Free fixing kit for furniture bought from IKEA. I think these are available due to recent injuries caused by children climbing and the Malm units becoming unstable.

They aren't badly designed they are badly built/installed by people. IKEA supply all these fittings anyway. The stuff is falling over because people are ignoring the safety advice and common sense regarding fitting them.

remember that you should have had the kits when you bought the drawers, they have actually recalled some items in the US but you can stop them tipping by using the anti-topple fixing.

Also only free for chest of drawers not other IKEA products

Not a deal, they have to offer it anyway after law suit in the US

And your comment is why there has been deaths, any large item like these should be secured, the company includes a device to stop it happening, there was once a time when companies didn’t and accidents still happened. Sadly though the real issue is with the person who puts it up, it’s “okay” just to leave something missing is not the attitude to have and some of the children’s parents have came out publicly and said just that. It’s sad that we have seen deaths because of it but sometimes you have to take responsibility for your own actions.

In the US there have been serious injuries because of washing tablets, because people don’t put them out if the way of kids, redesigns of boxes to make them more difficult to get out, we now have instructions on our boxes because of it. Even fingers cut off kids with push chairs because people have left their kids put fingers in the mechanism when they put them down, massive recall over that same push chairs over hear didn’t need changing as there had not been one report if injuries. Plenty of stories like that in this country and in otherswith other products.

Will they Americans sue if IKEA don't provide every permutation of wall plugs there are for fixing to various walls?

Says for chest if drawers only....

If any component is missing from Ikea products the company will supply it free. Really hope someone lists each individual item on here.

Because the wardrobe come with different fixings, try searching for ikea spares and you probably will get what you need or find what you did with the stuff that came with it :
