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.
