Easy to install, just a few things to be aware of.

I purchased and installed 2 sets of these cabinet locks (24 total) to keep our very active (fully walking), and curious 10 month old grandson out of our cabinets. He loves to pull on handles and knobs. These locks work well, but it's worth noting a few things:
1) I recommend using the magnet key to check for any metal bits in drawer faces and doors prior to installation. If the lock is installed too close to metal that's on the surface, or buried inside of a drawer face or door, the locking mechanism won't engage because the magnet inside the lock will be attracted to the metal, preventing the lever from popping up and snagging the catch. I ran into this problem during my install, even though I installed the lock away from the metal handle and screws. After removing the metal handle and screws from the drawer face, I still experienced the issue. However, if I removed the lock from the drawer face and operated it while holding it in my hand (as a test) it worked fine - the lever would pop up when the magnet key wasn't applied. I finally determined that there were small bits of metal buried inside the drawer face (probably small woodworking nails/staples), and confirmed it by using the magnet key to move along the wood, feeling it being pulled in various places. I simply moved the lock to a different location away from where I felt the pull on the magnet, and that solved the problem.
2) The 3M adhesive is strong and works well. I didn't need to use the screws. If you mess up, you can try prying the entire lock or catch off the cabinet surface, rotating it away from the surface while applying substantial force. In my case, I was able to pry the lock and catch off and reapply them using the original 3M adhesive, without damaging anything. Every situation is different, so use caution. If you think you might damage something, you can use dental floss to slice through the 3M adhesive strip, remove the lock/catch, then peel the remaining adhesive off the surface, and apply either a spare adhesive strip provided, or get some double-sided foam tape from a retailer (Target, Home Depot, etc), and reapply.
3) If you have inset doors, you can use the locks by first attaching 3/4 inch square dowel cut to length (about 3 inches) behind the top header of the door frame (you can attach it using double-sided foam tape available from various retailers such as Target, Home Depot, etc). You can purchase 3/4 inch square dowel rods from Home Depot for about $3 (36 inch long rod), and ask them to cut several 3 inch lengths for you using their power saw. See first pic for example.
4) They're difficult to use with drawers that are narrow or shallow (e.g. a small bathroom vanity). In that case I went with black Command picture hanging strips instead, which worked well (see last pic).
