The straps come configured for attachment to the wall. If you want to attach the straps to your TV stand or unit, you have to reverse the straps. Very easy to do, with simple instructions provided, so not a big deal. The screws that come with the straps that are used to either attach to the wall or your TV stand or unit are a non-standard size, somewhere between a 6 and an 8. These screws are made of soft metal. I stripped the head of two screws trying to screw them in to my TV unit with a power drill. So, I had to go to the hardware store to pick up a couple of replacements. I went with the size 8 screw. These screwed in just fine. I like the straps and how they secure my TV to my TV unit. With the exception of the soft metal screws getting stripped, installing the straps was pretty easy. I live in earthquake-prone California so having my TV fully secured to my TV unit with the straps makes me feel a lot less concerned about my TV tipping forward and off of my TV unit. Overall a very good product that's easy to install and that provides good protection for your TV.

Kid Proofing TVs
Great Drambaby product! If you have rambunctious kids, like we do, you need to install these TV straps to keep your kids safe and save your TV! A definite need if you have kids that like to shake TV stands or tables, or try climbing furniture. You don't want the TV falling forward onto them! Hubby easily installed these straps. They simply attach to the holes in the back of the TV and he screwed the anchors into the back of our entertainment unit. The straps are adjusted to tautness so the TV cannot tip forward. We would recommend these TV straps to anyone with children.

Major defiency was the length of screws. They were too short for a 2015 Sansung 49" TV.
With the help of sales people at the local HD I was able to obtain two 1 inch metric screws to anchor the straps to the TV.
