Stop-it! Driveway Safety Net Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
My three young children love to play with their friends in our driveway and keeping them safe is our top priority. Despite us talking to them repeatedly about playing safely and staying out of the road, someone inevitably tries to chase or ball or ride their scooter into the road. I am well aware that in the blink of an eye our lives could be changed forever if one of these precious children are hit by an oncoming vehicle. Therefore, I am always searching for additional measures to make outside playtime fun and safe.
The Stop-it! driveway net is a brilliant and innovative idea which creates a boundary which helps remind children not to run out onto the street. How does it work? It is a retractable net that is easy to use, functional and most importantly, it really worked with my children and their friends to stop them from running after a ball when it bounced onto the road. It is designed for use with most outdoor activities such as basketball, hockey, bouncing the ball, tag, riding the scooter, bikes and more.
I simply place the Stop-it! driveway net at the end of our driveway (or other area where I want to create a boundary) and pull the net across the designated area. My husband and I were initially a bit skeptical, mistakenly thinking that this would be a bulky product that is difficult to set up and that we would ultimately use on rare occasions if at all. Instead, we were pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it is to use because it is portable and retractable. There is no assembly required and it is very easy to set up and just as simple to take down until the next use. The vibrant, red color of the net itself makes it very easy for the kids (and oncoming traffic) to see and it worked to keep them out of the road. I also love that we noticed several cars actually slowed down when they saw the night giving additional peace of mind that the cars were more mindful of children playing in the neighborhood. Speeding cars has been a big problem in our area over the past year and this is a great way to provide that additional protection to keep my children safe.
Overall, I am very pleased with the concept and the results we have seen from using the Stop-it! driveway net. I highly recommend this product for all parents of young children to help remind them not to run out into the street placing them at great risk for severe injuries or even death if they accidently collide with a car.
