Sanus TV Wall Mount & Safe Kids Worldwide
“Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Sanus and Safe Kids Worldwide. All thoughts expressed are my own.”
I have five televisions in my home. We have made the switch to all flat panel TVs. We have four mounted on the wall, mainly because it looks so much cleaner and is a space saver in each room. We do have one flat panel in our oldest sons room that sits on his entertainment stand. My concern was never the safety of it, I really hadn’t given it much thought. After all the TVs are not the old school box televisions we used to own. I do have two smaller children and my two year old is fully capable of climbing onto our furniture. With the size and new ultra thin designs of flat panel TVs, it is a dangerous move to leave them free standing as they can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.
SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide. Educating consumers of the risk an unsecured flat panel TV can pose in your home. SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families 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%
