The client is a 10-year old autistic boy and we were asked to provide a means of preventing him opening the fridge. His greatest delight was to get the eggs, crack them, spilling the contents everywhere and then to eat the shells.
A double-sided adhesive tape was found and using this to provide instant ‘grab’, and a polyester resin, a lockable hasp and staple were glued to the fridge. Dummy rivets were fitted to give the impression of a permanent fixing.
The client is not very pleased but his digestive system is much relieved.
