Nice in theoryAug 24, 2007
This lock is great in theory. If it clicks into place properly, it will keep your child locked inside, while still permitting entry from the outside. HOWEVER, on my door handles (which look just like the picture's)when you disengaged the lock, pushed the handle down, and pulled the door towards you (to open it), the lever part of the lock would slide towards you and the lock usually didn't automatically reset afterwards (defeating the purpose). It was quite annoying. They do provide foam for the inside to get a better fit, but even using that and stuffing part of a paper towel inside, this kept happening. Eventually, it pulled the top part of the lock (which adheres to the door itself) off the door.
I never review any products, but I felt I should for this one since I bought it based on relatively positive overall reviews.
Too bad there don't seem to be more options out there.
Now to see if I can get a refund...

Works great for us, but may need additional padding inside handle coverJan 03, 2007
By J. Shea
This item has worked very well for us to keep our 20 month old from opening several doors. However, if you have very thin door handles, you may need to tape some cardboard around the handles to pad them up enough to make sure this snaps back into place.
It only took me about 30 minutes to install 6 of these, so I'm not so sure about the other reviewer's comment. We always open these one handed, so that our son doesn't figure out how to open it -- his hands are too small to do it with one hand. If he saw us do it with two, he would probably figure it out!
The reviewers who wrote that this won't work with left-handed doors or who think it will lock you out from the other side are clueless. This item can be used with either side door, when installed on the side of an interior door without a lock it can be set up to allow access to the hole for unlocking a locked door, and it does not lock the door from the other side.

DOES work for left facing handlesJul 11, 2006
By J. Rowan
This has been good product. Excessive jiggling or improper opening "technique" can loosen adhesive, but have been able to readhere. The snap together lever covers can face right or left...you just have to pop out the circular cover and place it on the reverse side (is designed this way to accommodate just this situation--see instructions).

Adult proof NOT child proofNov 19, 2009
By J. Sabean
It took me a good 30 minutes to read and understand how to correctly put this product on my door and took my 18 month old about 5 minutes of crying and ranting to finally realize she could place her hand over the top and bend her knees and her weight would undo all of my hard work - the plastic peice gave way and the door opened. It didn't break so when she closed it it did lock back and make a clicking noise like it promised which only gave her the satisfaction of thinking I bought her a new toy. :)

My almost 2 yr old figured it out in under 4 hours...Jun 28, 2012
By elijah onyango
I got this about a week before my son turned two. I needed a safety lock for our back metal door, and I thought this looked like it might work. My son figured it out in under 4 hours. We still use it, and sometimes he struggles with it, but always figures out how to open it...I'm getting the Door Guardian now to see if it works better...*sigh*
