When you have children, safety should be your number one priority. You can child-proof your doors, stairways, and kitchen cabinets regardless of whether you are expecting your first child, or have several.
There’s no doubt that little ones will find ways to get in trouble. As a parent, however, you want your home to be as safe as possible. We have listed a few tips to protect your children’s kitchen cabinets.
To childproof your kitchen cabinets, you can use an adhesive magnetic lock. It takes only a few minutes to install but offers a lot of safety features.
The magnetic locks are stuck to your cabinet interiors and can only be opened by someone holding a small magnetic key. Your child won’t be able to open the safety magnet hardware unless you have that key.
Locks with Latches
Latch locks are a popular choice that you can attach to your drawers or cabinets. Attach a piece of special plastic to the top of the drawers or cabinets and the hook locks will secure.
The latches will catch on and the drawers or cabinets won’t open if they are caught on. This is especially true for a small child.
Adjustable Safety Locks
Safety locks are a simpler option for children-proofing kitchen cabinets. A single-lock provides a comprehensive solution that can be used to secure multiple cabinets at once. This option will provide you with two plastic anchors that can be placed around the cabinets on both sides.
A plastic strip will be included in the package to attach in the middle. Attach the safety lock to one side of the cabinet and the other to the counter. Pull the straps tight enough to close the cabinets.
