"Tipping TVs and Furniture Hazards"
You probably didn't think twice about childproofing your drawers and
cabinets. You just did it. But what about your television and furniture?
If you follow the news, you may have heard that in the last few months,
four children have been killed by falling TVs in the Chicago area alone.
The national statistics are even more chilling. According to the
Consumer Product Safety Commission, tipping TVs and furniture take the
life of a child every two weeks. Another 15,000 are injured every year.
Sadly, many parents reported they didn't even realize there was a
hazard. The danger is all too real. But so are the solutions.
In case you're not aware of them, there are TV straps and furniture
brackets specifically designed to prevent such accidents. We've
researched them to bring you what we think are the best solutions.
They're simple, inexpensive, and fairly easy to install, and we'd like
to urge all parents to put safeguards like these into place.
Safety experts also recommend these preventative steps:
- If you can wall mount your flat screen, do so. If you're using a TV
stand, choose one that is stable, low to the ground, and substantially
larger than the TV's base. Place TVs as far back toward the wall as
- When filling a bookshelf or dresser, place the heaviest items on the
lower shelves or drawers. Bottom-heavy units are more stable.
- Don't place toys or other tempting items up high where kids might be
tempted to climb to reach them.
Accidents can happen in a flash, even under a parent's watchful eye.
Childproofing is an ongoing process. For more safety tips, articles, and
