Helps prevent "escapes"
This product works wonderfully. I was a little worried at first, because it would not fit around the door handle like it was shown on the directions (the end of the handle was too close to the door), but after searching online how to remove the door handle, it was a breeze. It might be a good idea to include that in the instructions, however. I would recommend it!
I use this on my doors to keep my little one from opening them and I can say this product is the bomb. She can't open the doors that this product is on and I feel like she is safer.
this works perfectly for that type of doorhandle
This works perfectly for that type of doorhandle to keep my grandson safe from opening the door which leads to stairs.
Opening and closing is hard
Opening and closing is hard
I ended up taking these back. I didn't realize when I ordered them that you have to stick them to the door. They have adhesive on the back, and I didn't want to do that. They are also really expensive, but there are no other options that I could find for this kind of door handle. I ended up just using baby gates.
It would be fabulous if it actually worked on an interior door but it does NOT. It is so bulky around the hardware base of the lever and because there is no cutout where the door frame meets the door it will not allow the door to close. This is not user error. It will only work on the inside of an exterior door, which is completely useless. The deadbolt does a better job. Cannot find any other lever door safety latch available. I have one we bought years ago for a different home, it works because there is a cutout for where the door meets the door frame. Major design flaw.
In theory a great idea
Poorly designed. Double stick tape comes loose from door after 1.5 days. Returned 3 unused products due to faulty design.
Was very excited to find a safety lock for lever style door knob as we have a 3 year old grandchild who loves to slip outside when your back is turned! However, this only is held in place by 3M tape on the back and it fell off the first time I tried it and I left it in place for almost 24 hours before trying it! I did not use much pressure at all when trying to open the door either! I sadly had to return it to the store. I would not recommend this at all.
Comes right off the door. Doesn't work
Great design, but it doesn't stick the the doors. Tried on wood, stained front door, as well as painted metal door to garage and standard hollow core doors (wood, painted). Came off each one after a few uses. Definitely returning! So disappointed.
Comes off easly and does not stick well.
This is an ok product! I wish it stuck a bit better. It kept falling off of my door, so I ended up super gluing it. It still fell off a couple months later but by then my little one was used to not being able to open the door. Other than it not being sticky enough, I thought it was great. Easy enough for adults to use and too complicated for little ones to figure out. I was worried that if it was locked and we left that it would lock us out of the apartment, but if you used the handle on the opposite side of the door, no matter what it was on, you could open the door.
Horrible - please avoid
If you don't ever need to remove it, or worry about being on the other side of the door, then this product might be for you. For the rest of us... 1. Even when it is in the unlocked position it can still prevent the door from being opened on the other side. The device prevents the opposing handle (at least ours) from fully turning to disengaged the door latch. Be sure you're not on the other side of it when you're home alone. 2. After working for about 45 mins to remove it I'm taking a break to write this review. I'm maybe half done getting the adhesive residue off the door. I'm using goof off and serious elbow grease and it is proving daunting. So just plan on never removing it. Or don't put it on a nice door. Other than that it works.
Completely worth the money for the peace of mind that my little one can't get into certain rooms/closets! Very easy installation!
I installed it on my bedroom door, following the directions to the t, including the super cleaning. After it was all said and done I left the door alone for nearly 36 hours. The product worked great, for about three weeks, then it started coming off. After a month my 18 month old pulled down on the know and the whole thing popped off. We're in a rent house and I was really excited, and loved it while it worked, it's just a shame about the adhesive.
We have a lever handle to our basement and our 2.5 year old figured out how to lock it-- NOT cool when you're downstairs and he beats you upstairs. We tried this product and while it doesn't help with the locking part, he has left it alone now because of the lock. We showed him that only Mommy and Daddy lock it and it seems to be working. It was easy to install and it's been useful. It took awhile to get used to the thought that red = open and green = locked, but we are used to it now!
Great product good quality
This worked perfectly for us. We have a 2 and 3 year old so as you can imagine...I can now rest.
Easy to use
Great way to keep my very active toddler from being able to run outside while I cook or do laundry.
