Kid Key Lock is the small cousin of Pro Key Lock. It is a simple and free utility to lock specific keyboard and mouse functions.

Kid Key Lock (or Kid-Key-Lock, or KidKeyLock) is ideal to be used in order to prevent toddlers from accidentally pressing unwanted buttons on your keyboard and mouse.

When Kid Key Lock is running, an indicator icon will appear on your system tray. When you click on the tray icon a pop-up menu will appear. All program functions, including the setup dialog box are accessible from this menu.

If you like Kid Key Lock but you may also have a look at Pro Key Lock. Pro Key Lock is shareware. You can download and try it for free for 10 days and if you like it you may buy it for a small price.
