Clippasafe Corner Cushions
Advantages: can reduce the risk of accidents
Disadvantages: Came unstuck from the furniture very easily
These Clippasafe corner cushions were part of a large bundle of safety products my mother bought for us when our son started to cruise the furniture over a year ago. The purpose of these is too stopping little heads and eyes being bruised or pierced by a fall or knock on the corner of furniture.
The Clippasafe corners come in a pack of four clear plastic corners with some adhesives pads to stick these on to the furniture. The pack tells you that these can also be screwed on to corners as well but this wasn't a method we wanted to use at it would damage the furniture.
We had been given several packs of these so choose to adhere them to the wooden corner unit for the television, the pine blanket box in the living room and a pine hi-fi cabinet. As both the box and the hi-fi unit were pine these had a grainy texture to them. The TV cabinet was wood veneer hence it was a smooth surface. Adhering these to the surfaces was straight forward and easy to do. You pulled away the backing from one side of the adhesive strip and placed this on the underside of the cushioned corner and then took the other backing strip off and place the corners on the furniture applying a little pressure to get them to stick in place. Initially these stuck well to both type of surfaces. However by the end of the first week they had come loose on the wooden furniture as the adhesive strip seemed to come unstuck from the grainy surface of the wood. The ones on the smooth surface of the TV unit stayed in placed. Over the course of the first month we kept reapplying them to the wooden blanket box and hi-fi unit but each time they would unstuck either in minutes or by the end of a day so in the end we just gave up putting them back on. The ones on the TV cabinet remained in place till my son was cruising more effectively then these actually became a target for him as he would stand there and try to peel these off. Each time he un-peeled them he would then try to put them in his mouth like a forbidden sweetie so in the end we gave up with these too as I didn't like him chewing on the plastic. We decided that he we would watch him around the furniture and risk the occasional lump and bruise of he fell. Even with out these on we haven't needed a trip to casualty with our son for a bruise or a lump.
Overall I wouldn't really recommended these as the adhesive never seem to keep them in place on grainy wooden furniture and on smooth veneered furniture they were peeled off by our toddler. As they cost about £2 for a pack it could be worth a try but we haven't missed them. The idea that they can be screwed into your furniture whilst good in theory practically wasn't an option for us as we didn't want to ruin our furniture by making unsightly holes in it.
Summary: These came unstuck very easily and became a target for my son to peel them off not recommended
