Desk mods

My desk is also my workstation and I need to keep little fingers from my dangerous leaded electronic parts etc, so I gated it off.  Using a bit of ingenuity, an old refrigerator shelf, a junk piece of wood, and a small section of brass rod I came up with this locking door:

Desk - door closed

Desk – door closed

Desk - door open

Desk – door open

To open the door requires you to pull the brass rod out (which is flush with the side of the desk on purpose so little fingers can’t do it easily) by first moving it slightly out with your finger via the slot, then lift the door up a half inch, then proceed to open.  Closing is a simple reversal of the process.
