    My son has just started crawling, and I'm sure I should be proud, but I'm too busy pulling him away from my speaker cables and amp!

    We'll be moving in the next few months, and I'll do it properly and put everything out of sight. But I need a way of keeping the little one away from the amp (mainly) in the short term. I very nearly switched on this evening without noticing he'd kindly turned the volume up to max - I never have it more than about 2!

    I've attached a photo of my current setup - everything piled onto an Ikea TV table. Any suggestions welcome.

    You could get some perspex sheet from B&Q. Cut the sheet so that it is the same size/shape as you tv stand fasten it at the top with some hinges and put a catch at the bottom. that way you will still be able to use remotes etc. and little fingers will not get to your stuff.:)

    Attach strips of velcro to your son's romper suit and convenient places around the house.

    Whenever you have to leave him unattended, stick the guy to a piece of nearby velcro.

    Cheers

    PS. :D

    If your speakers can handle it let him turn up and scare himself silly!

    yeah, but after reading scary threads on avsforum about how to get rid of mice nesting in subwoofers by playing Das Boot on maximum volume, perhaps I'll give that a miss for now.
