Inventors Ryan Tseng and David Krippendorf.<br />
<br />
A chocolate-mad dad has invented a clever contraption to stop weak-willed dieters dipping into the biscuits and crisps.<br />
<br />
David Krippendorf would often ask his wife Jenny to hide junk food in the house so he could try and stick to a healthy diet and resist the temptation to eat it.<br />
<br />
But he was unable to ignore his sweet-tooth and always found himself hunting down the sugary snacks and binge eating.<br />
<br />
Eventually the father-of-one came up with an innovative idea that would keep his favourite treats locked away until after dinner.<br />
<br />
The Kitchen Safe is a plastic container with a lid that locks into place using small prongs for a certain length of time depending on the desired setting.<br />
<br />
To curb his cravings David places cookies, chocolates, sweets or crisps into the box and enters a timeframe from one minute to 10 days to lock them away for.<br />
<br />
The plastic receptacle will only open when the countdown has ended and the only other way to get into it is to physically smash it.<br />
<br />
The Kitchen Safe is currently being listed on Kickstarter, a website where members of the public can donate money to new products and ideas to get them manufactured.<br />
<br />
If it reaches the £19,400 target, David expects it to go on sale before September this year for £18.
