Child Proof Perfect ( Momimhar posted on December 15th, 2012 )

If you have kids then you know that it is important to child-proof your home. Furniture is often overlooked, but it shouldn’t be because kids have been severely injured by furniture. There are ways to reduce the risk as much as possible so that you and your kids can have fun without the risk of injury.

Keeping Things in Their Place

A table leg leveler is one of the easiest ways to do this. If a table is wobbling back and forth this could lead to injury. For example, if you have a wobbly coffee table and your small child climbs onto it, when it wobbles he or she could lose his or her balance and fall off. Since kids like to climb and no one has eyes in the back of their heads, it is important to make sure that all tables are strong and steady just in case the kids ends up climbing onto it.

Drawer Locks

Dressers are heavy items and when you have a drawer open, they can become even heavier. Say you left the top drawer open, well your child can pull on this and pull the entire dresser onto him or her. This could be a very dangerous accident. One way to help prevent this is to put locks on the drawers. If the drawers cannot be opened, then the child will not be able to hang on them and risk pulling the entire piece of furniture onto him or herself.

Keep Cords Out of Sight

Kids are curious and will do so many things to try and figure out this world. Cords can be easily pulled and whatever it is attached to can come crashing down. For example, if your computer monitor cord is right where your child can grab onto it, he or she may pull the cord and then the monitor may fall onto your child. This could cause serious injury. So, make sure that all cords are placed in a way that a child is not able to get to them and start tugging. Clustering cords with plastic pull ties and then securing them under a desk or to a wall is a quick and easy way to keep your child safe.
