SeniorSafetyAdvice is proud to partner with RangeSafe, LLC to recommend and promote their RangeSafe Safety Knobs™.
These gas stove safety knobs are very stylish, easy to install and to operate. We reviewed these knobs and were very impressed by their quality and functionality.
The purpose of the RangeSafe Safety Knobs™ is to help keep a gas stove from being turned on accidentally which can easily happen as you will see in the video for the RangeSafe Deluxe Knob for Pro-Style ranges below.
Of course, accidents can happen to anyone but the likelihood of accidentally turning on a gas stove increases if the household has older adults, children and/or pets.
In our opinion, the low cost of these knobs are a very small price to pay to ensure the safety of your home, yourself and/or your family.
How Do RangeSafe Safety Knobs™ Compare To Other Gas Range Safety Knobs?
There are basically 3 different types of gas range safety knob products on the market today:
1. Attachments to existing knobs (like a clip) to prevent the knob from being turned.
These work fine but the disadvantages are that they don’t look so great and in order to use the stove you need to remove the clip and of course, remember to put it back on. There are a variety of these type of “add ons”. Some are clips, some are attached behind the existing knob and another one is a bar attached to the front of the stove securing the individual knobs.
2. Stove knob covers
There are clear plastic covers that can be placed over the existing knobs and although these may seem to work well, they often don’t fit well lending them to dangle from the stove knob and again – they don’t look so great.
3. Replacement knobs
The third type of products available are knobs to replace the gas range’s existing knobs and that is what the RangeSafe Safety Knobs™ are. They take the place of your existing knobs so there are no external pieces involved and they are stylish enough that they will look as if they were the original knobs that came with the gas stove.
By simply pinching the two sides of the knob together – you will then be able to turn and the gas stove safely. It is a simple and elegant product that is very effective.
