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.

3 of 5 Install lock April 8, 2024
Reviewer: Harold Ingram from Amelia Court House, VA United States  
The install is a little tricky as directions were confusing for me. Introductory paragraph included information that should have been in details. Three inch screws are not needed and are hard to install if wood is hard. Heads stripped even though I drilled holes initially. However, the concept works. I have purchased another one.
