It is clear that an engineer designed this product and that the manufacturers gave it to engineers to test it rather than give it to an average person. The way that the latch needs to be installed in accordance with the angle of the tip leaves for about a .005 degree of error possible. and if you miss it, you'll have to drill more holes in order to make it work. I have not yet found something else that will work, but am looking. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DON'T EVEN CONSIDER THESE, unless of course you have the tolerance of an INJURNEER.

These are extremely difficult to disengage even on the cabinets. I basically have to crush my finger/hand to depress the arm.

The instructions are only about installing on cabinets, nothing about drawers (both in the pictures and in the copy). The packaging still says "for cabinets and drawers" but I am guessing these are really mostly for cabinets.

I am going to try installing one on the side of the drawer, but with normal drawers, you can forget mounting these on the top. I have no way of knowing if that's the intended way to install them since there are no instructions. And the way my cabinets are made i am not even sure this is an option (and my only guide is a photo from a competing product). UPDATE: It is not possible to mount on the side because the arm base is too wide to fit on my drawers and is not designed to mount on the inside cabinet with the catch on the drawer. Of course, I am really annoyed there are no instructions for drawer mounting, because I am wondering if there is a way I have not thought of.

Strangely this is the only brand available in the major chains, but I am on here looking for other options.
Also, my child isn't crawling yet so I have no comments concerning their effectiveness.

I am an engineer, and so I disagree with the previous reviewer's assertion that an engineer designed these things. If an engineer were to have designed them, I would think that they would have worked better than they do.

I do agree that they are designed poorly. We have kitchen cabinets that were installed within the last decade, and as such I assume that they are pretty standard. The latch is too short to get your finger in behind the drawer facing, and as another reviewer indicated, the latch prevents the cabinet or drawer from closing without pressing the latch down. This is dangerous, as one could conceivably inadvertently leave the drawer or cabinet open, allowing the child easy access. I'll be returning these and seeking out an alternative product.

I will say that they are inexpensive, and if you're willing to live with having to push the things down to close the cabinet or drawer, and you have fairly low profile cabinet doors or drawer facings, these might work okay. I do expect that the mechanism would be successful in deterring the little one from entering.

I have not installed on a cabinet door, but these do NOT function on drawers. The tip on the latch, and the tip of the hook both have *slightly* blunted ends, and when the come into contact, they hit (versus slide by one another) stopping the drawer from closing. I've spent 20 minutes making minor adjustments, which have not corrected the problem. The blunt ends are design flaws -- I might be able to sand down all the leading edges, but instead plan on just returning them to the local HD store where I bought them. Ugh, how frustrating.

My daughter has broken several of these. She just pulls on the drawer really hard and the tiny piece of plastic that "locks" the cabinet breaks off. The old design was much better.
