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 does 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. (not provided)

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.

My husband has dementia and was escaping daily.   Since installing these locks he has been unable to get out.  Sadly he now trying the windows.

The lock is good.  I wish it came in other colors.  I don't like that i have to screw into the door but don't know what else you could do.  I like the design.

great little device, but it was not as easy to install as  the directions indicate.  We havde to chisel out the door jam to get the hinge to allow the door to close

My husband has advanced parkinsons and surprisingly enough,left alone long enough he figured out how to open the lock and got out.
