Corner and Edge Bumpers

Corner and edge bumpers should be a part of every parent's safety arsenal if there are young children in the house. Every house has pointed corners, such as on counter tops, and sharp edges that pose a potential danger to young children. 

These simple plastic devices can be used on furniture, countertops, and fireplace hearths to help prevent injuries from falls or to soften falls against sharp or rough edges. 

In selecting corner and edge bumpers, look for 

  • Bumpers that stay securely on furniture or hearth edges 
  • Bumpers that fit the way the manufacture designed the product to fit 
  • Be sure the bumpers are properly installed
