Doorway Safety

This is a terrifically simple, easy to use, inconspicuous, little-known babyproofing gem of a lock for household doors. Most children learn how to open those annoyingly difficult and ugly knob or lever handle covers.

  • This lock is the only lock which allows you to lock and unlock a closed door from both sides.
  • The plastic U-channel rests on top of the door, so it is a long time before little ones can reach.
  • From either side of the door, parents can slide the lock to or away from a peg which is screwed into the door frame.
  • Fits standard interior doors measuring up to 1 3/8" thick and requires some clearance to allow it to slide.
  • Some doors may need some simple sanding across the top to allow for the sliding.  

For wider thickness doors see TWO-WAY TOP DOOR LOCK - WIDER, DW4w.C 

ADD ON optional (shown in picture)  easy grip Extender Wand for shorter adults to reach. see DW2w Extension Wand.

Named for its " tail", the parent invented Door Monkey's unique design automatically locks interior doors in a slightly open (approximately 2 inches) position.

  • It is a lock as well as a pinch guard.
  • The Door Monkey works with regular width 1 3/8" inside doors.
  • Simply clamps to the edge of the door in seconds, without tools, tape or hardware.
  • Soft rubber grips protect the mounting surface.
  • Can be operated from either side of the door.
  • Place it at any height up or down the side of the door and it  will catch to the door jam right angle ledge, (if you do not have this right angle a mounting plate to help you create one comes with it)
  • Depending on which side of the door you are on, simply push the button or pull the "tail" to unlock the door.
  • Mount it high and out of sight for taller users, or in reach for older siblings to maintain their independance of being able to go in and out.
  • Automatically locks itself as you close the door.
  • Safer than using bolts or hooks and eyes which could lock someone in a room without being able to get out.
  • Use the tail feature to conveniently hang the Door Monkey on the door knob when not being used.
  • Portable: take on trips, to Grandma's house, etc
  • Keep the kids and pets out of the baby's room during nap time and still be able to hear your baby's waking sounds.

The standard coily metal spring doorstops with a plastic cap on the end are very attractive for crawlers to twang but could be a choking hazard when the tip comes off. This replacement one-piece, soft plastic stops are a safer choice. Unscrew the old one and by hand use the same hole to turn this new one into the same place.

A uniquely simple, inconspicuous, sturdy lock works where doors or windows slide from side to side. So simple people do not believe it works until they see it in action. It is secure enough to keep burgulars out and police impressed. Babysecure clients who have had robberies tell us how robbers, unable to get in  where this lock was installed, had to move on to find another way in.

  • Made of transparent Lexan, part of the device fixes with sturdy adhesive to a flat surface. The other half folds at right angles to block anything trying to slide past it.
  • When you want to unlock, snap this second piece back down flat out of the way.
  • It needs 3/8" of clearance between doors.
  • Use on sliding or double hung windows, patio doors, sliding mirror, shower, and closet doors.

Children crunching fingers in doorways is one of the leading injuries seen in pediatric emergency rooms. As seen in the picture,  the Finger Alert is hardly noticeable and does not change the look of the home or child care facility.

  • It consists of two transparent, sturdy plastic strips which cover over the gap between the door and the frame on both sides of your door.
  • Fixing with special adhesive, they are flexible enough to allow for full opening and closing of the door.
  • Installs in minutes without requiring tools.
  • Great for home but also for daycares where there can be larger, heavier, sometimes metal doors.
  • For busier public activity centres, a few screws can be added for greater stability.
  • Tested to over 200,000 opening and closing movements, they are very durable, and last for years.
  • Babysecure has used them in daycares, YMCA's and indoor play centres where there is lots of traffic.
  • 47" High, it allows for the door to have a range of motion of 110 degrees.
