A lot of people who have children take the time to child-proof their home. From safety gates/barriers, corner guards, to plug covers – these products help prevent accidents from happening. The new Anti-Tip Strap from Sanus aims to secure your flatscreen to the wall and prevent it from tipping over, which is good especially if you own a big and heavy TV.
A lot of people have a notion that a plasma or LCD TV is ‘secure’ once placed on top of a table. However, these flatscreens can accidentally be bumped or tipped over, causing serious injury to children and adults.
Sanus has always been known for its great mounts, but this new strap selling for $49.95 adds a bit more safety to the home. Almost everything that you need to secure your television to a compatible table is in the package. The unit comes with an adjustable strap, washers, screws, spacers and wall attachment.
Not all the hardware included will be used, so make sure you read the manual in full before taking steps in installing the strap. You need to hand thread the screws into the inserts on the back of your TV to determine the correct screw diameter.

After hooking the strap together with the spacers, washers and screws to the television, you can now hook it up to compatible furniture or drill a hole on your wood furniture and tighten the screw. Finally, users can attach the anchor bracket to the wall and attach the strap for added security.
The whole process of installing the anti-tip strap takes about 20-30 minutes and can be done alone. After making sure that the straps are tight and the screws are fastened, it no longer needs any more attention. The universal design of the strap makes it compatible with TVs up to 60-inches.
Overall, the Sanus Anti-Tip Strap is a great investment for those who want a secure television at home. It is affordable, easy to install, and provides you with peace of mind. It is available now for $49.95 at Harvey Norman stores nationwide.
