TV & Furniture Tip overs

Many TV tip-overs are the result of televisions that aren’t properly secured or placed in safe locations. Flat panel TVs can be easily pulled off an entertainment center or table by a child. Heavier, box-style cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs placed on dressers or high furniture can tip over and cause serious injuries, even death, if children climb onto the furniture. There has been a 31 percent increase in TV tip-over-related injuries in the U.S. over the last ten years.
