I lost my keys while going on a run. I called Top Atlanta Locksmith LLC and the tech was fast, efficient, and professional. Oh and reasonably priced. I scoured the web for quotes and they were the lowest in price.

How to Child Proof Your Windows and Doors

Child proofing your doors and windows is a must if you have children in your house. You can never be too careful when it comes to your kids’ safety.

In this article, we will look at some of the ways to child proof your doors and windows.

How to Child Proof Windows

  • Install Window Guards

Window guards are essentially a set of metal bars that cover a portion of the window or the entire window. These guards keep children from tumbling out of an open window when not under direct supervision. Window guards come with a safety mechanism that you can use to open the window in case of fire or other emergency.

  • Stow the Window Cords

While window blind cords may seem harmless, for small children, they pose the risk of strangulation. Every year, a number of children injure themselves, and others die as a result of getting strangled by window cords. You should install hooks on the surrounding wall and wrap the cords.

  • Install Child Proof Window Locks

Installing child-safety window locks is an effective way to prevent young children from opening your windows. Many contemporary windows come with standard locks, which curious kids can learn to open. That’s where child-safety window locks come in handy. These locks come in a wide range of styles, so whether you have sliders, double-hung windows, or awning windows, it is easy to find window locks that work for you. An experienced residential locksmith can help you choose and install the right child proof window locks in your home.

  • Window Stops

Installing window stops is another effective way to child proof your windows and have peace of mind knowing your children won’t be able to open windows wide enough to climb out. Window stops are wedge-like devices that allow you to open a window only to a certain point.

How to Child Proof Doors

  • Install a deadbolt

The easiest way to child proof your doors is by installing a deadbolt. Make sure the deadbolt is fixed above the handle so that children cannot reach the latch. An experienced residential locksmith can help you choose and install the right deadbolt for your doors. As an alternative, you can opt for a security door chain.

  • Child proof door knobs

Install safety covers on door knobs to prevent children from opening the door. These covers are simply installed over door knobs and snapped into place to prevent the knob from turning. They make it difficult for children to open the door, but adults can bypass them with a pinch.

  • Install keypad door locks

If a door is too easy for kids to open, it poses serious risks to curious children. Keep your young children from wandering off unsupervised with keypad door locks that require a numeric code to grant entry.
