One overlooked hazard that needs to be child proof is the patio door. This is one of the favorite "break out" spots for
children. The closing mechanism is usually a latch, not a lock. This means that it is easier for children to operate than it is for adults to secure. Child proof patio door locks are a must to make sure that children remain safely inside the home. Just a short time unattended and your child can move a hassock in place and climb up and let themselves out to "go play". We have all heard the horror stories of how this incident can end. Those homes that are adjacent to a road or other hazards, have all the more reason to secure their home with patio door locks. If you have more than one child working together, you would be amazed at the trouble that they can get into.
