You could put a inline valve in the beer line. Put them inside the kegerator and turn off when you are not pulling beer. Then no pressure no interest by the kids.

No kegging experience, so I don't know if the valve will cause foaming or not.

Get technically fun, you could install electric solenoids and use hidden toggle switches to open the valves. More $$ but more fun that way. Infact you could use them and a remote switch to pour your beer or cut someone off

Another outside the box thought here: MasterLock sells a retractable cable lock that is combination based for around $8. They will cinch down between the faucet handle and the nut on the faucet and you can route it around the tower. Easy solution for $16 in my opinion. Oh, and you can get your favorite color!!

Holy sh!t. Remote controlled beer tap. I could program my universal remote control to serve the beer.

Of course, then I would have to lock the remote away from the kids, too....

You know what would be even more fun!?!?

Using infrared detectors that would detect your hand+glass to turn on the faucet. Then you could just disable the detectors via a switch lock.

Tad expensive, but fun.

I'm not sure, but I think this thread has gone right off a cliff into Crazyland.

I have a season pass to Crazyland. I don't use it that often, but it is good for life.

Keep us informed how this works out. You probably have some silent followers with this problem.
