Setting a Higher Standard in Safety

Our locks pass the toddler test 

Anyone who has had a toddler grab hold of their hair can attest to how strong they can be for such tiny beings. Safety 1st locks have been real world tested and are shown to withstand the pull of even the most determined toddlers*.

How strong are toddlers? 

Stronger than you think. Studies show some toddlers can pull with a force up to 41.5 lbs**. That’s why Safety 1st locks have been lab tested using a pull force that exceeds what most toddlers can pull. In mechanical testing, select Safety 1st locks have shown to outperform the competition.*

Leading the way in home safety
