Flat Panel TV Wall Mount Giveaway – SANUS

Most American’s, like myself,  have a flat panel TV.  While we love it for our TV, we’ve  never thought about how dangerous this can be so close to where the kids play. The scary part is how many people have flat panel TV’s unsecured and are posing serious safety risks for children. Because of the slim designs, these TV’s can easily tip over when nudged which causes them to fall over. Consequently, children are injured and in some cases these accidents can cause death.

Let’s look at a few startling statistics:

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%

Have you reconsidered your TV placement yet? I certainly have. SANUS is doing their best to educate families on the importance of securing your flat panel TVs by leading the charge with their quality designed, SAFE, flat panel wall mounts. They have partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide to offer valuable education to consumers on the risks associated with unsecured flat panel TV’s.

    Those numbers are staggering considering I’ve never thought about my kids safety as it relates to our TV. Ours isn’t secured so that is definitely on this weekends “To Do” list!

    I can’t enter the giveaway but I tweeted it out.

  2. Great giveaway!! I need one in my daughter’s room!!

  3. I’ve actually heard about children getting injured and / or dieing from a over-turned TV. WOW – that’s so sad.

  4. That is a scary stat! I had a friend who’s neighbour kid was seriously hurt from a falling TV. I can’t imagine! I love the mounted one! Its great that this one comes with a video!

    Now mounting the flat screens on the wall makes sense!! I do not have a flat screen -thankfully-because as it is my cat has decided she likes to sit on top of it–can you imagine what would happen with a flat screen-never mind that she could use her paw to knock it over. She already uses said paw to push pictures on the wall to see what is behind it and a couple have come crashing down!!

  6. Melinda Dunne says:

    I learned that a child is killed every 3 weeks from a tv. That is very alarming! I have my tv in my bedroom on a mount so I can see it but I would love to have the one in our living room mounted.

  7. Corinne says:

    In our last house, both of our TV’s were mounted. Unfortunately, the floor plan of our current house doesn’t lend itself well to one of them being mounted on the wall so it sits atop a media table. I didn’t realize the safety issues related to its location, for us it was a matter of aesthetic preference and floor space.

  8. I like that SANUS has wall mounts, including tilting ones, for TVs that are 27″ and smaller! Sometimes smaller TVs need to be mounted just like the bigger ones.

    Yikes, one more thing for me to worry about with my kids!
