ToppleStop furniture straps secure furniture and TV sets to wall studs. Earthquake tremors, climbing children and top heavy furniture can injure children or damage contents of chests of drawers, dressers, book cases, entertainment centers and other furniture. Consumer Reports recommends securing furnishings that can be climbed or pushed with ToppleStop furniture anchor straps. By attaching the topple stop anchor strapsto wall studs and to the furniture backs, dangers of furniture toppling onto children are reduced.
Appliances or furniture to be secured must have slip-resistant bases. Use for metal cabinets/appliances or wood furniture. Determine number of fastener sets by the weight of the unit to be stabilized.

Note: "Four Point" attachment (two kits) required for 200 to 400 pound items. Minimum of "Two Point" attachment (one kit) required by up to 200 pounds.
Fastener attachment for Metal Units: Using adhesive pads, attach fasteners to dry surface cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.
Fastener attachment for Wood Units: Using #8 x 1" wood screws, attach fasteners to frame or inside edges (top or sides) of furniture.
Strap attachment: Use #10 x 2" wood screws to wall studs. Use "t-bar" anchors to toggle bolts to attach to metal studs. Wall anchors can be used if each has a minimum holding strength of 100 pounds.
