Child-safe drawers

Our customers needed childproof drawers in their homes. With the help of our products you have achieved the perfect drawer security.

The problem is well known: the toddler begins to crawl and crawl and nothing is safe anymore in the apartment. Drawers and doors in particular have a magical attraction for children – like magnets!

Child-safe drawers

This drawer of a kitchen cabinet has a fixed handle on the inside.
Unlike in an example in the blog, there is no handle on the outside by means of a hole that can be used as a fixation point for magnets or metals.
The solution: fixation of magnets on the inside of the drawer front.

Pre-drilled holes for magnets

Magnets used

Magnets masked

  • 1 Discmagnet Ø 20.0 x 5.0 mm N42 nickel – holds 6.1 kg was used per drawer
  • A Frenzel drill with a 20 mm diameter was used
  • Drilling machine
  • Magnet holder – used as a handle
  • Discmagnet Ø 20.0 x 2.0 mm N45 nickel – holds 2.5 kg
  • Since the wood is too thick for normal magnets (> 1 cm) and fixation is made easier, a Frenzel drill is used on the inside of the drawer to drill an exactly 2 cm diameter hole up to approx. 5 mm remaining depth of the wood.
  • Fit discmagnets with a diameter of 20 mm.
  • The height is at least 1 cm.
  • Depending on the thickness of the wood, the magnets can also be completely sunk.
    Caution: do not drill too deep!
  • Pay attention to the alignment of the magnets and then fix the magnets with a piece of fabric tape on the inside of the drawer.
