Slide switches

Our 2yo grandson is coming for a visit. He pushes every button ever made! (Including mine! Jk LOL)
Anyway, is there a way to disable the slides? Circuit breaker or fuse? My old class a had a key, but my crusader does not. It seems odd for a FW made to host kids wouldn't have a better safety system.

TIA for your help! You guys are the best.

since he is 2 I would think he could not reach the buttons as mine are at eye level and I am 6`1, you could install a toggle in the circuit and mount it higher and farther away

Mine are pretty low. Lower than the lights. Good idea on toggle switch

I've got the same fear/concern with my midget and taking him camping this and the next couple of years. I'm trying to find a prettier (ok, NOT orange) version of this:

I've considered a mister full of water and spraying him like he were a dog, but my luck he would enjoy it.

The next logical step would be a tazer... but I'm sure that would ruffle some feathers.

Or a Phaser, just set to stun, of course. Less expensive would be pull the fuse.

I've tried the tazer, the preschool frowns upon it. I also cannot find a straight jacket in his little size.

A very slight swat on the behind with a newspaper/magazine works wonders when done with a stern DO NOT TOUCH THAT! Some way, some how, they have to be taught discipline and there are rules. Probably ruffle a few feathers with this, but it's JMO.

Our switches are very low as well. Last year, when we wanted to keep JR's fingers off of the switches, we ended up putting a gate up between the kitchen counter and the entertainment center wall. It got to be a pain sometimes when we wanted to go out the door but we got used to it. Never did find an actual cover they make for it.
