Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MWH86 Does what we need it to do. Slightly overpriced for the value
Installing these locks was a bit difficult - in order to line them up right, you almost need a second pair of hands to operate. Other than that, we love how this product keeps our son out of cabinets and they are easy to open with the magnet key.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJsplayschool This product is excellant.
I'm a daycare provider. These locks are a lifesaver. They are easy too install and afford peace of mind. I highly recommend this product to anyone with small children, or doing Daycare. They are cleared with the state for use, in daycare.
Buy an extra key

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bwood Works great. Worth the price
I bought this to "doggie proof" my house. My dog can open any garbage can - so i bought the kind of garbage that goes under / inside the cabinet.
i first tried the kind of child lock that you push down the latch to get the door fully open. My dog figured that one out.
then i went with the outside lock that goes around two cabinet doorknobs. He figured that one out too.
At a last ditch effort before I called the dog whisperer, i bought these magnetic locks. My dog tried, but could not get the door open - and now he no longer even attempts to get into it.
the best thing is that the lock is hidden - plus you can turn it off when you have guests over - so they don't have to deal with the magnetic key.
installation was a little difficult - pre-drilling helped as well as using a pencil to draw where the lock was going to be. I then taped a piece of cardboard to simulate the latch to make sure it was going to catch before i drilled into the cabinet door.
i do wish it came with an additional magnet - it makes me nervous just having one - but thus far, we still have the magnet and our garbage stays tucked away safely from man's best friend.

Excellent product the beauty of these is their versatility. You can turn turn the locks on and off. For years used the cheap plastic ones but they break and they are always on so they ar a hassle 24x7. You can turn the Safety 1st locks on and off with the flick of a switch. More expensive but in my honest opinion well worth the money. Once you get it down installation is a relative snap. I did a combination of about 8 cabinets drawers and doors today in less then an hour. Excellent product highly recommended. Not often can I say that I have endorsed a product like this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey Best Locks EVER!!
I first found these locks 20 years ago when my daughter started to walk and get into everything. I have been recommending them to everyone ever since. I just reinstalled them in a multimedia cabinet to prevent my movies and music from walking out of my apartment with visiting step children. Where I work I get to recommend these to parents/grandparents/daycare providers every day. Since we started carrying them, we can't keep them in stock. In my 44yrs on this planet I've never come across another product that I have recommended for 20yrs or more. The hidden magnet keeps my furniture looking nice and protects my belongings. I would suggest buying a second magnetic key. LOVE LOVE LOVE these locks!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by akgrown tot locks are amazing!
I had purchased these locks about 6 or 7 years ago when I had my first son. Since then we have moved and earlier this year I had another baby. He is at the age where he gets into everything, I remembered how much I love these locks and I had to get them again! I love that no one can tell that I have baby locks on my cabinets. I have and will continue to recommend these to everyone I know!! Very easy to install

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whiten Does what it supposed to do very well
This is an outstanding product. After our son broke thru the flimsy plastic latches we decided to try these. After trial and error on a couple of cabinets, we got these installed. These work very well. Our son got frustrated after a few tries and gave up. The only downside with this is the install (Requires some drilling). Also, I had an issue with some of the templates, they tore off instead of sticking to the cabinet when you do the pilot holes for the cabinet side, this may be because I had the package open and these had been sitting out for a few months which may have made the adhesive too sticky on one side. Also I went through one cabinet hole with the drill so be careful when you do this the first time, Usually I drill a little bit and then test the lock before stopping. Nonetheless it does it's job and really the only problem is if you lose the lock and have to purchase another, as I did.
