When shopping for cabinet and drawer latches, it's important to find latches that are easy to install and easy to use. Gerber latches fit the bill! Simply position the latch on the inside lip of drawer so the hook will clear the catch part of the cabinet as drawer is closed. Screw the provided two screws into either side of the latch. When children try to open the cabinet, the latch will catch, stopping the door from opening more than an inch or so. Adults can open the cabinet or drawer easily, however. Just press the spring button down as you pull open the door!
