This item would probably be great if it was not so small. It won't fit any of my cabinets. My handles are like 9 inches apart. This will accomodate handles that are max 5.5 inches apart - and they will stretch. 5 inches is probably the max for a convenient daily usage.

I'll add some pictures to demonstrate, but you can use these locks with regular loop handles, not just knobs. Yay! Every cabinet in my house is now baby-proofed.

EDIT: It looks like my pictures got deleted, so I will try to add them again. In the meantime, the way you use it with handles is like this:

1. Make a 2" loop at one end of the cord.
2. Push the smaller latch to the other end of the cord.
3. Run the small latch through both handles.
4. Put the small latch through the 2" loop.
5. You now have the cabinet loosely secured.
6. Tighten the loop so that the small latch can't slip through it.
7. Push the small latch up towards the tightened loop so that it holds the cabinet doors tightly shut.

While the kids are small, you can leave the loop big and just pull the small latch tight against it so that it's easier to open. My two year old has figured out how to get that open, so now I have to tighten it all up.

I was looking for an alternative to the child-locks that require drilling holes into your cabinets when I stumbled across this. I LOVE it and came back to order 3 more sets. It is so easy to use. I told my friends who were skeptical about finding an alternative and they couldn't believe this existed and they hadn't heard about it. One friend in particular has already child-proofed all her cabinets, but hasn't been able to find something to keep her french-door type closet doors locked. After hearing me talk about these, she asked me to order one for her to try on those doors. I also really appreciate the reasonable prices and reasonable shipping cost. The only downside is you wouldn't be able to use this on a single cabinet door. You have to have two doors next to each other with which to tie the string on.

After trying the U-shaped slide lock (Which was too thick to fit behind my cabinet knobs), I tried the Safety First Grip n Go cabinet lock as well as the Safety First Flex-Lock. These other locks not only kept my one year old grand-daughter out, they were both so difficult and frustrating for me to remove that I was tempted to take up swearing! They were both horrible! Then while surfing through Amazon's baby department I stumbled upon these locks. I watched the video instructions and read the reviews from other users. I was so convinced these would work I ordered 9 pairs! I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!! These locks are amazing. They work, and are easy to put on and remove. You can't do them one handed, but I don't even care! I will say that it's VERY important to slide the little button up to 'lock' the cords after your tighten them or the cords will slip apart the first time you try to open the cabinet! The instructions are easy to follow and the video provided is even easier to understand. If I could give these locks ten stars I would!

Honestly, if a rubber band weren't a choking hazard I would use that in place of this. This lock will be easy for a toddler to figure out so it is only used to keep the baby out of the bathroom cupboard where the extra TP is stored. If you're really looking to keep a clever toddler out this is not the lock for you, but it does a great job for less important things and is easy to open quickly.

I was looking to child-proof my house, since my baby will be crawling any day now. I went on to Amazon because I like to see Customer Reviews for items before I buy. I needed locks for my double cabinets under my kitchen sink (where cleaning chemicals are stored) and for the bathroom vanity (that stores soaps and other things babies shouldn't play with). This lock seems perfect for my needs. The adjustable cord lock is great because the cabinets under the sink are one size and the cabinets on the vanity are another size. These locks work great because they are simple, adjustable, easy to use and keep kids out of the cabinets. Definitely recommend because they are easy for adults to open the cabinets when needed but are great at keeping kids out.

I've been holding off on "child-proofing" my kitchen because so much of what I saw required being screwed in or otherwise permanently attached. Finally ordered these recently and they are a huge lifesaver. Keep my toddler out of the no-no cabinets, and keep me from saying "no no" 100 times a day.

This is the simplest lock we've used. No installation required and no damage to cabinets. Easy for adults to use and difficult enough for a child to keep them out, or at least give an adult time to get the child away from the area. I wish there was something this simple for every cabinet in the house! Only works on knobs that are about 6 inches apart or less.

I've tried every cabinet lock out there and they were either not the right size, too hard for me to take off, or too easy for my toddler to take off. These are so simple to use yet impossible for my son to take off. I am getting these for everyone I know with a baby this holiday! I highly recommend it.

Our knob cabinets have the knob further apart than the pic for this product shows. Our knobs are on the panel part of the cabinet door, not the very edge of the frame. These cabinet locks are not long enough to hook ours together. These will only work if your knobs are quite close together. However, they are nicely made and would work well if they fit your cabinets. One other improvement that I wish is that you could pull the rope all of the way out of the lock and put it back in. We have some cabinets with the 'looped' door poll (versus a knob) and I wanted to thread this through them but could not because you cannot pull this apart and put it back together. So these are nice but will ONLY work with knob cabinets that are very close together.
