Installing a child safety gate or pet gate is not always easy, especially at the top of the stairs. Each house can have different mounting conditions that can affect installation such as hollow walls, banister posts, baseboards, baluster spindles, and more. Fortunately there are gate mounting kits available that can make it much easier to get your safety gates installed properly. Below are the merits of each available gate kit.

There are numerous child safety hazards to protect against in your bathroom. Never leave a child alone in the bathroom or let them play there. Below is a list of top hazards to protect.
1. Lock your toilet. Kids often like to play or place toys in the toilet. A Toilet Lock will keep them away from potential unsanitary conditions as well as the drowning hazard.
2. Move medicine out of reach, or lock it up in a Medicine Safe.
3. Supervise children while they bathe, never leave them unattended.
4. Make sure water temperature is safe for young kids. Set your water heater to 120 degrees or less to prevent scalding. You can also use a bath tub thermometer to check.
5. Safeguard toiletries and cleaners in cabinets and drawers with Cabinet Safety Locks.
6. Prevent falls with bath mats and safety grips.
7. Cushion or shield the tub spout to prevent head bumps with a Tub Spout Cover.
8. Make sure there are no dangling cords from hair dryers or other plug-ins. Put away if necessary.
9. Do not place used razors or other dangerous items in a accessible waste basket.
10. Consider using a door top lock to keep the child out altogether.

child scalding, child scalds, home safety, kitchen safety, scald prevention
“A scald injury occurs when contact with hot liquid or steam damages one or more layers of skin”. And this kind of burn is very painful and can be life threatening for small children who are more vulnerable.
40% of all scald injuries are suffered by children aged 0-4.
In order to prevent scalding here are a few great tips:
- Set your water heater at 120 degrees for a medium setting.
- When filling the tub for a child use a thermometer to judge if it’s too hot.
- Run your hand under the water before allowing your child to get in the tub.
- Purchase a Faucet & Tap Protector that helps prevent bumps and bruises.
- Wear long oven mitts when handling hot food
- Turn all pot handles inward
- Use a Stove Guard to keep little ones from hot stove burners.
If you do burn your skin: Run cold water over it for 3 minutes or more. Don’t use butter or ice and call 911 if the burn looks really bad.
Be safe and be aware!

Between 2008 and 2010 there were 22,000 furniture tip-over injuries to children younger than 9 according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Furniture safety is not hard and it is not expensive.
A simple strap attached to the wall and the furniture will take care of tip-overs. An “Anti-Tip Furniture Strap” made by Kidco will do the trick and put your mind at ease when it comes to a large piece of furniture possibly spilling over onto your child.
For more ideas on furniture safety please go to “Home Furniture Safety”.
