The Lindam pack of six child safety catches are simple to install catches that fit (somewhat discreetly) inside cupboards or drawers to prevent young children from gaining access. The design is very simple and basic - which is usually the best way with things like this. It's just a sturdy plastic latch that is trapped by a solid plastic 'block' catch. To gain access, the adult simply slides their hand inside the cupboard or drawer and pushes the latch section away from the block section, then pulls the cupboard door or drawer open.

Fitting the safety catches is pretty darn easy. I fitted three into our kitchen in around 15 minutes (which included removing the old ones). All you need to do is screw the catch section into the inner-cupboard side, line-up the latch to ensure it fits snugly when locking, mark out the placement and then screw the latch onto the inside of the door. Simple! However, you will require drilling guide holes first. Incidentally, the instruction leaflet instructs you to drill 3mm guide holes. This would no doubt be fine, but I opted for 2mm holes instead, to ensure that the screw 'bit' into the wood from first contact (for extra grip and overall strength). Perhaps this is a bit over-the-top, but it's what I would do!

Now then, on to the important bit - their overall performance. We purchased these Lindam safety catches to replace the existing Mothercare ones that had been installed by the previous homeowner. The old ones had become completely useless over time, solely due to the increased flexibility of the latch section that gradually allowed the doors to be forced open with little strength at all (see the attached video). We have 15 month old twins and they both can easily pull open these thinner old safety catches.

fitted easily and been using a while now and still going strong. I wonder if I will ever open a cupboard and remember they are there though - forget every time!!!

Teeny tiny screws make these fiddly to install but they are more flexible than the clippasafe ones we used initially. A more rigid plastic, the clippasafe variety, snapped after in-laws tugged at cupboards unwittingly and son determinedly! These are easier to open (as a grown up) and are coping with tugs much better - they seem to be less fun to tug at too as they aren't as noisy with being less rigid. The two days we were without catches whilst we waited for delivery resulted in a smashed food processor bowl and handfuls of snaffled raisins. A worthwhile investment!

I bought these based on the positive reviews, but unfortunately they didn't work for me.
Because my work surface protrudes over the kitchen cabinets, there was not enough room to mount these on most of the larger lower kitchen doors that we wanted to childproof. You would not be able to open the door far enough to reach the catch. There was also a problem with the kitchen sink cabinet where the sink itself meant there was not enough depth to fit the catch - and close the door. Impressive that it could be both too short and too long at the same time!
Also we felt there was a bit to much play to stop fingers getting caught in drawers.

I'm going to go for the magnetic option - but will buy just one to make sure they are suitable first!

They probably would be fine in most situations.

I installed these catches in our 3-drawer office type pedestal to protect stationary (pens, scizzors, tape, etc..) from our 16 month old boy. He liked to open the drawers and empty their contents on the floor. I fitted the catches and we could not keep from laughing when we watched his fruitless attempts to open the drawers! He has lost interest in these drawers after a couple of days.

And we seem to have hit a double as our 4.5 y.o. daughter is not able to get to the stuff in the drawers too!

Installation is fairly straightforward. I would recommend to pre-drill the holes to let the screws go in easier and for extra precision.

If the child is clever enough to find a way to open these catches it is always possible to install catches on both left and right sides of the drawer. The child will have to use both hands at the same time to release the catches and it can be tricky enough for him.

Really poor product. I bought catches from Mothercare many years ago and they were still working well 10 years later before we sold our house. Needed to put new ones in at new house (I work as a childminder) and in the two days since they've been in place, 3 have snapped. My 10 year old managed to break 2 of them and one broke as my husband was installing it. I also don't like that you can't 'turn them off' as our old ones could be and you have to push the catch in in order to shut the cupboards doors too. Don't waste your money.

Slightly tricky to install -- has to be just so in order to both allow opening and catching -- but does the trick once you've managed it. Possible but not terribly convenient to use one-handed. Our toddler eventually figured out how to unlock them, but it's still too fiddly for him to bother most of the time.

Bought these branded catches after having a cheaper set that broke easy. Not much better, one has already broke after 1 month and they were also quite difficult to line up to make them catch properly
