    Default Fridge lock that actually works?

    I have tried several fridge locks (just the types you buy from bunnings) and none have worked. My kids have simply broken through them all. It is becoming a nightmare for me as they keep helping themselves to the fridge (they are well fed so it's not out of hunger), whenever my back is turned they are in there - they have split whole cartons of milk, cracked eggs, thrown food all the floor ruining it, eaten whole punnets of strawberries etc. I can not afford to be continuing replacing food and i'm sick of cleaning up the messes. I can't keep raw meat in the fridge ever because i don't trust them not to try and eat it (they can reach every part of the fridge). I have tried teaching them to stay out but that's just a big joke to them.
    I"m going crazy, please help.

    I used silver duct tape up high. One piece lasted a few days then I'd replace it.

    I used the one posted above and it didn't work.

    I went to bunnings and got a strap that you clip in.
    It's like a pram clip and you have to push both side in at the same time to unlock it.
    I cleaned the area, stuck it on over night so I knew it wouldn't be used for 12 hours and over a month in its still working. Best one I've ever used.
