TV Tip-Over Prevention from Best Buy

When you child-proof your home, please don’t stop at the socket plugs and hiding of the cords. Children are curious and they climb, and pretty much anything is fair game to be explored.

I learned this the hard way when my oldest daughter tried to climb her tall dresser to reach something at the top. The dresser came forward and would have crushed her, if she had not pulled out a lower drawer to stand on, which stopped it from fall over entirely. That was one very close call! Since then, I’ve secured anything and everything to walls, to protect from tipping. 

Now that TVs are lighter and thinner, they also come with a great chance to tip over and cause injuries. Securing your TV for safety is a really easy fix thanks to Best Buy. They have a variety of product options to secure all kinds of TV’s and even offer professional installation through the Best Buy Geek Squad.

Even though I’m a pretty handy gal around the home, I wouldn’t hesitate to get professional installation to give 100% confidence that the job is done right.

  1. No, I’m afraid that my TV isn’t secured and really it should be considering what it cost 🙂

  2. We live on the west coast…so a secure T.V. is very important for earthquakes as well.

  4. I would like to win so I know my TV is secured safely. Right now, our TV is on a stand.

  8. Wow! I would love to win. My temperamental tv is a very old, bulky box-style unit. It is taking up a ton of room. I moved and downsized and am feeling very cramped among dated furniture and kids toys. Currently it is housed inside of a huge hutch which is consuming valuable space in my main living area. I would be so grateful to have a new tv professionally installed and secured by Best Buy.

  9. One TV is the old style in a stand, so nothing is going to happen there, the other TV is on a storage chest, it is low, but not safely secured as of yet.

  10. We have just moved and our new TV is still in its box. I won’t put it out until we have a proper wall mount. Had a similar situation when my oldest daughter was around four years old. We had a wall unit with a fold down desk. She decided to sit on the desk and the entire unit came down. If not for the countertop, she would have been crushed. She’s now 27 & I still secure EVERYTHING!

  13. I would love to get my tv off the coffee table I have it sitting on and on the wall where it would be more safe.

  14. I would like to win because none of our tv’s are mounted. They are all just sitting on TV stands or other furniture. We’ve talked about mounting them but we keep procrastinating. I’m sure having one done would encourage us to get the rest mounted too.

  15. I would love to win this so I can have peace of mind knowing my TV wont fall on my kids. Thanks so much for the chance 🙂

Good luck to everyone who enters. My fingers and toes are crossed!
