    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This consumer safety specification covered the performance requirements and test methods to ensure the safety of toy chests.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F15 on Consumer Products, this specification was withdrawn in August 2016 and replaced by Specification F963, Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.1

    1. Scope

    1.1 This consumer safety specification covers the performance requirements and test methods to ensure the safety of toy chests.

    1.2 This consumer safety specification is intended to minimize the accidents and injuries to children resulting from normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse or abuse of toy chests.

    1.3 For the purposes of this consumer safety specification, these requirements apply to products known as toy chests or toy boxes that are designed and marketed as storage containers for toys. The products subject to the requirements are those with a volume of 1.1 ft3 (0.031 m3) or more.

    1.4 No toy chest or toy box produced after the approval date of this consumer safety specification shall, either by label or other means, indicate compliance with this specification unless it conforms to all requirements contained herein.

    1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 5, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
