I know, I just think it's funny how people will give it....

He put his components up in a rack like you posted. Up high enough to be out of reach, but still reasonable. He hung it on studs with some support from below also. This way it is not permanent. The cables went up instead of down to the floor. Then came down to the speakers. Where the cables had to be low he wrapped them in cable split wrap, that way in case they get chewed, it gives you a buffer. The one thing he never solved was kids denting the dust caps on his speaker cones. Once they figured out the grills came off, they got dented. We used a vacuum cleaner to pop them out, but they were a little funky from then on.
Unfuckingbelieveable!

Why not just put a wire cage around everything and hook a fence charger to it?

Because a log chain and choke collar on the kid, hooked to a ring bolted in a corner of the basement floor near the sump pump is easier and cheaper?

It's really not that big a deal. I know people who have all their stuff rack mounted with custom faceplates and have some serious cash invested in their systems. This is just a simple protective measure for a couple hundred bucks.

Well, I broke down and bought a 12U wall mount locking rack server cabinet and three shelves. It should arrive tomorrow or Friday. I'll have to do a bit of work re-running some speaker and electrical wiring, but I think it will work out for the best. And then I'll have to patch up some holes and such in the wall from my current setup. Oh well, I needed something to keep me busy anyway...

You know, when they're old enough to get into trouble, but no old enough to understand language is the hardest time. But all you really need is a temporary babygate, to get you to the point when they've figured out the word "no." A couple of "time-out" sessions will get that lesson through at that time. If you have a real trouble maker, you can always put it in a nice enclosure w/ sliding doors, that lock.

With our 1yo, he's definitely learning boundaries when he tries to hit the dog, who isn't afraid of biting you to let you know he's not happy. It is absolutely unacceptable that he play with the dog. And we use any time he approaches the dog to show him the type of reaction he gets out of us...a real firm no, and alot of displeasure. We did this w/ our older fellow too, and didn't let him touch the dog until he learned the word "gentle." No problems with him. Same kind of idea, but w/ something like knobs, it's easier to set up the plastic babygate and wait till he learns "no" through some other context, then apply that "no" business to the hifi when he's already figured out what it means.

We've had the dog issue as well. He's pretty good about that after getting a nasty scratch (and a trip to the ER with fretful parents) from our Rat Terrier.

He has learned to feed the dog from his high chair (d'oh), so now he and the dog have quite the rapport...
