My name is Joshua Clement with Lighty contractors. I'm going to show you how to properly install a baby safety toilet latch. This is one of the most important you can do to protect your little one from drowning in a toilet. Did you know a child could drown in as little as two inches of water? That's crazy. Why wouldn't you install a baby safety toilet latch to keep that from happening? It's very simple, take a couple seconds to do. I'm going to show you how. Going to need a couple tools: Paper towels, multi surface cleaner, and your latch. The first thing you want to do is take your multi surface cleaner, and clean the toilet seat and the toilet tank really well. This will keep any grime or dust from preventing the baby safety toilet latch from sealing. Make sure you get your surface good and dry. So, that way, when we put the adhesive on there, it's sure to stick. Now that we have our surface good and clean, we're going to take our baby safety toilet latch, go ahead and dry fit it. In dry fitting, you're sure that you get it in the right spot before we put the permanent sealer onto it. Take the back part to the baby safety toilet latch off, peel off the back to the adhesive, scoot the bottom part away from the back of the tank, place the part that adheres to the back of the tank in front of it, and slowly push it into position. Now, take the bottom part, remove the cover for the adhesive, take it, tip it down, and into place. Firmly push. And, there you have it. As you can see, it glides very slowly and smoothly. Doing this could save your child's life. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty contractors, and that is how you properly install a baby safety toilet latch.
