Babyproofing your Cabinets: Helpful Hints

We love cabinets, but we know when children are involved, babyproofing is needed in those early years. Once your baby starts crawling it is time to think about babyproofing.

We would like to recommend a few products that have worked for us, and also tested by Good Housekeeping, and they may just work for you:

The First Years Cabinet Safety Lock model 3337 and Kidco Cabinet Lock model S110. Both are plastic U-shaped locks that hook around cabinet knobs or handles quickly. It is an easy pinch to release for adults.

For DrawersTot Lock/Safety 1st Magnetic Cabinet Locks – Good Housekeeping says you just need a magnetic key over the surface of the cabinet to unlock it. These locks can be “turned off” for busy times. Above-average carpentry skills are required, but these were the best that Good Housekeeping tested, and magnets are easier for lock-challenged adults.

Good luck and, remember, this is not a forever thing, but an important thing.
