We won’t beat around the bush here … You must, absolutely must, use a child proof deluxe top door lock on your bathroom door. Why all the fuss? Well, here’s something you probably didn’t know about your child. And this is a game-changer.
The typical baby’s head is 35 percent of their body mass, and most toddlers can’t touch their hands over their heads. That means if they fall into the toilet or a bucket head first, they will not be able to push themselves out. You have two minutes until brain damage occurs.
Get yourself a plan, and this won’t happen to you. Here are a few tips to get you started …
Empty out water whenever possible
This includes cleaning buckets, baby pools, and essentially wherever there is a container of water. Empty all the water immediately after use. Tie a string to your finger or implement some other kind of reminder so you don’t forget. It’s that important!
Use toilet locks
If you think your toilet isn’t a massive hazard to your child, think again. Children can pull themselves up and fall into the toilet and not escape. It’s horrible, tragic and it CAN happen to you. But it doesn’t have to. Buy some childproofing toilet locks, and you’re halfway there.
The best child proof deluxe door top lock for your bathroom
By far, the best plan is to prevent your toddler from entering the bathroom unattended in the first place. You need a childproof door lock that sits at the very top of your door, so you can reach it – but your child can’t.
Look for something like the GlideLok Top of Door Childproofing System:
- Sits completely out of reach of children

- Made of durable metal instead of flimsy plastic, so your lock won’t bend or break
