Installing child safety latches for cabinet doors is relatively easy (here's a video)

Similarly for the top drawer (pull-out) (video)

But is it possible to do this for the bottom drawers?

The problem is that I have nothing to latch on to.

  • The second video shows the installation of something to latch onto. It may take some creativity, but there's usually a way to create something to latch onto. A photo of the removed drawer and the cabinet with the drawer removed would help illustrate your problem.

  • The top drawer latches on to the frame of the cabinet (as in video #2) however the next drawer has the top drawer immediately above it

  • Perhaps a metal angle bracket could be attached to the cabinet side, which projects over the drawer side such that a catch attached to one side of the rear of the drawer front would hook it. Hard to say what will work without seeing it.
