Product Safety

Between 1912 and 1987, Lane and Virginia Maid manufactured and sold an estimated 12 million cedar chests. Cedar chests made during these years latch shut without having to depress a button. In recent years, several children have suffocated inside chests with old style locks. As a result, Lane has launched several successful programs concentrating on lock replacemnt. However, there are still an estimated 6 million chests that need the locks replaced. Chests manufactured after 1987 already have the new safety lock.
