Q: My strap lock did not stick to my drawer, what did I do wrong?
A: Check that the surface it was applied to was thoroughly cleaned and free of any grease or debris. After that, if the lock is going around in the corner we have found that the winter months and colder temperatures that using a hair dryer to warm the center of the strap up helps from it to the corner. If you are re-installing make sure you remove the old adhesive from the lock, again with a hairdryer. Then apply a fresh adhesive (included in the package) to re-install. Also, make sure not to touch the adhesive once the paper is pulled off, as the oil in our skin will cause it not to stick properly. After installed let the lock cure for 24 hours, meaning don’t touch it, open it or pull on it.
