    Summary: The time had come, and babyproofing was at hand. If you have kids, you know the signs. Our son was becoming more mobile by what seemed like the hour, the word "no" seemed to hover in the air, and we began to actually be afraid of what trouble he was ... read more

    Cons: Installation instructions are unclear, a bit hard to clean, must be hard toilet seat

    Summary: One of the first things I bought when childproofing were toilet locks. Toilet locks, you ask? There is nothing more alluring to a toddler than the toilet bowl and nothing more disgusting to a mom. My son discovered the joys of the toilet bowl at ... read more

    Summary: *** ALERT - Toilets pose a real danger! *** As babies grow, their heads practically double in size from birth to 1 year to accommodate their rapidly growing brains. Their little bodies, however, do not grow so quickly, leaving the little guys ... read more

    Summary: We bought one of these a few years ago when our son was 1 and going through an "exploring" phase. He would come in the bathroom with us and try floating his ships in the "sea". Closing the lid helped until he learned how to pick it up. We then decided it ... read more

    Pros: Effective if glue holds
    Cons: Depends on glue = no margin for error Hard to clean

    Summary: This lock relies on adhesive, and unless you install it perfectly the first time, the adhesive will no longer stick. Not to mention that if you have an older toilet, the adhesive may not contact much of the surface at all. I would recommend using a lock ... read more

    Pros: It works.
    Cons: Hard to operate, requires two hands.

  • Might as well flush $5 down the toilet

    Feb 1, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: good idea
    Cons: doesn't work on toilets with sloped edges, don't rely on sticky tape for safety devices

    Summary: Unless your toilet bowl has nice, flat sides do not bother with this device. The slightest curve in the bowl will cause the end that sticks to the bowl to lean inward and the latch will not catch. Also, be sure to place the tape correctly the first time ... read more
