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:

  • The most obvious and easy one is to block your child's seeing you operate the refrigerator lock, by standing between them and the lock while you open the door.
  • You can also distract your child when you need to use the refrigerator lock ("Look at that butterfly!" or "It's time for Sesame Street.")
  • Having someone else in the house distract your child also works.

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 other activities that they can do at that time(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.
