Do You Think Velcro Strips Would Work?

I want my cable box to sit on top of my flat screen TV.

The way my room is set up, there is a buffet in my room and the TV pretty much has to go there because of where the cable line is.

The cable box atm does balance on top of my flat screen but could be knocked off pretty easily. It's pretty lightweight.

So do you think velcro strips would work? LOL I am trying to find a way to make it not fall..

The buffet is built in, and behind it/behind the TV is windows. I do not want to put the cable box to the side of the TV.

I would worry about it being top heavy.

I'd worry it'd take the tv with it if it falls. Maybe put a little shelf over the tv to set it on?

Put a shelf up on the wall BEHIND the TV, don't set shit on top of a flat screen!

I can't. The buffet is built in and behind it is windows. There's no wall for me to put a shelf there.

It balances on the TV, I mean it stays put but it could get knocked off easily.

Hm, maybe then. Worth a try, velcro's pretty cheap. Or those magic hanger things from the info-mercials lol, I don't remember what they're called... Little sticky things that'll hold up an entire couch!!
