I need some help/suggestions. We had a long storage closet that is in our TV/Computer room, we don't use the closet too much, our son goes in it more than we do! All the handles in our house are the lever kind. Our son really likes switches, and all the lever handle's seem to have a little switch that I just know he'd figure out right away.

So for those of you with lever handles and curious toddlers that seem to find a way to get into everything (Isn't that all of them??), what is there to do to keep him out of the closet? We've tried saying no, giving time outs, etc. We haven't bought any child proof door handles yet, and we would rather not do anything that leaves a mark. What can we use??

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Ashley - Not easily, we haven't found any that don't look goofy with the rest of the house.

Emily - Thanks, the first one we've looked at and decided that it wouldn't be too hard for our son to figure out. The second one I haven't seen yet, looks like it would be a little harder for the kid to figure out. We'll take a look at that one and see.
