How do I make something (see below) child-proof?


What a doozy? Husband's small canvas paintings are mounted on fabric panels of a partition. Grandchild delights in removing those. Each painting hangs on with a sharp drapery hook that is easily poked thru the fabric. Partition is too heavy and big to be set on top of furniture. It stands on the floor. Help!

    Until they are older, it might be better to put a plate rail up high on the wall and place the pictures there for awhile.

    In my opinion, if you can’t move it easily when they visit, perhaps you need to remove and store it until they are older. I have things that if my grand babies got into they’d get hurt also. My grand babies are not alone in any area of my home, and I stay on them with no don’t touch!

    Well first option is remove altogether but next best is to make it child friendly. So you know how they make those new Velcro command hanging strips? You may need to figure out a version of that with the Velcro used in sewing due to fabric. Then get those hooks out of there. Next consider moving valuable pieces higher out of reach or remove when kid comes over. Lastly go get some small canvas ones for kid to paint. Put those on the low end. Set boundaries. We can play with ours but these at the top are for grandpa to play with. Then the Velcro can be stuck on an off easily.

    I would move this to a room or party of the house where your grandchild cannot get to it until they are old enough to understand.
