In search of integrated cabinet/drawer locks or clever solutions
Because I have a special needs child we will always need some kind of cabinet/drawer locking mechanism on certain 'high risk' cabinets, such as the garbage pullout and the knife drawer.
We currently use the standard kind of child proofing plastic type cabinet/drawer latches but those wreck havoc on the frames with repeated use. I don't even know if they would work on frameless cabs which is what I want. Even if they did, I would like to come up with a more integrated solution for these spots, something that won't damage any of the wood or scratch the finish.
Even something like a simple hardware latch may do the trick, but those are generally used on cabinet uppers not drawers/pullouts. like this one: http://www.thehardwarehut.com/catalog-product.php?p_ref=1555
but i'm not 100% sure it would deter him.
Any ideas or non standard solutions that would integrate nicely into cabinetry?
