Tips to get your new tv home safely

Big-screen TVs are fragile and should be handled with care. Here are key steps to follow to ensure the safe transportation and set up of a new TV.

Tips to Keep Your TV Damage-Free

Your new TV is super amazing. It's also super fragile. Follow these helpful tips to get it home and set up safely.

  • Never lay your TV flat — especially in your vehicle.
  • Always use two people to carry or mount your TV.
  • When unpacking, follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Always use mounting hardware that fits your TV.
  • Don't pinch — when your fingers and thumb pinch the edge of the TV, the glass can break.
