Sanus TV Mount Giveaway!

There's no secret that having little kids loose in the home calls for a lot of baby proofing. With quadruplets on our hands, we're constantly looking for ways to keep things safe. Right now, they spend most of their time in the play room since that room is completely baby-friendly. Once they're bigger and older, they'll eventually get more free roam in the house.

We've always been a fan of TV mounts and when the folks at Sanus contacted me about trying out a baby-safe Sanus TV mount, I was all too happy to give it a whirl. They're mailing ours now and we'll get our large flat screen mounted in the living room once it arrives. I read through some of the stats Sanus sent out about TV-related accidents with kids and thought I'd share them here.


For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment. However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids. Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.
Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide. By educating consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.
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%
