  • Easy to install. However, after installation (you all know we forget that it has been installed) I pulled on the doors with my usual force and broke a couple. Jul 25, 2022

  • Got these for grandmas house. Pros, it’s hard to open the doors. Cons, it’s hard to open the doors & you have to push down so hard it’s a hassle for adults also little fingers can get caught. Jul 23, 2022

  • My son hasn’t figured out how to remove them but I am afraid he will soon, but for now it will work. Jun 22, 2022

  • Out of the many different types of cabinet locks we've installed, these are the simplest and easiest to use. Jan 13, 2022

    Installation took a while, but it was worth it. They have kept my toddler out of cabinets for a year so far. Dec 19, 2021

  • These have worked well for us. Occasionally one breaks, but they are pretty affordable, so it hasn't been an issue. Jan 25, 2021

  • Have this product and it still opens up wide enough for baby to get his hands inside and smash it. Kees doors locked without having to replace lock which is a plus Jan 17, 2021

  • We have these and they work good as far as kids not being able to open the cabinets but they can stick theirs hands in the gap and pull things out. Jan 09, 2021

  • Work great to keep kids out. Opens the door a little so a possibility of getting hands squished. Takes quite a bit to break since they are screwed in. Oct 15, 2020

  • Easy to install and my very smart 2yo hasn't figured it out yet! Sep 13, 2020

    These work until your toddler either breaks them from yanking too hard or simply figures out how to press them down to unlatch the hook. Aug 17, 2020

  • I like that these can be hidden however the break really easily. Jul 27, 2020

  • Best product for toddlers. Jul 18, 2020

  • They're quick and easy to install. Get the job done: keep the kids out of places that could harm them. Mar 08, 2020

  • My toddler figured these out within a week. Save your money. Jan 16, 2020

  • Easy to install and protects our very adventurous son from getting into too much trouble! Nov 28, 2019

  • These are good BUT beware! If you have a drawer directly above the one you're installing the latch to, it will not work! We learned this the hard way. Sep 30, 2019

    I used these with my first child and it was a waste of time and money. She was able to figure them out in no time. Sep 25, 2019

  • Does not work well at all...will not stick to cabinets what so ever and hard to get into place. Please don’t waste your money! Sep 25, 2019

  • Worked great keeping the kids out of the cabinets. relatively easy to install and easy to use. Sep 04, 2019
