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.

The perfect product.  All you need is a wood chisel, a hammer and a screwdriver.  Stopped all of my wife's wandering problems.

Reviewer: Janet DeVoe from Sandwich, IL United States  
I love the Confounding Door Lock to keep my husband safe.  I have it placed low on the door and he has not noticed it.  I feel that it is better than a deadbolt lock.  I have recommended it to a friend whose husband also has ALZ.  Thank you.

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!
