Childproofing The Kitchen Cabinets + Giveaway

Now that we are renters, we knew that we wanted to maintain a home that was as childproof as possible with the least amount of physical damage to the property. I was super apprehensive to take a screwdriver to someone else’s kitchen cabinets if it meant not recuperating our entire security deposit later on. I also did not want to sacrifice Caden’s safety.

Installing KidCo Adhesive Locks

Our little guy loves to explore so I knew we needed to find a solution that wouldn’t damage the cabinets but would keep Caden out. I was so happy to find KidCo Secure Stick Adhesive Mount Cabinet and Drawer Lock. These locks are amazing! It took my husband less than 10 minutes to install them on all of our kitchen cabinets and they work great!

In our townhouse we drilled holes into our kitchen cabinets to secure several childproof locks. While this is not a huge deal when you are the homeowner, I would have preferred to not permanently alter the kitchen cabinets with holes. Had we known about the KidCo locks at that time we would have installed the adhesive mounting locks instead.

Not only did they take less time to install but they work just as well. Plus they leave no damage when they are removed.  We know this because Josh accidentally misplaced a lock and we had to remove it from the cabinet. After removing the lock the adhesive was still super sticky and was able to be repositioned on the cabinet.

Honestly I can’t say enough great things about this product. They were so easy to install and can be installed instantly on wood, metal, or glass. No tools are required. That is a win in my book!

  1. I need these so badly…my 7 month old just started to crawl and pull up and my house is SO not child proofed!! We are also renters, so I love this idea! So far, I’ve only covered the electrical outlets and picked up all of our speakers/things with cords and wires. Why are they so fascinated by cords?!?

  2. We just bought the magnetic childproof things for the cabinets. They work great, but you have a little “key” with them too, so hopefully that doesn’t get lost!

    We are in the process…currently bolting the bookcase to the wall in the nursery!

  4. We have put locks on cabinets, moved cleaning supplies from under the sink, and mounted furniture to the wall but my active son still finds things each day that we need to childproof. He keeps us busy!!!

  5. Our son is only four months so we haven’t done much childproofing yet but we will definitely be doing that when he starts to crawl!

    We have been in the process of child proofing for a while now. Like you, I just don’t want to put holes in my 1,000,000 cabinets but I also don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. I had no idea these existed! Our #1 priority when Bella was learning to walk was child proofing the fireplace because I could just see her face bouncing off of the raised front of it when she was learning how to walk. I say we are still in the process because those little ones teach you to child proof things all day! Thanks for the opportunity!
