I love these locks! I’ve had the same “old fashioned” locks on my cabinets for the last 7 years and many of them are slipping and are no longer effective. These locks are a quick and easy replacement. I’ll admit the first set I installed required a few adjustments but once I figured out the placement, the rest were super easy.
Pros: *Goes on without any tools. Just take the backing off the adhesive and stick! I recommend sticking it very lightly at first to ensure you have the correct positioning. *Locks have 2 positions: One allows you to keep the cupboards locked (use the magnetic key to open) and the other position allows you to open your doors freely. This comes in handy if your kids will not be around for a little while. *The doors don’t open at all when locked. Now my little one won’t pinch his fingers as he does with the older style locks (which allow the door to open a few inches). *Comes with 2 magnetic keys in case one gets lost
Cons: *I’m a sucker for clear directions, and these directions were very poorly written. However, it only took me about 5 minutes of trial and error to install the first lock. *Lock opens best with the magnetic key. I envision both keys getting lost at some point which makes opening the cupboards a little more challenging. I experimented a little and was able to open the door with a strong magnet. Normal thin refrigerator magnets did not work.
Overall, I am super happy with this purchase! I may get a second set to use in my bathrooms. I enjoy writing quality reviews. If you've found this review helpful, and you'd like to give me some encouragement, please click "yes" below. Thanks!
