SANUS TV Mounting – Flash Giveaway

image002 (2) I think flat screen TV’s are awesome…so sleek and so flat.  However, as awesome as I think they are, I did not realize how dangerous they can be.  Yes, dangerous!

These sleek, and so flat TV’s are a danger to children.  As they can easily be tipped over when bumped or pulled, toppling off furniture and causing injury or, heaven forbid, even death.

SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide to help educate consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s.

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%
