What Are The Best Locks For Drawers And Cabinet Doors?

What Are The Best Locks For Drawers And Cabinet Doors?

My LO keeps going into my drawers and cabinets and taking out my clothes and underwear and sometimes I can’t find them! I get so angry so I know I have to do something before I make myself sick.

If you are up for it, child safety locks are pretty great and not horribly expensive. It also might be worth thinking about moving most of your own clothes into another room that your husband doesn’t go in to. Having a space that is just your own feels very necessary on this caregiving journey!❤️

I do have a room that I keep locked, but I have drawers and cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom that h3 uses. I bought the locks with the magnets that seem to work SO FAR! Thank you for all the info.

Perhaps it would be better if you had a separate room to secure your things in and lock only that door, rather than look for small locks? Of course, it would depend on having a spare room and how convenient it would be for you. I know it must be frustrating for your LO to be moving your things around. I couldn't deal with that and just the illness and stress it causes. I hope you find a solution quickly.

Well you can look on the Alzheimer's site and see what they have.
