What other purpose can cabinet latches serve?

Prevent Injuries

Safety latches don't only keep kids out of your drawers. They can also be an important way to help prevent injuries. By putting cabinet latches on all of the cabinets that your child can reach, you can keep him or her from opening the doors and drawers and then banging into them. Since sharp edges can be dangerous, using latches even on areas that don't contain any hazardous substances is just one more important step in your childproofing routine. It can also prevent your child from getting his or her fingers stuck in your cabinets and drawers. And for children who like to climb and explore, consider putting cabinet safety latches up on your high cabinets to limit access and injuries there, too.
