CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To prevent an older child with learning disabilities from entering the kitchen unsupervised. An existing lattice gate that was not strong enough to deter a 7-year-old boy can be reinforced. The Gate was mounted on solid wood boards firmly screwed into both sides of the doorway. The lattice was renforced by a wooden bar mounted on a hinge on the same side of doorway to which the lattice collapses. The bar folds down onto the top of the closed gate and fastens to the opposite side of the doorway. A barrel bolt is installed on the underside of the bar, out of the child's sight, to hold the bar in place. TITLE: Reinforced Kitchen Gate. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
