The Dangers of a Dresser Tip-Over

Every 17 minutes in the U.S., someone is injured by a piece of falling furniture. The most common deadly type of falling furniture is a dresser tip-over. over the past 2 decades, over 200 children have been killed by a tipped-over dresser.

When a dresser’s drawers are open, the center of gravity shifts forward. The addition of only a little weight, such as that of a toddler, can cause a dangerous tip-over.

Believe it or not, there are currently no standards governing the design of dressers. The industry is essentially self-regulated, with manufacturers publishing recommended manufacturing guidelines.

The current guidelines apply to all dressers at least 27 inches tall, and state that a dresser should be able to resist a downward force of at least 50 lbs on any individual drawer. This is designed to simulate the weight of a child hanging from the drawer.

However, furniture makers are not legally obligated to manufacture dressers that meet these standards. A test by Consumer Reports found that 1 out of every 5 new dressers fails to meet the industry’s own standards for stability. As a result, millions of poorly designed and dangerous dressers sit in bedrooms across the U.S.
