New article on furniture and TV tip-over hazards

June 16th, 2010

Parents take all kinds of precautions to protect their young children, but few consider the hazards inherent to TVs and furniture. These items can easily tip over and crush a small child if preventative measures are not taken. A dresser, for instance, can be bolted to the wall behind it, and TVs should be pushed to the back of their stands. Unfortunately, not enough parents are doing these things, because 15,000 children per year visit the hospital when TVs and furniture fall onto them. To find out more about how to prevent these accidents, take a look at our new article on furniture and TV tip-over hazards.
