Is there a lock that will keep our children safely locked in while allowing the mailman to open the screen door?

When Bigger Toddlers Can Defeat a Lock

Sometimes finding a lock that an older toddler cannot open is a tricky venture, especially with odd doors such as screen doors, or sliding glass doors. When you just cannot seem to find a lock that meets all your needs, moving the lock too high for the child to reach may be your only option. If moving the lock is not possible, adding another lock up higher may be. Remember when moving the lock, to still keep it low enough to easily be used by adults and older children.
