Daddy B hates installing these things, but Baby G is an adventurer and loves to climb. He’s pretty clever about it, pulling out drawers to step on like a ladder to get to the top. Bureaus and other furniture are a huge risk around kids like him because they WILL tip onto your child, something that can obviously cause severe injury or death. I find the time it takes to install baby proofing items is worth it for peace of mind, especially in areas like their bedroom or playroom where you might want to let them play somewhat unsupervised. It’s nice to know you can let them play in their room for a few minutes in the morning without hearing a crash in the other room. Did you ever have furniture fall on you as a kid? I did, up to and including when I was wayyyyy too old to be tipping it over. Fortunately, I survived.
I have to share this find because I know there’s a lot of different types of these and I was excited about how easy everything was to move with this brand. I read through a ton of reviews and this was the one feature that sold me. It’s great for moving furniture to vacuum or get an item that dropped. Seeing EVERYTHING drops behind the changing table it’s very useful.
Otherwise they all really do the same job.
It’s a bit hard to reach behind so I used pliers (I hope that’s what these are, haha) and squeezed the release, and pulled the end loose. Very simple! You can do it by squeezing with your fingers, but it’s not as easy.
Here’s the excess amount of baby proofing on the outlets too. These outlet covers snap closed when a plug is pulled out (Gs favorite thing to do). I also put the regular plug covers in them because he’s smart enough to try to open the sliding “doors” to the cover so I’m hoping repeated failure will bore him and he will move on to better tasks. My only complaint with these is that the covers don’t completely cover the area that the old covers did… this was true at both our condo and house. But I tested and I don’t think it’s possible to squeeze a finger inside.
