Child safety lock for cabinet/cupboard by macphyter Aug 5, 2012

Description

This is a replica of the safety latch by EliteNetworks. I eliminated the corner brace so that it will print well without support. I also countersunk the screw holes so it works well with standard wood screws.

Update: I rounded off the sharp tip because it was too poky. I also added a fillet in the corner to relieve the stress and make it less prone to break off. New version is mylock3.scad.

Interesting... What machine are you printing it on? I used a stock prusa at 0.28 layer height and 30% infill, and they work great.
Going to try one of these again . :) I messed up the 1st time. That arm needs slow speed & high heat for mine to cut it. I like the size
Printed one.. It looked great … then I touched it and it just flew apart.. Hmmm The last thing I printed an hour ago was solid.. Maybe this is meant for another machine.. It looked perfect but mine crumbled. :(

Instructions

Print it out and mount it to the inside of your cabinet doors using #6 x 3/4 inch wood screws with countersink heads. Sorry, I don't know the metric equivalent of this screw. This should keep the little kiddies out of your cupboards... until they learn how to bend it out of the way.
