I got a 60 inch Vizomax TV Screen Protector for LCD, LED & Plasma HDTV

Probably the most expensive route but well worth the investment and small price to pay to protect my Samsung 60" 4K from grown adults in VR to my toddler with a solid throwing arm.

Can a cat's claws damage the screen of an LED television? What's the best (& cheapest) substance I can lay over the screen to prevent damage? As some here may recall, my partner and I recently adopted a kitty, but we unfortunately work for much of the day and so are seeking ways to keep him entertained in our absence (when we're around he gets lots of active playtime, walks, snuggles, pets, etc.). To that end, we've purchased and made for him various toys (e.g ones where you slap a ball around a track or chase a sock hanging from a string), scattered puzzle feeders around the apartment (to simulate foraging), ensured access to many comfy spots next to windows, and so on.

Recently, I bought a TV to replace the one in the bedroom, and since they they've fallen in price so much lately (I mean $100 for a 4K 50" panel, really), our old 40" 1080P screen is probably worthless (esp. considering we bought it for $150 5y ago). Conversely, I've noticed the kitty really likes various online 'cat game' videos, e.g. 1, 2. I have some old raspberry pi's & smart outlets etc. lying around, so I was thinking of ripping a bunch of them and having the TV loop through them every so often in our absence (and also set up a live webcam feed obvi). The screen would be positioned horizontally, probably on the floor, so that he can pretend to hunt or w/e.

We keep his claws trimmed, but I'd still expect them to be able to damage the LED TV screen with enough pounces -- is that expectation well founded? If it is, what would be the best substance to layer atop the screen so that he can't scratch it it? Preferably something on the cheaper end -- while a 35" x 20" glass panel would indeed be harder than his claws, it would cost way way more than the tv itself. I also think acrylic / pcb would scratch too easily? There look to be products that might suit my needs but they're also a bit pricey.

Other updates, for those curious -- his incision has mostly healed over, and we took him on his first 'real' hike last weekend, where he 'performed' very well! (minimal tugging, keeping pace consistently)

Thanks for any help!

The only way to get scratches that deep out of a TV is to use the blood of two recently orphaned children...

Edit: Also for future visits from surviving nephews, consider purchasing something like this.

u/AllMyBitchesLuvMe · 6 pointsr/DIY

Here is the cover we got.

u/neolfex · 6 pointsr/OLED

I bought this cover for mine. It slides on and off very easily.

u/Phunguy · 4 pointsr/phoenix

u/InSOmnlaC · 3 pointsr/Vive

Next time, get something like this.

u/jimbolaya · 3 pointsr/Parenting

I posted this in another thread.

You could try cutting the correct size from a 4'X8' sheet of acrylic from Home Depot ($110). Attach it using velcro. You could also just buy something pre-made from Amazon.

u/beepboop616 · 3 pointsr/Autism_Parenting

55 inch TV-ProtectorTM TV Screen Protector for LCD, LED, OLED and QLED 4K HDTV

We bought this after my son threw his water bottle through our first tv. Worth the price.

u/PeaceBull · 2 pointsr/apple

Aside from not putting anything big enough above it that could fall and damage an iMac.

  • get as sturdy of a desk as possible (I have a 1950s metal tanker desk)
  • Get these quakehold straps
u/Henry_Yopp · 2 pointsr/Vive
u/_mutelight_ · 2 pointsr/hometheater

There is this but it is expensive.

Out of curiosity, what are you thinking will come in contact with your screen?

u/Little_birds_mommy · 2 pointsr/raisingkids

TV secure set that we used. TVs falling on kids is more common than thought. When mine started to toddle, nothing became safe.

u/esequielo · 1 pointr/Vive

UV light is what causes the damage. Hell, direct UV light is even bad for a regular LCD. Brief exposure is no biggie, but prolonged and regular exposure will cause damage.

Besides curtains/shades you could also get something like this

They also make window films that block UV light, but they're usually tinted (turns your windows into sunglasses basically).

u/johnriven · 1 pointr/AskReddit

If you want to be practical and this is really your concern use these earthquake straps.

u/magneticbetty · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

This has happened to our TV in the past too, so we secure it now with these TV straps. They work really well!

Having the straps means I don't have to get that horrible spike of adrenaline every time the kitty slips behind the TV anymore. (The last time I saw it starting to tip and lunged off the couch toward the TV, trying to catch it. Managed to get far enough forward for it to land partially on me, but not to stop it hitting the ground and breaking. Ow.)

u/SideOfBeef · 1 pointr/dndnext

Haven't used a TV for minis specifically, but I can tell you that any sort of plastic object (like the plastic base that a mini stands on) is a risk for scratches.

You could pick up one of these:

That said, have you tried setting up the TV and sitting around it in a realistic position? The viewing angle might be difficult for players depending on their height.

u/rabel10 · 1 pointr/OLED

I use one of these:

Put it where your cat likes to jump up. I put it behind the TV at night so he doesn't get to the cables.

I also have this TV cover. I use it mostly for the occasional sunlight that comes in, but it does keep him from rubbing on the TV.

u/Sir_Honytawk · 1 pointr/Vive

Should have gone with a projector instead if you could. The hitbox is much smaller.

But maybe could get a TV-sized tempered glass cover?


Well what do you know, they have literal armor for TVs:

u/TrefoilHat · 1 pointr/oculus

Any concerns with punching the TV?

Something like this (or a do-it-yourself version) could be useful for those intense Unspoken games...

u/faderjockey · 1 pointr/daddit

Strap a piece of lexan across the screen, and duck!

u/telos0 · 1 pointr/4kTV

My toddler smashed a TV by throwing a toy at it so I bought an acrylic screen protector for the new one. So far has worked great.

Something like this:

u/jbaker1225 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Maybe not totally possible in your use case, but I just have a small hole drilled into the garage, fished an outdoor extension cord through the hole, and put some packing and sealant around it to keep pests/weather out. I just run an Apple TV that I velcroed to the back of the TV for streaming apps/TV.

If a garage-adjoining wall doesn’t work/exist for you, you could probably do something similar but just with some conduit to an interior wall.

Finally, the example picture you posted has plenty of room for an outdoor outlet box. They only sit a couple inches off the wall, and that TV easily has 6 inches of wall clearance at the top. Also, they’re not usually pretty, but get a weather cover to put on it when not in use. Something like this

I’ve had my TV up for 3 years now with no problems using one of those.
