Children should be safe at home; but we all know these little explorers get up to all kinds of mischief and the best will in the world won’t keep them from harm’s way. Lindam gives us some top tips for safe-proofing your home.
KEEP THEM WHERE YOU WANT THEM WITH SAFETY GATES

Pressure Fit Safety Gates & Barrier – all Pressure Fit gates are easy to install with no need for drilling and feature new pressure fit indicators for extra reassurance when installing. The range of gates offers a choice of opening and closing mechanisms as well as multi-locking opportunities to protect little ones from potential danger. The prices range from £23.99-£39.99 and include a variety of gates from the Sure Shut Axis and Easy Fit Plus Deluxe (RRP: £23.99) both with an easy open handle, to the Sure Shut Porte (RRP: £25.99) which works with an easy push-to-shut closing mechanism. The range also includes the Sure Shut Orto (RRP: £27.99) which has a clever auto closing hinge to ensure the gate always remained closed.

All Lindam Pressure Fit Safety Gates can be extended with a range of extensions (starting at £8.99) to accommodate different size openings and meet the needs of any home.
We were sent two Lindam Easy Fit Deluxe Pressure Gates to review and the difference they have made has been enormous. We have had stairgates in the house for the last 6 years following the birth of Isaac and years of being slammed shut, swung on, climbed over and generally abused by both my family and the children I look after have really taken there toll. None of my stairgates were in perfect working order – one wouldn’t open, the spring had gone in another and a couple of the pressure fittings were missing meaning they got dislodged easily.
We have fitted the new Lindam Pressure Gates to the top and bottom of the stairs as Sebby is eager to climb them given half a chance. They were super simple to fit, although we did have to buy an extension for the upstairs gate as the opening is slightly wider.
These have been up a month so far and the kids haven’t been able to dislodge them. They have an easy one-handed open for adults. Isaac (6) can manage to open them but thankfully Eliza (4) can’t. I like the fact they aren’t self closing – it is a feature we have on one gate we have that I thought was excellent initially but it gets annoying when trying ferrying washing up and down the stairs. I am confident that these will see us through until Sebastian no longer needs them.
If you want something a more secure, you they also do Wall Fix Safety Gates – are primarily recommended for use at the top of stairs and feature the ‘tilt and lift’ opening mechanism for one-handed opening. Extendable and removable, these gates are perfect for wider areas. Within the range there is a Single Metal Panel (RRP: £17.49), Extending Metal (RRP
£19.99), Extending Wooden – made from Natural Beech, comes in natural or white colour-scheme (RRP: £30.49), and for the style-conscious parent, there’s the top-of-the-range NUMI Aluminium Extending Safety Gate (RRP: £79.99).
For staying safe at home, the Lindam Home Safety Kit (RRP: £9.99) has everything you need to get you started. Including a door stopper, multi-purpose latch, corner cushions, plug socket covers (both UK and European), appliance latch and safety catches, it’s the ideal solution in a box.
