We want the best for our kids…but we are often protecting them with solutions that were developed decades ago, don’t always work, are easily circumvented, difficult to use and that keep stress and danger levels high.
To install the Guardian Angel Safety Outlet, simply follow a few short steps: Remove the casing from the existing outlet. Insert the Guardian Angel Safety Outlet over the wall outlet. Make sure the screws are tight. Plug in your device and you are ready to go!
As parents, we want both safety and usability … a combination currently unavailable in outlet protection. We want and need safer and easier alternatives to use throughout our homes.
Thousands of kids require emergency room treatment every year – despite widespread use of existing safety measures. Beyond obvious burns and scarring, the electrical shock can pose hidden dangers to the nervous system, heart, and brain. It’s dangers like these that claim hundreds of children’s lives per year.
Plastic inserts oftentimes are not enough, as these inserts pose a significant choking hazard. Kids can easily remove those inserts, often in less than 10 seconds. Even if a parent is around keeping a watchful eye, that is enough time for a child to remove the insert and severely hurt themselves.
A better solution is needed. A solution that helps you keep your children safe from this extremely dangerous household hazard. Enter the Guardian Angel Safety Outlet.
The Guardian Angel technology is always on – using capacitive sensing to continuously monitor the electrical receptacle’s immediate surroundings for dangerous actions or situations – ensuring a child is safe.
Electrodes in the outlet housing allow the circuit to see beyond its plastic walls and distinguish a dangerous object from an acceptable plug. The outlet uses proprietary technology that is aware when your little one’s hand gets too close. Plastic inserts simply do not provide an acceptable level of protection, too many children are injured via electric shock each year, even when plastic inserts are in use! The Guardian Angel Safety Outlet eliminates these hazards and allows you the peace of mind knowing your child is safe.
During one terrible week last June, four children in the Portland area were injured when they plunged through windows to the ground.
And while about 50 young children fall from windows every year in Oregon, such accidents happen far less frequently than they once did, according to data from the Oregon Trauma Registry. Rates of children’s window falls decreased by 46 percent from 2009 to 2011.
The drop may be linked to the Stop at 4 Inches campaign, a safety effort referring to using window stops to keep children from opening windows wider than 4 inches. Safe Kids Oregon, the Oregon Public Health Division and Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel sponsor the campaign, which is in full gear during National Window Safety Week, April 7-13
A tiny children’s toy looks like fun, but it’s potentially dangerous in the hands of small children. They are balls and beads that expand in water. You may have seen them on TV. Consumer Reports partnered exclusively with 7 On Your Side to check out just how hazardous these toys can be.
They may be colorful and alluring, but Consumer Reports says there’s a potential safety hazard with the popular toys. There’s been one recall, but many more of the super-absorbent polymer balls are still on the market.
Ford is recalling about 6,500 vehicles to fix a child safety lock defect. The recall covers Ford Focus, C-Max and Fusion models from the 2013 model year.
The vehicles in question may have been fitted with a faulty child safety lock on the left side rear door, which could allow the door to be accidentally opened.
“The child lock may not engage when the operator uses normal turning force to activate the child lock, and the operator may incorrectly believe the child lock is engaged,” Ford told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to The Detroit News.
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
“Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of danger and fear.”
“Behold the future of humanity.”
