OmniMount®, a global leader in A/V mounting solutions for TVs, computers and Apple® iPad® devices, is encouraging sports fans to check the safety of their TVs in preparation for parties and game watching events this Sunday.
“The Super Bowl is often enjoyed in a group setting around a large screen TV and if the right precautions haven’t been considered there’s potential for accidents,” said David Wardleworth, vice president of OmniMount. “Since the big game has everyone talking and thinking about TVs, it’s the perfect reminder to do a safety check at home. Mounting your TV on the wall with a UL tested mount is the best way to prevent injury if a guest or child accidentally bumps into your TV or pulls on the furniture below it.”
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, every 45 minutes in the United States a child is rushed to the emergency room for injuries caused by televisions that are not properly secured. The second annual National TV Safety Day is on January 31 and aims to raise awareness about TV tip-overs and educate parents about making their homes safer.
OmniMount prides itself on making the selection and installation of TV mounts easy for customers. TV owners can find compatible mount solutions via the OmniMount Finder online, watch installation videos on YouTube, or call 800.668.6848 to chat with a knowledgeable customer care team member 24/7.
