Your home is your child's playground. Make sure it's a safe one.
About every 43 minutes, fallen furniture or a toppled TV sends a child to the emergency room. Sometimes these accidents are fatal.
You can help prevent tip-overs with a few simple precautions.
Anchor your furniture
Anchor dressers, shelves, tall furniture and TVs to the wall with anti-tip brackets or devices. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to secure the item correctly.
If the item didn't come with an anchoring device, you can purchase the materials you need at a hardware store.
