But a TV that a family member got recently (a 40" Bravia LED) it says in the instructions to get two wood screws and some "strong cord" (all not supplied) to stop the TV falling over. Seems a bit cheap.
My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
NonprayingMantis: Probably a combination of a few factors
1 cost cutting by manufacturers
2 TVs are much much thinner and therefore lighter now than 5 years ago, so much less dangerous if/when they do fall. My new 46 inch Sony Bravia weighs less than half of the weight of my 5 year old 32 inch. If my 46 inch tv fell on my toddler it might hurt but I doubt it would do any serious damage.
3 a larger proportion of people wall mount their TVs, rendering these components useless items for those people.
mattwnz: It should really be law that they are provided. They can be very dangerous with young children, and if not provided, people are likely to forget about installing them. NZ is an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff country, so it will likely take someone getting injured or killed for it to change.
