Don’t Fall Victim to a Falling TV

Having a huge flat screen TV is the pinnacle of home theater entertainment. The perfect place to catch a game, watch the kids play video games or round up the whole family for a movie night. But if your TV is sitting on a piece of furniture, it also comes with a hidden danger—the possibility that it can be bumped or tipped off its stand.

You might be surprised to know that in a three year span, close to 19,000 reported injuries resulted from falling televisions and 47% of TV tip-over related injuries happened to children under the age of five.

Luckily, there’s a mount for that.  

The safest way to ensure a flat panel TV won’t fall over, especially in high traffic areas, is to mount it to the wall where it’s safe from prying hands or rogue toys. A product like the EZMount OMH takes less than 10 minutes to install and has a locking system that prevents your TV from being bumped off of the mount. The fact that it’s UL certified offers added peace of mind.

Keep your most precious possessions safe with a simple, DIY project. See for yourself how easy the OMH is to install by watching our installation video or visit the OMH product page for more details.
