Technical challenge. Under the stage at church, is
an area which the teens discovered as a hide out.
No adults, no lights. Not safe.
There is access about 24 x width of two stud bays.
About 20 wide. I put in another stud there, to block
access. The kids took it out (couple drywall screws,
no big deal). I guess they didn't get the point "stay
out" or got the point, and don't care. I'm looking for
a cheap way to block the access. Ideally, it should be
removable so the maint department can get in later.
I've got a few ideas, but I'm sure you'd have some
ideas that would not occur to me.
Plan at the moment is replace the stud, and put some
gorilla glue on the ends, so it's glued in good. Put a
couple bars horizontal. Wood, or metal, not sure.
Attach the horizontals with drilled torx screws, or maybe
one way slope screws. Carpet ring nails, maybe.
I've got some wardrobe shelf I can cut to shape to
make a grille, but not sure how to anchor that. Also
thinking refrigerator shelf or oven shelf cut to size.
Others have suggested to cut a solid door to shape,
use NRP hinges, and some kind of lock. That could
