    I find this product to work well. I had no issues with installation and it has remained securely installed for 6 months now. It is the safest toilet lock I could find because you can’t forget to lock it. When you close the lid, it locks automatically. I did knock off one star because, as another reviewer mentioned, the device may prevent you from opening the lid all the way and resting it against the tank. In my application, the lid will remain open, but it is perfectly upright. This means the seat doesn’t quite open to an upright position and will fall closed when you let go. But, it’s only the seat. Guys, you just need to hold the seat up when you go! Not a big deal! The added security is worth it in my opinion. The other clip style locks are flimsy and easier for the little ones to manipulate, whereas this product requires a combination press/slide to release the lever. We are just adding another bathroom and I will be installing this lock on the new toilet as well.

    Update 1/5/12: The lock is just now starting to stick open and must be manually closed. Two years of heavy use for under $10…not bad!

    The lock was easy to install and I liked how easily the arm would swing back into the locked position. I thought it was straightforward to open, but guests seemed to have a hard time figuring it out. The lids would stay up when open. Then problem is our toilet tank is curved (concave). As a result, force would be applied to the arm extension at the edge of the tank and it would immediately pop off the adhesive.

    I tried using super glue and the same thing happened. I emailed Safety 1st and received no response. Their literature makes no mention of not being compatible with curved toilet tanks.

    Unfortunately, I’m going to eat the cost of this and see if I can pass it on to someone else. In the meantime, I’ve ordered another type of lock.

    It’s too bad because I liked the way it automatically locked when you closed the toilet.

    My daughter is in that fun stage where she is fascinated by the toilet so we had to break down and get a toilet lock. After doing alot of research online I decided on this one mainly because of the fact that it doesn’t attach to the bowl itself. There was something about having it down on the boil that grossed me out! I didn’t want to have to worry about cleaning it all the time and this one is out of the way and easy to clean when you wipe down the toilet lid, etc.

    I read a lot of reviews of people indicating that it didn’t latch automatically when the lid was closed and that it prevented the lid from staying upright etc. But this was NOT the case for us. It says in the directions that you have to make sure that you leave a little space between the arm and the catch bracket on the tank, otherwise it won’t close properly. We did that and it works great! It is easy to open (requires two hands though…so keep that in mind) and the arm swings out of the way and the lid stays open until we lower it back down. Once you put the lid down the arm swings back automatically and locks into place. Perfect! Very happy with this product!
