My Review:
I’m really impressed with these baby proofing locks – they’re super for areas that are more difficult to childproof! I have four children, including a very curious and clever toddler, and another baby on the way, and I also have an old house with hard-to-childproof “features.” For example, our kitchen sink is an old-fashioned porcelain cabinet unit, with metal doors in the cabinet portion. So I can’t secure the cabinet under the sink (where most people, including me, like to store cleaning supplies) with standard cabinet locks that are designed to screw into wooden cabinets. These cabinets also don’t have handles that I can loop a childproofing latch through. I was seriously considering supergluing a hasp to the cabinet and padlocking it shut, and then I discovered these locks and decided to give them a chance first.

I followed the directions on the back of the package and couldn’t be happier with the final results. You can adjust the straps to the length you need by trimming the end. Once you have it set to the length you need (I left it as the length it came for my under-the-sink cabinet), you lock the black tab in place – I found it easier to tug up on the end of the strap to slide the tab into the locked position. The 3M foam adhesive tape sticks very securely – the packaging recommends giving the adhesive 24 hours to fully cure, but I was able to tug on the cabinet doors just a few minutes later and the adhesive didn’t budge. Once you have it all installed, you just slide the tab on the other side open to release the lock, and push it down onto the base to re-lock it. And ta-da, no more worries about the baby drinking the dish soap!

The package came with six of these nifty little locks, and there’s no shortage of places they’ll come in handy – locking the oven door, locking the refrigerator, locking the toilet lid… I’m even planning on using one on the door between my toddler’s bedroom and the bathroom as a back-up to the doorknob cover. These locks are terrific, and even if you have wooden cabinets, these ones are MUCH faster and easier to install than other child safety locks/latches I’ve installed before. I haven’t tried to remove them yet (and won’t be for several years), but apparently they’re also easy to remove when you no longer need them just by heating the area where the tabs are attached with a hair dryer for a few minutes.
