  • Nice locks, but buy backups

    Jan 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, good safety
    Cons: Not the sturdiest locks, break if forced open

    Summary: You put safety covers on every outlet. You strap, tape, wire, mesh, and otherwise "child-proof" almost every item in your home. But how do you childproof your refrigerator, or your oven? These are incredibly difficult items to ... read more

  • Crying Over Spilled Milk

    Feb 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Poor adhesive, lock was easily "outsmarted" by child

    Summary: And yogurt, and leftover baked beans, and ketchup, and anything else my almost-three-year-old can get her hands on. And the less said about The Great Baking Powder Storm of 2000, the better. But the worst part is that all of these incidents occurred ... read more

  • This lock needs some improvement!

    Feb 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Idea
    Cons: Adhesive problems and difficult to use

    Summary: First of all, I have a very curious 18 month old, who can figure out how to break into just about any lock on a cabinet or appliance. I first encountered problems with him opening our oven. So I ran out to purchase an appliance lock. I found ... read more

  • These locks are a must

    Feb 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: prevent burns and bruises
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought these safety locks before my twins were born. I had heard horror stories about children opening oven doors and getting burnt and opening the refrigerator doors and doors shutting on their little bodies. When they were to the age where they ... read more

  • Refrigerator Locks that work and are easy to use and install

    Jan 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, install, cheap
    Cons: none

    Summary: I just bought these locks. It seems there are so many safety features out there for just about everything you own! If you have a baby or toddler who gets into the fridge this will stop them. I have a side by side and I can still open the fridge one ... read more

  • NOT such a good deal!

    Jan 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Don't work,To cheap

    Summary: I have a 16 month old son who at 8 or 9 months started seeing his big sisters and brothers get into the fridge so he decided he would like to do the same. SO i went and bought some of these locks thinking they looks very easy to put together and they ... read more

  • More a Problem then a Solution

    Jan 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: package reads well
    Cons: it doesn't prevent kids from opening the appliances

    Summary: When I saw these in the store I thought my prays had been answered. My 2 year old son (now three) always was opening the refrigerator and pulling things out onto the floor. After repeated attempts at time-outs, warnings and punishment for this, I broke ... read more

  • Try a different brand

    Jan 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong plastic
    Cons: Cheap tape

    Summary: When my 10 month old son began to stand, he found the oven. He decided he wanted to try to open it, so we rushed to buy this lock. It looked sturdy, and well made, and was easy to put on. We placed it on the side of the oven, and my son could no ... read more

  • Don't Bother

    Dec 17, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very limited
    Cons: Hastle to Use, The Lock works for about 5 months.

    Summary: This product is more of a hassle than a benefit. Unless you are leaving your children with a babysitter and are worried that he/she won't be keeping an eye on them, which is another problem entirely, this won't be a good buy. The product is a hastle to ... read more

  • Great idea... in theory

    Jun 17, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: nice idea.
    Cons: Adhesive not strong enough to hold effectively.

    Summary: I thought these would work great. Nope. I installed one and asked my unsuspecting 4 year old to open the drawer. The latch promptly came off of the side. I reaffixed it, making sure I used enough pressure to fully adhere it. Same story. I tried ... read more
