Home Safety

W
e are all guilty of taking the safety for granted but our homes are extremely dangerous places, especially for under fives. Luckily there are many gadgets to help but mums won’t buy unless they know about them!

Parents often come looking for safety gates and can easily get confused as the the pros and cons of the various types. Clear information is essential whether online or in the shop. They are an essential piece of equipment for every family with stairs and a useful thing for many others. A good range is an important facet of every nursery store.

Customers looking for safety gates also create the opportunity to create add-on sales. There are many useful gadgets out there which won't strain the bank balance but could prevent many an accident.

Apart from safety gates, many retailers think in terms of cupboard locks but there are many other useful items. The newest products are designed to keep little ones safe from slamming doors, something many parents don't think about until they spend the day in A&E with crushed fingers.

Safety gives many opportunities for cross selling. Someone buying a cot? Remind them of nightlights. A baby bath? What about a thermometer?

Too many children are injured each year in situations that often could have been avoided if only...

It’s worth broaching the subject of safety whenever customers come to look at equipment. It’s more important than simply making another sale – though every little helps!!


Cheeky safety with Fred

Fred is the result of years of collaborative effort between a father and son team of Danish designers (with almost 60 years of experience with home safety products!), and product specialists from the UK, USA, Germany and China.

Every one of the team is deeply committed to improving child safety – and there is a lot we can do.

Every week, at least 1 child under 5 is killed in the UK in an accident, more than 75% of these fatal accidents happen in the home. 60 under 5's are hospitalised each week as a result of a burn or a scald, and no-one knows how many more are hurt to a lesser extent (data taken from ROSPA accident statistics).

Nothing beats parental supervision, but accidents can happen; each and every clever little idea from Fred is designed to improve child safety to give parents peace of mind. Safer by design and engineered using high performance materials, Fred products are fantastically quick and easy to install. Our findings are that too many safety products are bought and never installed so we have put a lot of effort into simple, full colour you-can-do-it instructions and videos.

EZ-Tools™ simplify the tricky lining up of locks and catches, spirit levels and fittings are included as required and we use adhesives wherever it is safe to do so.

The ideal way to stop children from rummaging through drawers and cupboards, the locks feature a catch that unlocks with the use of a magnetic key which can be kept out of reach of children, preventing access to dangerous items such as knives, batteries and household chemicals.

The locks are easy to fit with a simple peel and stick system, fixing screws are also provided for use if required and there’s a locating tool in the box to ensure precise positioning and alignment when fitting. For added convenience, the locks can be deactivated when not required.

Clippasafe Managing Director Roger Cheetham said of the new addition to the range: “This Magnetic Lock will make securing cupboards and drawers really easy for parents because of the simplicity of fitting – there is no compromise on the strength or effectiveness of the product so peace of mind is guaranteed too.”

Clippasafe’s Magnetic Locks retail at £11.99 for a pack of 2 locks with 1 key.
Mail Order packs are also available for sale in any combination of locks and keys.
