Being that there are three very popular types of child proof cabinet locks on the market I decided that this article would be helpful to more people if it included installation instructions on all three types. As apposed to just one of the three, even though in my personal opinion there is only one type of lock that should be used. You can see my reasons for feeling this way in this article “What is the Best Child Proof Cabinet Lock?” Anyway, now that pesky personal opinion out of the way lets find out how to install those locks.
How to Install Child Proof Cabinet Locks

The sliding locks are definitely the simplest child proof locks to install. They require no tools and as long as your cabinets have handles or knobs they should work. Here is the video if you have any questions on how these locks work.
