 According to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), about 43,000 people are injured in a television tip-over incident each year, 59 percent, of whom are children, that’s crazy. Did you know about these? I wasn’t aware of these numbers and to be honest when we got our TV, we were more worried about the kids knocking the TV over while playing their Wii, than I was in the TV tipping over and crushing them. That’s because I wasn’t aware of the danger. So like many Americas, my TV isn’t mounted, I thought it was more about the aesthetics. Now that i’m aware of these information, i’m making it a conscious effort to educate you guys and everyone else on the importance of securing our flat panel TV.
