Checklist Child Locks For Cabinets

Necessity
  • Cabinets can contain dangerous items, also things that can break quickly.
  • Your child can get stuck in cabinet doors and suffer injuries.
  • Cleaning out cabinets can keep babies and toddlers busy all day, even if you forbid it. While your child will have a lot of fun, you will have to constantly watch and clean up.
  • Even if you never let your child play and crawl alone. There is always an unobserved moment at some point when the little ones suddenly do something they are not really allowed to do.
Designs
  • Invisible from the outside, glued or screwed from the inside.
  • Visibly glued or screwed from the outside.
  • For right angles, sliding doors, swinging doors, drawers and over corners.
  • Glued cabinet locks can usually be removed without leaving any residue.
Function
  • How the fuses work varies. For example, with a strap lock, latch or with a magnetic hook.
  • Magnetic cabinet locks are opened with a magnetic key , which you hold on the hook (invisible from the outside), whereupon it opens. Very safe, because you can store the key childproof (and please find it again!).
  • Magnetic locks are not suitable for very thick wood or metal cabinets.
  • Belt/strap fuses are opened similar to a seat belt. Good over corners because it is flexible, but visible.
  • Latches, depending on model, are pushed down to open cabinets and drawers and it is usually invisible.
  • Some cabinet locks can be temporarily deactivated. It is useful if there are not always small children in the house, for example with the grandparents.
  • The cabinets can continue to be used as normal.
Age recommendation
  • As soon as your baby can crawl, it will playfully explore the world. Then you need to install cabinet guards everywhere, because your child can get trapped or find dangerous objects.
Quality and safety
  • Look for tested cabinet locks that are free of harmful substances and have been tested for safety (GS and TUV test seals).
  • If your child can open the cabinet lock by himself, you have to switch to others.
