  • Do bed rails guarantee my child’s safety while they’re asleep?

    Answer
    No. Bed rails help reduce potential dangers, but it’s up to parents to make sure children are safe. You need to:
    • make sure the bed rail is installed correctly
    • check it regularly
    • replace it if it gets damaged or worn
    • be careful not to trap a child’s fingers or limbs when you’re locking or unlocking the bed rail
  • When will my child be ready for a bed without rails?

    Answer
    As soon as your child can climb in and out of their bed without difficulty, it is okay to remove the bed rail(s).  For most children, this occurs around 3 years. It is perfectly fine to keep the bed rail on, event though your child can climb in and out of bed. When you do remove the bed rail(s), place some pillows or blankets on the floor beside your child's bed to cushion any accidental falls.
  • Do I need more than one bed rail?

    Answer
    Safety 1st recommends the use of two bed rails. A child's bed should never be pushed up against a wall and should be at least 9 inches away from the wall. If following these guidelines, a second bed rail can be used on the opposite side of the bed.
  • Where should I install a bed rail on the bed?

    Answer
    Position your bed rail with one end even to your child's shoulder when they are lying down. There should always be at least a 9 inches of space between the bed rail and both the headboard and the footboard.
  • Will my child be able to unlock the bed rail?

    Answer
    Our safety rails are designed to provide maximum safety for children from 18 months to 5 years, and to avoid the possibility of the child unlocking them. However, you’ll need to keep an eye on your child and make sure they don’t play with the bed rail.
  • What are bed rails for?

    Answer
    Bed rails stop your child from falling out of bed. They are useful when your child moves from a cot into a bed, which usually happens at around the age of 18 months. They are only suitable for children who can get off the bed without help.
  • I’ve been offered a second-hand bed rail. Should I use it?

    Answer
    We don’t recommend it. This is because you don’t know how the bed rail has been used in the past, and whether it has been damaged. Never use a bed rail that’s damaged or has parts missing.
