Ikea Attaching to the Wall

MALM Chests

  • In the United States 3 small children have been killed by Ikea Malm chests falling on top of them (Ted McGee of Minnesota - 6 Drawer Malm Chest, Curren Collas 6 Drawer Malm Chest, 3rd Unnamed Child from Washington, 3 Drawer Malm Chest)

  • Ikea have paid around £40m (US$60m) in compensation to their families.

  • Daily Mail Article

Ikea provide a bracket to attach each Malm chest to the wall and there is a diagram in the instructions highlighting the risk. Ikea also sell a number of items which will fall over when you open the doors unless they are attached to the wall, these include ALL Billy Bookcases with Doors and some of the PAX systems.

The bottom line is that it is obvious that some items should be attached to the wall and less obvious with others, however many people do not want to attach furniture to the wall or may be prevented by the terms of their lease.

At Flat Pack Amigos we will advise all customers of this and attach all items to the wall if required for £6 per item (excluding wardrobes and TV systems) with the anti-topple device or bracket included by Ikea.

Flat Pack Amigos will charge a fee (Currently £12) per wardrobe for attaching any wardrobe or wardrobe system (ie Pax) to the wall. This is because greater work is required to ensure a solid fixing. For TV systems (inc Besta/Hemnes) this will be quoted for where appropriate.

I cannot praise this company enough, I was given a booking for the 18th October, I asked them to let me know if they had any cancellations for anything earlier, they contacted me and moved the appointment forward to the 6th, they kept me informed all the way, turned up on time, the assembler Chris was very pleasant and friendly, he put five items together perfectly and showed me how to operate the ottoman storage bed, also that all the other pieces of furniture were in good order. I was charged the price quoted with no issues at all, I would definitely use this company in the future and I will be recommending to my friends and family. great job well done ! Thank you Flatpack Amigos.

The service was absolutely superb from booking to completion. The assembler arrived on time and just got on with the job. All my bedroom furniture was assembled in the morning, which saved us so much time. The assembler was friendly and tidy. It really was an excellent service and I will definitely recommend flat pack amigos to my friends and family. This job would have taken us hours, so it was well worth the competitive price we paid. Thank you
