View from the hills

Let's face it, babyproofing your home can be a real pain, but it is about the most important thing you can do to keep toddlers from becoming too adventurous when you take your eye off them. One must consider that "One Time" when you didn't see and something tragic happened. That said, it took me a long time to find a door and drawer lock that could be disengaged when baby wasn't visiting. This is it, and it works beautifully! The locks themselves are made out of plastic and are opened with a strong magnet that disengages the hook part of it. The lock itself is held in place by a sticky glue surface. When baby is not present you can turn the hook part down with your finger so it won't lock. More than one time I jerked my arm when trying to open a drawer that was locked. They do work very well!

Unlike most of the similar items on Amazon, this one comes with an alignment tool to make installation much easier, and screws if you need instead of using the included 3M tape. I have these installed the normal way, and even have one installed on it's side for a corner cabinet and it works great.When I was installing, I noticed while on one of my cabinets that it wasn't going into the locked position. I was able to figure out that the reason why was because there was some kind of ferrous metal hidden in the cabinet to fasten it together. If you use the included magnetic key to check the area first, you should have no issue, I moved mine only about an inch and it works fine now.I would not attempt to use this on any metal cabinet (at least anything with ferrous metal, i.e. iron, steel) as the contacts in the unit themselves are magnetic and can keep the unit from locking.

I’m a service provider for GooGooProof-Childproofing Services in the greater Seattle area. I selected this product after looking at several brands. The criteria I used for selection was safety of design, proper function, packaging, and price.- Very beautiful design with rounded edges to prevent injury if contact is made with the latch while the cabinet’s open. The action is smooth and there’s a switch to disable the latch when not needed. This device will add value to the future sale of your home.- Can be installed with 3m sticky surface or screws. Many brands do not have this choice.- Each 12 pack of latches comes w/ 2 mags for about 20 bucks: a great value.- They come neatly packaged in a slender box 4”x4”x9”. I like not having to have sharp knife for cutting open plastic containers. The container itself can cut me or the knife.- 2 installation tools come w/ each set. The included instructions could be more clear but there are links to videos demonstrating installation.- In summary this product is very well designed, well made, well packaged, and a good value.

 I have been looking for magnetic baby locks for months that don’t require screwing into your cabinets. These are great! I just installed them today. My whole kitchen took about 20 minutes. The 3m tape on the back is so sticky! I could not be happier!Side note: there are screws included if you want to go that route.

I purchased and installed 2 sets of these cabinet locks (24 total) to keep our very active (fully walking), and curious 10 month old grandson out of our cabinets. He loves to pull on handles and knobs. These locks work well, but it's worth noting a few things:1) I recommend using the magnet key to check for any metal bits in drawer faces and doors prior to installation. If the lock is installed too close to metal that's on the surface, or buried inside of a drawer face or door, the locking mechanism won't engage because the magnet inside the lock will be attracted to the metal, preventing the lever from popping up and snagging the catch. I ran into this problem during my install, even though I installed the lock away from the metal handle and screws. After removing the metal handle and screws from the drawer face, I still experienced the issue. However, if I removed the lock from the drawer face and operated it while holding it in my hand (as a test) it worked fine - the lever would pop up when the magnet key wasn't applied. I finally determined that there were small bits of metal buried inside the drawer face (probably small woodworking nails/staples), and confirmed it by using the magnet key to move along the wood, feeling it being pulled in various places. I simply moved the lock to a different location away from where I felt the pull on the magnet, and that solved the problem.2) The 3M adhesive is strong and works well. I didn't need to use the screws. If you mess up, you can try prying the entire lock or catch off the cabinet surface, rotating it away from the surface while applying substantial force. In my case, I was able to pry the lock and catch off and reapply them using the original 3M adhesive, without damaging anything. Every situation is different, so use caution. If you think you might damage something, you can use dental floss to slice through the 3M adhesive strip, remove the lock/catch, then peel the remaining adhesive off the surface, and apply either a spare adhesive strip provided, or get some double-sided foam tape from a retailer (Target, Home Depot, etc), and reapply.3) If you have inset doors, you can use the locks by first attaching 3/4 inch square dowel cut to length (about 3 inches) behind the top header of the door frame (you can attach it using double-sided foam tape available from various retailers such as Target, Home Depot, etc). You can purchase 3/4 inch square dowel rods from Home Depot for about $3 (36 inch long rod), and ask them to cut several 3 inch lengths for you using their power saw. See first pic for example.4) They're difficult to use with drawers that are narrow or shallow (e.g. a small bathroom vanity). In that case I went with black Command picture hanging strips instead, which worked well (see last pic).
