Our family has learned first hand the importance of babyproofing. Prior to Max’s accident, childproofing was something I did on a “well do it when we need to” basis. Basically meaning, I would wait until we were in a near-accident situation before actually taking the plunge to get it done.
Many childproof products are ugly and troublesome to install and, as a military family that moves often we are not in a position to screw and hammer into every cabinet we encounter.
Rhoost has answered many of these concerns with a brand of products that provide “smarter childproofing.” Created by parents, the company’s mission is “to provide parents with the products and knowledge they need to maintain a safe, fun and worry-free home.”
Here’s how Rhoost products work smarter so you don’t have to work harder:
- Easy to install and use, and don’t require adhesives or screws (your furniture will thank us)
- Portable and can go with you to grandma’s house or on vacation
- Simple to replace, if removed
- Come in colors that complement your home décor, and blend well with any furniture
- Non-toxic (BPA, Lead, PVC, Phthalates, and Cadmium) and 100% recyclable
- Free of flame retardants and foam chemicals
Rhoost Products in the Home
Rhoost childproofing collection includes 5 products: Blind Cord Winder, Cabinet Closure, Finger Guard, Safety Outlet Cover and Table Corner Guard. We’ve incorporated several of these into our home.
The Finger Guard is a super simple and sleek design that will leave you wondering why you haven’t had one like it for year. Simply hang the Finger Guard over a hinge of your door and it prevents the door from slamming shut on small fingers.
We’ve also found it’s perfect for summer in Germany. With no A/C we have to leave windows open, but the draft often makes the interior doors slam shut. Not good when the baby’s napping! The Finger Guard keeps the doors open safely, even with the draft.
Rhoost’s take on one of the most popular and necessary babyprooofing items, the Cabinet Closure, was designed from scratch. It requires no screws and loops through cabinet handles so there is no damage at all to furniture.
We’ve been using the Cabinet Closure on a cabinet that houses my husband’s computer and our printer. It’s been, of course, Max’s favorite place to explore, but it’s simply not safe – for him or the electronics. The design is simple and, in theory, easy to use. In practice, it’s not as smooth. It’s pretty difficult to get the pieces to unlock and lock. While it’s great for preventing unwanted little intruders, it takes me more time (and frustration) than it should to get it to latch and unlatch. I’m hoping with more use, it will loosen up a bit.
