Once your child discovers the ease of opening the refrigerator, which as you know he or she has seen you do time and time again, you can expect to walk into certain situations.

The Safety 1st Multi-Purpose Appliance Lock helps keep children from accessing potentially dangerous appliances. It is a small light adjustable lock that is ideal for the freezer, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher or whatever appliance you deem necessary. This strap attaches easily to your appliance and helps keep children from opening them.

With the one-time snap adjustment, it’s easy to customize the straps to fit to your appliance. Simple snap the strap to the correct length and place it using the easy adhesive attachment method.
