Astronia Magnetic Locking System*

I was primarily interested in purchasing this product because our bengal cat has a tendency to open and close the cabinet doors in the kitchen and we needed a way to prevent our incredibly curious cat from getting into further mischief and/or possibly injuring himself.

Cat Opening Cabinet Doors

I was pleased to see that on the packaging it mentioned both babies and pets.

The package comes with 4 locks and a magnetic key to release the locking mechanism.

The installation instructions were not as easy to follow as I would have liked, but it did not take me too long to get it right. The locking mechanism itself is pretty clever and seems to work well. When the cabinet is shut it raises a tab which prevents the door from opening. The tab releases when the unlock key, a magnet, is put near it.

The true test comes in seeing if it prevents my cat from opening the cabinet doors and causing mischief. I am concerned that the adhesive may not stick well enough to the cabinet doors to withstand a strong pull, however the adhesive is the 3M brand which generally works well. I won’t be able to tell for certain how well this truly works until my cat attempts to open the cupboards, which he is of course not interested in doing at the time of the review. I will update this review when he does become interested again.

Pros:

  1. Packaging mentions pets
  2. Clever Locking/Unlocking Mechanism
  3. Uses 3M Brand Adhesive

Cons:

  1. Instructions could be easier to follow
  2. Not sure how well adhesive will work against a strong pull
