I asked this same question earlier and was bombarded with parenting advice.

I did the hook trick up high on the door and it has worked well so far.

Good luck-I also have a two year old.

I am going to visit ACE Hardware and see what I can come up with. There has to be something that would work good. Maybe I should market it when I figure it out!

Tried the outside grab handle idea. If you push on it it pops open. Must be a safety thing.

Some do, some don't. My daughter couldn't put her hip thru enough to pop open the grab handle with our tests. But, she didn't get nutty with it.

We only use it with the screen door and when we are awake. I wouldn't use it at night and rely on it popping open in case of an emergency.

We tried it when my wife needed something for when she was showering. She had our 10yr old autistic child, the 6 yr old and the 2 year old. My 10 yr old won't watch the 2 yr old; my 6 yr old does a good job but the 2 yr old can get away from her. She's not very strong or assertive. She needed to confine them when I was away at work.

Still brain-storming a good lock / hasp without making too many holes. The good, old fashioned hook may be the best.

Is a simple baby gate enough to deter them?

We were thinking of a baby gate just need to mount it. We were thinking about it for the dogs. We were not sure how they would be camping - they enjoy it. They made themselves at home! They are better behaved then the kids.

That is why I purchased our TT with bunks, for the dogs to enjoy. Since we don't have kids, it was intended for them. Oh, and anyone else who would like to join us. As for the kids escaping, you can always leave them at home. That would solve your problem (just kidding of course).
