What Every Parent Needs to Know About TV Tip-Overs + SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount Giveaway

Being a mom of seven means safety is a big importance in our home. We observe everything from cabinet locks to wall mounts, but what about the TV. While so far we have been lucky enough to not have a tragic experience, I will say that at least once one of my children have manages to have their TV land on the floor. Even thinking about what would have happened if my three year old would have been in the way is heart stopping. For this reason and more we are happy to partner with SANUS on a children’s TV safety campaign.

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.
