Product Spotlight: Safety 1st Press 'n Pivot Latches

Cabinet drawers and doors seem to be just hungry for little fingers. Unfortunately, as many parents know, little kids are just as happy to feed these pinching pieces of furniture! Don’t fret, there is help. Today we’ll be spotlighting one of our most useful products, Safety 1st Press ‘n Pivot latches.

Why Worry About Cabinets?

Let’s face it, little kids love to get into mischief. More than that, they love to explore places that seem forbidden. As we detailed in our post about cabinet safety, this definitely includes cabinets. After all, cabinets are where all the mysterious medicines and chemicals are locked up. These must seem like a goldmine to crawling babies and toddlers.

Now, not all cabinets are created equally. On the one hand, some can just contain food or other harmless items. But as we hinted at earlier, others can be much more hazardous to a little one’s health.

Many of these cabinets and drawers often hide far more dangerous household objects, including poisonous cleaning chemicals or sharp kitchen knives. Even without the hazardous chemicals and dangerous items, cabinet doors can close tightly on little fingers. Keeping this in mind, all parents and guardians should take cabinet safety seriously. That’s where Safety 1st Press ‘n Pivot latches come in handy.
