If you don’t have a lock on your medicine cabinet, use one of those birthday cards that makes noises!
First start by opening the card to reveal a speaker.
Once everything is exposed, cut the tab leading from the circuit board to the other side of the card. Cut this tab on the opposite side of the circuit board.
Once the tab is cut, remove the speaker and board from the paper slowly to avoid ripping any wires or breaking any of the electronics.
Once you have the components from the card removed, head over to your medicine cabinet and apply some adhesive inside the cabinet to hold the board and speaker in place.
After you have applied the adhesive inside the cabinet, put the board and speaker inside the cabinet.
Next push the trigger all the way into the board and apply some tape on the exposed end of the tab.
Then close the cabinet door slightly and tape the tab to the inside of the door.
