Custom extra wide baby gate for playroom

Custom extra wide baby gate for playroom Playrooms are the rooms in which children spent the most time alone, which is why parents must be extra careful in making sure this space is as childproofed as possible. Start by securing all dressers and shelves to the wall in order to prevent them from tipping over on children climbing on them. Avoid filling the room with toys that come with strings and cords (if this can’t be avoided make sure their lengths don’t exceed 6 inches), only buy age appropriate toys and periodically check consumer safety websites to ensure that products your child is using have not been recalled. If the room has windows make sure high quality window guards or window locks are in place, and install a suitable baby gate to keep your child confined to the secure area you’ve created.   The custom extra wide baby gate pictured above for example was placed strategically to keep little ones inside the playroom area and away from the desk and the staircase. Please remember to keep the area next to the gate clear of toys or furniture that could be used as a makeshift ladder or as a tool to gain height and climb over the protection.

Baby proofing a Play Room

Baby proofing a Play Room The play room is probably the area of the house in which your child will spend most of his awake time, so it’s important that it be baby proofed well enough to allow your baby the freedom to explore the world without the fear of him coming across something that may harm him. First of all start by installing blind cleats to keep cords away from reach as children could easily get them wrapped around their necks, or chew on them. Same thing applies to cords from phones, or other small appliances with plastic wire ties. Babies are smarter than one may think, and they quickly figure things out, so place a secondary protection on windows, such as locks or guards, and install self-closing outlets on frequently used outlets and all outlets with something plugged into it. Install a Carbon Monoxide Sensor and make sure that once your baby is placed in his play room, there is no way for him to get out of that space without your knowledge. The child safety gate pictured above was installed in a play room opening to do just that, to prevent the child from wandering off without your consent.

Best gate for top of stairs

Best gate for top of stairs Child safety gates are not all the same. Some gates are suitable for the top of the stairs, some for the bottom, some are suitable to limit a child’s access to a certain room, or to keep him away from a dangerous hazard as could be a fireplace. Pressure and tension mounted gates for example should never be used at the top of stairs regardless of what the manufacturer claims. They offer a false sense of security and can cause injury to you or your child as they could be easily dislodged or become a tripping hazard. It is also best not to use this type of gate in high traffic locations as they are often knocked out of alignment and consequently cease to lock properly. When baby proofing the top of the stairs hardware mounted gates, such as the one pictured below, are the perfect solution. Contrary to what most people may think, if installed properly, this child safety gate, will not only be easier to use, but will also cause less damage to your walls than pressure mounted gates would. This safety gate was installed by a Baby Safe Homes safety professional in replacement of the tension gate previously installed (which can be seen in the background) and which had become a hazard to this family. Baby Safe Homes will help you choose the right gate the first time around by using only high quality gates that are stable, easy to use, and have a sturdy mechanism.

Baby safety gate installed in a play area in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County Baby safety gates are used to keep babies OUT of danger zones such as stairs, kitchens and laundry rooms, but at the same time, are used to keep children IN. This large sectional child safety gate was recently installed in San Juan Capistrano by Baby Safe Homes Orange County to create a child safe play area.     Other than installing a baby gate to limit your baby’s moving space, we recommend other adjustments to further keep your child safe when creating a play area. Start by removing or blocking off tall floor lamps that could easily be pulled over, as well as securing top-heavy furniture with quality straps. Install blind cleats so cords are out of reach of the baby and make sure windows don’t open more than four inches. Remove glass-top coffee tables or replace glass with Plexiglas®, and pad sharp edges on tables and furniture. Check your electrical outlets, and make sure they are covered at all times.

Large custom sectional baby safety gate in Rancho Bernardo For most parents who begin thinking about childproofing their home, a baby gate is the first item that comes to mind. If the house is in fact equipped with stairs, it is almost certain that sooner or later your baby is going to want to climb them. It is always best when installing a child safety gate to place one both at the top and at the bottom of the stairs, to prevent as much as possible the risk of falls.

This gate in particular was placed using a no holes banister clamps to prevent damage to the banister post.     Please keep in mind that in children under two years of age, falls from stairs are the leading cause for visits to the emergency department.
