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.

These door locks have changed our lives as a caretaker and family of a person with dementia. She no longer can open the doors and wander outside. We can relax and not have a disruptive  incident at the exit doors. Thank you for offering these type of locks because she cannot problem solve to flip them up. Best solution ever!!!

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from OH, United States  
These confounding locks were replacement for ones we previously owned. It helps keep children(or adults) out of dangerous areas of the home. They are easy to install and work smoothly.

Great solution for my parents. My dad is sole care taker for my mom who has dementia. He feels more secure now that mom can't wander off unexpectedly. Great product. Cleverly made for these type of situations.
