Protecting Equipment from Children

My grandchildren are visiting this weekend.  They love buttons, knobs and remote controls.  Is there a good way to protect my equipment from destructive little hands?


I use plexiglass and Velcro to protect my equipments  from my own twins 👯‍♀️ they’re 2 now grills never ever comes off unless taking pictures 😀😀☺️

Tell their parents to bring the gate that prevented them from climbing stairs.  Attach flat cardboard pieces, if needed.

What worked for you, back when you were a parent?

Get them a drink (age appropriate) sit them down in your stereo room and teach them what good music is. They will get it.


When my then 3 year old granddaughter, who is now 22, saw my turntable for the first time, she dragged the tonearm across an album.  I never did find the stylus 😶. I can only fault myself for being careless.  

When my now 3 year old and 7 year old granddaughters come to visit, I never leave them alone in my music room (they both love old school R&B music).  I play music for them and they both love to sing and dance around.  They also know they can never touch my gear nor bring food or drinks into that room.
