Sanus Flat Panel Tilting Mount Giveaway: Child Safety

We are giving away a Sanus Flat Panel Tilting Mount (approximately $250 Value) to ONE LUCKY CONTESTANT!  See below for details.

In 2009 Federal law required that all television stations in the US only broadcast in digital format.  That meant that thousands of homes purchased high definition televisions and those old heavy, clunky televisions became obsolete.  With that scenario and the decreasing costs in flat panel technology, hundreds of thousands of households across the country put their family's at risk.  How?  By improperly securing their new televisions to a cabinet or wall.  Check out these ALARMING statistics with flat panel television sets in US homes (based on a 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission report):
  • 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%.  That's why Parent Grapevine is extremely happy to host this great giveaway.  

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.  Sanus is 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.
