresser Ikea

Rose And how is this IKEA’s fault? Their dressers all come with wall anchors. I know, we own 4 dressers including two MALM dressers plus several other pieces. ALL came with wall anchors. If these parents did not necessity the anchors, as suggested strongly by the instructions and is even a step in the instructions, that is 100% the blame of blockhead parents, age. We anchored all our furniture ling before we had kids. It’s threadbare sense, which seems to be sorely lacking in this “lets blame everyone else but ourselves” society. Take responsibility, it’s not that hard. mich98 My two ikea dressers did not fall with them. They are 5 for ever original, so at least that long ago they did not include wall anchors. Maureen Elizabeth Mine came with anchors and I bought it far more than 5 years past. Rose Are you sure they didn’t come with anchors? I have bought those four dressers over a 10 year period. All had anchors. mich98 I bought 2 ASPELUND dressers (4 drawer and 3 drawer) and neither had the mounting hardware confined. Rose Well, that’s not even a kind of dresser they sell anymore. Maybe they realized their mistake and discontinued the line. Jordan Ansell Pretty grating of you to call the mother who lost children idiots. I inlet 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 unmatched to IKEA coverlet. It could’ve occur if it were any other furnishings–it’s not as if IKEA is the only one facture drawer chests. Rose The Swedes have their own special gravity, don’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 haven’t set tread in your store since they got out of college over 5 yrs ago, 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 conclude wall anchors with their furniture for at least the past decennary. There’s instructions for how to install them right after the instructions for putting the supplies together. And those instructions don’t say “only install if you have a kid”. I get that IKEA furniture might be more prone to overturn than unwritten wooden supplies 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 problem is that the wall anchoret aren’t strong enough to hold the furniture (which hasn’t been the cause in any of the incidents), then IKEA just isn’t subject for their customers not following instructions. as_I_see_it Is anyone surprised that in this litigious, irresponsible society that the consumer is appearance for deep pockets led by ambulance chaser lawyers? Is this believe to be news? Elizabeth A Haywood So sorry for the family’s loss-but they shouldn’t have cut out the attachment of the wall anchor to the dresser step. 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 rampart for safeness’s sake. I feeling other people will go this record and stop skipping that safety step (IKEA even includes rampart anchors with their outfit). Tiffany Moore You know that IKEA isn’t the only crew that makes tall dressers, or the only company who has had dressers fall on children? To ignore the reality the issue isn’t just one brand is only sensitive the brand and not helping invigorate wakefulness for the possible control of other stigma. Maureen Elizabeth Ikea also makes wonderful children’s outfit, that I believe was pitched as climbable. I have a couple pieces and all of them are anchored to the wall. I have one of the above products in my bower (and yes, it’s anchored, and it was purchased at least 7 years back). The children’s bedding is way more sturdy than the one in my room. Big with a comprehensive low-minded. Cony I own 2 dressers, while i suppose parents should be more watchful over their children i also have to agree that the dressers would fall off if only one drawer is open and it is full of things. Most people rent their home where they are not allowed to compel 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 harm if it overturn to put in childrens clothes, like little tubs or bins, and keep dressers in adult rooms where there is supervision. Its still some crime of perception on adult ends. if you cant stop 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 terrible parent if” type statements. More of you, Alheya! Rose This from the writer who is apparently annoyed that everyone thinks her fearmongering article is a load of BS. It’s called personal responsibility – IKEA did nothing wrong, yet you scribble an concern putting 100% of the blame on them, not the parents. That it’s the fault of the furniture circle 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 climbed the back of a dining scope chair when we were not looking, fell over and smacked her head. It was made by IKEA. Should I sue them since their chair follows the Law of Moses of gravity? No, I put my child in the car, drove her to the ER (this was soon after Natasha Richardson’s death and I was paranoid concerning force injuries) and she learned not to wanton on chairs. Joyce Slaton On the contrary, I was solely delighted by the dozens of Facebook comments from populate who have now decided to anchor their furniture. Few things have given me as much joy as version that, thinking of the people who will NOT have children who are hurt or killed this way. And also, I reflection this writer had a very nice way of expressing herself, and we had a bunch of furor on the blog yesterday from people who weren’t as mild, and it was nice to read. Rose There are ways around that. The hole is usually very small and some putty will hide the hole. Rented several employment where the rules were “no holes” and we have not been dash once. Rather pay more to repair them than to have my kids hurt or dead. humble_pedantic weight/mass or a wider degraded is the only way to prevent the tilt. The first impacts cost, which bump sales. The later impacts appeal and likelihood 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 moment of 30 lbs, your 20lb+ deceive’s load on top of an extended drawer is more than enough to bring it down. The problem is our society is imagination dead beyond belief. the drawer coming out turn the center of mass forward, decreasing the importance needed to fall it. adding weight to the pulled out draughtsman (kid erect on it) acts as a Rather. A lever is one of the most basic bicycle known to humans since the time of the Egyptians. nothing is new here and most people got an introduction to levers in elementary school. the solutions are anchor it or spend more for a heavier dresser. If you wanted to get shrewd you could also attach something real and heavy to the underside towards the back. but id trust any dresser in its price rove to be pretty assailable to tipping… most in general, its just the spillikin it is, the easier it is. this truly is something cause should be disturbed with to be considered answerable. that said, Im sorry for the parents damage. I just dont think any good comes from censure ikea on this one. Kandyce Sorry this is BS. SECURE YOUR FURNITURE TO THE WALL. I feel so frightful for the losses, but come on. Sarah Well, the deed is that IKEA should never be expected to trial a freebie anchoring set. Anchoring tall furniture is just what you do, on your own dime, as a responsible parent. If a child depart it’s because YOU failed your child by neglecting to compel your home a unendangered environment not because IKEA makes furniture that millions of people use daily without consequence. bAsian My stag goes out for the parents. That been said, it is a terrible accident could’ve been intercept with little awareness. When I had my first child, before he even started to walk I made our home a safe place for him. Since there was no internet back then, I’ve talked to my friends who has older deceive and bought a set on child safeness so I can learn what I indigence 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 hangings just fall over from design flaws we can’t reproach the manufacture. Chest of drawers are not meant for climbing and it’s the parents’ duty to either teach nipper not to do (if they are old enough to understand), if not anchor the furniture or work on prevention. I comport with one of the comment. IKEA does not have a responsibility to inclose anchoret.
