Cupboard and drawer safety for the safety of your child
Why do I need a drawer safety device in the kitchen?
All drawers in the kitchen must be off-limits to small children's hands. You keep knives, forks and scissors in them that can be dangerous for your children. That's why you have to install drawer safety devices everywhere in the kitchen so that all drawers remain firmly closed. These must also be secured so that children cannot pull the drawers out of the cupboard during their first attempts to stand up. Each handle is perfect for holding on to as your child takes their first steps into the world. To prevent injuries, you should childproof all drawers with a drawer safety catch.
Why is a cupboard safety device necessary in the kitchen?
Cleaning agents are often stored in the kitchen cupboards, which your child must not get their hands on due to toxic ingredients. Already at crawling age, children can open the cupboard doors without having to use the attached handles. The doors can be pulled open with the hands at the lower edges, provided they are not locked by a cupboard safety catch. Very important: a cupboard safety catch protects your little darling's hands from getting painfully caught.
Why does a cupboard in the bathroom also need a cupboard safety catch?
In many households, medicines, scissors and bandages are stored in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. You also need to secure this cupboard if it is not lockable or can be reached by children's hands. Also pay attention to the sink cabinet, which also contains cleaning or washing products, razor blades or a hair dryer that do not belong in the hands of your child.
Should I secure all cupboards and drawers?
You don't need to put a drawer lock on every drawer unless your child can reach it on their own. It is more effective to put all toxic chemicals and things that a child could hurt themselves on in a cupboard. Then secure it with a drawer lock or a cupboard lock. Make sure that your child can't get their fingers caught in all the other cupboards and drawers. In this case, a safety lock is also appropriate there.
What is the difference between internal and external fuses?
Internal fuses are screwed on inside the cabinet or drawer, external fuse systems can be attached by sticking them to the outside. Both variants make cupboards and drawers childproof; their use merely depends on the respective fastening options. In addition, internal securing systems have a so-called waiting position. This means that they ensure that drawers or doors do not slam completely shut, but remain open for a few centimetres. This finger pinch protection protects children's hands and they can still explore everything.
What is the difference between a multi-locker and a cupboard lock?
As the name suggests, multi-fuses are not limited to one specific use, but can be used in different ways. With a multi-fuse, you can also childproof your refrigerator, washing machine or dishwasher. This is practical because a fuse can be universally attached to different appliances. It is glued on or fixed with screws so that one end of the fuse is on the side of the housing. The other end gets its place in the front area. The safety cord between the two ends prevents your child from opening the door.
What does a drawer safety device for very shallow drawers look like?
Due to the narrow profile, the cutlery drawer safety catch can also be fitted in drawers with a low height. The safety device is shaped in such a way that even in a drawer with an integrated cutlery tray there is enough space for its installation. Thanks to a double locking mechanism, it is not possible for your child to open the drawers independently. The ability to specifically press a button develops only at a later age. If the child pulls on the drawer, it opens only a few centimetres without your child being able to get hold of a knife or fork through this gap. The integrated pinch protection makes the drawer lock childproof and if it is to be opened by an adult, all that is needed is a deliberate release.
How safe are cupboard and drawer locks?
In order to offer babies and small children maximum protection, reer products are checked according to strict testing standards. In doing so, the article not only undergoes in-house tests, but is also examined by independent institutes. Our cupboard and drawer locks are tested according to the current EN 16948:2017 standard.
They successfully pass holding tests, durability tests and load tests. Even under heavy loads, they sit reliably on the piece of furniture. Even after long use, the opening mechanism remains unchanged and difficult for children's hands to open. The stability of the material remains constant and thus prevents the fuses from breaking apart even after more than 5000 openings.
