Black tank valve locking device?????

Are there any devices out there that one can install to keep a kid from pulling the black tank release valve....I always close the valve after a cleaning....I think it's happened to me.....was going to attach hose...removed cap not realizing valve had been opened....luckily it was mostly tank chemical and water this time.....any help out there???

Could you drill a hole in the handle and run a cable thru it and around the piping behind it then secure the cable with a small lock? Or see if the handle will simply unscrew so it can be removed when not in use?

An important reminder to give that handle a push before opening the sewer cap.

But then you would have to tip 'em a buck for a tank rinse.

I usually place a small pail under the pipe before I remove the cap. This is also a good reason to wear rubber gloves. (long ones)
