No, no, that isn’t a typo.
I didn’t mean to type Trunk Monkeys and somehow missed by a bunch of letters.
You see, my daughter is a stubborn type of child who likes to go places where she isn’t invited, such as my bathroom or the hallway closet.
Enter the door monkey.
It is the easiest, safest type of child door “lock” I have ever had the pleasure of using. It also works double duty as a pinch guard.
You simply attach the door monkey to the door without any type of adhesive or screws (it takes about, oh, 1 second) and voila! Your doors are childproofed.
Granted, it isn’t perfect for when you desire complete privacy as there is about an inch and a half gap where the door is slightly ajar, but if I need privacy I just enter the preferred room and lock the damn door. Usually I appreciate the gap as it allows for air circulation.
These monkeys have worked flawlessly for about a year now, and the ONLY problem I can see is if your little darling decides to climb up on something and unlatch the door that way, but if you child is doing that, you have much bigger problems.
Besides, I like being able to go around the house asking everyone where the monkeys are.
