Xpert xlock- toddlerproof?

Any poling mamas here who have an Xpert with Xlock on it?
We're moving house soon and I'm buying a new pole (yay!) and I'm thinking about getting a pole with Xlock but was wondering how easy is to turn from static to spinning, specifically- is it toddler proof? I don't want my 2 year old playing with my pole when it's on spinning as it can go quite fast...
I'm probably overthinking this but would appreciate any feedback on this!

I have one! That's a good mommy question. It not super easy to lift and unlock. You lift then turn while having to hold it up, holding it up takes some strength of the hand as it automatically wants to push back down before you twist. I'm not sure a toddler could lift and twist with the dexterity needed. It took me a bit to work it out hahahaha

My kids are all to old to test it on!

Thanks Veena!

That sounds safe enough, I will think over whether I think it's worth the extra money ;)

So I know that this is a different brand, but Lupit's is not toddler proof. My kid can change it back and forth.

@Micheru that's not good, hopefully someone else can give feedback on the Xpole one then!
I already have the ceiling mount for the Xpert so not looking to change to Lupit.

I have xlock pole. I have to put a little bit of umph to switch. I do mean a little bit as an adult, there's a little technique to lift, turn and let drop into position. It is done quickly now that I am used to it. Maybe your toddler won't actually know how you are doing it in order to figure it out. But, again, there's a technique.

I have an xlock as well. I think it’s pretty toddler proof. I also have a crash mat that covers the lock, so much so that it’s kinda a pain to switch the pole. That might be a good option if you’re still concerned.

Thanks, that sounds good!

A mat would be good but I like my heels too much :P
