Questions & Answers


Will the sticky tape leave residue on the door once removed? Or remoce paint?

Asked by Ryan December 19, 2020

Hello. We would not expect this to remove paint, however, the adhesive can leave behind a small amount of residue once removed. However, this can be wiped down with a damp cloth and mild dish detergent/soap as needed.

How do you remove the outsmart lever ha file lock when no longer needed/or moving to new home?

Asked by LFlo January 2, 2019

Thank you for your question. The OutSmart Lever Handle Lock is attached with adhesive. To remove the adhesive you may use a blow dryer to warm/loosen the adhesive then use a piece of dental floss to slide between the adhesive and the door to break the seal. After removing, you may use warm sudsy water to remove any remaining residue.

How do you prevent locking from outside while you are in the room?

Worked perfectly to keep my one year old from opening the bathroom door, but still lets my 3 year old get in if nature calls. I am curious how I will get it off the door when he gets old enough. WARNING: Don't enable this lock if you are going IN the bathroom, on my handle it won't let you out.

Great to install, hard to remove
This lock was very simple to install and was able to keep my very smart 2 year old from opening doors. However, now that he's 4 and we no longer need it, it is impossible to remove. There are no videos or instructions anywhere about how to remove it. Luckily I only put them on 2 doors in the house and not all of them.

Good idea, but hard to use one handed
We installed this on my son's closet door because it opened into the closet & not outward into the room. Door needs to be completely shut in order to work. You need both hands to open the lock. With our lever handles, the lock needs to be fully disengaged. I think it would work really well on slimmer handles.

Fantastic door lock for sneaky toddlers
This product is fantastic for keeping our sneaky 3yr old from secretly escaping into the backyard. Our front door is sticky and heavy, plus it has a deadbolt but our backdoor can be easily opened by our little backyard runaway. This lock took 2 seconds to install and she has not figured out how to open it. The fake button on the bottom is so smart, our toddler constantly presses it!

My 3-year old twins have finally gotten tall enough to unlock the doors. We put chains and other locking devices on the doors high enough for only adults to undo. The toddlers solved that dilemma by pushing the chair to the doors and removing the chains.... I was thinking of fencing in the house.... Then my husband found this little device! It has been 2 month and they have not been able to open doors! Some adults may have trouble with this one too (for the first few days) and it also acts as a deadbolt. Great for securing your doors.

This is a great deterrent for my 104 year old mother who thinks she can go for a walk. Jokingly I say we are toddler proofing our home. It works well and it looks good. Great product.
