Comments about KidCo Swivel Cabinet & Drawer Lock, 4 ea:
I love these latches! I've tried so many and these are best for anyone who wants to be able to de-activate them when children are not in the house. I'm a grandmother, my grandchildren are with me often (at least once a week), but not all the time, so I don't want to be having to use a latch every single day. Don't need it. With these, I can twist it so that it doesn't engage, or twist again to re-engage it for safety. Super easy to use. Just don't install too tight, or it will be difficult to twist. Pretty strong - no breaks so far and I've been using for over a year. Don't know that I would trust it to secure dangerous chemicals, but great for keeping little fingers out of drawers and cabinets. Doesn't fit ALL drawer types, but most.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
To Install: Phillips or flat head screwdriver and drill required.
Position catch with dotted side up and ribbed lip facing away form you, about 1" from inside of edge of cabinet/drawer frame and flush with front edge. Note: Some drawers may require removal for installation.
Mark pilot holes and drill approximately 1/4" deep. Loosely screw in catch.
Thread hole through hole of mounting plate, so back of hook is flush with dotted side of mounting plate. Position assembled hook and mounting plate on door so it engages catch when door/drawer is opened about 1 - 1 1/2". Mark pilot holes and drill 1/4" deep. Loosely screw in hook and mounting plate assembly.
Adjust height as necessary by sliding up or down until hook engages with catch. When all final adjustments have been made, tighten catch and mounting plate screws.
Some cabinets do not allow enough space for mounting locks in an upright position. In these cases, an alternative installation method is to mouth them on the side of the cabinet/drawer. Follow the directions above so lock operates from side of cabinet or drawer.
To Use: Press down firmly on hook, while opening door/drawer. Automatically locks when closed.
To Operate Swivel Feature: The hook swivels 360° in 90° increments either clockwise or counter-clockwise. This allows the lock to be temporarily disengaged.
