You probably know to change the batteries in your home’s smoke alarms when you change your clocks. But what about your TV? This year, Safe Kids and the Consumer Electronics Association wants you to remember to secure your televisions before Super Bowl Sunday.
Every day, more than 30 children are injured or killed by television tip-overs! Over 100 million people will watch the Super Bowl this weekend. What a great reminder to make our TVs safer. But how?
- Place heavy cathode ray tube sets on low, stable pieces of furniture.
- Recycle unused television sets.
- Wall-mount flat screen TVs.
- Consider a product like KidCo’s Anti-Tip TV Strap to secure your set.
Whatever team you’re rooting for on Sunday, on Saturday think Safety!
