Does anyone have a product recommendation that stops a toddler from opening a lever door handle? TIA

We got these for our doors and they are great. Just put it above where he can reach and the door cannot be opened. No drill, easy to use, fits all doors. Has been great for us (well, not so much now as he drags a chair and reaches, even on the highest possible point he can reach it when standing on a chair)

You can put a baby gate right in the door frame. This is usually easiest, and allows you to leave the door open or closed.

Or use a cabinet door latch

And you can get lever door safety locks too, never tried one though

Does the lock work on both sides of the door?

Can you remove the handle and reinstall it upside down? So the handle has to be lifted instead of pulled down.
