Note: SANUS is providing me with a TV mount, and is providing one for the giveaway. I am not being compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are my own.
Most of us now have flat panel TVs in our homes – I know we were glad to make the switch from having a huge heavy TV to one much lighter and more slim. Of course, those of us that are parents think about the safety issues that can arise from having a flat panel TV. With the old big box TVs, they were often so heavy that we knew they weren’t going anywhere. Flat panel TVs can be much easier to tip over, creating a safety hazard in our homes.
Fortunately, with SANUS TV mounts there’s any easy solution – just mount the screen on the wall, securing it AND getting it out of the reach of tiny fingerprints!
SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide to help educate consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.
A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
- A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
- Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
- Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
- An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
- Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%
