If your curious toddler keeps opening drawers and cupboards, secure them with our pick of the best locks and latches. If you're just starting out on the baby proofing mission, check out our full baby proofing checklist to make sure you've not missed anything and baby is kept happy and safe.
Dreambaby Drawer Stoppers
If you’ve got a drawer full of stuff and are worried about your child pulling it out onto himself, these drawer stoppers can help. Simply screw a stopper into the back of the drawer, and it will catch on the upper lip of the drawer holder. This will only work if the drawer frame hangs over the drawer when opening (£1.99, safetots.co.uk).
Dual Locking Multi-Purpose Latch
Stop your toddler opening cupboard doors (and slamming or catching their fingers in them) with these special latches, which hold doors together until you unhook them. They’re also ideal for cupboards containing cleaning products or glassware – we all know how tots like to explore (£3.50, munchkin.com.
BabyDan Magnetic Locks
Add a lock to kitchen drawers and keep inquisitive hands away from the knives or cutlery with the BabyDan Adhesive Magnetic Drawer Lock. It works by using a magnetic key to turn the lock “off” and so open the drawer (£2.45, safetots.co.uk).
Safety 1st Handle Flex Lock
If you’ve got a cupboard full of cleaning products, keep them out of reach of your toddler with this easy-to-secure lock. It works well on cabinet doors that have knobs which you can loop the flexible plastic over - a padlock symbol appears once you know the device is locked. You then push in the grey button and pull apart to unlock and remove (£2.99, Amazon.co.uk).
