Child-Proof Door?

We just got back from our first weekend out with our camper. We had a nice time. Everything went well except we need to figure out a way to keep our 2 year old inside. Whenever he wants out her knows how to unlatch the door and out he goes! Tried the 'deadbolt' - no go - he just flips that and he's off!

Any good ideas out there? Is there a childproof deadbolt or lock that we can keep him contained? Looking on RV Locks now.

He's two and bull-headed like his dad. He'll probably pull it out of the wall.

Looks easy enough but not sure how it will hold up.

Someone in this forum, I forget who this was so I can't give him diserved credit.
I thought this was a great idea for our grandkids.

Anyway his idea was to reach thru the opening in the screen door, lift a pull the hand bar over in front of the screen door.

This is what we have been doing with our 2 year old and it's working good. She is trying to push through the mesh though. Gotta figure out how to stop that

I added plexiglass to my door to prevent this. I cut it to fit in the inside slots that go around the door.

Teaching them the real meaning of NO works best.
