Childproofing your windows and doors

  1. Childproof window locks 

A sure-fire way to make your windows extra-safe is by adding locks to your windows. 

Although some windows already come with safety locks, there are a variety of locks available, suitable for all window types providing extra safety. 

Keeping your windows locked, and even hiding the key, can prevent children from opening them and falling out. 

  1. Window stops 

Window stops are a childproofing window feature that controls how far your window can open. 

Window stops restrict windows from opening further than a 4-inch gap, making it virtually impossible for a small child to fall through. 

  1. Slamming prevention devices 

Slamming prevention devices are an effective way of making doors safer for children.

Typically made from foam, slamming prevention devices prevents a door from shutting completely. 

They help stop fingers from getting shut in the door by providing a safety layer between the door, keeping your child’s fingers free from harm. 

  1. Slimline door protectors 

Slimline protectors can be attached to your internal doors and provide a temporary solution to preventing hands from getting stuck in doors. 

They are detachable so can easily be removed when your child grows up and the protector is no longer needed.
