Improperly installed baby gate

Once your baby starts to crawl,  a strategically placed baby safety gate can make your life easier, safer, and provide much needed peace of mind.

Keeping your baby away from potential dangers, such as stairs, home offices, pets, exercise equipment or rooms that have a lot of hazards, is essential for your child’s well being.

Most new parents, with the best of intentions, visit their local Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby or online baby stores and choose a gate based on their appearance and their reviews. Our tip when doing this kind of research is to keep in mind that appearance is often misleading. Also, reviews are usually posted immediately after the purchase, meaning that the trial period of the product hasn’t been long enough to actually proof it functions correctly. On top of all of this, please keep in mind that buying a baby gate is only a small part of the process. You have to be able to properly install it too.

Pictured below is an improperly installed baby gate our team has recently come across. This gate was bought by trusty parents, who then hired a handy man to install it in their home.

Improperly installed baby gate This improperly installed baby gate is not only missing parts, but it’s so far off the floor an adult could fit underneath, never mind a child.

This baby gate is not only missing parts, but it’s also so far off the floor, that an adult could fit underneath it, never mind a small child.

This gate was a waste of time, money, and only offers a false sense of security.

Don’t risk your child’s safety by improperly installing a wrong gate.

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
