How to Secure Furniture to Wall Using Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps

Instructions for Assembly and Use

CAUTION: Always use a minimum of 2 straps (1 pair) per item. Additional straps should be added for extra safety on tall and heavy furniture. We recommend adding 1 to 2 safety straps for furniture 4 feet and wider. Stacked furniture (2 piece unites) like china cabinets and hutches, need to be secured together, before fastening. For this we recommend mending plates or straps (available at your retailer or your local hardware store.)

Step 1: Locate the wall studs behind the furniture. Mark studs on both wall and furniture top and mark height of furniture on wall.

CAUTION: Always use studs and mount each strap to a separate stud. Furniture should be as close to entered on the wall studs as possible.

Step 2: Slide furniture away from wall, allowing yourself enough room to work.

Step 3: Using the brackets marked “wall” make marks on the wall studs for pilot holes about 9” below the item’s top. Drill pilot holes with a 1/8” drill bit.

Step 4: Screw wall brackets into wall studs using the 1 1/2” screws provided.

Step 5: Locate the brackets marked “furniture” and the areas previously marked on the furniture top in Step 1. Using these brackets, mark and drill pilot holes so brackets are aligned with previous marks. Screw the brackets into the furniture top using the 1” screws provided.

CAUTION: For furniture with particle board or thin plywood type backing, brackets must be screwed into solid top or back brace. When placing screws in bureaus, check before hand and make certain they will not interfere with the normal function of the top drawer.

Step 6: Slide furniture back into position and hook silver buckle to strap on furniture bracket.

Step 7: Pull strap on furniture bracket until all slack in the strap is eliminated. Do this for both straps.

Note: Replace brackets if they become damaged during use.

Anchor The Furniture In Your Home With Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps

1 - Install A Baby Safety Wall Strap And Secure Unstable Furnitures

The first way to childproof the furniture in the home is to find unstable furniture and use products like our Safety 1st Furniture Wall Straps to prevent them from fall down or moving when young children accidently bump or touch them.  In addition to this, find edges and hard corners in the furniture around the home and soften them using foam or guards.

2 - Remove Unstable Furniture From The Home

Unstable furniture can easily fall down on top of young children who accidentally bump into it.  The fastest and safest way to remove the threat of furniture falling on top of the young children in the home is to move the unstable furniture pieces out of the room and into secure areas of the home that are supervised by adults.

3 - Clean Furniture Regularly

As clutter and mess build up on the furniture inside the home, young children can feel the urge to play around and touch the things on the furniture.  This can lead to dangerous situations that can cause accidents to the children like touching a sharp object, moving the furniture around, or spilling items.  

With clean, stable furniture, the possibility of a harmful accident occurring to the young children inside the home will decrease tremendously.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Are furniture wall straps removable if I need to get behind the furniture?
No, they are not. The furniture would be difficult to move.

Do they come with screws for the installation?
Yes, they do.

How does the wall strap attaches to the piece of furniture? Do you have to drill holes in the furniture side, or is it some kind of adhesive?
You will need to drill holes in the furniture, but they are small and hidden in the back so you won’t have to worry about damaging or changing the look of your furniture.  The straps do a great job in holding it together and supporting the furniture wall strap.

Can the straps unhook in order to clean behind the furniture?
Yes! You can easily install and unhook the straps in order to clean the back of the furniture.  Our safety furniture wall straps are simple to add or remove, and require very little maintenance.  

Do I need a power drill or any tool to install?
Because the studs require screws, having a power drill or screwdriver is needed to install the safety furniture straps.

How many straps will I need to secure a dresser to the wall?
For most heavy-duty furniture pieces like a dresser or drawer, we suggest using 1-2 Safety Furniture Wall Straps per furniture piece in order to ensure the safety and security needed.

If the back panel of my furniture is weak, will the wall straps work as intended?
If your furniture has a weak back panel, we suggest you install the wall straps at the edge of the furniture to ensure there is a sturdy and reliable connection.

How short can you tighten the straps? I want to secure a bookcase that has an open back and is designed to lean against the wall.
The furniture wall strap is approximately 5.6 inches long.

Do I need drywall anchors, brackets, and a stud finder to use these?
In order to install the furniture wall straps, you will need to anchor them into the studs. Using a stud finder will help. You do not need to purchase the drywall anchors or brackets since they are included in the kit.
