I am looking for a universal remote that controls at least 3 devices that has a locking battery compartment. My son quickly ruins every remote I purchase by messing with the batteries and their compartment, door, etc. I'd like one that has a screw to lock the battery door. At this point I don't care what brand, what features, what price - I'm so tired of having them ruined! Merchants can't help me because of packaging and websites don't show photos of the backs of the remotes. Anyone know of one?
Thanks!

:-) LOL!! I've already tried duct tape, but that just gives him a challenge and leaves a gluey mess all over! :-)

Did you try using the duct tape on your son?

You realise, of course, that we could all be missing a wonderful marketing opportunity here.

1. A fiddly job, but do you have or know of someone (maybe a local repair shop) who has a tray of those 'little screws' that you could drill and countersink the cover to then fit a locking screw.

2. On a lighter note, why don't we play 'Doctor Phil' and find out WHY he's doing it! Who wants to start?...................

(As Dr. Phil):

Now son, your father has spent a gazillion dollars on remotes, and you seem to delight in ruining those remotes. Just what is your problem?

And a screw is going to keep him out. Sure.

How about some discipline to keep him out?

Maybe Torx screws would help (until he finds a chisel... :)

URC's MX3000 has a locking compartment, but it's a kind of expensive locking cover :) $999
