As a parent the above image scares the life out of me. We are lucky enough to have a nice big Plasma screen TV which is 32″ sitting on a TV cabinet identical to the one above – only bigger. When Emmy started crawling she soon became fasinated with the DVD’s, wires and very quickly the TV.
When we were presented with this (See pic on the left) I began researching ways of making our rather heavy TV safe and secure from our little climber; as each year with TV’s getting bigger and bigger more children and pets have been injured or killed by toppling TV’s. Now obviously I do not care about the TV but I do about my daughters safety.
Now I must admit that it took me ages to find what I was looking for as I didn’t actually know myself however I never give up and did find the perfect solution, this was the Stabilis Home Safefty Kit.
The Stabilis Home Safety Kit for LCD and Plasma Screens is a universal solution that secures your flat panel TV in the home, to make it safer. It has been manufactured and tested to prevent children accidentally pulling large TV’s forward onto themselves.
The Stabilis consists of a rigid, height adjustable bar which fits onto the rear of your 32” – 60” flat screen TV (using the TV`s own wall-mounting holes); the other end is then secured to your furniture or wall. The “stand” end of the Stabilis has adaptors which include a narrower glass shelf clamp, a thick wooden shelf clamp, a bracket to optionally allow you to screw it to wooden furniture, and a bracket to secure to a wall. Although the bar is rigid, it is still possible to swivel the TV on its base.
‘One size fits all’ – the Stabilis Home Safety Kit is compatible with new flat panel screens as well as older style screens
Paul fitted this to our TV extremely easily and now we do not have to worry when Emmy decides that the best places to watch Peppa Pig is standing with her hands firmly pressed up against the screen!
