Yep, you are definitely a VW guy with that attitude. Not saying there's anything wrong with that...to each their own. But that would work better in a college roommate environment.

My kids are 11 years, 8 years, and 3 months. So while I know that whatever I come up with won't be totally older kid-proof (if they messed with it for a few min.), I still need more than a sock.

Give the kids a roll of quarters and send them to the game room with instructions to make the quarters last an hour. Worked for us! If no game room, then sorry about your luck.

Very nice, ddphillips52. And if there is no game room just tell them to look for one, right? haha! I wish I could do this, but my 11 y/o is about as socially advanced as my 8 y/o. So for this summer anyway, it doesn't work for me. Dang it!

If I just had a 5r this wouldn't be an issue. Time to upgrade??? Haha!

Wouldn't a simple hook and loop lock work?

We don't have locks on our doors in the camper- we just make sure daughter is very asleep before any funny business happens.

And, if she walks in... well, we'll be having a very frank discussion the next day. (If she remembers- she's a sleep walker.)

The link in my sig should show the lock I put on the sliding bathroom door. You're <$5 from a solution. Look in the Sabre album.

The pocket door on our bathroom has twist latch/vinyl straps on it...can be secured open or closed. I'm thinking a small drill bit and a tiny padlock lock would secure the door.

Or just install a hasp type latch on the door and door facing, drop a 10 penny nail through the hasp. (shrug) If you wanna go fancy paint the latch and 10 penny nail to match the wood finish.

If you have to buy something would that be considered paying for it?

Damn...must me nice to be young and have these problems! We could drive to Alaska and back and never have that problem "arise"
But our slider has a loop and snap to keep it open, I think the same could be used to keep it closed.
