Confounding Door Lock - Seniors

This ingenious, strong Alzheimer’s door lock requires no key and does not look like a lock. It opens by pulling and rotating the door-jamming "blocker" out of the way of an in-swinging door. Caregivers can unlock the confounding door lock easily, but persons with dementia (who do not know the trick) can try for hours with no success.

This Alzheimer’s safety device works on doors that swing inward only. It's easy to install for any handy person, requiring only three screws (provided). It can be installed on wood or a metal frame and requires a drill and a screw driver. (provided)

Can be installed on wood or metal doors, requires a drill and a screw driver. Not recommended for use on exit doors - for safety reasons. Lock access only from inside.

Recommendation: When using this lock to deny access for people with dementia, locate the Confounding Door Lock either exceptionally high or exceptionally low - where one would not expect to find a lock. The combination of an unusual appearance and unusual location will aid in disguising the device.

This was very easy to install and easy to use.  My husband has moderate stage Alzheimers and after struggling to open the door he noticed the lock low on the door and figured out how to unlock it.

It didn't take long for the door lock to be tested.  It did just what I wanted. No more night time trips out of the bedroom

Great find and easy to install. My Mom can go about her business inside her home and know that my Dad can't get out the front door.
Peace of mind is a beautiful thing!

Best purchase ever! May 23, 2016

Purchased this lock for moms p.m. wandering behavior.  Totally solved our problem.  She attempted to unlock the door, never noticed the new lock and moved on to other tasks.  Best purchase ever.  Should have bought it a year ago!
