Child Window Safety (Kid's Can't Fly*)
Protect Your Child From Window Falls
It's that time of year when we open our windows to let fresh air in. Open windows may pose a danger for small children and lead to falls.
Window safety devices such as child safety window guards and window wedges can reduce a child's risk of injury or death related to window falls.
Window screens are designed to keep bugs out and are not strong enough to prevent a child from falling.
Child safety window guards have an emergency release button that allows escape in case of an emergency.
Window guards can be purchased on-line at http://www.angelguards.com/
Window wedges are a window stopper that allows air in,
while preventing children from falling out.
Window wedges can be purchased on-line at http://www.windowwedge.com/
