Cupboards & Drawers

Next to magical, touch your the front of your closed cupboard drawers or doors with the knob-shaped "key" and presto, they unlock. 

  • The Tot Lock is the orginial magnetic child safety latch which others now have copied
  • It is well constructed and warranted for life not to break .
  • The cabinet doors stay firmly closed, so there no worry about your having enough space to reach in under wide counter overhangs or little ones getting fingers smashed as with the typical two piece inside latches.
  • Latch can be set to an unlocked position, making them great for grandma's house or when your busy in the kitchen and the children are asleep. Make sure to remember to lock them later.

The Key to open the latch is sold separately  (See Tot Lock Key CD1K) See ATTACHMENT file below for further installations details.

The Adhesive Magnet Latch is popular for its ease of installation and less need for making holes on the inside of the cupboard.

  • It can be installed inside cupboard doors and some drawers with adhesvie but may need a few small screws to keep it secure. It will depend on the surface and the force which is used on it.
  • Built-in attached mounting tabs and guides make this latch the easiest to install.
  • It avoids children's fingers getting pinched as well as keeping them out.
  • Wave the Key on the outside of the door across from where the latch is installed inside and it unlocks. No need to  directly touch the outside of the cabinet door, saving it from rub marks which will show over time. 
  • Keep the key (sold separately, see CD19k)  up high out of reach on any metal surface, fridge, overn hood, screw of a light switch.
  • Key also comes with a convenient holder to allow the Key to be stuck to any surface for quick and easy access.
  • This latch is the solution for many cupboards where standard latches do not give you enough room to reach in to unlock. 
  • Adhesive works best on clean, smooth surfaces.
  • It has a convenient switch which allows you to undo the locking mechanism if you are busy in the kitchen or visitors come to cook.
  • Excellent for grandparents homes where the latch can be set to lock when the grand kids are over and unlock when they leave.

This is the preferred latch of our clients when Babysecure installs for them. There are two parts the latch and in our experience what works best is to screw in the catch piece. It is put up underneath part of the frame where no one would ever notice the screw holes. The latching part on the cabinet door does not require the large hole as competitor magnet latches. The lock will work in upright position only and may not be suitable for many stacked drawers. In some cases a special adaptor could help. Send us some pictures of your drawers and we can advise.

See Attachment file below for installation instructions.

This side-by-side latch locks two cupboard doors together by clamping around two knobs or handles positioned within 5 1/4 "of eachother. Has Safety First SecureTech™ indicator that lets you know when it's locked. Remove the latch with a coordinated push of two buttons on either side. Similar looking, less costing products can be of hazardously poor quality, which children can pull open. Does not work on drawers. You must remember to put it back on every time after use and for this reason auto locking internal latches (as seen below) are the safer choice. There needs to be a neck or stem to the knob for this latch to be able to fit and stay on.

A terrifically unique automatically-relocking latch, created by a professional babyproofer to fill a void in what was available to latch problematic drawers. Thanks Jeff.

Wonder Latch II solves many installation challenges particularly in drawers where there is no cross-brace framing between drawers. Its small size and footprint allows it to fit into tight spaces.

  • Mounts in three different ways for versatility.
  • Can be mounted facing up, facing sideways or facing down.

These spring style latches are favoured for being easiest for adults to open with a push of the button. The one piece design of this automatically-locking latch also allows for easier installation.

It locks by catching to the inside frame of the cabinet. which is not always there in some cupboard systems, see line drawing.  Pictured on the left, you can see that compared to the one beside, the back plate is taller. This makes for better support when installed to an inside box of the drawer which is lower than the drawer front. Wider length of the latching catch gives more room to reach in if there is a deep counter overhang. As also shown  in the drawing, you will need to consider the depth of your counter overhang. If it extends more than 3/4" - 1 ", you may not have enough room to reach in to unlock the latch.

Put your back to children when you open. If it is easier for adults to open, then they may learn how by watching you. You may need to install two if you want to continue to keep them out.

The original two piece, automatically-locking latch is made of durable nylon. There are latches which copy this look but are not as sturdy. This one lasts for years. Easiest latch to work for drawer systems where drawers fit into the slots of the wooden frame. Locking part has low profile, making it possible to put the drawer back in after it is installed. Good where other latches give too much space to open and little hands could get in. Opens 1 3/4 ".

This small plate screws to the upper inside back of the drawer and will catch to the cabinet frame if the draw is pulled all the way out. Prevents drawers, with no stops, (typically antique or older pieces) from being completely pulled out and falling on top of a child or their toes. Excellent for shallow drawers with heavy contents such as cutlery or junk drawers with tools. A safety item for the adults in the family as well.

Similar to the Standard Latch, these latches can be disengaged when not needed by simply turning 90 degrees.

The Kidco Spring Action latch is similar to the Spring Latch, see CD2, except it has a great feature that you can set it into a unlocked position. When you are busy in the kitchen, or the baby is in bed,  you can temporarily disengage the lock. It also comes with an added "catch" piece, instead of just catching to the wood frame of the cabinet. This can be useful when the frame is made of soft wood and wear of the surface from the opening and relocking.

Spring style latches are favoured for being easiest for adults to open with a push of the button. In choosing a Spring Latch you need to consider the space you have to get your finger in, to undo the latch. This involves how much space there is between the counter top down to the top of the drawer and the depth of your counter overhang.  If the drawer is right up under the counter which sticks out more than 1 inch, you would not be able to reach in to unlock. Put your back to children when you open. If it is easier for adults to open, then they may learn how by watching you. You may need to install two, at either side, if you want to continue to keep them out.

This is the only automatically-locking two piece latch which mounts inside cupboard doors or drawers without needing tools and screwing into the surface. Fixes with an adhesive that withstands the pulling and tugging of children. Open the door or drawer a little bit, reach in and push to unlock with one finger. This latch is good for the stereo equipment, cabinet doors made of glass, mirror, varnished wood or metal. It installs in minutes with a unique adhesive that rubs off when latch is no longer needed. Generally does not have enough room to reach in to unlock for "inset" cupboard doors or drawers. Works better when the drawer or door closes to outside the cabinet frame as in picture attached.

The Grip Safe  is a novel and simple idea to deter children from opening cupboards or drawers without drilling holes.

  • Remove your current handles or pulls and replace by sliding in the Grip Save plate through the existing hole.
  • From the outside you will see a flush 2cm  diametre disc and nothing sticking out for a child to grab.
  • Open by touching the Magnet Grip Key, (which you store out of reach,) to the flat metal disk.
  • It will fix to the metal plate allowing you pull open doors or drawers weighing up to 11kg.
  • Because it is not a locking mechanism, if they think of it, a little person might learn to open the cupboard drawer by pulling from the bottom or exposed outside edges.
  • It may be the only way you can make it difficult to open those commonly found ,4 stacking  set of kitchen drawers (with no spaces inbetween)  where you can not find a traditional two piece latch to fit. (The WONDER LATCH II is the only latch that may lock these types of drawers)
  • Package contains 4 screw plates and one Grip Key.
