Choosing the Best Safety Door Locks & Latches to Childproof Doors

Ensuring each door is babyproof is an important step in making sure your little ones avoid injury and stay safe in your home. Door locks for kid safety keep children exactly where they’re supposed to be and help avoid accidents. When choosing the right baby door lock, it’s essential that it’s easy to open for you, but at the same time, difficult for your child to figure it out. There are many child door safety products to boost your home’s security. Latches and locks vary by different mechanisms for specific purposes. When you’re looking to kid proof your home, make sure you’re up-to-date on door safety.

Door Knob Child Safety Covers

Door knob child safety covers fit over a door’s current doorknob. This round door handle cover commonly consists of the knob only being able to turn if the cover is pressed down in a specific fashion. When you’re looking to child proof a door knob, these covers are easy to install and easy for adult hands to turn. However, they often look too attractive for curious children because of buttons they have, so it may be just a matter of time until your kid gets to it and learns how to open the door.

Baby Lever Door Handle Locks

If your home’s doors have handles instead of knobs, babyproof lever door handle locks are a child proofing option that keeps your infant from pulling the handle with their bodyweight to easily open a door. The door handle guard easily fits over a given handle and is secured commonly with adhesive tape, but screw options are available as well to affix the baby proof lever to the door handle.

Top Locks

A top lock is difficult for young children to reach, which makes this a great option for childproofing a home. These locks are installed with a simple screw set up at the very top of a given door and unlocked by pulling on a hanging latch. The door can also be unlocked from either side to prevent accidentally locking yourself in or out of a given room.

Door Monkey

A door monkey is the perfect solution to keeping doors ever so slightly open. This allows for air circulation between rooms and pet areas. A door monkey simply clamps on the edge of a door without the need of tape or hardware. Pushing a button or pulling the tail unlocks the door from either side.This type of childproofing product can be applied at any height on a door, so taller household members can easily maneuver the device.

Door Stoppers

Door stoppers are an essential and easy-to-attach addition that will protect your little one’s hands and fingers from getting caught in a door frame. A U-shaped pinch guard can be clipped around the door edge to prevent a door from closing completely. Other models are attached to hinges. Stoppers also prevent doors from being slammed, which makes this addition a door protector as a bonus.

Child Locks for Front and Exterior Doors

There are a number of child locks for front and other exterior doors to protect toddlers with the spirits of explorers. A newly-installed door chain lock around five feet from the ground is a cost-effective and easy-to-install approach, but may lead to smashed fingers. To keep a front door, screen door, or patio door closed, yet still allow for easy adult access, consider top locks, round door knob or lever handle locks. These approaches ensure adults can come and go, but keep children from wandering unsupervised.

Interior Door Latches

Interior door latches are a solution that keeps your infant or toddler from exploring parts of the house, like your unsupervised pantry or closet, yet still provide adults with a convenient way of accessing rooms. The same top locks, handle and knob covers will work for interior doors.

Additionally, to allow for air to circulate between rooms, but still keep the doors partially closed, consider products like a door monkey—a latch that works regardless of a handle type, installs in seconds by simple clipping to the the door edge, and even doubles as a pinch guard.

Sliding Door Child Locks

Sliding door locks come in many shapes and sizes. Commonly, these locks offer a simple application that causes no damage to the glass or wooden door itself, and pulling back the latch allows for the door to easily slide open. Other options range towards permanent installment through screwing the lock into a door frame. These locks can be applied at any height, which makes operating the lock simple for adults and impossible for the smaller members of your household.

A safe and secure solution to the number of choking hazard in the household. The little door stoppers behind the doors should be replaced with a solid rubber doorstop.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to baby proof doors?

To baby proof doors properly, consider if you’re looking to hold a door closed, keep it open, or stop a baby from playing with a doorknob. Different door types need different baby proofing products. For example, a garage door, patio door, and front door may need similar door knob or lever handle locks, but a bedroom door may only need a door monkey or pinch guard. To decide on the most suited lock types and baby proof doors thoroughly, don’t hesitate to call in our expertly trained employees to assess your home’s needs.

How to baby proof French doors or double doors?

While beautiful, French doors and other double doors can be a safety hazard for little ones. The first step in baby proofing these specialty doors is to install tempered glass instead of regular, as tempered glass is five times stronger. Secondly, a top lock will keep doors from being easily opened by children. A baby fence with a gate around the doorway when the doors are open will keep children away from the door.

How to childproof pantry doors?

Normally, any lock for other doors works for pantry and closet doors. However, if your pantry or closet has a bi-fold double door style, there are specialty childproof locks for bi-fold doors.

How to baby proof a sliding door?

The first step to babyproofing a sliding door is to find the right lock for the job. Sliding door locks typically consist of a simple latch that, when lifted, allows for the door to slide open, but when down, keeps the door closed. If your sliding door is glass, make sure the glass is strong enough to keep from breaking easily, should an accident occur. When in doubt, call in our professionals to make sure your doors are properly secure.
