Product Spotlight: KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock

Today on our Child Safety Blog, we would like to bring your attention to one of our popular safety products, the KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock. We have covered many different products on this blog, but every once in a while we like to highlight one that our customers particularly love and enjoy.

In this post, we will be doing a deep dive into the features and benefits of the KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock.

Door Safety

As all parents know, young children are naturally drawn to sticking their hands in between the door and wall. For reasons like this one, parents and guardians of young children need to find ways to make their home safe for their little ones.

It’s understandable: a child is innately curious and adventurous. Unfortunately, their curiosity often leads to painful experiences. In this case, doors that are not properly protected can lead to pinched fingers and tears. To learn more, read our full post about pinch guards.

Now, this danger may seem like a “no-brainer” to an older child or adult, but little ones often don’t have this filter. It's important to be mindful of this, as it is a common occurrence for children to get their fingers caught in doors.

The danger of a child slipping through an unprotected door doesn't just stop at finger injuries. If a child manages to sneak by, it could potentially lead to more severe consequences such as the child falling down a flight of stairs or accessing dangerous items like cleaning chemicals. When it comes to traditional doors, a knob cover can be a tremendous help. Of course, this leads to the next question: what if you have a different type of door?

This brings us to our product spotlight: the KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock. If you have bi-fold doors, it's essential to add an extra layer of protection that can prevent your children from accessing dangerous areas of your home. In these situations, an extra layer of protection, like the KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock, can do wonders.

In a nutshell, bi-fold doors can be a hazard to young children. If they accidentally slip their fingers between the panels, it could cause serious injury. The KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock is a simple solution to this problem. It's easy to install and fits seamlessly into the style of your door without damaging the look of the room. The material is strong and durable, so it can withstand years of use without breaking.

To install the KidCo Bi-Fold Door Lock, simply open the door panel, slide the lock into place over the two panels, and then close the door. Regular checks should be made to ensure that the lock is still functional and hasn't been tampered with. When children grow older and no longer pose a risk, it's time to remove the childproof door locks and teach them about the dangers of playing with and near doors.
