1.0 out of 5 stars Woefully Substandard and Potentially Dangerous, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is woefully substandard in manufacture and positively dangerous in its impact. There are a number of problems with it:

1) The cupboard catch is extraordinarily flimsy. The horizonal part of the catch is attached to the vertical only by two 1mm joins. Even modest pressure leads it to break. It is thus useless.
2) The positioning system is unsuitable for the vast majority of applications. The tab system requires you to position the catch at the outer edge of the cupboard or drawer housing. Most cupboards and drawers on free-standing furniture and many kitchen units have recessed stops, so that the drawer face or cupboard door sits flush to the housing edge. In order for the door or drawer to close one then has to disregard the tab system and position manually. This is imprecise and requires adjustment and repositioning of both latch and catch. Such repositioning severely compromises the adhesive strip - again, leaving the lock useless.
3) Even when left to harden for 24 hours on a clean and flat surface, the adhesive strips are relatively weak. In time they loosen. Again, compromising the function of the lock.

A cupboard or drawer lock that is open to failure in so many ways is clearly not fit for purpose. More worrying still is the potential for injury that comes with this malfunction. A malfunctioning lock is probably more dangerous than no lock at all. If you do not have a lock on your cupboard or drawer, you would not permit your young child to play with or near the furniture. Having a lock might well mean you permit your child to play near the furniture, pull on the handle, or pull themselves up by holding onto it. When a lock malfunctions at this point, injury is likely. This product lulls both child and parent into a false sense of security. It thereby makes injury more likely than having no lock at all. Frankly, the manufacturer cannot be ignorant of these weaknesses. They are therefore negligent in their basic duty under the sale of goods act, providing a product that is not fit for purpose; but are also deliberately and consciously selling a product that places children at risk of injury. That is simply immoral.

This is a despicable con - as other reviewers note, this is only a short extract, not the complete commentaries. I wish I had read reviews before purchasing. This much of the text is easily available online, and should not be exploited for personal profit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Weaning Dream, 21 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having gone through 2 regular plastic ice trays I purchased the above tray - having read all the reviews. I've not been disappointed!! It's easy to use and you are able to cook in bulk which is a definite plus. The food once frozen is easily removed from the trays with no water or much force needed. The is easily washable and cleans up a treat. Definitely makes making your own baby food much easier. It does come with a black solid tray to keep the mould steady in the freezer. Very helpful indeed.
