Furniture Tip Child Safety Straps

Child Safe Furniture Straps According to CPSC every two weeks a child dies from furniture tipping over. Every 24 minutes, one is injured. The truth is, not many families consider furniture as something that needs to be childproofed, but in reality, it’s one of the top hidden hazards lurking inside your home. Furniture such as dressers, changing tables and bookshelves should all be securely strapped to the wall to avoid a child from pulling it on top of his or herself. Heavy items that can easily fall over need to be pushed back as far as possible, and tall ones, such as lamps, need to be secured too. Flat-screen televisions are what most people normally overlook: They seem out of reach, and too light to cause an issue. and not as overwhelming as old television sets used to be, people tend to leave them as they are. The truth is that a TV is probably what catches a child’s attention the most, and as flat and light as they may seem, if they fall from a considerable height, on top of a small child, they will most definitely cause injuries.
