With the Sanus ELM701 anti-tip strap, you can ensure that your flat-panel TV remains securely on its stand — an important safety precaution if you have young children. The strap attaches to the back of your TV in two places, and runs a single line to the back of your stand or cabinet. The strap can support a TV up 70" in screen size. Included hardware creates a secure attachment to your stand or cabinet. The kit also includes an additional anchor so you can also attach the strap to the wall for even more stability.
Works OK. Should be part of the TV not an extra part to buy.
Nice free add on for my purchases. Ended up not needing it due to the great table I bought to hold the TV. Item looks strong and solid. Will safe for possible use down the road when I buy an additional TV for the bedroom.
Pros: solid Item, easy to attach
Cons: None at this time
Great media center for my 80' TV. Easy to assemble, but you should have someone help as it's heavy.
Pros: Looks great, well made, easy delivery, easy assembly
This is a very strong strap, and adjustable for spread distances. With a 65" TV, the forward tip possibility is high. Also, even if the TV is not accidentally tipped forward (by a youngster), these large screen TV's can slide VERY easily upon the furniture cabinets that they are placed upon. If a child should grab the legs or forward stand of the TV, they can EASILY pull the TV over the edge of the cabinet and lead to a terrible accident.
Pros: This strap is strong, and well made. You receive several pairs of screws to mount the strap to the rear of the TV, the larger set of screws fit my TV and I was pleased to see the size of the screws, large and strong. The price is very fair for this absolutely needed safety strap. Anyone NOT using a strap is being VERY foolish!!
Cons: The straight leg of the "Y" strap should be made longer. I wanted to mount this part of the strap to the rear wall behind the TV however the strap is too short to reach my wall, I needed about 8" more strap. (You are able to mount the straight leg of the strap to the rear edge of the cabinet that the TV sits upon, but many pieces of furniture have a 3/4" lip and this is NOT very strong in my opinion to hold a 65" TV without the possibility of tearing the holding screw out of the cabinet.
So far good sound
Pros: Looks good works well-designed to install was great
This strap does a great job of stabilizing my tv and keeping my kids safe. Great for peace of mind.
It's a strap you anchor to your TV and wall to keep your TV from falling over. Not much to say beyond that other than it seems to be well made.
Product does not fit my TV Samsung 60H7150.
Anti-tip strap was very easy to install and came with all necessary hardware and instructions
Pros: Excellent buy for kid safety
This product is very strong, is adjustable to accommodate different connection options and will certainly prevent any accidental tilting forward of our new free standing TV.
Pros: Strength of the product and the package includes all possible hardware for connecting the strapping to the back of the TV and wall..
Well made works perfectly
Pros: Does fine job.
Good product. Screws were slightly too short for my TV. An email to Sanus support was immediately answered (10 min!) and Sanus sent longer screws free of charge.
Pros: Great customer support by Sanus and good product

Perfect to protect tv [ Kathleen Dec 04, 2015 ]
The instructions show two options: 1) attached to the furniture and 2) attached to the top of the back of the furniture and then to the wall. [ David Feb 12, 2015 ]
The straps are adjustable, so yes, you can attach to the wall. Make sure you find a stud in the wall. Screw through the strap into a stud (not just sheetrock) for maximum effectiveness and safety. [ MICHAEL P Feb 10, 2015 ]
Attach to wall behind the TV to either a stud or using a molly bolt. TV doesn't weigh that much depending on it's size. If TV is in a cabinet, it could be attached to the rear wall of cabinet. Mine is mounted in a built-in cabinet. [ De Alva Feb 10, 2015 ]
Thank you so much, Douglas!!! I am amazed so many nice people took time to answer my question :) I really appreciate it, and i gotta get this! [ Vicki Feb 10, 2015 ]
Your options are either to a stud in the wall behind or to furniture stand that the TV sits on. I have mine attached to the wood entertainment center that the TV sits on. It works great as long as your stand has enough wood to grip the screw tightly and securely you should be fine. [ DOUGLAS M Feb 10, 2015 ]
You can attach it to both the wall behind the TV and the furniture at the same time. [ JUN SAN Feb 09, 2015 ]
yes It attaches the tv to the back of the cabinet and then to the wall behind. in order to be secure you must attach it to the wall. good luck [ NORMA Feb 09, 2015 ]
The kit includes a wall attachment extension too but I think it needs to connect to the furniture first to be properly held. [ Sean Feb 09, 2015 ]
