Morning All

I found these (https://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Magnetic-Lock-Starter-Set_20962/) last week while shopping in Boots - they are just the job! So anyone pre-reg looking for locks, highly recommend these!

ah thanks for those

I never would have thought of boots for safety stuff before I registered - but have to say then often have things which are cheaper than mothercare and also have some good general locks for things such as cupboards / fridges which are cheaper for def than mothercare

I have had these type of locks since I registered 15 years ago. The finger ones didn't fit where I had my washing machine next to the undersink cupboard.


Worth having a spare key up high somewhere for emergencies. Mine stuck to various tins over the years, put tins away and wondered where the key was :blush: Always had a spare, luckily :thumbsup:

they are really good but you must line them up properly to work right and as Pixie says put a spare one out of reach and dont leave in the cupboard when you close it ! x

I've got the mothercare ones - easy to fit though and boy are they fab! The best locks i've ever had.

Totally recommended.

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

I still have these in the packet - mine say you have to drill the cupboard doors :eek: which sounded a bit scary coz I like my cupboards :panic:

Might get them out and have a read - my current ones keep snapping and then they really hurt when you catch yourself on them whilst getting stuff out of the cupboard :(
