used it to mean a lavatory, and for some time it signified not a piece of furniture but a room or apartment; in medieval England, for instance, the king’s wardrobe was the centre of a good deal of administrative machinery.

The nineteenth-century sea chest was often handmade of unpainted wood.
Brass-fitted camphorwood chests were brought back from the Orient.
So when you flip the unit (laterally, as depicted in the instructions), then when it rests on the leg even for just a moment, the cam-locks will get pushed right out of the wood, ripping its way out and damaging the panel in the process.
It's not something you can fix easily either; the side panel is what gets damaged when the cam-locks get ripped out, and you have to disassemble pretty much the entire unit to replace the part.
