NY Governor Signs “Harper’s Law” Requiring Retailers to Sell Tip Restraint Devices for New Furniture

“Harper’s Law” has been officially signed into law in New York State. The law requires furniture retailers to sell tip-restraint devices for certain furniture. The law is named after three-year-old Harper Fried of Monroe, who died in November 2016 when a dresser in her room tipped over. Her father, Aaron Fried, quickly decided Harper’s death could help others live…

At a press conference yesterday in Orange County, State Senator James Skoufis said the law came a little too late to help another local family…

State Senator David Carlucci says the Fried family worked hard to get the bill passed to help keep other children safe…

The American Home Furnishings Alliance has said they prefer a mandatory federal standard. For more information about what the Frieds are doing to help other kids, visit their website, HarperSmiles.com.
