Safety is probably one of the last things people think about when buying a TV wall mount. Most of want one for ‘looks’. But I’m talking about kids getting hurt and even getting killed buy an unsecured TV-one that tips over on them. I have actually read a story on a blog about this happening to her son and him dying. I cannot even imagine the heartache of something like that. To know that it’s something that could easily have been prevented….
I’m giving away a Sanus Vuepoint, Full-Motion TV mount and educating you on why it’s important to buy a good one. Did you know:
- 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
That is crazy y’all! We have a heavy 54″ Flat panel plasma TV and if that thing fell on Truett, there’s no way he’d be able to move it. He’d be stuck and hurt badly. Sanus has partnered with SafeKids.org and offers a safe solution. The Sanus Vuepoint Tv Mount is a 1,2,3 installation process and will ease your mind knowing it’s secured on the wall. It’s a full-motion mount that will also allow you to swivel the TV in various directions.
