Childproofing service was great.They were able to recommend some wonderful options. Came back promptly when some work needed a second session. And they double checked their work to make sure everything was functioning well. Great experience.

Just an absolute lifesaver. Neal was a pleasure to work with. He knew what he was doing, did it well, worked around nap schedules, and basically just made our lives super easy. Within a few hours, the home was baby-proofed and neither adult nor child was disturbed or disrupted in any way. I would recommend Neal to others in a heartbeat.

I could not recommend Neil Onos and Safe Beginnings Childproofing more!  He listens to what you are looking for, does a walk-through of your house, gives his recommendations, and installs it all in one day.  With my first child, he installed gates for all 3 sets of stairs I have, locks for my kitchen drawers, and anchored heavy book shelves and drawers to the walls.  He returned for a second visit before having my second baby to help rearrange one of my rooms and re-anchor the bookshelf to the wall.  His work gives me the peace of mind that my kids are safe when they are playing!  On top of doing great work, he is very friendly and honest!  I highly recommend Neil and his services.



He is very friendly and does great work!  I highly recommend him and his services!!  It

We hired Neal for the first time in early 2017 when our oldest daughter started crawling. We called him after being referred by a local friend. We had a tricky stairway and Neal fitted the perfect solution! We were so happy with the entire service we called Neal again when purchasing a new home this Fall (2019). Neal squeezed us in right after our move to make sure our girls were safe right from the start. He always finds the best and most economical solution to safety issues….and he locates all the issues! He’s super responsive to texts and emails and always ready to help troubleshoot. Super happy to have this checked off our list and we wouldn’t hesitate to call Neal again or recommend him to a friend!
