I moved a table in front of the backdoor, after I had put a sliding lock on it, put duck tape across it like police tape and tied a string from the door knob to an in wall shelf so that the door could not be opened.
He moved the table, took down the tape, cut the string with a pair of safety scissors and climbed up onto a chair to unlock the lock then ran outside into the back yard.
I give up, I have a miniature Harry Houdini on my hands.
Gates don't work either, he knows how to open them. Do they make door knobs that lock by keys on both sides? Other than that maybe I can get a pad lock and put it on the door.
The only other thing I know to do is handcuff the kid to me so he is never out of my sight lol.
You could put a dead bolt lock that only opens with a key on the inside. You have to turn the key itself to open it. Get one of those. We have one on the back door.
It;s a Schlage lock. You NEED the key to open the door.
They sall them at Home Depot or any Lock Shop.

You can get these for the doors and windows. You punch in a 4 digit code to disarm it. The smaller one is for the windows and will either alarm or just chime, depending on how you set it.

Also, if he is escaping during the night when other people are sleeping, you can put up one of these sensors in his room, and put the receiver in your room. It will beep in your room when he walks around in his room.
