Rated 1.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Completely USELESS! Break in casual use right after installation. I bought a pack of 7 and the first one broke the first time I used the drawer after I tested it to make sure it was adequately installed. The problem is the "hook" that latches on the catch is so fragile that it an adult can snap it off without even knowing it was there. I don't think you can count on these even keeping a strong toddler out. I installed a second one on the same drawer thinking maybe the first one was an anomaly. It was not. My wife broke it off the same way the first time she opened the drawer. January 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible quality. The plastic breaks with the slightest pull of the drawer. January 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JUNK!!! Do not buy! The PLASTIC latch broke off after first use. Returning today at the Los Angeles location close to downtown on Wilshire. January 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to install, many broke within a day With four screws required per latch, and pre-drilling for each screw, the installation was difficult. Worse is that the latches themselves are incredibly fragile. They broke within a day on the three drawers on which they were installed, and broke in two different places (both the lip that catches the latch, and the neck). After two hours of drilling and installing two days ago, they are now all in the trash and I have to look elsewhere... August 4, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thoroughly not durable Agree with many of the other reviews. Broke 4 within 1st 24 hours after installation. See similar reviews back to 2010. Apparently manufacturer has not learned or modified product. Plastic is way too brittle. November 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3 of 4 broke first day Installed 4 of these on kitchen drawers. 3 snapped in the first 24 hours. If someone pulls on the drawer with very little force, the locking part snaps right off. Waste of time installing them. April 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by These are absolute garbage Just total garbage. Poor design, impossible to install, just garbage. November 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Child Safety Latches For a drawer installation application these latches appear to be quite effective for the price and for their designed purpose. However, they are not quite as easy to install as you may be lead to believe. Slight adjustments in the hardware itself or possibly the drawer frame, as I had to do, may be required. You may also want to be aware that the included screws are better tossed in the trash. November 8, 2010
