02 Feb: These Tips Will Help Keep Your TV From Tipping

As what some consider to be the biggest TV event of the year approaches, we want to make sure your Big Game-watching environment is safe. Saturday is National TV Safety Day, where we help build awareness of the dangers of TV tipping.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 17,000 kids visit the ER each year for injuries suffered from TV tip-over accidents1.

We don’t want this to happen at your house, so take a quick look around and see if your space passes the test.

This weekend in particular, millions will be gathering in living rooms across the country to watch the Big Game.

It’s no coincidence that the day before the game is National TV Safety Day. It’s a great time to raise awareness about TV tip-over accidents and educate homeowners about securing their TVs.
