Motorhome locksStgrayWas looking for a latch system for the drawers on my malm dresser for travel locks. Haven't been on a trip to fully test will report results laiter.5
Best ones aroundNadyGOver the years we be used countless safety latches for our children and grandchildren. These are my favorite. Easy to install and much more efficient at keeping tiny hands from unsafe places.5
Work okNickiefraustoI bought these to keep my 18 month old out of our drawers. Unfortunately they are so long that he can still reach in and pull stuff out. He can't open the drawer all the way, but still not totally effective.3
Great value.ndrndrThese work. They're less than two bucks. Not hard to install. They may not work for every drawer and cabinet, but they've worked for every one I've tried.5
XiomaryThe hook is very long. Send a little shorter1
Not Suitable for our ikea kitchen drawersGGlundOur toddler started getting into ikea kitchen cabinets so we thought these would be universal but these do NOT work for under sink double door cabinets. These do need to be drilled in and require 2 attachment sites: long piece for door + short/lock piece for a “side” wall. Because it requires a side wall these won’t work for: pullout drawers, under the sink/ swing out double doors. Also, ikea should come up with a solution that does NOT need to be drilled in for when children get older.1
Works greatAlphaWolfPackYou really can't beat it for the price! They work great. 4 stars only because it can be a little pain to install on certain drawers or carbinet angles.4
When your child feels like exploring the contents of cabinets and drawers PATRULL drawer/cabinet catch puts a stop to all attempts. But it's easy for grown-ups to open - all you do is press lightly on the latch.
