Should you baby proof cabinets?

As a backup plan, it is recommended you move all dangerous items such as cleaning products or ceramic plates to cabinet spaces which will be difficult to reach. Alternatively, you can lock certain products such as cleaning products up in Tupperware containers.
How does a cabinet lock work?
The lock is installed so the bolt will slide into a hole on the top or bottom of the file cabinet shelf, depending on the design of the cabinets. When locked, the bolt then slides into this hole, and prevents the file cabinets from being opened.
How do I keep my toddler out of the kitchen?
Unplug and keep small appliances out of reach. Never allow appliance cords to dangle over the edge of the counter where your toddler can grab them. Keep knives, forks, scissors, and other sharp tools separate from “safe” kitchen utensils, and in a latched drawer.
How do I lock my toddler drawers?
The most popular way to baby proof drawers is to use magnetic locks. The locking mechanism is hardware mounted inside the drawer. The mechanism will not unlock until you open it with a magnetic key. Magnetic locks will generally come in a pack consisting of one magnetic key and numerous locks.
