by the manufacturer of the television.
• Only using furniture that can safely
support the television.
• Ensuring the television is not
overhanging the edge of the supporting
furniture.
• Not placing the television on tall
furniture (for example, cupboards or
bookcases) without anchoring both the
furniture and the television to a suitable
support.
• Not standing the televisions on cloth or
other materials placed between the
television and supporting furniture.
• Educating children about the dangers of
climbing on furniture to reach the
television or its controls.
