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 simple locking device has prevented my Mother from wandering at all hours of day and night.  Without this device I'm sure a disaster would've occurred.

This was one of the best purchases ever!
With mom starting to wander, this gives us total piece of mind that she cannot get out the front door with it in place! Super easy to install, you will have piece of mind that your loved one cannot get out while your head is turned!! Great value!

It has helped me immensely with my mom, she is very smart but can not quite figure the opening of the Guardian. So sad to say I needed it so bad but she is safer now. I thank you Alzheimer's Store for having just what I needed.
Sincerely, Nancy Winn (Daughter)

As advertised. Easy to install, seems secure to me. I don't think my Father will be able to get by it. Rest a little easier.
