Ideas please! I need to make a climbing 1 year old and tall bookcases less of a fatal combination. We used a single top bolt in our last place but that was with a non-climber and the 1 year old is a hefty build. It would be great to know if there was a better system around.

And has anyone fixed a flatscreen TV so it doesn't topple? It'll be on the bookshelf out of reach but I think he could shake the bookshelf (billy ikea).

And he's already pulled drawers out of the chest of drawers enough to make it start to topple onto him, anyone used a good system to prevent that?

Probably sounds horribly PFB but it's actually all so I can practise my benign neglect relaxed parenting approach and leave him playing with his sister while I mn do stuff around the house.

we always screw them to the wall and drill holes. those things you get with the bookcases alway look a little weak to me

What is your wall made of?
