Protect A Child Client Testimonials
I want to thank you for the excellent job in installing the fence around my pool. Your installers showed up on time (which is unusual in today's business enviroment), drilled clean holes in my pool deck and put the fence in an expeditious manner. The pool area was also left in a clean manner. Ron D March 25, 1991
Thank you very much for adding the additional fencing to go around the slide that we just added to our pool. The fence looks great and surely gives us the peace of mind of not having to worry about our baby girl Hilary, falling into the pool. I think your product is first rate, your installation of the fence perfect and your installer and yourself very pleasant and easy with which to work. Zachary S March 13, 1986
We recently purchased a Protect-A-Child fence for our backyard. We live in Foster City, Cailifornia, where our home sits on a lagoon fed in part by the San Francisco Bay. The fence is to protect our 21-month old daughter and our German Shepherd from falling into the water. We are writing to tell you how pleased we are with the fence and the individuals we worked with to purchase and install the fence. Everyone we talked to was knowledgeable and helpful. The installers were professional, skilled and did an excellent job installing and demonstrating the functionality of the fence. They were a pleasure to work with. We are thrilled with the appearance, durability and effectiveness of the fence and can breathe easier knowing that our two and four legged children are safe in our backyard. We have received several positive comments from our neighbors and have shared your company’s name with other families in the San Francisco Bay Area. Daniel & Holly McKelvey April 10, 2001

Just wanted to let you know how pleased my wife and I are with the professional service, and quality product that your company provided us with for our home. We would not hesitate in referring your company to our feiends. Thank you. It's always great to find such good people to deal with. Kenneth S 02/15/89
Wanted to say “thank you” and let you know how pleased I am with you company. Being a first time mom I did not know anything about safety fences. So of course I had several estimates. At the time I thought gee- same price, same warranties- what’s the difference the way the poles and screws are made- ok I could live with that. However, from your very first visit to my house I had a good feeling about your company. My gut feeling was right because it truly has been a pleasure to deal with you. It is so refreshing to find a company that takes pride in their work. You all are reliable, dependable, punctual, and great to work with. Thank you for everything.
Hi Barry, It's been a while, I hope you remember me. My dog fencing around my home is still looking fantastic and is holding up very well. I am referring one of my friends, Marilyn, to you. She needs fencing around her swimming pool, and she lives in Oceanside.
We just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on our pool fence. It's been almost a year and it still looks great! My wife and I feel secure that our 2 year old daughter and her new little sister will be safe when playing in the back yard. I really like how easy it was to remove the fence when we had a BBQ-swimming party for the adults and how quickly I could re-install it the next day. I was apprehensive about a pool fence at first; thinking that it would take away from the aesthetics of the yard, however, this fence looks nice and I wouldn't hesitate to put up another at our next house. If you would like some photos to show potential clients let me know. Thanks again. The Natividad Family.
Soon after my wife and I built our dream house and pool, our daughter, who lives in Dallas, blessed us with two cherished grandchildren. When they planned to come to Little Rock to visit us for a week, it dawned on me that I did not have a reliable safety product for our pool. I had tried the alarm systems but wasn't satisfied. I searched the web and found Protect-A-Child pool fences. After watching the video I was convinced. Within days after our call, we had our fence - and the best peace of mind we could get! Also, the fence has an added bonus: Our grown son likes to bring his friends over for pool volleyball. The games were often interrupted by someone having to get out of the pool to retrieve the ball. With our Protect-A-Child fence, however, the ball almost always bounced back to the pool or was within easy reach! WE LOVE OUR PROTECT-A-CHILD FENCE!!!!!!!

Dear Protect-A-Child: I wanted to let you know our story in hopes that it might prevent tragedy for other parents. Although we had a happy ending, it was too close. We have a pool that came with the house we bought. It is screened in and our house came with door alarms. We have a 3 year old, and she is NEVER left alone. We thought that our pool was safe because all the locks were high on the doors, the alarm was there, it was screened in, and I am a very protective mom. I also thought that if my daughter fell in the pool of course there had to be a splash and I would hear it. Well approximately 6 weeks ago, it was a beautiful Florida day. I had all of the doors and windows open, and my daughter was outside playing in the backyard with our 2 dogs. Next thing I know she was on the pool deck inside the screen enclosure. She had gotten in through the bottom of the screen door where the screening had been knocked out probably a couple of days before. I was inside standing at my kitchen bar and said to myself, “Well she’s OK for just a minute.” I thought I would finish what I was doing and then go get her. I checked on her and she was laughing and playing with her beach toys and was fine. Next thing I know, I hadn't heard her for a second. I look out and the toy that I had just seen her playing with was floating down the side of the pool with the current of the water. I ran out the glass door to see my daughter struggling to get above the water. She had on jeans, a long sleeve shirt and boots. She was sinking straight to the bottom and I never heard a peep. Not a splash of water or sound out of her mouth. And I was less than 5 feet away! I pulled her out by her pinky. Water poured from her nose and mouth. After I got all the water out of her and she was finally breathing again, my almost 3 year old looked up at me and said, "Mommy I just want to breathe." Fortunately, she is fine. I tell you this as a mom that was terrified that my child could have drowned that day. A few seconds more and I may not have her. The next morning a Protect-A-Child Pool Fence went up at our house knowing that if it had been up the day before, my child would have never had to go through this horrible experience. We thought our pool was safe. Now I know that it was not. No pool is safe. But at least I know now that my daughter cannot get back to the pool and I think that if I can tell my story to at least one person and have it save a toddlers life, I would know that my daughter and I experienced that day for a reason. I TRULY believe in this product and know that these fences are not only installed for a house to meet the code for inspection, but it really is for the safety of our children. Hope all is well! Carisa, Chris, and Skylar Deland, FL Thanks Carissa for your story. It is without a doubt chilling and we hope will speak to parents everywhere. We hope everyone reading this will realize that it CAN HAPPEN TO YOU! The drowning statistics are so high because too many people think it won’t happen to them! Please. Don’t wait. You might not get that second chance. Take steps to safeguard your child today!

"Good fences, safer pools Supervising our little ones around water is essential. Often overlooked is what happens when a toddler escapes out the back door while you are visiting a neighbor or grandparent who has a pool. A fence around the pool is not a substitute for proper supervision, but it could buy you life-saving seconds when little Bobby sneaks out to pretend he is Nemo. If you have a backyard pool, it should be fenced in, even if there are no kids living in your house. After researching different pool fence systems, we installed the Protect-A-Child pool fence. It serves as an excellent deterrent, was quick and easy to have installed and is actually removable (although I would recommend keeping it up at all times). If you know someone who needs a pool fence, but may not know it, ask them to visit www.protectachild.com. " Goleta Valley Voice newspaper

Just wanted to let you know that the fence is awesome, and David was great. The fence looks fantastic, everything was cleaned up nicely before he left, and he explained everything and answered all my questions. I wish all contractors could be so pleasant.
"I don't normally endorse products but we had one of your fences installed 3 years ago around our pool. During hurricane Wilma last month, our entire pool enclosure was destroyed. When it fell, one entire end of the enclosure was resting on one end of the protect-a-child fence. Your fence was not damaged at all. Thank you for making such a sturdy product. We have some pictures of it if you'd like to see them.

"I wanted to share a story about your fence. My wife and I put one of your fiberglass pole fences across our driveway to keep debris out and our dogs away from our alley. We usually park behind the fence. Well my wife decided to back in for groceries and I think got a little distracted (Ha Ha). She backed over our fence with the suburban, with a loud CRACK. I was very nice (Ha Ha again) and told her to please pull forward. I was surprised to see the fence stand back up looking undamaged and still providing safety for our dogs. With closer inspection the pole she went over was broken but didn't break off! It still provided the safety we were looking for! Had the fence fallen down, who knows if our dogs had run into the alley at that time, a car may have hit them? We love our fence Thank You."

Hi! Hope you're doing well. We love the baby fence and ease of use! We've had so much peace of mind since it was installed, I can't thank you enough!" Thanks! One satisfied customer!
"I gotta say, you build a really durable and worthwhile product. Here's a little story of my fence and proof of your durable product. I purchased your Protect-A-Child pool fencing back in the winter of 1987. I had about 25 feet of it installed to separate the pool from the backdoors at a patio of a house I was having built and was about to move into.It was installed so I could meet Code, obtain a C.O., and to protect my 1 year old child from getting to the pool, unsupervised. About the time she was 5 and could swim like a fish, I took the fence down, rolled it up like a tent, wrapped rope around it and set it inside an outdoor fenced area. It was fully exposed to the weather for its entire life. Now that daughter of mine is about to enter college. How time flies. It was 18 years ago that I had your fence installed. My wife now has a grandchild who is 17 months old and visits occasionally. With all of the publicity about Jack Nicklaus' grandchild last week and the hot tub incident, it made me realize that I needed to get a fence back up to separate the pool from the doors out of the house, like I did 18 years ago for my daughter. So, I unrolled your Protect-A-Child fence, scooped out the dirt that had filled in all of the fence holes in the pool deck, and stuck the fence posts back into those holes. I had to do some real pulling on the fabric to stretch it out to fit the same holes but I was quite amazed that the fabric could take a real tugging and without being dry rotted from being exposed to the weather for all of those years and didn't tear or rip at all, anywhere. I sprayed the fabric down to get the dirt off of it and it looks as good as the day you installed it back in the winter of 1987. Nice to see that any manufacturer makes a product that is really made to last. Thank you for that."
