For parents with young children, safety around the home is paramount. And when it comes to sharp kitchen knives many people feel happier hiding these items away in a drawer.
But then the drawer needs to be secured, the blades can be easily damaged and the knives can be dangerous to take out when needed.
LockBlock™, however, provides the perfect solution. The innovative design locks knives safely inside the block and requires an adult-sized hand to operate it, meaning that most children aged 5 and under will be unable to remove any knife*.
As each knife is placed inside a knife slot, its blade is held securely by the unique Cam-lock™ mechanism. Pulling on a knife only increases the force of the grip so knives cannot be simply forced out of the block.
To remove a knife from LockBlock™ the release button, situated on either side for left and right-handed operation, needs to be firmly pressed. But due to its position and the force required to press it, only someone with an adult-sized hand can do this. The mechanism inside won’t damage expensive knife blades as it has a smooth rubber surface.
