I bought cabinet locks for the two cabinets that face each other directly under the sink and the stove, but I can't find locks for the cabinets that dont have a opposite. Can someone give me a link for single cabinets. Its a need until my son gets the full concept of "dont touch", :x



I feel like I explained that super stupid, so heres a pic of my kitchen cabinets so you can see what I mean: Locks for the 2 on the left and one on the right.

What kind of locks are you using? I am looking for some magnetic locks that work well. Is that the type you got?

Can you just put a temporary gate up so he can't enter the kitchen at all

I could but the kitchen is really the only "free" area where he can move around with his rolling toys and he likes to follow me in there when I go to do laundry and cook.

I got safety first ones from Walmart. I also did baby safe cabinets so he could play with bowls and tupperware.



You may just want to gate off your kitchen though..



Omg to have peace while cooking.. Id kill for that. We have an archway as an entrance to our kitchen and I cant find a gate wide enough lol I cant block mine off anyway, my oldests art corner is at the end of my kitchen.

I have ones that go on the inside and have a little latch that come with a magnet that you just slide over the lock and it opens the cupboard. Im not sure what they are called since I got them from my mom when she took them out. I like them because they are super easy to open and you don't see them on the outside.

I would use those adhesive locks and have them at the bottom of the cabinet and locked to the underside of it. If that makes sense.



They look like this:

I currently use it to keep the baby gate stored against the wall because the kids keep playing with it.
