I could order the part, but I was wondering if any had seen these around. As far as the teenagers, I am more worried about one of my 4 kids, under the age of 7 crawling in ad dying.

That is a good idea, I still would want to buy a new one for the third drawer, and rekey the other two. It seems like a standard lock, any clue what this type of lock is called to research?

Just a different take on the safety aspect.

What about no latches...just some spring loaded hinges that any toddler could kick their way out of. Like the cooler doors at the grocery store.

You are probably correct, there is not a lot of resistance to the door, at this point, and it is not a flash freeze, so I am guessing it is not as bad as I envisioned. I was really just trying to lock my wife out of the stash!! You can see the picture she already sees it as a second fridge :)

What I really need to figur out is how to wire it up to a love controller.
