Toddler in your Georgetown?

Our little guy has started to walk all over the place and needed to find a fix for the big drop on the steps. I ended up using a piece of plywood covered in carpet with a frame underneath to hold it in place.

I wish FR would have installed some sort of cover that slides out for that area.

I missed where you first said "with a frame underneath to hold it in place" and was thinking, "that needs some kind of pegs or something to keep it from sliding sideways".

Good stuff. Mind sharing a picture of the bottom?

Oh, you are right. He is going to be turning on and off all those switches. He used to set off the LP alarm on our old TT all the time.

True, true, it's also a mod for us drinkers.

To be honest I could have done a better job but needed something quick since we are heading out camping today. I could have done a cutout for the step's handrail so that the board fits flush against the screen door. There is a gap there, but the good thing is that it's a good place to grab it when you remove it.

Looks good enough for me. Nicely done.

I'm lucky that most of my monitors are behind a door that little man hasn't decide he can open yet. However, our 3rd gray tank's monitor is all out by its lonesome self. He likes to push "his button".

The wife's idea for covering the hole was to throw some pillows or a comforter...really? LOL
