Not ideal for lazy susan
By Mom of a curious toddler
from Arlington, MA
I purchased two of these. I used the first on the lazy suzan. Granted, this is a difficult type of cabinet to childproof. But with this product installed, you have two choices: You can open the cabinet 1/4 of the way, rendering much of its contents inaccessible. You can bend back the plastic crosspiece to allow the cabinet to open the rest of the way. It's only a matter of time before that crosspiece breaks from repeated bending.The adhesive also only stayed stuck for a few days. I had to open the second package and re-stick a second bracket. It's held better so far (about a week).There are holes for screws, but no screws come with the kit. I tried using several different types, but with screws in place, the screw heads bulge out enough so that bracket would not latch. Any screw I used that had a small enough head that wouldn't interfere with the latching mechanism, was too tiny to secure the latch (head went all the way through the holes). I think that appropriate screws should be included in this kit.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
This lock works great on cabinets that don't have handles or that are too thick to use the magnetic locks. We mounted them vertically from the top of the cabinet to the "fake drawer front" under the sink, and it works perfectly! Keeps my 1 yr old and 3 yr old out of selected cabinets, yet it provides easy access for adults.
childproof locking strap
from Fort Lauderdale, Florida
About Me Grandparent
I purchased these same type straps for my own children over 20 years ago. I was happy with them then, and happy with them now. No drilling or making holes in cabinets. Keeps toddlers out of cabinets and areas that are not safe. I put them on my lower kitchen cabinets and my bathroom cabinets. Cant beat this product for the cost.
Best cabinet lock I have found!
from Frisco, tx.
I use this product on all of my cabinets that I don't want my children to get into. Especially, the cabinet at the bottom of our bookcase where I keep photo albums and keepsakes. I have tried other brands and styles and this is the only one my children couldn't figure out how to open! They can also be used in drawers!

It took my 2 year olds all of 2 hours to figure out this latch. Great idea but not effective for us.
do not buy for a lazy susan
By L's Mom
from york, pa
Terrible product for a lazy Susan. Broke within 2 days. Cheap plastic construction. Didn't even clasp tightly enough, my 17 mo old figured it out in 2 days.
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback. Please contact our Customer Service Team so we can assist you further.
I recently had to purchase an additional locking strap to replace one that broke (the plastic that goes across). Now I realize nothing lasts forever, but I'd had the original one for only 2 years and did expect it to last longer with a total cost of [$] Because of the construction of our cabinets I had to have it, but was disappointed that the first one didn't last longer.
Totally digging this item.
from Santa Rosa Beach, FL
Finally a way to lock my cabinet without drilling. I tried to install the other kinds of locks and the wood began to split. This cabinet does not have a neighbor to use the outside handle locks. So, my daughter has been in and out of it constantly. This has completely solved my problem and was quick and easy to install. Not sure how long it will be before she learns how it opens though (seems a little too easy to open) as she is now two and is incredibly smart. May also buy these for the drawers in my bathroom. Just wish they came in packs of multiples rather than only single packs.
GREAT FOR SLIDING DOOR CABINETS
By Dreaming of the Beach
We bought these after the actual "sliding door locks" that install on the back slider didn't work to stop our kids from opening up some sliding door bookcases. Our doors' tracks were just far enough apart that the kids could just push the sliding doors open with a bit more pressure than usual.We applied these on the outside of the cabinets: one part on the sliding door and one part on the bookcase frame. The length of strap was great, for the door that slides in front, we trimmed the strap shorter. For the door that slides in back, we needed the length as manufactured to reach both the door and the outside of the deep frame.We also use these to secure the lid on our kitchen trash can. We've never had the adhesive pull off, but we press the adhesive down hard for about 5 minutes per side to make sure it sets. On the bookcases, the locks are stuck to painted wood and glass. On the trash can, they're stuck to stainless steel and the textured plastic lid.We've been using them for about two years with great success. Our older child did manage to figure out the locks a few months before turning 4, but they continue to foil the 2 year old.
Adhesive weak and strap too short
from Sonoma County
Great concept, but did not meet my needs. Adhesive did not stick to my furniture. I know it takes 24 hours to adhere properly, but I could not get it to adhere at all. This could be because I was using it on an antique cabinet that has a slightly waxy finish from years of furniture polish. Regardless, the lock probably would not have worked properly anyway because the strap was too short to reach the distance I needed it to. This strap should be made at least another inch longer to ensure it fits a larger variety of furniture. My locking strap went into the trash.
Lazy Susan Locked!
from Traverse City, MI
This item keeps my toddler out of the lazy susan and keeps his fingers from getting pinched, too. It's also easy to unlock for the adults and can't be easily figured out by an intuitive and curious little boy.
By Mom of M&J
from Bel Air, MD
I love these. got with 1st child who tired to open them a lot and now they are lasting through second child. Install with double sided tape versus screws and drills and they are very durable. Highly recommend!
