    Outsmarted by baby, how to baby proof cords?

    I had GAFFA TAPED the tv/foxtel cords both to the wall and the lino, yet my baby managed to rip up the lino and rip the cords off the wall, of course the gaffa tape took off the paint! he constantly outsmarts me, what else can i do??

    you can buy cord clips in bunnings - huge bucket of them - cord slips inside, you nail to the skirting board, no bubba can pull them off - hell, even adults struggle!

    we don't have skirting boards unfortunately (new house), they don't seem to put them in modern houses anymore, we plan to get them eventually but not for a while.

    Previous to the gaffa tape, i had the 3m cord hooks along the bottom of the wall, little bugger pulled those off too.

    you should be able to nail these things into anything - in our room the power points are in the worst place, so we had to run an extension lead along the floor, over the door and back down along the floor and they are awesome.
