When then 10-year old Tharon Trujillo saw his 7-month old sister push through the screen of the family home's sliding glass door, he questioned if there was a safety gate to prevent it, or worse incidents, from happening.

The baby products industry recognized Trujillo's achievement and he was awarded one of the Juvenile Product's Manufacturer's Association Innovation Awards last year.
