Topic tags/keywords: question secure tv

I have a situation: a large TV sitting in to pod a cabinet, as shown. It has a large stand but there is some worries about it falling over in an earthquake. I truly don’t have any ideas on securing it to the cabinet. The owner does not want any holes in the top of the unit.
If anyone has ideas on this matter,I would appreciate your help.
Thanks,
El

Geeze, if the owner doesn’t want holes in the top of the cabinet, THAT’S gonna narrow down the choices quite a bit!

Maybe you could secure some webbing strap (like they strap freight down on a pallet) to the back of the tv with a spot of adhesive (up high) and then go down to the shelf in the rear. Then secure the strap to the BOTTOM of that shelf in the back. At least that would keep it from falling FORWARD to the floor, but not backwards to the wall.

If not that…. how ‘bout drop a 50lb bag of sand on those 2 back legs? :-)

Just be honest and tell them you can’t accommodate unreasonable request.
