This product is great! We have been keeping our bathroom door shut because we didn't want to spend thirty dollars on a toilet lock, so when these came out I picked them up. The adhesive works great on our toilets; we haven't had a problem at all. When you close the toilet the arm swings back and clicks in place so there are no accidents if you forget to lock the toilet. You need to make sure that your toilets are clean and dry otherwise you may have trouble getting them to stick. I cleaned our thoroughly and had no problem. These are 100% worth the money. And if you don't like them babies'r'us always let's you return them I have never had a problem returning safety products I found didn't work. Oh and they took me about 5 minutes to install per toilet!

I hated this product. The installation was okay, but like others mentioned, the seat did not go all the way up. However, it seemed good enough and I figured if I tried to re-position it, the sticky part would not be so sticky anymore and not stay secure. It does keep a child out but it requires 2 hands for an adult to open and gets very annoying. We then had plans to move to a new house and when I tried to remove them, it took the paint off the wood toilets seats. I had to replace all my toilet seats, very frustrating. When we moved to the new house I found a new brand I ordered online called Lid-Lok made by Mommy's Helper. This new one is excellent. Less expensive, keeps kids out, works one-handed for adults, and you can leave it unlatched if guests are coming. Also removes from the toilet easily should you want to take it off completely. I recommend everyone I know to this new one made by Mommy's Helper. I wish it was sold in stores.

A little difficult to use, but does the job

About Me First Time Parent
Comments about Safety 1st Swing Shut Toilet Lock:
We have a small, 1 BR condo (1 toilet). It was semi-annoying to install, but I got it right first try. I'm guessing if you install it correctly, then the toilet seat will NOT come down When the lid/s are up. My toilet seat has never fallen down because of this product. It's a little difficult to get the toilet seat open (I almost always have to show my company how to use it/open the toilet for them), but I have never ever seen my daughter actually get the toilet seat up. It works well in that regard. Only worry I may have is how the toilet looks for my landlord when we move out and remove it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sending it back!
By Mother of twins
from Salt Lake City, UT
This was easy to install. The promblem is that I have twins. They worked together and ripped it right off the toilet. It took some effort, but they did it! I'm sending it back.

We bought this lock to keep our toddler out of the toilet. It does it's job, however, if you want to sit on the toilet the seat will keep coming down and rest on your back. Not good for potty training! It discourages my child and she won't sit there anymore. Will be buying a different one that's not so bulky when I get a chance. Also, men, you'll need one hand on the lid if you want to be able to use it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
3 years and still going strong!
We installed on both toilets over 3 years ago and they held up great against two super curious, wild little boys. While they have required many a tutorial to visitors, it is easy enough that my oldest, who is now potty trained, can easily manage it himself. I have no idea what is going on with the people who said theirs fell off, I am slightly concerned that they won't come off when I don't need them anymore - they are on there pretty hardcore!
from Tampa, FL
It doesn't stay stuck to the toilet seat and it seems easy enough to unlock by pulling hard enough. Will be returning.

Lines up correct but is very cheap and my son was able to loosen it up and eventually a guest who didnt understand how to open it easily ripped it off . it lasted 2 months
Cheap price, Works great.

See all my reviews
It was so easy to install I didn't even need the instructions for help, the only part that I need the instructions for was to learn how to use it. When you turn the handle all the way to the right it will keep the lid to stay up. I love this product it's better than the twenty dollar one.

Great lock but...
By No ma'am!
from Abilene, Tx
This lock worked great. Super easy to install & no problems with lid staying up for a year now. Only reason for 4 stars is that now she's potty training and I can't get it off and the instructions aren't available on the website anymore.

Works great! Tough and very babyproof
By Niko's mama!
from Saint Augustine, Fl
We started with a cheap junky toilet lock and threw that away almost immediately- invested in this one and it is great! Very tough, absolutely babyproofOnly downside is that it is confusing for guests coming over and we have to show everyone the first time, which is really no big deal at all!
