TOPIC: Anti-tips not installed on slide in ranges

Anti-tips not installed on slide in ranges 13 years 9 months ago #5610


By the way,  My name is Tillman Brown. I'm a new guy from Lake Norman,, North Carolina. I've read many of the posts here and they are quite informative. Glad to be here!  :)

Back to the question. I've taken much heat by calling these out.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I call them out. In my mind I consider it a safety hazard especially with children present.

I agree. Manufacturer states they should be installed anyways so at the very least you would say not installed to manufacturer specs.

Welcome Tillman!  It depends on the year of manufacture and installment.  And, frankly, I don't know when the stops became necessary, viable, utilized, recommended, important, looked for or even cute.  But, they are always a good idea...

Look at it this way. Pots of boiling water and fry pans of hot oil on stove top, kid opens oven door and stands on it and stove tips over. You can imagine the rest. I always call it out because I do not want to get that call of look what happened to my kid, because you didn't tell me this was necessary or even available. And if your getting the heat from agents....put a pot of water on and have them stand on the door. ;-)
