3. Safety DIY Hack Secrets

Who would think rubber bands come in handy one day. I learned the hard way that you don’t walk out the door, not even for a second, when your toddler is inside and curious about every knob and button. My daughter managed to push the button on the inside of the handle the second the door slammed shut. I was locked out. I did have a key to open the door but what if I didn’t . Well here is the solution. Tie a rubberband around the door handles and over the part that latches and keep it from locking you out.
