How to support consumers

• Provide anti-tip devices for purchase in-store to secure TVs and furniture.
• Use in-store displays to remind shoppers of the danger and help them find anti-tip devices.
• If possible, display TVs and furniture with anti-tip devices in the display to show consumers how to use the anti-tip device on their new purchase.
• Train sales associates to inform consumers about the dangers of TV and furniture tip-over incidents and how to prevent them with anti-tip devices.
• Provide incentives for owners purchasing new flat screen TVs to properly dispose of older CRT TVs that are heavier and more likely to injure a child if it were to tip over.

Complying with safety standards for furniture
