Anyone who has to keep medicines in the refrigerator knows that medicines should be kept out of the reach of children in particular. A practical gadget can help and is suitable for numerous other things such as sweets, which should ideally be kept under lock and key.

Do you have thieves in your household who secretly steal sweets from the fridge? Or does your partner always eat your favorite yoghurt without asking? Then you should take a closer look at this practical gadget: the Lockabox, a hygienic and lockable box for food and medicine.

Especially when you store medicines in the refrigerator, it is important that they are made out of the reach of children and the elderly. Unfortunately, only very few refrigerators have a lockable device for storing medicines.

The Lockabox for around 30 euros offers a safe storage method for medicines.

The transparent box is provided with a three-digit code and allows access only to people who know the number combination. For more privacy, the box can also be ordered in a black or gray design.

If you don’t need to store any medication, you can alternatively use the box for the safe storage of sweets or valuables such as jewellery, game consoles or mobile phones.

The Lockabox One is currently on sale at the online retailer Amazon for a reduced price of 29.70 euros and has been rated 4.6 out of 5 possible stars by customers: “I bought this box for the bedside table to keep my headphones, tablet, watch and to block other things. Things are within reach and still childproof. The transparency allows you to see what’s in the box at a glance. The box is light, has a simple design and can be used in many ways. Fits in almost every room,” writes one customer.

Another buyer writes: “Very stable and easy to clean. The numeric code is easily set/adjustable. Of course, the box doesn’t protect against rabid attacks, it’s not a safe either, but it does keep small (and large) sweet toothers from gorging on the candy supply in one day. Also good for storing medicines that need to be kept in the fridge, etc., which should be protected from children’s hands.”

If you just want to lock away smaller things in your household that don’t need to be put in the fridge, you can alternatively simply use a cash box. It usually works with a conventional key, which you should keep in a safe place.

At Amazon you can find such a box for less than 10 euros.
