Can You Recommend Cabinet Locks?

mpp798May 11, 2008

Our twelve month old twin grandchildren get into everything. We just moved into a new home. I want to put locks on all the kitchen cabinets so they can't open them. Can you recommend a really good kind that will not damage the cupboards. I do not want to drill holes. I haven't been able to find any reviews on the internet, only adds. Thank you.

Look in your local hardware store. We bought those hook latches in nylon like plastic. You attach them inside the cabinet doors and you do screw them into the inside of the doors and drawers.

THE ONES WE USED ARE BY SAFTEY FIRST OR THE FIRST YEARS I CAN'T REMENBER WHICH AND DID GET SCREWED IN BUT TO THE BACKSIDE OF THE CABNIT AND THEY WERE MAGNETIC.THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF LOCKS WHEN YOU LOOKED AT THE CABNITS! THESE WOULD ONLY BE GOOD IF YOU HAD THE CHILDREN ALOT BECAUSE YOU USE A MAGNET TO OPEN THEM (NOT VERY CONVENIENT). WE KEPT THE MAGNET ON THE SIDE OF FRIDGE AND A SPOT ON THE WINDOWSILL THAT HAD METAL. WE LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY DID NOT OPEN AT ALL SO NO FINGER PINCHING. THE STRAP KIND LET THE DOOR OPEN SLIGHTLY AND THEIR FINGERS CAN GET IN THERE.

I got mine from Target. I believe they were safety first brand. There are a few different options depending on your cabinets. I would experiment with those. They are fairly cheap to purchase.

I saw those magnet locks once but can't remember where. Can you tell me what store you got them or if you can order them online? I think they are great.
