Anti tip kit?

Scottie Pippen must have purchased several of these.

[Basketball great Scottie Pippen is such a notoriously poor restaurant tipper that it is even noted on his Wiki article]

Maybe this should have been expected when you put the Anti-Tip installation instructions on the underside of the box?!

These things just fly off the shelf! We can't keep them stocked! Get them while supplies last! Here's a real good tip: Don't leave them unused!

"stocked"? Shouldn't that be "stacked"?

Glides Hands Tips a Blistering Defeat

06/30/2018 7:08 AM

Warehouse Bumper Cars Showdown Match

Floor-Care Furniture Glides holds on to its title of King of the Warehouse Bumper Cars by gliding onto the pallet of the Furniture Anti-Tip Kits. Despite the fact that all of the Anti-Tip devices remained upright inside their blister packs, the collision remains a blistering defeat for the challenger.

These were supposed to go to Australia!

It says right on the box, "For use ONLY in the southern hemisphere."

The anti-tip kit, which contained a live cockroach and a used Band-Aid was extremely effective in avoiding cash outlays in restaurants.

It was, however, recalled after it's packaging exhibited stability issues at point of sale.
