Babyproofing - Metal Window Knobs

Mindy - posted on 05/01/2009 ( 3 moms have responded )




Does anyone have advice on covering or otherwise altering those metal window knobs (you crank them to open/close the window)? We have several at my baby's level and she is obsessed with sucking on them! I tried removing the knob from the plate, but then she sucks on the plate part which has grease on it. I then tried covering the plate with duct tape only to realize that duct tape probably has all sorts of chemicals in it. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

I have the same kind of window. I place end tables on two of the windows and the others windows we purchased a new handle that's folds up and closed into them selves, but they are about $10.00 to $15.00 each window. Go to your local window store. The price is in Canadian dollar in BC. I am not sure if you can get them on-line just Google the name of your window and look for hardware for window.

She sound like my little man into everything.

Good luck let me know if you find some.
