locking doorknobs

Post stuff here pertaining to non-spud related projects that many forum members seem to enjoy. Hovercrafts, dirt bikes, electronics, propane-powered bikes, go-karts, etc. This is more of a project area,
not a place to chat about what you saw yesterday on TV. Remember to keep it within the forum rules!

You may just need to get a better quality doorknob.

lmao Plow!

It's been a long time since I took one of those apart but maybe there's a rod on the inside with the button on it, cut the button off.

Flyingspuds has an idea there with the shocky knob. I would go for that, you just need to keep it charged until you get up.

Tell them they're going to jail next time they go in your room. Then have your mom go in there and pretend to send her to jail. That one's too much work though.

I would find a way to lock them in their own room.

Rig the door somehow so that when they enter, a loud screaming voice comes up (at full volume) and scares them like no other. You know, like those things on ebaumsworld? Problem is, that would wake you up as well.

The jail thing might work

During the day, just go into their room, and mess up their stuff. You have the advantage: your bigger (hopefully)! They CAN'T push you out!

if your door opens towards your room you can always put a chair up to the door knob. then the only way for them to get in is to remove the door knob or even the whole door[:0]

[br]hmm, why not have a charged camera flash hooked to 2 pieces of thin aluminium tape plaged on the doorknob?
just tell your parents so they don't get shocked if there is a legit need to enter your room ;)

Yeah, that's real bright:evil:. Blast the kids with a potentially deadly amount of current. That would solve it for sure, if he kills one of them, the other will never come anywhere near him again.
