    Default Child safety lever door lock

    I am having trouble finding a good child safey lever door lock. Most of the knobs in our house are round, and those are easy to find, but I do have 2 that are the lever style handle and have difficulty getting one that he can't figure out right away.
    We tried the Kidco one and within a few days he could open it. I thought I had seen one where you had to squeeze on the top and bottom of the handle both to release the lever. I have tried: Canadian Tire, Children's Furniture Gallery, Home Depot, Home Hardware, Funky Monkey, Cheeky Monkey, and Tummies to Tots......have I missed somewhere? Maybe I need to order online.

    Any chance to use a deadbolt or a hook and eye closure on the doorframe near the top that only adults can reach?

    All of our doors in the house are this style. I found great safety stuff at Zellers. The best I have found is one made by Safety first. I think I have seen them at Toys R Us too though. For our outside doors I did put a latch at the top of the door.

    Here is a link to safety 1st web site for latches. This is page 2 of the latches and there is a lever handle lock shown on the bottom right.

    We changed the lever handle doors to round! It was easier
