    Hearing aid batteries are smaller than a pencil eraser, and I would imagine a child could pop a few of them like candy if left laying around. :ouch:

    Thanks ron for sharing Indeed good reminder to parents,thank goodness my kids are all of age now to know better.

    This reminds of a story told to me from a sales rep about a sony 32 flat screen not lcd but trinitron tube television of about 300 pounds that where equipt with a anchor on the back that bolts to the stand due to being front heavy.The sales man in the store told me that a child had pulled down on the top of the front bezel or frame around the glass and it toppled over to crush a child to death.

    It was setup for display and who ever set it up failed to anchor the heavy duty strap attactecd to the television needed to be bolted to the matching factory stand.

    Keep out of reach of small children and keep heavy objects secured as directed,there is good reasons for warnings and precautions yet some folks ignore.Something that takes so little time to prevent the loss of a precious life.
