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.

5 of 5 Excellent invention! April 20, 2021
Reviewer: Deb Syms from Abbeville, SC  
I was so impressed with the first one I installed that I ordered a second one.

5 of 5 Worked so well, got another one. April 15, 2021
Reviewer: Andre from Southborough, MA United States  
I had installed one of these on one door only, but it was so effective that I decided to install another on the remaining exit door for added flexibility and security. It's a very clever design, and sturdily built. We have much better security and peace of mind because of it.

5 of 5 Easy to install after reading directions a fewimes April 7, 2021

5 of 5 Very ingenious lock March 29, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Massachusetts  
I'm very pleased that I purchased this lock. It's sturdy, it blends in well with the door and decor, and it works! I saw it in action. I was doubtful at first that it would be an effective deterrent, but it most definitely is. I feel much safer now knowing that my loved one will not be able to wander off while I'm not around. And it's easy to mount! It's an excellent product.
