Examines reasons why IKEA MALM furniture is unstable and why consumers may be failing to utilize anchor supports. Reviews various aspects of the furniture, such as the imbalance in the weight from front to back, heavier front drawers, and the use of cheap, lightweight materials at the back of the unit, which contribute to the front-heavy weight imbalance. Describes the fact that IKEA itself cannot trace where the woods use in construction of its products are sourced from. Also includes charts referencing CPSC data for furniture tip-overs.
