My daughter recently turned a year old and quickly got into everything — so we had to childproof again much sooner than we had expected. So, we turned to products from Safety 1st to make our home secure from our little Houdini. We love Safety 1st’s Essentials Childproofing kit ($9.99). It contains 4 Grip and Twist Door Knob Covers, 12 Wide Grip Latches and 30 Press ‘n Pull Plug Protectors. I like the Grip and Twist Door Knob Covers because they are the only door knob covers that actually work on our bedroom, closet, and bathroom doors (we had been through many brands). I like that you can actually touch the door through the grip holes — which was very helpful. The Press ‘n Pull Latches were great because you have to push in the little prong to release them from the outlet –meaning my little lady couldn’t yank them out herself. The Wide Grip Latches came in handy when my little gal started opening any cabinet and drawer she could reach (as well as getting up on a stepstool to get at more drawers).
We also put some other products from Safety 1st into service. The Magnetic Tot Lok Starter Set ($13.99) is magnetic locking system that helps keeps cabinets and drawers closed. This starter set includes two locks and one key. It was easy to install, but you’ll need a hand drill and a Phillips screwdriver. We also installed the ProGrade™ Push-Button Toilet Lock ($22.99) to secure the toilet lid. It fits all standard toilets, just use the push-button for to open with one hand. It has a locking indicator, an adjustable base for a custom fit and it attaches to existing toilet hardware.
Safety 1st’s products are widely available.
