Today’s post is a pretty amazing one, if I do say so myself. I’ve been posting a lot about our movie room lately (here, here, and here), so when Sanus reached out to me about their flat screen tv wall mounts (and giving one to one of you!!) I was super excited and jumped all over it. Not just because attaching your tv to the wall looks super cool, but also because there’s all sorts of safety reasons to do so.
Let me throw some info and stats at you for a quick second:
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%
You guys, I had no idea about those things. So yes, Sanus & I want to offer you a super awesome flat screen tv wall mount… but more than that, we want your kiddos to be safe! Whether you’re a DIY guru or not, there’s a super easy installation process for these mounts and it even includes a template so you can make sure everything is even. And if you’re still stuck, there’s a live human being you can call 6 days out of the week.
