Ikea is giving away anchoring kits to fix its drawers and dressers after two children died when drawers fell on them.

The fix is for children’s dressers just shy of two feet tall, and adult ones that are at least 29 and-a-half inches high.

It’s not a recall – the products came with the anchoring kits included.

But after the deaths, Ikea wanted to give out the free kits.

They include replacement tip-over restraints, wall-anchoring hardware, instructions and warning labels.

Ikea says some 27 million customers who purchased drawers and dressers qualify for the repair kits.
