Numi Extending Safety Gate - great but some teething problems
Review of Lindam Numi Extending Aluminium Safety Gate by thellism

Advantages: Robust, discreet when open, easy to use and adjust, look good
Disadvantages: gate runners will not slide into mount when screws are in place, beware of dado rails

I bought 2 of these for the top and bottom of the stairs after careful consideration of the alternatives. They were not as expensive as some such as folding gate designs and offered the ease of opening/closing that some simpler models do not. After inst ... Read review

Keeping corners safe

Something of a disappointment
Review of Lindam Easy Fit Plus Gate by ChristopherRobinRyder

Advantages: seemingly none
Disadvantages: easily pushed over regardless of how you tighten it up

I had bought this product a while ago, as my daughter had began running and walking around and obviously I don't want her going up the stairs or even down them without my knowledge or supervision. I saw this and bought it, thinking that it would keep he ... Read review

Plug sockets baby safe. Babydan twisting socket covers.
Review of Babydan Twisting Plug Socket Cover by mcfcdave12

Advantages: Cover the socket keeping little fingers out.
Disadvantages: Can be slightly difficult to remove without the spare cover to use.

One of the first things most parents do when they have a child is to think about how safe their home is. One safety issue is plug sockets. A small child could easily stick a finger or any toy that is thin enough into one of the holes in the socket and obv ... Read review

Great review by roblee138
I have to give this an E, simply because it is about a very important, yet simple device that can save lives. I remember when my nephew was a baby, just able to walk, but more times than not still shuffled along on his behind. He had somehow gotten hold of his dad's screw driver, having seen his dad fixing the socket at about floor level, decide he would have a go.. I dread to think what would have happened had he managed to shove the screwdriver into the socket. by Gooseydyoo

Review of Clippasafe Door Stopper by muffin11

Advantages: Easy to take on and off, stop door
Disadvantages: Ugly looking

I've had these door stoppers for a number of years now and I have to say they are probably one of the best baby proofing products I have bought and would definitely recommend them. When my kids were very young these were a great idea to stop them from s ... Read review

Disadvantages: Does not do what it promises, net sags into the cot when weight is applied

Socket covers work for us
Review of Clippasafe Plug Socket Covers by cornishchic

Advantages: Hard to get off of the socket, unappealing
Disadvantages: None for us!

There is a lot of controversy over socket covers, some people find them more of a danger than no socket covers at all due to safety features that are already installed into sockets. I researched into socket covers well before making my mind up and decided ... Read review

Review of Mothercare Socket Covers by sympatic

Advantages: Cheap and easy to fit
Disadvantages: None

Baby proofing the house is an essential thing to do once they start to crawl and walk about and the natural inquisitiveness of a baby could also put them at risk. You get 12 socket covers in a pack and they cost £6.99 so they are nice and affordable. They ... Read review

I wouldn't want to risk a child sticking something in a plughole even if they are supposed to be safe! by catsholiday
I've read that it can actually make sockets less safe because it opens the socket, and things can be shoved into the small gap by curious fingers. Can't remember where I've seen it though >.< by fallen_flame
