Saving Children's Lives Through an Innovative Door Lock

Share Article

EA Engineering Concepts, LLC, a Florida company founded by two Gulf Coast inventors, Eddy Kames and Albert Tejera, has designed a simple new safety device to protect children, particularly in homes with pools.

Dubbed the Father’s Strength Child Safety Lock, the product is a lock device which can be easily attached to virtually any door. It can only be opened by an adult, preventing young children from accessing busy streets or pool areas without direct adult supervision. The lock does not require a key, making it easy for an adult to open in an emergency.

With the Father’s Strength Child Safety Lock, adults are able to electromechanically control the locking and unlocking of any standard house door by mounting it on the door inside the house at a selected height greater than the reach of a young child and above the existing manual door locking mechanism.

The inventors point out that according to recent studies, Florida has the highest drowning death rate in the US for children ages 1-4 years and in children under age 5, swimming pool drownings are most common.

Kames and Tejera have product development backgrounds and have spent many years designing and engineering commercial products in the medical and general industrial industries. In a special collaboration which began with a series of prototypes they now finished Phase I of product development with a completed design and a patent pending. “We have families of our own, and we wanted to bring a product to market which could actually save children’s lives,” said co-inventor Albert Tejera.

The creators hope to be able to manufacture and sell the product directly, or license the design to other companies for broad distribution depending upon Phase II financing.
