27 Baby-Proofing Items Every House Needs ASAP
If you live in an area prone to earthquakes, chances are good your furniture is (hopefully) already bolted securely to the walls. If your bookcases and dressers are standing freely, now is the time to apply some sort of wall anchor or earthquake strap to prevent accidental tip-overs. There are lots of different safety options, from L-shaped brackets that bolt to both the piece of furniture and a stud in the wall, to earthquake straps that allow a bit of give but also prevent anything from falling. Kids love to climb, and you can be assured that your little ones will try to climb their dresser eventually, so make sure you take the necessary precautions to keep them safe!
