Kid Rapt Testimonials
I was introduced to the Pop-it lock by my local fire safety department who run a 'home-safety equipment scheme'. They fitted the pop-it lock on our cleaning cupboard, to keep my then 18 month old out and away from the harmful chemicals stored in there. We have been using it for 9 months and find it very sturdy, and easy to use. My daughter is now 2 years old and can reach the cutlery draw, full of an array of sharp utensils. So I ordered another lock directly from Kid Rapt Ltd.
The service was really friendly and amazingly quick, it’s been a long time since I have had such reliable and helpful service. The lock itself was simple to fit, even for me, which is saying a lot! I couldn't recommend them enough.
We are an established low cost child safety equipment scheme and have been dealing with Kid Rapt Ltd for a number of years. We appreciate their professional approach to the services they provide and have always found staff extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Well done Kid Rapt Ltd.

We have just recently purchased some Tiny First Aid Kits for our new Baby Bags and are over the moon with the quality and affordable price of this product, only £2.50 per kit! It has been a pleasure dealing with Penny at Kid Rapt and we will definitely be coming back again to re-order other products in the future.
I have recently purchased some child safety cupboard locks and window locks from your company after finding out about the Pop-It lock.
As a mother of 19 month old mischievous twin girls and a third baby on the way I cannot more highly recommend the style called the Pop-It Cupboard Lock and also the Baby Dan Window Lock. I have tried various other types from different Internet websites and they were hopeless in comparison. The twins even managed to open some of the cupboards with these child locks on them!
Pop It locks are the way forward. They can also be left off at night when the children have gone to bed. A definite must in any house with toddlers!
I have mentioned in the past, but just to say again, I find your emails imperative to running a child accident prevention project. I do not forward the email on to anyone else, however new information together with your website is relayed in my training sessions with professionals.
Keep up the invaluable work.
During the time I have co-ordinated the Staysafe West Lothian Project I have found Kid Rapt to be invaluable. All the staff are helpful and friendly. The safety packs are great value. The monthly newsletters are very informative. And any additional information e.g. sourcing of medicine boxes or safety information on whirligigs/rotary washing lines I've required has always been very thorough and prompt.
Thanks for all your help and support over the years.
Please can I just say a big thank you for the links you have been sending via email – they are extremely useful with lots of information but just as importantly highlights documents that I might otherwise not look at just through lack of time to do the initial research.
If I can give you some background about us. At Sure Start Central we have a team of 7 Family Support Workers that I line manage and we offer all families in SO14 a Home Safety Check BEFORE their babies are mobile usually around 6months.
Using health data we are able to identify babies born in a particular month and we contact them either by phone or calling at the home to arrange a visit. The team will leave a contact card for families to ring in for a check if they are not at home when we call. The team has a monthly target of 20 Home Safety Visits to achieve and is reviewed as a part of our Service Level Agreement. As well as Home Safety the Family Support Workers signpost to other services and remind families of local Sure Start activities.
At this check we follow a basic checklist that identifies a variety of risks within the home; we take some freebies in the form of cupboard catches and door jammers etc..alongside the books “Now I am a Baby I Can” The Health Visitors will also follow up with a Safety Gate referral when the babies are 8 months old and attending their developmental assessments, each year we supply and the City Council fit up to 100 gates.
Parents are able to self refer at any time, Home Safety is regularly promoted at Let’s Play Together & Baby Play sessions All our small equipment is purchased through Kid Rapt and I am regular receipt of the Newsletter. This Newsletter keeps us in touch with the national initiatives and the NICE guidelines that I printed off from your site are integrated into our Home Safety Ofsted evidence file. Other links that are identified through your Newsletter have provoked some interesting discussions in our Management team as there are clear links in what we are trying to achieve here in a Sure Start Children’s Centre sited in the inner city with only 20% of our population being white British – the remaining 20% being from BME communities with many living in accommodation that is inadequate with issues such as overcrowding, poor repairs and HMO’s. Health inequalities are evident in the local community with language being a key barrier to accessing services from a variety of agencies.
I have been provided your details by my local Sure Start centre. I have recently had your cupboard locks fitted to my property via a local scheme when my daugther was five months old as part of a home safety pack which included safety gates, a fireguard and a bath mat. I am very pleased with all the equipment, but to cut a long story short, I now need a replacement plastic round cover for one of the cupboard locks! The cream plastic 'bauble' that attaches to the lock fitting is no longer with us and I fear that if I cannot get a replacement my sanity will not be long after it. I have attempted to use another cupboard lock, but to be fair the ones you guys provide seem to only child safe ones out there as others have led to many a finger trapping injury. I have been to great lengths to obtain one of these (including offering money to a friend who has one!) and would be ecstatically grateful if you can help.Ii have absolutely no problem if there will be a charge for this....I appreciate from your website that you do not generally supply directly to the public but I am in fact literally begging!
Many, many thanks and kind regards, Sarah Ibbetson (and Ruby who may never learn to stay out of the cupboards)
