Cover Up Your Television

safetvision.net television screen protectors!

Your partner’s three favorite things (in no particular order, of course) are you, your kids, and the fancy new high-definition television.

And rue the day the kids decide to turn the TV into a splatter paint canvas.

Which is why we think you’ll appreciate the SafeTVision screen protector. Made of clear acrylic, the cover keeps your beloved’s beloved flat-screen safe from harm caused by Wii remotes, crayons, curious fingers, and runaway baseballs (as if they would ever be inside your house!).

We tested the screen in our own living room and were surprised by how quickly it installed (for perspective, it took us two years to figure out the remote control). There were no ill effects on the image or reflection issues.

In fact, after we clipped it over the screen, we almost forgot it was there. Until we realized that instead of watching the kids like a hawk, we were actually watching the TV.

Available online at safetvision.net, $49-$129.
