Child Proof Outdoor & Pool Safety Products to Keep Your Kids Safe

Childproofing your outdoor spaces, backyard, and swimming pool is an important task for homeowners to undertake. According to the CDC, drowning accounts for 30% of deaths in children ages 1-4, installing a DIY pool fence is one of the best things you can do to protect your family and keep your children safe from the risk of accidental drowning.

As soon as your baby becomes mobile, it is time to make sure your house is safe for your kid inside and out. There are a number of outdoor and pool safety products that can be installed and utilized to make your backyard safer for your family, this includes do-it-yourself pool fences, pool gates, rail nets, window and door locks, and gate latches or locks.

It is also important to be mindful of any standing water or full buckets since they can also become drowning hazards. Consider the plants you have in your yard as well since certain varieties like azaleas, daffodils, mistletoe, hyacinths, irises, holly berries, and tulips can be poisonous if ingested.

Below are some safety measures parents, grandparents, and other caretakers can take in their homes to make their backyards and outdoor spaces safer for families to enjoy.

Swimming Pool Safety Tips

The pool can be one of the most fun places in your home, but also the most dangerous. If you own a pool, the first thing you need to do is make sure you install a four-sided pool safety barrier around it with a gate that locks.

DIY Pool Fence with Self-Latching & Self-Closing Pool Gate

Most pool drownings that occur in backyard swimming pools are preventable with a pool safety fence. A DIY pool fence is one of the most effective layers of protection you can implement in your home. Our mesh pool fencing is the safest, strongest pool fence possible, and designed to be simple for parents to install themselves while also being affordable.

Along with your pool fence, it’s also important to install a self-latching, self-closing pool gate. In fact, a pool gate is one of the most essential components of a pool fence system. In order for it to be really safe, the gate must be able to open and close correctly all the time.

The Life Saver Pool Fence pool safety gate is built using a double-truss system which allows for tension variations and minimizes the need for constant adjustments.

In addition to your pool fence and safety gate, other safety products to consider are Omni Hangers and Solar Lights. Omni hangers can be used to keep your safety equipment close by, or for organizational purposes for your cleaning equipment, hoses, or pool towels.  Solar lights are ideal for illuminating your pool fence in the dark allowing you to see into the pool in the evening hours.

Pool Alarms

To add another layer of protection to your backyard and further ensure child pool safety in your home, consider installing an alarm in your pool. Swimming pool alarms will alert you in the event there is a disturbance in the water allowing parents and caretakers to act quickly. You can also use a wearable alarm like Safety Turtle. This is a reliable alarm that is worn as a wristband and will alert you the moment it is submerged. So, whether your child has fallen into the pool or willingly entered the pool you will be alerted.

Child Outdoor Safety Tips for Families

In addition to a pool fence DIY, pool alarms, and pool safety gate you also need to consider general outdoor safety for your child or children. For example, installing door alarms and window alarms to alert you as to whether your child is attempting to or has already left your home can allow you to act quickly and prevent anything from happening.

Installing locks on doors that are out of reach of children is another way to prevent them from going outside on their own. You can also add safety chains to exterior doors that will make it even more difficult for them to open and unlock the door. Window latches or even window barriers will prevent your child from getting into your yard unsupervised and can also prevent a critical injury if the window is on an upper-level floor.

Your backyard should also be enclosed by a fence with a self-closing and self-latching gate and set boundaries for where your children are allowed to play. For added peace of mind, you can place a Safety tattoo on your children if they have a history of wandering away or escaping your backyard.

Also, keep in mind that no security measure is as important as constant adult supervision. Children can’t always recognize dangerous situations, and in the event, an accident does occur, the adult in charge can respond to the injured child immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What Safety Rules Should I Establish in My Home?
A: Some safety rules to consider include no chasing, pushing, or roughhousing while playing on slides or play equipment. No standing on swings or jumping off high platforms. Bikes and other play equipment should be stored properly, and certain areas should be off-limits (and locked!) including garages, sheds, and equipment storage bins.

Q: What Possible Safety Hazards Am I Missing?
A: Regularly survey your yard for potential dangers. This means picking up items like garden tools, ladders, hoses, and chemicals before they go outside to play. These items should be stored in a secure place that can’t be accessed by your child or their friends. Keep an eye out for natural hazards, like holes, tree limbs, thorns, and insect nests.
