About This Product

Curious kids try to get into anything and everything, but the Safety 1st OutSmart Flex Lock helps you keep them out with the first ever decoy button. Your child will think that the decoy button opens the lock, but pushing it has no effect. You'll know that the flexible surface hides the actual secret to opening the lock. It installs easily with no drilling required. The adjustable straps let you get a customized fit for cabinets with hardware up to 8 in. apart and can be used on cabinets with either knobs or handle pulls. For periods of non-use, this cabinet lock hangs conveniently out of the way, but stays close for when its needed again. In side by side comparisons with leading competitors using real life toddlers, the Safety 1st Outsmart Flex Lock was strong enough to keep even the cleverest of toddlers out. Even in lab testing using state of the art mechanical pull force equipment, Safety 1st outperformed the competition. Toddler Tested. Proven Stronger.

Kept my husband out!
My husband and teens couldn't figure out the hidden release! He ended up taking the cabinet door off the hinges to get to the laundry supplies! Works on my 3 yr old as well.

    Worked perfectly for the curio cabinet I bought it for. Decoy button isn’t necessary though. It’s only fooling adults.

    This product is good for places that you open or close occasionally but it not good for frequent use because the spring tends to malfunction and jams the lock

    Good lock, The straps need to be longer to cover a wider spaced handles. Wish you could hide what you pull through the lock.
