If the picture is supposed to be one with the protection then please point out where or what that protection is. Also you should note that implosion is the opposite of explosion. Since CRTs are under very high vacuum then they could only implode not explode.

i just added an idea it's not strange for an old TV to explode or implode ! faraway from the technical details, it's possible to happen if the TV tube isn't equipped with such protection , that's all!
