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.
