Secure your TV with SANUS {tilting TV wall mount}

I’m sure everyone out there has read the horrifying stories about little kids climbing furniture and pulling it down on themselves, but I’ve got one more for you.  About ten years ago, my little niece climbed the drawers on a dresser in her older brother’s room to change the channel on his TV.  Since the TV perched on top already made it top-heavy, the addition of a 35+ pound child was too much and the entire dresser tipped forward onto her, along with the heavy TV.

Unlike all the stories you read online, her injuries weren’t too serious and she just had a gash above one eye.  She was rushed to the ER to treat the gash and to evaluate her bumps and
SILO-TVbruises, but ultimately, she got to come home with us that night.  We were incredibly lucky, and I’m happy to say that my niece is a beautiful, talented, and articulate teenager who I am absolutely positive will go on to do wonderful things.  Anyone who knows her well is nodding in agreement, because she really is that amazing.   

Other families aren’t so lucky and one tipped TV causes a lifetime of pain and “what ifs” for many.  Please don’t let that happen to you.  Secure your big {and little} pieces of furniture, make furniture un-climbable by removing shelves and drawers that might be tempting for young kids, and by all means, SECURE YOUR TVs, people! 

Notice how flat screens are increasing in size these days while getting thinner and thinner?  These two factors make it easier than ever to topple off furniture
and cause injury or even death.

Your flat screen may look harmless enough, but even a smaller screen could do some horrible damage if dropped on a little one.  This definitely falls under the category of times it’s better to be safe than sorry, and I’m urging everyone to go home and look at their TVs {no, really look at them… imagine a ball bouncing at them, a child trying to change the channel, or a simple bump of the entertainment center} to see if there’s any way possible your TV could fall.  If the answer is yes, please do everything you can to keep your family safe and secure it today.

So, how can you secure your TV?  You can get a SANUS mount and secure your TV right to the wall – either above the entertainment center or above the fireplace in a TV nook.  And, even better than just offering a safe and secure solution to the tip-able and dangerous stand-alone TV, the SANUS mounts actually make your TV viewing even more enjoyable.  By allowing you to take that TV that used to just sit there and tilt it and/or turn it just how you’d like to avoid glare, aim it at the couch, or make it easier to watch throughout the room whenever you would like.

And, now SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide to educate consumers of the risk of unsecured flat panel TVs.  The statistics are really frightening.  A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed that TV tip overs are responsible for a child's death every 3 week, an ER visit every 45 minutes, and over the last 10 years injuries have increasde by 31%
.

If that's not enough to scare you, check out this video by Safe Kids Worldwide and find out more at SafeKids.org and TVsafety.org.  Frightening, right?  You might want to check out these tips from SafeKids.org on more ways to keep kids safe from furniture and TV tip-overs.

  1. I learned that it’s still hugely dangerous to have unmounted TVs. I honestly thought this would have been less of an issue with these newer and lighter TVs.
