Child Safety Device Invented for Bathtubs by InventHelp Inventor (AUP-820)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Baby Bath Knob Protector, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Nothing can replace adult supervision and vigilance for keeping babies and young children safe in the bathtub. However, two inventors from Devine, Texas, have come up with an idea designed to reduce the chances of mishaps at bath time.

They developed a prototype for the patent-pending BABY BATH KNOB PROTECTOR to prevent young children from turning bathtub faucets. As such, it protects children against hot water burns and drowning in the bathtub and reduces the chances of overflowing bathtubs and incurring water damage. It, thus, affords peace of mind for concerned parents and is convenient, effective and affordably priced. This novel device is also lightweight, portable and great for travel. In addition, it is easy to apply, remove and store.

The inventors’ personal experience inspired the idea. “I was concerned about the safety of my one- to three-year-old sons in the bathtub and wanted to make sure they could not reach up and turn the faucets and scald themselves or add too much water,” one of them said.

The original design was submitted to the Austin office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
