Lock Release Fridge Latch

My kids broke the gate we had blocking our kitchen so they couldnt get in.  Since they broke it they constantly go in the fridge grabbing things and making a mess so we tried the Safety 1st Lock Release Latch.  Waste of our money, granted it was only 6 bucks it was still a waste.  After a good pull from my 5 yr old son it broke.  We followed the directions and waited the 24 hours before activating it, so it was broke because we didnt apply it right.  I guess we just need to suck it up and buy a new baby gate to keep the other 2 little ones out, because obviously 5 year old is a smart boy. Dont waste your money.
