Tip-over Hazards - assure all freestanding ranges are secured. - Seattle Inspection team

If you have a freestanding range, be sure it can't tip over. 

Old ranges weighed so much they were hard to knock over,  but even a very young toddler can knock over a modern one.  Half of all fatal accidents involved kids less then 2!

Anti-tip kits can save lives,

They're only missing in about half of the houses you inspect?  Wow, that's pretty good.  It's closer to about 90% for me.

Great point JJ and Suzanne.  This is a serious problem.  I don't think most homeowners have any idea this is part of the installation.
