In every family, the birth of a newborn is a joyous occasion. They are the light of our lives that bring us endless laughter and happiness. In exchange, parents scramble to baby proof their home and make sure that it’s a safe and liveable space for the young ones. We get caps to cover off sharp edges of a table, use cabinet locks to prevent their access etc, but one area we often overlook is the windows.
Importance of Child Safety Window Locks
A growing child is often unaware of the dangers of the outside world. They bump around, climb, use their little hands and feet to feel a world that they know little about. While some parents encourage their child to explore on their own, there are certain things that just can’t be explored.
But many other families aren’t that lucky. A quick google search on the internet and you’ll see cases of little children falling to their death here in Singapore. Most of these cases are usually the result of a combination of lack of supervision and the curious mind of a toddler. Even when the parents are at home, we can’t constantly look over our kid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (the mother of the above mentioned case was a home maker). The best we can do is to take measures to prevent such a accident from happening.
It is a sad case and it is especially so considering how all these cases could have been easily prevented with the use of proper equipment and tools.
What are Child Safety Window Locks?
Child safety locks work very similarly to cabinet locks. It locks the windows in place and restricts the window from excessive opening. This prevents kids, toddlers or even adults from opening the window either intentionally or unintentionally. This controlled gap allows for air to flow into the house, yet is restrictive enough that it kids would not be able to climb out of the window.
