What's the difference between 'out of reach of' and 'out of reach for'?

For example,

Keep all sharp object out of reach of children.

The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is out of reach for minimum wage earners.

Thanks in advance!

Hi N2g,

(just gessing) The first one seems to be more literal - out of [the] reach of children (physical reach) Whose reach?

In the second one the use is more figurative. "Out of reach" becomes an expression or an idiom. It describes the condition. It's too expensive. For whom?

Regards, - A.

Keep all sharp object out of reach of children. (Put all sharp objects in a place where children cannot get them.)

The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is out of reach for minimum wage earners. (A minimum wage earner cannot afford to rent a one-bedroom apartment.)

Thanks in advance!
