Curious kids try to explore everywhere, but the Safety 1st OutSmart Lever Lock helps you keep them safer with the first ever decoy button. Your child will think the decoy button will let them open the door, but pushing it has no effect. You’ll know that the surface on the sides hides the actual secret to opening the door. The Lever Lock is a clever way to prevent your little explorer from accessing off-limit rooms. It installs easily and can be operated by an adult with a squeeze on the hidden buttons built into the hinge. The decoy button won’t do anything when pushed, but adults in the know can easily open the door. To deactivate the lock when not in use, push the lock arm down until you see the yellow deactivated indicator.
Very difficult to remove. Had to use a heat gun and chemicals to get it off. Ultimately, we ruined our door. Have to take it off to re-stain. This would work great on plastic or steal doors, but I think you would still have a tough time removing the black adhesive from the safety lock. It's a chore for sure...
This is crazy difficult to remove. I had to saturate the back with Goo Gone, and pry with floss, until the floss broke. I then tried to pry with fishing lie until it broke. Both of which cut up my hands, but did make a little leeway. Applied more Goo Gone. Asked my husband to help me. He used a twisting motion on it until it gave way. Then i used a razor blade to get off the residual adhesive and foam. All I can say is I'm happy it's gone.. Whew!
Install Very easy to install. You just peel the backing and stick it on. It was a bit off on our door because the design of our door isn't completely flat but the little bit that wasn't adhesed to anything didn't make a difference. Use It was easy for most people in our house to use. My husband and I had no issues with locking/unlocking. My parents had a harder time. Like other people mentioned, you can lock it without pressing the buttons, so that was an issue once our son was a bit older. During a party, an older guest got locked in the bathroom because he put the lock in place while the door was open and then couldn't pull the lever down when he tried to come out. Removal You'll have to use some hacks. It was easy enough once I used some tricks. I used fishing line to "floss" between the door and the lock. Once the lock was off, the black adhesive backing stayed. I used a blow dryer to soften the adhesive and started at a corner to peel slowly until it was all off. I kept the heat on the entire time so just be careful.
At first I loved this product, but then I realized that if you do not push the lever all the way down, which is easy to do, then it's possible to push it back up without pushing on the side buttons - my 3 year old thinks it's fun to do. The unfortunate result is that I've gotten locked in a room more than once. Luckily my kids have been with me and I have family nearby who could come to the rescue. But there should be ZERO possibility for the lever to be moved the buttons being pushed. MAJOR DESIGN FLAW AND SAFETY ISSUE. SAFETY LAST.
This lock was very simple to install and was able to keep my very smart 2 year old from opening doors. However, now that he's 4 and we no longer need it, it is impossible to remove. There are no videos or instructions anywhere about how to remove it. Luckily I only put them on 2 doors in the house and not all of them.
This product ideally is a great concept BUT is an absolute parents worst nightmare if your 2 year old figures out than the lever can move without pressing the side buttons. My son locked me into the restroom and I was trapped for an hour and a half. I luckly had my cell phone with me and called 911 to get me out as my husband was out of town and we were the only ones home. We have now removed all of these levers so this never happens again!
This product is fantastic for keeping our sneaky 3yr old from secretly escaping into the backyard. Our front door is sticky and heavy, plus it has a deadbolt but our backdoor can be easily opened by our little backyard runaway. This lock took 2 seconds to install and she has not figured out how to open it. The fake button on the bottom is so smart, our toddler constantly presses it!
