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 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.

The Benefits of Safety Furniture Wall Straps

According to Consumer Reports, every 20 minutes someone is injured due to a piece of furniture falling over.

Young children, especially toddlers, like to run around the home and treat furniture as fun pieces to play with.  They enjoy climbing, bumping, and throwing furniture around without understanding the potential harm they are creating.  Installing furniture wall straps secure your furniture to the wall and will prevent these accidents from occuring.  With furniture wall straps, your child won’t be able to climb or bump into furniture and cause accidental tipping or falling to occur.

We advise all homeowners to anchor their furniture to prevent tip-overs.  It’s a simple and affordable way to protect your family and make your home environment a little safer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are they 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 strap attach 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 for a dresser?
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.
