Child Safety Locks & Child Safety Latches to Keep Children Safe near Cabinets & Drawers                       

Keeping your toddler out of cabinets and drawers is one of the most important babyproofing safety measures you can take in your home.  As children become more mobile you need to prevent them from accessing items in drawers or cabinets.  Kids don’t always know if they are about to be in harm’s way, and in these cases nothing works better than child safety locks and latches!

Whether you’re trying to keep your child away from household chemicals, cleaning supplies, sharp objects (like scissors and knives!), medicine, home supplies (pens, paper, crayons, glues etc.) or any other hazard, child safety cabinet locks and drawer locks are a key component to baby-proofing your home. Not only are they the best way to keep little hands out of harm’s way, but they are a practical way to avoid unwanted messes your curious children will create! Now, who can’t use a little peace of mind?

Cabinet & Drawer Safety childproofing products

Why Cabinet And Door Safety Is So Important

The CDC reports that every day, over 300 children ages 0 to 19 are treated in the emergency room, and two children die, as a result of being poisoned. Safety cabinet and drawer latches and locks should be installed as early as five months, but especially after your child begins to crawl, to avoid these tragedies!

Babyproofing your cabinets and drawers is easy with these products you can install in your home:

Child Proof Cabinet Locks          

Cabinet locks can be installed on any type of cabinet. Here are the most common cabinets where you should consider installing a childproof cabinet lock:

  •     All cabinets in the living room
  •     Cabinets in the kitchen
  •     Cabinets in the bathroom
  •     Cabinets in the laundry room
  •     Cabinets in the garage
  •     Cabinets in your bedroom
  •     Cabinets in your basement where children play

In fact, cabinet locks are designed in such a way that a child cannot be able to open them, but adults can easily access the cabinet.  Here are some common types of baby proofing cabinet locks we offer:

Magnetic Locks

This type of lock has strong magnets to keep cabinets locked tight. They are great because they keep the cabinet doors fully locked for protection. They are also very easy to use.

Slide Locks

This type of lock installs easily onto the handles or knobs of the cabinet and helps keep your child away from the contents inside.

Swivel Locks

Swivel Cabinet and Drawer locks are screw mount locks that have a swivel arm to allow for the lock to become disengaged for those times when the lock is not needed.

Cabinet and Drawer Latches    

Cabinet and drawer latches should be installed on any drawer or cabinet that contains harmful chemicals, sharp objects, or anything else that can pose a danger to your children.

When it comes to securing your drawers and cabinets, here are the most common places where you should consider installing a safety drawer or cabinet latch:

  •     Cabinets and drawers in the kitchen
  •     Cabinets and drawers in the bathroom
  •     Cabinets and drawers in the laundry room
  •     Cabinets and drawers in the garage
  •     Cabinets and drawers in your bedroom
  •     Cabinets and drawers in the basement

Cabinet and drawer latches are designed to create easy access for adults but make it virtually impossible for a child to open the drawer or cabinet.

Here are some common cabinet latches Child Safety Store offers:

Spring Loaded Latches

Spring 'n Release Latches help keep toddlers and young children out of off-limit cabinets or drawers. They are spring-loaded for easy use and have a wide easy-grip surface for easy adult access.

Press’n Pivot Latches

Press 'n Pivot latches are easy to install and feature a wide-grip surface making it easy for parents to open the latch. When not in use they conveniently pivot out of the way, and when it's time to keep the drawer or cabinet secure again, they pivot right back into place.

Drawer Latches

Drawer Latches are an important childproofing safety measure because they help to keep your curious crawler from accessing off-limit areas. They install easily inside of cabinets and drawers, making them invisible from the outside. Plus, they have wide, easy-grip surfaces that allow for easy parental access when needed.

General Cabinet & Drawer Childproofing Tips

Child safety latches automatically lock a drawer or cabinet when it is closed. Typically, they are attached to the inside of the drawers using screws. A cabinet lock, on the other hand, is attached to the knobs or handles and keeps the cabinet or drawer locked at all times.

These baby safety products help prevent your child from:

  •     Accessing dangerous objects, such as medication or knives.
  •     Closing their fingers in the drawers.
  •     Using the drawers as a ladder.
  •     Pulling a drawer out on themselves.
  •     The dangers of objects that can fall out of cabinets.

When deciding on what types of locks and latches to install in your home here are some things you need to consider:

  •     Be wary of drawer locks that allow the drawer to be opened a crack. Your child’s little fingers can still be squashed or closed if the drawer can be opened. Additionally, an older child may have success in using a narrow tool to pry the drawer open.
  •     Avoid magnetic locks that have weak magnets. This is common in cheaper locks since they likely have cheaper magnets.    
  •     Some locks need to be hardware mounted. While this is fine for most families, if you are a renter, you may not be allowed to modify permanent fixtures.
  •     Don’t choose a lock that you find difficult to use. Don’t assume that it will get easier over time. Instead, choose a lock that you can easily open and close to save yourself the frustration.
  •     Better safe than sorry – if you have any doubts, latch or lock it.
  •     Children are smart – don’t let them watch you lock a cabinet or they might be able to figure it out!
  •     Always supervise your children. There are many dangers inside and outside the home. Products help avoid danger in coordination with well supervised children.
