If you have not all ready heard today, 900,000 Safety 1st Cabinet Locks were recalled today due to 140 reported incidents of children between the ages of 9 months and 5 years old were able to disengage the locks and gain access to the cabinet contents. This is a huge safety issue since the locks are on those cabinets for a reason.
Please see the release by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for a full explanation of the recall.
I had the Safety 1st Cabinet Locks on the cabinets in my master bathroom and my sons managed to open these locks by forcing them open a few years ago, when they were less than 3 years old. My younger one was not even 18 months old and he figured out how to get through the locks, so I agree that these need to be recalled! I will be contacting CPSC to tell them of my personal experience with them (I wish I had done so years ago but I never thought about it).
