    What a load. They don’t want to design their furniture properly, so you have to hire a contractor (most people can’t find a wall stud and wallboard won’t hold), and destroy your walls to accommodate their junk. No way. They just need to expand the dressers’ footprint until its stable. You know filling cabinets remain stable under vastly more weight without extra measures.

    I inserted a piece of wood as a shim under the front of my dresser, to make it much more stable, but it should not have been sold, unsuitable for its marketed purpose as is. I hope the lawsuits pay off big, so everybody is warned off such foolish mistakes in the future.
