Earthquake-Resistant Cabinet Latches

"Positive locking" latches like these are a simple and reliable way to keep cabinet contents safely inside the cabinet, even during strong shaking, since the latched door can only be opened intentionally. The latches install inside the cabinet, and, unlike complicated child locks, open with a simple push or pull (depending on the selected model). Both latches will work with any standard 8/32" thread-style knob; pull latch works with cabinet doors up 3/4" thick. The push latch keeps cabinet door open 1/8". Colors available for push latch.

Available colors: black, white, brown Price:$3.95  (2-point)
$4.95 (Pull w/ Knob)
$12.50 (Push)

GripStrip Hidden Shelf Contents Restraint

GripStrips provide a simple but very effective way of keeping shelf contents stationary during quaking. When placed beneath items, the high-friction, non-adhesive cut-to-size PVC foam mats' double grip, on both the shelf and its contents, prevents movement more effectively than bungee cord restraints. And unlike most other securing methods, GripStrip keeps the items as accessible as they were before being restrained. The PVC foam is static-free and resistant to bacteria and fungus. Ideal for bookshelves.

Available colors: black, putty, gray Price:$5.90  (4.5"x2' roll)

Heavy-Duty Snapstrap Bars

SnapStrap Bars are designed to prevent heavier items such as books and boxes from sliding off of shelves, while still allowing easy access to contents. High-quality Bungee cord is stretched taut by the plastic connectors at either end to restrain shelf contents, and the cord's holding power is enforced by aluminum tubing. The bar-like cord swings up easily for convenient access. This form of shelf retention is ideal for overhead bookshelves, law libraries or pharmacy storage shelves.

Available colors: black, putty, gray Price:$20.95 (36" cord)
$24.95 (48" cord)

Storage Rack Straps

These straps are designed to secure the contents of pallet-style storage racks while allowing for easy access.

The 1"-wide straps come in four lengths (36", 48", 60", 72") to accomodate shelves of all sizes. A quick-release buckle allows for fast, unobstructed access to shelf contents when desired.

These straps are designed for flexibility in securing furniture positioned near a wall. The swivel cam buckle automatically locks the high-strength Nylon strap into place after it has been adjusted to length (between 1" and 14" away from wall).

This product's long reach and variety of installation options makes it ideal for oddly shaped or hard-to-reach furniture.

SeismaFlex Brackets

These stainless steel brackets are the most effective form of fastening available for extra large and heavy furniture. While rigid "L" brackets can come unscrewed when connected to very heavy items and placed under seismic stress, and straps can likewise be overstrained, Seisamflex Brackets resist and absorb seismic motion to minimize stress on the connection. These brackets connect to a wall stud and either screw in or adhere to the item, depending on the model selected.
