Earthquake Protection for Storage

150416 (4) Quake Protection

I’ve added some earthquake protection of my storage shelves. The idea is to prevent the contents from jiggling themselves off the edge during a quake, land subsidence or a Pittsburgh Steelers game. The design of each shelf is customized for the particular shelf. The example shown here consists of nylon cord held tight with a section of bungee cord, which allows easy access. Top shelves have a wooden lip glued or tacked into place. Some shelves are built with a tilt so everything naturally slides to the back.
