I saw your post as I arrived home from buying magnetic child safety locks. I installed the left side and did a 180 mile round trip. Worked perfect. I just finished installing the right side. I did 10 in all. Here is what I found at Home Depot but they are probably available at many hardware stores.
The kit includes catches, locks, one key, screws, templates and directions. The directions were not great but adequate to get started. I needed two kits because ofvt he number of drawers and doors.
Here is the finished product on the closet door and a drawer.
This worked well on my Campster
because I have wood framing for the cabinets. I suspect on the eggs with fiberglass
cabinets that you could eliminate the catch and adjust the latch to grab the edge of the fiberglass
. Your experience may vary.
I also installed a childproof lock on the dorm fridge
to keep it closed in transit. That has proven to work on the same trip.
