Child safety locks at the store are over priced and useless. Either your child discovers immediately how to bypass it or they just plain don't work . Everyone has a picture hanging kit laying around and probably a lot of these little hangers you otherwise wouldn't use ! Let me tell you I am the very proud father of 3 highly intelligent children that figure out everything I do the first time they see me do it and they can't open these only the oldest can at 4 years old now . They know how they work but little fingers can't turn them .

Step 1: Drill Pilot Hole

Choose a spot to drill out a small hole right next to the corner of the cabinet or the center of the drawer.

Step 2: Child Proof !

Screw the hook, the color of your choice, into the hole and Voilà! You now have a very simple yet extremely effective child lock for you cabinets and drawers to keep little ones safe and saving a lot of money in the process . A simple counter clockwise turn opens the lock and a clockwise twist locks it .
