KidCo Anti-Tip TV Strap

by KidCo

Flat screen televisions are light weight compared to the older box models.  But they still pose a serious threat of injury to children.  Your little explorer is not equipped to think of the dangers if they decide to climb on the piece of furniture where your television is placed.  They may be reaching for what they see on the screen or accidentally bump into it while playing and exploring.  That television can fall with the force of a thousand pounds causing serious head and internal injuries which can be fatal.  Dressers and large pieces of furniture, especially those with drawers on the bottom pose a serious risk as children can easily open the drawers to use as steps to reach items on top of the dresser or on higher shelves.  The open drawers and weight of a child stepping on them make the furniture unstable increasing the chance of it tipping over.   Toddlers and small children are no match for the weight and force of a large piece of furniture tipping over which can result in serious injuries that are sometimes fatal.  In the US alone, someone is injured every 15 minutes from a tipping piece of furniture.

How can I stop my kid from playing with the TV monitor and making it fall down?
Your TV should already be placed in a secure area of your home and should be pushed against the wall as close as possible. We advise parents to make sure that the TV is anchored already and that children can’t find and play with the cords for the monitor and cable boxes.  A common accident is when children pull a chord that causes the TV to fall on top of them. To ensure this doesn’t happen, follow the steps above and use the KidCo Anti Tip TV Strap to guarantee TV proofing for your child.  

What distance is safe to keep my child away from the TV?
Your child should be at least 5-8 feet away from the TV at all times to ensure safety and to minimize the risk of harmful accidents like the TV falling down.

The KidCo Anti Tip TV Strap will prevent the TV from falling forward in case of an accident.
