Stow the Window Cords
On many windows, there are cords that open and close the blinds on windows. These cords may seem harmless, but actually pose a significant hidden risk. Children could easily become tangled in window cords, potentially blocking their air supply. If cordless blinds are not an option, install an out-of-reach hook on which to wrap the cords on the surrounding wall.
Window Guards for Kids
For the commonly found single and double-hung windows, you can purchase and easily install small wedges, known as window stoppers, to prevent a child from opening a window when not under direct supervision. If your home is in a tall building or far off of the ground, a solution like this could be life-saving.
Proper Door Locks
Opening and closing a door independently can put your child at risk for injury or wandering off unsupervised. Keep little fingers safe from slammed doors with a door lock that requires a code.
Child-Proof Door Knobs
Install safety covers on door knobs that don’t require a key or code. These safety covers are typically plastic and prevent the knob from turning; only the plastic cover will shift.
