What to Look For in A Door Lock

Any door lock that keeps kids out of harm's way is a good one. But there are a few factors to keep in mind when purchasing the right door locks for your home. Install locks properly and tightly. Never take shortcuts or use assembly materials that were not provided with the locks. Be sure the door lock is sturdy enough not to break with continued use. A good lock will keep a child out of a room, but will allow an adult to open a door quickly in case of emergency.
