We purchased these fireplace guards about a year ago, and have been very pleased with how they have stayed in place, because that was our biggest concern. We worried that our son would crawl over to them and pull on them and that they would simply fall off, but they haven't. It takes a little cutting to get them to fit your specific fireplace, but it doesn't look patched together. Our fireplace is about a foot off of the living room floor, so as children are learning to walk and even crawling, it is a potential hazard for them falling and hitting those hard brick corners and edges. We have been very pleased and would recommend them to anyone with a fireplace or any edges that are a hazard to your baby or toddler. I think the corner guards would also work really well for a coffee table or a kitchen island, when your child is tall enough that his/her head is even with an island counter top.
