Recruit, tell your daughter that if she removes the speaker grills that she will let the monsters out.

I guess that's a good argument for wall mounted speakers...at least until they are old enough to wreck your car instead. I have nightmares about that exact scenario. Good luck with the replacements.

Haha, I've told my 2 year old nephew that. Scared the out of him. I also told him that if he touches my Maelstrom-X, the 200lb. box will fall over on him
He hasn't touched it yet

Re: Oh No, My 2 year old did it again!

Sounds so much like managing adults in the workplace by using different motivators appropriate to the individual. Although I have to admit, I never told one that if he played games on his computer again that the monsters will come flying out of his monitor.

Now if there was some way to make the grills non removable.....
Since this is my first post, I'm unable to post links or photos. But, if you'll do a google search for "Scotch removable mounting squares " you'll find a product that might work for you. "Removable" is the key word.

I'm not sure how well they would work with speaker grilles, but I used the squares to hang some photos on my painted wall and after two years or more I was able to slowly and carefully remove them with no damage whatsoever to wall or photo.

Scotch/3M offers several different types of mounting tape/squares, some marked "removable," some not. I used the 1" x 1" removable squares with the 108 model number. There is an 11/16" x 11/16", #859 model. The squares can be trimmed to fit. The product claims each square holds up to 1/2 lb (4 of them will hold 2 lbs). 4 or 6 of them ought to keep little hands from removing the grille.

The package says "Use on wood, ceramic tile, gloss and semi-gloss painted walls, glass and refrigerators." I think I got 'em at my local Home Depot. Lowe's, Officemax, Staples might also carry them.

But vertical strength is going to be different than horizontal.
