1. Scope
1.1 This safety specification is intended to define the test method and other requirements for tipover restraints as re- quired in Specification F2057. 1.2 This specification assesses the strength of the tipover restraint only, and does not address the in situ performance of the tipover restraint. 1.3 The values stated in inch{pounds units are to be re- garded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.4 The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the test procedure portion, Section 4, of this safety specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, ifany, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the appli- cability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions ofTerms Specific to This Standard: 3.1.1 clothing storage unit, n—furniture item intended for the storage of clothing typical of bedroom furniture. 3.1.2 installation instructions, n—detailed diagram and written description of the proper installation of tipover re- straint. 3.1.3 manufacturer, n—organization or company that makes or consolidates the tipover restraint component parts and installation instructions. 3.1.4 tipover restraint, n—supplemental device that aids in the prevention of tipover.
4. Test Method
4.1 Assemble tipover restraint components including pro- vided fasteners in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. 4.2 Rigidly suspend the assembly by securing one end ofthe tipover restraint by gripping directly, or attaching to a fixed structure (for example, wooden block). See Fig. 1 for test method examples for commonly used tipover restraints. 4.3 Attach a loading device to the fastener(s) on the oppo- site end of restraint. 4.4 Gradually, over a period of not less than 2 s nor greater than 15 s, apply the static load of 50 lb (23 kg) 3 and maintain for an additional 30 s. 4.5 If the fastener(s) become unattached from the test structure (wood block or fixed structure) in such a way that it prohibits the completion of the test, then the fastener(s) are to be reattached using whatever means possible without affecting the test results of the assembly.
5. Instructional Literature
5.1 Installation instructions shall include at a minimum the following:5.1.1 Illustration showing installation method. 5.1.2 Detailed written instructions with step by step instruc- tions on how to properly attach the tipover restraint. 5.1.3 Parts list including illustrations. 5.2 Clear and complete installation instructions for the tipover restraint shall be included.
6. Labeling Requirements
6.1 The following information shall be provided with each tipover restraint: 6.1.1 Manufacturer’s name and address. 6.1.2 Date of manufacture (capable of identifying at a minimum the month and year of manufacture).
7. Keywords
7.1 clothing storage unit; fasteners; force; manufacturer; parts; tipover restraint
