Why I need safety latches...


We can't seem to figure out how to install safety latches on our cabinets and drawers (they won't screw into the wood like they are supposed to) and this is what my whole house is starting to look like! :)
Anyone have any ideas???

Wow . . . I guess I can only relate all too well. You may just have to put locks on the outside of the doors to keep him from entering the room if the latches don't work. We just don't let our boys in our bedroom, because they get into our closet in my scrapbooking stuff or they hit up our bathroom with make-up and everything else. Or they find pads and think that they're treats. Anyway, it will be really funny in a few weeks and definitely months. Hang in there!

Welcome to the world of toddler's!! It drives me crazy when Amirra does something like that. I try not to laugh, but sometimes it so funny to see her do it. :) Rob had to make his own hole in the door's then put the safety latches. Amirra can still get into one carbinet with the safety locks, I don't know how she does it, but she can and there are diapers and wipes EVERYWHERE!!!! The joys of childern :)

babies r us sells some alternate latches for drawers that are sticky if you cannot screw them on, and they have worked good for me. I do not use the screw ones b/c it is my moms house. I would get online and see what else you can find. And YES ALL of our kids have done this!
