This refrigerator lock is made in the USA.
It's easy to install and to remove.
It will not damage your refrigerator's finish.
Help put an end to that age old question, "Who left the refrigerator door open?"
How many times -
Now you have control of the refrigerator door!
Clear refrigerator lock blends in - As shown on the right, whatever color is behind the refrigerator lock will be what shows up, not the lock itself. This means it's a perfect match for your appliance every time.
It also means that the refrigerator lock is less noticeable. While it's not invisible, the the fact that it's 'camouflaged' means it attracts less attention.
Easy installation - This refrigerator lock is easy to install.
For best results - Try to install the refrigerator lock at a time when it can be allowed to sit for several hours before use, so the adhesive has time to really set properly. Maybe after bedtime one night, or just before a trip?
For freezers - We've even used this Refrigerator Lock on the top of our standard refrigerator/freezer, to keep the freezer door closed. Because it's on the top of the unit AND because it's clear, it's not even noticed up there!
Easy operation - It couldn't be easier! To disengage the refrigerator lock, simply push in on the door while gently pulling the refrigerator lock out from the 'hook'.
It's as easy as the pie they can't get at until dessert...
Hard for children to figure out - Think about it; the usual way to open the refrigerator door is to pull on it. But this refrigerator lock requires that you PUSH the door in to disengage the lock. So unless they see how you operate it, they may not figure it out!
Using a strong rubber strap and a patented latch, this Side by Side Fastener helps secure the doors of your side by side refrigerator.
The design of this Side by Side Refrigerator Fastener will, at the very least, slow down someone trying to get into the fridge, giving you time to intervene!
Reasonbly priced - At only $7.00, this handy Side by Side Refrigerator Fastener is worth trying while you help your child learn to stay out of the fridge between meals.
This Refrigerator Lock comes complete with a padlock and key, great for classrooms, group homes and other settings.
Works on standard fridge or freezer, this refrigerator lock can also be installed on side or top of the fridge. Two kits will handle both doors of a side-by-side, or both the fridge and freezer doors of a standard fridge.
Comes complete - Everything you need to install is provided in this kit; simply clean the installation spots, attach the self stick 'arms', wait 24 hours, then attach the enclosed locking padlock.
PLEASE NOTE - While all of these Refrigerator Lock systems will help keep your child from getting into the fridge, no system is foolproof.
Please read the helpful hints below for ways to get some control over this situation.
Keep them from seeing it in use - Many have found that the secret to using a refrigerator lock is doing your best to keep your child from seeing you operate it, especially if your child is autistic.
There are many ways to accomplish this:
We found that simply blocking Lucas' view of the refrigerator lock while we were using it worked for over a year.
For autism - If you have a child with autism, remember to work on whatever issue this refrigerator lock is helping to solve:
For instance, if your child is raiding the fridge and you think it's out of boredom, work on what they can do at that time instead of eat (computer game, legos, puzzle, etc.)
If you think your child is getting into the refrigerator because they're uncertain about when the next meal time is, work on using a visual schedule for autism. "Seeing" the next meal or snack time on the schedule may lessen their anxiety, and keep them from trying to raid the refrigerator.
The refrigerator lock also works on freezers, which means no more wasted food because someone didn't shut the door all the way. For this price, you can't beat it!
