My favorite childproofing item is a cabinet lock called Tot-Lok--it works
like a regular lock, but it's activated by a magnet and there's no
visible sign from the outside of the lock. Better than a key, and much
better than the cabinet latches most people get stuck (literally) with.
The company that makes Tot-Loks is:
P.O. Box 99585
Jeffersontown KY 40269-0585
toll-free in the U.S.: (800) 762-9030 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time
I bought mine at the Container Store, which has branches in Texas,
Atlanta, Washington area, and Chicago. Or you can mail order by calling
toll-free to (800) 733-3532, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central time.
You can by a starter pack of one key and (I think) 2 locks, or buy keys
and locks separately. The price works out the same either way, as I
They're pricey and tricky to install, but worth the money and effort. We
just bought our house and are planning more kids, so we figure the locks
are going to be in for a lot of use :-) !
