These are simple and that is all we needed. They are a bit difficult to install because 1. the sticky stuff they come with to hold up till screwed does not stay put 2. the screws are hard to twist in. We had to mark the holes and use a drill to make a pilot hole then screwed them in by hand. If you line them up properly they work very well. Could not use on our drawers though because there wasn't enough clearance for our fingers to release it.

We put these on both cabinet doors and drawers. We decided to try these 1st because they were inexpensive and we needed over 20. They were fairly easy to install but time consuming. And within a couple of days our 1 year old figured out how to open these, but even before he figured out how to open them they were quite annoying because when they locked they still allowed cabinets to open about 1-2 inches-therefore alot of banging ensued while my son was trying to open doors.(He soon thought it was a game) My son is always on the move so after about 2 weeks he decided the extra 2 seconds it took to open the doors was too long so one by one he broke them all off.

Ummm...which direction do catches sit?

    • Instructions horrible

    Best Uses

      Comments about Safety 1st Spring & Release Latch - 3 Pack:

      I am trying to install these, but cannot tell from instructions in package which direction to face the catch. To me, it only seems to work with the screw hole loops facing out of the cabinet at the opening and the flat edge facing INTO the cabinet. However, the instructions and pictures on this website seem to show the flat edge facing out. I just do not see how the latch will catch that way, and this site provides no place to clarify the issue. The "downloadable" instructions on the product page provide a web page error. Something this small should not be this hard.

          Comments about Safety 1st Spring & Release Latch - 3 Pack:

          Instructions are terrible. This is the first time I have never installed cabinet latches and this was an incredibly miserable experience. I'm relatively handy as well. Once installed, the first latch broke after about 3 opening/closing. Do your self a favor and get a different product.

            Same problems as previous reviewers. The product is simply very poorly designed and engineered. It does not work as it should. How can a company market such a poor product in 2016 is mind buggling!

                Installation is more difficult than it should be. The catch does not lead the latch down, so you have to manually press down on the spring to close the door, when a simple angled catch would do the job automatically.

                    Comments about Safety 1st Spring & Release Latch - 3 Pack:

                    I installed 1 latch and found the only way to get it to catch was to raise the hook to the point I had to push it down to close the door. Only 1/8", but nogo. The catch is blunt and does not lead the hook down and/or the hook does not have enough angle to lead itself down. Pushing the hook down each time I want to close the door just doesn't do it for me.

                      Comments about Safety 1st Spring & Release Latch - 3 Pack:

                      Seemed like a nice product, until I discovered that it's fundamentally flawed. The latch is angled up too high...so that it requires you to depress it to close the door. If you move the latch lower, it doesn't catch when baby pulls on it. Waste of time.

                      Even the instructions are flawed - it fails to mention that you'll need a drill. Not a problem for me - but I'd be embarrassed to be the merchandiser that put this on my store shelf.

                          Installed as directed and could not even get my fingers behind door to unlatch. They should have made the latches longer in order to get your finger behind the door.

                          These locks are complete garbage. It's a shame because the actual materials used are OK, and they're easy to install, but the design is attrociously bad. It's impossible to adjust so that it latches properly AND also closes without having to push it down (like every other safety lock on the planet). I simply threw them out instead of wasting even more time returning them.

                          Product failure. Broke 3 screws while installing with pilot holes drilled. I have only seen a handful of screws twist break and those that I have seen had massive amounts of torque applied. These broke far to easily and I think that they should either change the mounting hardware or recall the product all together.
