What’s the issue? 

According to Product Safety Australia, the plastic brackets holding the bunk beds together may crack or break. This may be caused by the over-tightening of the screws on the brackets or by misuse, for example, repeated jumping on or climbing over the sides of the bed.

If the brackets crack or break, the bunk bed may collapse and could result in a fall, serious injury or even death.”

What should consumers do?

If you have one of the bunk beds above, you should immediately find alternative sleeping arrangements for the kids.

You will also need to contact Fitting Furniture. The team will then send you a set of upgraded replacement metal brackets, including a new set of fixing screws and covers. Each set will come with instructions for the replacement of the current brackets with the upgraded metal brackets and is free of charge.
