Securing Your TV for Safety in the Home

Keep your little ones safe from these dangers

You absolutely want your TV to take pride of place in your living room, it’s the centre of your entertainment life, but are you sure that it’s secure as it could be?

Alarming statistics show that tens of thousands of people have been injured by televisions over the last decade – often from devices falling. And a study in the US on emergency room statistics from 2000 to 2010 reveals the fact that almost 200 children were killed by falling TV’s.

Many parents would never consider their television as a source of danger but older CRT screens are notoriously heavy. And even newer flatscreens are far from safe – while they may be much lighter than their predecessors their sheer size and top heavy nature can make them surprisingly prone to toppling.

Taking a little more care in the placement of your TV should be a first step in limiting the danger – and be wary of where you store your old sets – but wall-mounting is a solution that has many worthwhile benefits.

Apart from helping to give you more space in your living room and providing a great angle for the whole family to enjoy your movie or TV entertainment, the set can be secured high above the heads of little ones and even tucked away when not in use.
