    I have had this problem with many cats since the mid 70's. I used to open the lever case and put in a screw to prevent the lever from going downward.

    Now Amazon offers several devices to solve the problem. Of course, the devices are meant to protect kids but one seller now shows it in use with a feline.

    The most prolific cat at opening all types of doors is my gray tabby (Kit Carson) like the one in the picture. I remember @mhardy6647 saying he had a very mischievous gray tabby. Maybe the gray cats are wired differently.

    I don't know what that toy does. I have one of the Shop Mates from long ago so I am halfway to using the toy; maybe.

    @mhardy6647, I like that protective 'housing' you are building using the toy.

    Now where did you find and purchase the "toy"?

    I need to build a protective housing on a concrete pad to protect my grill. I like the metal roofing.

    Thanks!

    Oh, Home Despot has 'em in stock at most stores.

    There are also small "jobsite" versions that are cheaper and that can be used for tighter spaces.
    I bought one of these, too, just in case (plus, it includes the two-step drill bit, which seems like a good thing of which to have a spare).

    Kreg also "makes" (well... sells) nice screws to use with them. Of course, you can use any screws you want, but the Kregs have a few nice features (as they themselves point out in their advertising material).

    The metal roofing is a stock item at the Despot too :)
    It's approximately the same color as our standing seam roof (and, amusingly & ironically, as the metal roof on our daughter & son-in-law's house, too!).

    I had originally thought about building the kids' using asphalt shingles, but my son-in-law had the brainstorm of using sheet roofing. I am glad he did! The thing was/is heavy as all getout anyway -- it would've been hella heavy with a shingle roof, harder to construct, too -- and for not much added value.

    I do wish we'd have built that first one a little lower. We wanted to give the heat exchanger plenty of room to breathe, and I think (IIRC, that is) that we used "convenient" length 2 x 4s that we didn't have to cut :) for the studs. :p

    I had an orange cat that could do lever style handles. He also mastered opening cabinets and drawers.
    He used to sleep in a drawer in the bathroom vanity. Fortunately, he couldn't get a good
    grip on doorknobs. That didn't stop him from trying
    I currently have a black cat that tries to grab doorknobs. I don't have a lever handle in the current
    house, so I don't know if he could work the lever. They are way too smart when they want to be.

    I believe that @mrbiron is showing off another of his construction projects.

    No mr h, just taking a photo of pleasant bay in orleans, ma. ;)

    The photo does have an essence of being “abstract” with a random corn hole board in the middle of a yard overlooking the ocean.

    was joke! was joke! I keed, I keed.

    PS Am I the only reprobate that feels that corn hole was a really unfortunate moniker for a wholesome family game for midwesterners?

    Doc we call it bags here in the Midwest. It has just been the last few years I've heard it called "Cornhole", and here in my area if you've been "Cornholed" that is a whole other problem and you may not sit down correctly IF ya know what I mean....
