Doors to garages, basements, and balconies

Problem: Falls from balconies; access to poisons and sharp tools stored in garages, basements, or attics

Solution:

  • If the door is not an emergency exit, install a hook and eye or other locking device above children’s reach.
  • If the door leads to an emergency exit, use a manufactured door knob guard that  prevents young children from opening the door.
