As a mom of middle schoolers, I haven’t given much thought about mounting our television to the wall until recently. At age 10 and 13, my kids are past the age of climbing the entertainment center. Since we don’t live in California and have the threat of earthquakes that could topple furniture, televisions, and items from bookcases, I never thought there was a need to mount our flat screen TV until I read the startling statistics about TV tip-over injuries and realized how easy it is to find and install the right SANUS wall mount. Here are just some reasons why families should mount flat screen TVs.
5 Reasons Families Should Mount Flat Screen TVs
1. Unmounted TVs Can Badly Hurt Kids
According to a report released by the Consumer Product Safety Commision in 2016, a TV can fall with the force of thousands of pounds, a force 10 times more powerful than being hit by a NFL lineman. Every year 11,000+ ER visits are caused by TV tip-overs. On average, one child dies every two weeks when a TV or furniture falls on them and 2/3 of TV and furniture tip-over fatalities involve toddlers.
Even if you’re like us and don’t have little kids in your house, it’s still important to protect younger visiting cousins, siblings of your older kids’ friends, and little neighbors who might be in your house from time to time. It’s a much better idea to mount your flat screen TV to be safe to prevent any accidental injuries.
2. Finding the Perfect TV Mount is Easy

4. Enjoy a Better Viewing Experience
In addition to a mounted TV being safer, it also provides a better viewing experience. Full motion and tilting mounts optimize viewing angles by letting you extend, tilt, and swivel to reduce glare and reflections for the best view anywhere in the room. The viewing angle plays a vital role in getting the most out of your TV viewing experience not only by reducing glare but also because images are best viewed when front and center. When TVs sit a few feet for the left or right, there can be a loss of picture brightness and slight shifts in color.

5. Update Your Space by Making it Seem Larger
Mounting your television to the wall not only is a wise move to keep little ones safe but it updates your space, helps declutter, and ultimately makes your space larger by eliminating the need for an entertainment stand. Eliminating bulky and unnecessary furniture gives rooms a new stylish look and feel. While you’re at it, take your decluttering a step farther by using cable tunnels to hide cords too! SANUS cable tunnels feature cable clips that can hold up to eight cables and can be customized so you can cut and paint them to match your décor.
