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 Peace of mind! July 24, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Clermont, FL United States  
The Door Guardian was so easy to install and has given us peace of mind Knowing that my advanced Alzheimer’s dad can not leave the house without our assistance!  The stress is gone.  I was able to install the Guardian in less than 10 minutes and the entire family is thrilled to know that dad is safe!

Reviewer: Karen B. from Houston, TX United States  
I had these locks installed on three doors in my home to keep my senior from wandering. My neighbor had found him on the back side of our block. They are Very easy for me to unlock. I can’t comment on how well they work because so far he hasn't tried to leave the house. However, I do feel that he is safer with them installed.

5 of 5 Works Great! May 4, 2020
Reviewer: Carol Allred from DFW area, Texas  
After returning a different product from another company because it wasn't workable, I had guarded hopes.  But this works wonderfully.  I had hoped I could install it with just my electric screwdriver, but I had to get someone with a drill to put it in just like the instructions said. LOL  It works great even though we had to use the short screws.  Since the screws go directly into the wood in a perpendicular way, that makes it strong.  My mom with dementia can't escape, and I can sleep at night.
