Childproofing a Trash Can

This is something that has been bothering my husband and myself for a little while now, how in the world do you child proof a trash can? My almost 18 month old empties my trash cans and carries the trash around the house. I got so tired of picking up trash each and every day I started putting my trash can in the sink so it would be out of reach, pathetic I know. But I just found a better way to keep her out.

Here’s what you need:
Trash can with a built on hinged lid (you can get them from any where for pretty cheap)
Adjustable Locking Strap* See list below for places that sell this item.

Directions: Clean and thoroughly dry area with alcohol before attaching strap, place on front of can opposite of hinge. Lock. Good Luck! :o

*The Adjustable Locking Strap is adhesive mounted. Strap extends to 8 1/2″ long, and can be trimmed down if desired. Latch is easy opening for adults but difficult for kids. Comes in White or Charcoal colors. One per package.
