As much as we encourage IKEA hacking, always be cautious in using a learning tower. DIY ones are untested for safety and we will not be held liable for any injuries incurred while using this or any other learning tower hacks featured on this site.
These are a few learning tower safety precautions to take note:
Your child must never use the tower unattended (as they may fall or reach for dangerous utensils, hot pots and pans on the counter.)
Remember, one child on the tower, at one time.
Always push the facing side of the learning tower up against a counter or wall for safety.
The tower must always rest firmly on a level floor.
Stow the tower away when not in use to avoid your child mounting it unsupervised.
