There was a tragic situation in the news recently where a three-year-old girl died after she was crushed by a TV cabinet. This is not the first time someone has been injured by such heavy furniture, which is why it is advisable to consider safety when looking to place your flat panel TV.
While it might be true that the latest plasma and LED screen models are lighter and thinner than TVs in the past, if you have a larger screen size like 40 or 50 inches then it can still weigh a considerable amount.
It is also true to say that the small flat TV stand provided with most of these televisions are incredibly unstable and when the TV is perched on this device you cannot be sure it will provide the security you require, especially when you have children in the house.
The instructions provided with most TVs do not really explain how to screw the unit to a flat surface and so a plasma or LCD TV when not properly positioned can prove to be an accident waiting to happen.
This is why TV wall brackets are not only marketed as an accessory that gives you the best choice in terms of viewing angles and the ability to add to the experience, but are also a safer option too.
Yes, TV mounts help you to save on floor space, but they also take the big TV and place it out of reach of small children. With these secure devices, you can be sure that as long as you follow the mounting instructions provided with the bracket, it will offer the level of safety you require.
