Magic Chef 31FA-92LX Anti Tip Bracket?

In the process of selling our place and the town we reside in requires a resale inspection, the town requires that an Anti Tip bracket be installed on our stove/range. The issue is this is a 25 year old appliance at the least and didn't have an anti-tip device installed when we purchased the place. Local big box store couldnt help, and Magic Chef exists no longer. Any suggestions? Is there a universal bracket ? or could I just make one myself. All and all suggestions appreciated.

Hello tomc76 and Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Suggestions wanted? Okay. Here's one.


Go to your local appliance parts retail store and purchase the floor mounted brackets. They screw into the floor behind the appliance. The rear foot pads of the appliance slip and lock into the floor installed securing brackets. (2).

One has to think like a contractor. One whom would be hired and required to bring up to current day standards all the new requirements for existing appliances, etc.

What would they do. Very likely install universal appliance foot pad securing brackets. These items are also used for washing machines and dryers, etc. Required in many earthquake prone areas of our country and where I live...
