Hook-and-eye closures on closet doors?

The Office of the State Fire Marshal will allow hook-and-eye closures only if the mechanism is well out of reach of children and there are no immediate means that would allow a child to reach it.

The State Fire Marshal's Office plays an important role in issuing licenses for child care providers, even though the Kansas Department of Health and Environment is the state agency that actually licenses child care providers. If you're not sure what type of license you need to apply for, please visit the website of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
