<p>Basically, I want to secure our bookshelf & entertainment center to the wall so they don't tip over. I have seen mixed reviews online. Some people say that the strap becomes brittle & breaks after 1-2 years. Has anyone found a good brand? Thanks mommas.</p>

<p>We use <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSafety-First-11014-Furniture-Straps%2Fdp%2FB000056W7R" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">these</a> for our bookshelves. Have had them for about 3 years and they are not brittle. </p>

<p>We use heavy duty brackets screwed into the studs in the wall.  Yeah, not pretty, but it gets the job done.  I have a climber, a cat, and a cheap ikea bookcase.  You do the math, lol! </p>

<p>Thanks WindyCity Mom. I think I'll use the brackets for our tall bookshelf, but our entertainment center is about 4 inches away from the wall. We'll probably have to use the straps for that.</p>
