Win a SANUS Flat Panel TV Mount

Disclosure: I will receive a tv mount in exchange for this post.
Is your family in danger? For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment. However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids. Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.

Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide. By educating 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%

  4. Get down to baby level and move around the house after you think you have everything secure. Things look different at baby level and you can often find more items that need secured or removed. Even the underside of furniture can be more dangerous than you think, they can have sharp edges on the underside!

    Thanks!

  9. My best child safety tip: Child-proof everything and always over-estimate your child's ability to reach or touch things that might not be safe: scissors, glass items, breakable things.

  11. I always made sure to turn handles in while cooking so a child can't grab something hot and/or spill it on themselves.
    Also for emotional/spiritual safety,.I use parental controls on tv and computer!

  12. Secure all the furniture! I try to house-proof my children for times when we visit homes that aren't child-proof.

  13. secure tv's so they don't fall on kids

  14. Get on your hands and knees and childproof everything from that point of view. Babygates are a must in our house due to steep steps.

  16. get down on all fours and crawl around to see what they see at that level. Cover or move anything that is dangerous

  17. Don't forget to secure your garbage containers, little one's are notorious for depositing found things in them. My experience, car keys.

  18. Start explaining "WHY" something is not safe early and often, even if you think they are too young.
