Buyers suggest that you anchor your portable pantry cabinet to the wall. This will prevent the pantry cabinet from being able to tip over and cause potential damage or injury.
Some buyers that placed their pantry cabinets in areas where they were unable to anchor them to the wall said that you can put heavier items in the bottom of the pantry cabinet to also help prevent the risk of the pantry tipping over.
One buyer also suggested that if you’re putting your storage cabinet together by yourself that it makes it easier to install the doors if you first lay down your storage cabinet with its back on the ground.
