Custom childproofing safety locks for kitchen appliances
Kitchens are full of potential hazards. These include gas, electricity, sharp utensils, chemicals, breakable glass and dishes, garbage disposals, and most of all fire hazards.
According to a study carried out between 1990 and 2006, thermal burns caused by heat and fire accounted for nearly 60% of all child injuries, with most of these accidents relating to kitchen appliances.

Other baby proofing devices that keep children from burning themselves are stove knob covers which prevent infants from accidentally turning the fire on.
Although baby proofing devices add a layer of protection to your home, nothing beats a parent’s watchful eye. Be mindful of the dangers your kitchen may carry and behave accordingly. A simple gesture as using the back burners to cook when children are around, or remembering to turn all pot handles toward the back of the stove, can go a long way.
