Questions & Answers

Q:Can I use this on my dryer door to keep it from popping open
by|Feb 23, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  It may prevent it from opening wide open, but I would think since it's practically impossible to attach it in a way that's too tight, it may still open the dryer door slightly which will allow heat to escape. It's probably not recommended. You need to fix the dryer door latch.

    A:  Hello, thank you for your question. The Multi Purpose Appliance Latch is not tested for use on dryers. Using this would be at your discretion. We would recommend checking for our other Home Safety Products.

      A:  No

      by|Oct 26, 2021

        A:  I haven't tried to reuse it. It is definitely inexpensive enough that I would buy a new one on a new fridge. 2 come in the pack.

        A:  Hi Excaliber. I removed and re-positioned one of these after a few days to make its placement more convenient. I don't know how good it would stick after being uses for several months. For the price, I would get new ones.

          A:  It'll work. However I used this for cabinets for my kids who were under 2 years old. So they couldn't figure out how to unlatch, but an older person can figure it out. So you might need to find a latch that you could put a lock on. I hope that helps.

          Q:Is this good to use to keep toddlers out of cabinets and drawers? What would be a way to strengthen the adhesive?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello. Yes this lock is designed to deter toddlers/younger children from getting into cabinets and drawers. To make sure the adhesive bonds strongly, make sure to properly clean and dry the surface before applying the lock

          by|Jan 5, 2023

            A:  Yes they are!! I bought brand maybe 3 weeks after this one and definitely this are better.. The adhesive is pretty good so no need to get another different from the Package

            by|Feb 4, 2019

              A:  Definitely, Rell. As far as the adhesive, just make sure that you clean the area where it will be applied first. I used rubbing alcohol to remove any wax or grease first.

              A:  It will prevent a toddler from just pulling the cabinet or drawer open. However, the lock isn't that complex. You just press the button/tab to pull it out to unlock. The adhesive tape comes already attached to the strap and lock. It's fairly strong on my refrigerator. I've pulled on it a few times (forgetting it's locked) and haven't ripped away the adhesive. Be sure to clear the surface before attaching.

              by|Feb 19, 2019

                A:  This product is good for drawers and cabinets that don't have handles, but rather have knobs. It kept my little one out when he was a baby, but now that he's almost three, he just yanks at it a bit hard and the adhesive comes off. I don't know about strengthening the adhesive. Now if you do have handles for your cabinets and drawers, the following: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Safety-1st-Double-Door-Decor-Slide-Lock-2-Pack-HS170/203754394 is a great product. Even now my little one can't get anything open with that on. Thanks.

                    Does what it's supposed to do
                    I bought these for my cabinet doors because my cats like to dig through the cabinets at all hours of the day. It drove me crazy and the finally straw was when one of them decided to start opening my dry goods and ripping them open, wasting them. So I bought these in hopes to stop this behavior whether I'm at home or not and it has worked. No longer can they open the cabinets that I don't want them to and it isn't complicated to lock and unlock when I need to get something from the cabinets. It's a little time consuming, by like maybe 3 seconds but it's worth over having my dry goods being destroyed. I've had these for about a week and they are holding up well to them trying to pry open the cabinets, and my cats are fairly large and strong, so this is truly a life saver to me. I definitely would recommend and I would definitely buy again and even more if needed.

                      Would DEFINITELY buy again!!!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Although I was aware of this product I had never tried it or anything like it, I resorted to duct tape because thats what I had on hand, and duct tape leaves a sticky mess compared to these straps. I would definitely buy these again! It was very easy to install, just pull the piece off covering the sticky portion like a band-aid and stick it where you want it. I used it on my dryer because my door latch was broken and I though this would be perfect! It would keep my door shut and the kids out! Plus every time I did a load of laundry and was using the duct tape I had to put a new piece or multiple pieces on every time and it left all the stickiness behind. This strap however doesn't have to be replaced every time and when it comes time to take it off and or replace it, I will only have to deal with two much smaller areas that could possibly leave a sticky residue. Very happy with this product and will be buying and recommending to friends.

                        Very strong and easy
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My kids have this bad habit of getting into the fridge and eating everything in sight before it's time to go shopping again. These are like seatbelts for the appliances! My kids can work them BUT if you put them up high enough, they can't reach them. The peel and stick adhesive is super strong and it didn't leave any residue on my appliances when peeled off. I don't think there's any way someone could break these. If you have a fridge-freezer side by side, I recommend putting the latch on the freezer and the strap on the door. I really wish I had found these sooner ☝☝ They'd work perfect for cabinets, toilets, dishwashers, etc...

                          The Toddler Stopper!
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been looking for a solution to our cabinets under the sink and this definitely solved the problem! As we all know toddlers are masters at getting in to any space and mine is no exception! We store a lot of chemicals and supplies under the sink in our kitchen so definitely want to keep those out of our exploring toddlers hands. We tried traditional cabinet locks that mount inside the door and the frame but we found that these did not catch well and often the mighty force of our toddler pulling allowed him to get them open anyways. We also tried a bungee cord however this was difficult to loop and, given the frequency we go in and out of this cabinet, it was not conducive to our needs. This latch was able to be installed quickly and even adjusted once before firmly pressing in to place. It stayed in place even with my force pulling on it. The latch connection makes it very easy to click and unclip or reclip as needed to get in to whatever you are latching. I think my favorite part, since it is under the sink, is that the plastic is easy to wipe down if anything falls on it or it gets wet or generally dirt from being in an area with cooking and food. It has held up very well so far through multiple tugs, yanks, and pulls from a rambunctious exploring toddler so I have zero complaints! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a safety solution for their toddler or for any reason at all.

                                Strong Adhesives!
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a simple design.Easy to apply and easy to use.This has a very strong adhesive that sticks to the surface and has a push lock.Helps keep my almost 3 year old out of my refrigerator.This is better than past similar locking devices I have used because this is easier to apply and use daily without the pieces breaking.

                                  I would buy this product again
                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The concept is good. It's slender and not that easy to open. I wanted these for my dishwasher and washing machine. For my dishwasher it didn't work because the saftey lock was hard to open due to the location of the dishwasher handle and the type of safety lock.I wanted it on top of the handle but it was hard to open where it was and under the handle it was hard to see to open it. I had thought to maybe use it for my washing machine because it's a front loader. It seemed to work better on my washing machine. But it would be nice if it was a tiny bit longer. I have only used one other type of Lock and my kids figured out how to open it. I do think this would be tricky for a little toddlers or babies to figure out how to open. But it wasn't quick and easy for me as an adult either. So for something that you use everyday and this might be a tricky lock to use. But for my washing machine I thought it was handy and would prevent my kids from opening my washing machines.
