Wiggy, so the bolt you cut to size ?
If you need to, yes, just go and buy it, buy a few of the options, play about with them, a great man once said : whatever you decide to do, just do something.
This got silly 3 pages ago, now its just kin crazy, do it G do it just do it.I am not normally this Patience but I want to see you do it , get it done.
How does a horizontal bolt going through the left-hand side of the cabinet and into the edge of a door that slides away from that bolt actually manage to secure that door.
What am I missing?
Graham, go for that wee plastic stopper thing for totts.
as an aside
because your cabinet is printed paper on board with a plastic laminate covering any sort off glue or adhesive may damage the surface far more than a few screw holes
Come on DA, you winding me up aswell…..
What about http://www.ironmongerydirect.co.uk/..._cabinet_locks/14012/cabinet_push_lock/133156
Simply put the lock on the left hand frame, small hole in the door and away we go !
DA, any links to a rubber stopper ??
That's the baby .
(I hope it comes with full instructions.)
WIGGY, not a wind-up, honest . I'm clearly missing something really obvious. I understand that bolt to be a straight bolt that will come through the unit side, lie horizontally and go into the edge of the door. What have I missed?
My mistake DA, I saw it as being threaded all the way along the bar……..
In my haste to find a solution for G man.
That would work from the top or from the side at an angle and it also brings to your attention my lie earlier… '' I have done it before ''
the child will have grown up and left home if this goes on much longer
Give the lock to the kid to fix on….
I've bought one of them Sean, review on Amazon got one star !!!

Looks like the mods got there first
part of me tells me I shouldn't be typing this, 5 pages of advice on how to stop a child getting to the DVD player....anyway my thought..........
Can you put a catch behind one of the draws that secures it in an open position (of about 10-15mm) the draw would in tun stop the sliding doors been opened and such device could be fitted on rear if cabinet a) away from little fingers to work out how to open b) where device would have no visual impact on unit ? perhaps such a solution has already been suggested, I don't know and have no intention of reading some 95 posts !
suggested exactly that but he wants one door to open a fact only mentioned when i suggested that lol
page 3 reply 45
To be fair DIYdave, I thought my suggestion was pretty good one. No need to be rude.
5 pages of advice, well some of that was me trying to understand some of the advice and you guys taking the **** out of me.
Seriously though graham,
Please let the forum know what you decide on, how did the job go and, most importantly -,did it work. A photo would be nice as well
Not enough posters follow up on their original thread once the job has been done, they just take the advice and vanish
The forum can be a little like the school playground at times but mainly we are a caring bunch, really
I'm just a basic DIYer.
