I'm just about at my wit's end with this one. DS is 19 months and one of those super high needs kids who gets into everything. We just can't seem to figure out how to child proof the dishwasher so he can't open it up and surprise us with knives and other goodies. Our biggest obstacle is that it is not installed flush with the cabinetry, the door stick out about 1.5" beyond the cabinets and there's no way to fix this (we tried!). All the strap-style locks are a no-go as well because there is no access to the sides and it doesn't really have sides to begin with. We've even tried plastic zip ties
Gating off the kitchen is also not an option because of our open floor plan.
I've been Googling this for 2 days now and can't find anything that will work for us. Has anyone come up with a DIY solution? We're just about ready to call it quits and install a freakin' burglar bar across the darned thing
