If safety is a real priority in your house, consider investing in Tot-Lock magnetic latches for your kitchen and bathroom cabinets. This sophisticated locking system, which doesn't show from the outside of the cabinets, requires a special key that magnetically opens the locks. The locks also have a switch you can use to turn off the cabinet safety latch system if you desire when your children are in bed. This is the easiest and most secure type of cabinet latch system to use, but requires that you find a place where you can keep the key handy for you but where your child won't be able to get it. A starter set of four locks and a key costs about $20.
