Easy & Cheap Way To Child Proof Your Door Handles

This is not my setup but it was where I got the idea from. Credit to the original owner of the photo.

We recently ran into a problem with our young daughter. We went to visit relatives and she found her way out of the front door and was playing with the neighbors children. To think of the nightmare that could have happened. I get sick thinking about it.

I couldn’t very well ask the relatives to add child protective locks on their doors. So we had to come up with a simple cheap and effective solution to keep her safe.

We went to the dollar store and bought a rubber main salad bowl. We cut an X in the lid just big enough to force the door handle through. This lid screwed on to bowl tight. So we pushed the lid onto the handle and screwed the bowl on when we went to sleep. For a dollar it was a bit more protection – although not fool proof.

    Pretty brilliant, actually!

    …um … That phrase, though? It’s “fool” proof, not “full” proof.
