Dreambaby® Flexi-Locks operate with a multi-touch release system that makes childproofing fast and easy as no tools are required to install them. To open simply press the center button and one of the side buttons simultaneously. To close, thread the straps through the handles and reinsert into the lock. Especially difficult to open. Using a variety of different locking solutions in your home helps prevent children from learning how to operate them by doing what children do best – watching and learning.
