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.

Reviewer: Katherine from United States  
This door lock is an answer to prayers! My husband, who has dementia tried and tried to open the door after it was installed, but couldn't! I ordered 3 and they work wonders in keeping your love one safe and indoors. Please, any one who has a dementia patient, get this lock!! You'll be happy you did!

Reviewer: Rose from Sugar Land TX  
Selected colors to blend into door, placed high and my husband has not noticed them. But he cannot open doors. Looks like a regular part of door. Perfect for us.
