I have a few different kinds, and these are our favorites.
I gave this product two stars because it does work to keep my daughter out of our cabinet but it is a pain to get the cabinet open when you want to get into it. You have to take the entire contraption off the cabinet to get inside it.
another suboptimal solution
The other locks (also Safety 1st) we have open when our 19 mo old employs sufficient force. This one does not, but is more cumbersome to open, as one has to push the button up while pulling the plastic strap to loosen it. I still wonder if it is not possible to construct better products which combine both secure closing and quick access for adults (without installing a lock).
These were better than the first kind that I bought, much easier to open and close again and more secure in that the other kind broke right away and my daughter could get in just by pulling hard. However, the "strings" wear down where they rub against the cabinet knobs and over time they eventually snap. These are more baby proof than the cord ones I ended up buying, but I think the other ones will last much longer and I got tired of buying them over and over again as they kept breaking.
it’s good BUT
Great but I wish the cords were a little bit longer. It’s not quite long enough for what I needed it for.
The only thing that worked
I have tried every product out there to keep my (very smart) toddler out of the cabinets. This is the only thing that worked. Yes, it is a pain in the behind for me everytime I have to open the cabinet, because it’s definitely not a one-hand operation, but it is worth the extra effort for the safety it provides.
