Prevent your curious toddler from accessing potentially dangerous areas such as the bathroom, garage, basement, or storage rooms with these door knob covers. They simply snap on, making it easy for adults to grip, squeeze and turn but hard for little hands to do the same (£3.95, safetots.co.uk).
Stop your toddler opening cupboard doors (and slamming or catching their fingers in them) with these special latches, which hold doors together until you unhook them. They’re also ideal for cupboards containing cleaning products or glassware – we all know how tots like to explore (£4, amazon.co.uk).
Prevent your toddler turning the key and getting locked in with the BabyDan Key Guard. It can be used with most types of keys – cylinder and household – simply fasten your key into the key guard, put it back into the lock and the double locking mechanism means the unit will turn without the key moving. If you need to lock the door, you just press it in and turn the key (£2.69, safetots.co.uk). Easy!
Acting like a door wedge, the Jamm Doorstop slides under the door to prevent it from opening or closing in either direction and safely holds it ajar, ensuring little fingers and toes are kept protected from slamming doors and hinges. It’s made from a special material that grips the floor surface and holds the door fast until you’re ready to remove it (£4.95, jammproducts.com)
With swinging doors, you need to watch out in case your toddler gets his fingers caught near the hinge (if this has ever happened to you, you’ll know how painful it is). These finger trap protection strips provide a barrier from the floor up to a height of 120cm (you can also buy one for 180cm heights) and can be fitted using strong adhesive (£20.99, clippasafe.co.uk).
