Tippitoes Extending Fireguard,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tippitoes Extending Fireguard (Baby Product)
We bought this for when my son stays at my aunties as she has kindly offered to mind him one day a week whilst I am back at work from maternity leave and so we had to totally baby proof her house. I think she was a bit skeptical at first regarding the design of the guard as when she had one a few years ago for her kids she had one of the oval top design ones that just covered the fire part and not the fire and the hearth as this one does, but once she saw the fireguard assembled she was very happy with it. The guard attaches to the wall using two clips which can be unclipped to pack the guard away when not in use which is obviously what my aunt does when she isn't minding my son so that she can revert the house back to an 'adult zone'. The fireguard extends simply by pulling the two halves to the desired length and then securing them with the screw clips provided which are a lot better to use than the bog standard clips that seem to some with most fireguards. One thing we have had to do is tape some cotton pads to the section of the fireguard that seems to knock against the hearth when my son is deciding to use the guard as a standing aid to stop the hearth being damaged. Very very happy with the guard and would definitely recommend.
