Sharp Corners


Tables have sharp corners that can cause injury if your child falls into one. Coffee tables especially pose a threat, since babies use these low surfaces to support themselves as they are learning to walk.

Install guards on all tables in your home. Some products are designed to fit on just the corners, and others are designed to wrap around the entire table. If you can't find guards to fit a specific table, consider removing it or moving it to a room your child is never in.
