Kids always hitting switches.

I have a curious 4 year old who likes to push buttons. Our new coach has the battery disconnect, power awning and step switch right below the light switch as you enter the coach. My little man kept hitting those switches even though I think he was trying to hit the light switch. So I came up with this solution. I but a wall switch light cover lock over the three switches.

Never had the problem with our son.

Maybe because MY first words were: "Don't touch that!" LOL

Very nice install. We have a similar problem in our Winnebago where the bay light switch and battery disconnect switch are located right next to the entry steps. I am constantly finding the bay light switch on from people bumping it with there feet. Do you mind telling me were did you find your lock out plate?

You have that problem too?
My grandson, age three presses every button that he can lay his hands on. What I did was tape a piece of red tape across the buttons to try to prevent him from pressing them. So far so good, but I like your idea better. I'll have to look into that.
