Transitioning from crib to toddler bed at 2?

Okay ladies;
I have a 2 year old that is a very active, she tries her very hardest daily to climb out of her crib!
I am worried that If I leave her in there much longer she will master it and hurt herself from the fall...
On the other hand, since she is so active, how to I get her to stay in a toddler bed with out the confinements of the crib walls.?
I am at a complete loss at the moment!

We put our son in a toddler bed. It was a nightmare! He must have gotten up a hundred times, all giggly and excited. We put a cover on the door knob in his room. We could get in but he could not get out. Maybe it was unkind but it took 2, count them 1...2 nights before he understood to stay put. The first night, we heard him cry and the door go clunk, clunk, clunk ...I told hm through the door goo back to bed. In the morning we found him on the floor. The second night, we heard the clunk and said go to bed...he did and bedtime routine was smooth ever since. He slept in is bed with door open from then on.
