Keyboard and mouse lock.

Overview

MollyGuard is a small menu bar application that enables you to lock and unlock your keyboard--and, optionally, mouse or trackpad--via a hotkey combination. When locked, no input is accepted from the keyboard or (optionally) mouse, save for the lock/unlock hotkey combination.

No explanation here or on dev's website about how one might unlock input devices if all are locked.

What an awesome little app! Still works great on OS 10.11 (El Capitan). Yes, my baby loves slapping at the keyboard if my laptop is open. MollyGuard is also handy for cleaning your keyboard. I see it hasn't been changed in years, (and still works fine), but I hope that the developer will some day update the icon to work with the Dark Menubar. The black icon on black menubar is totally invisible. (That being said, some of the icon options are not black, but dark gray, and thus a little bit visible.) Another smart addition might be that when locking both keyboard and mouse, there's a little onscreen prompt telling the user how to unlock it. I know it's in the help file, but I can easily imagine somebody locking it and not knowing how to exit. Still – thank you for this app!

My guess is Control Option Command L. It works if only the keyboard is locked, so should work when mouse is locked too... But I'm not trying it yet!

I can confirm that, yes, Control-Option-L unlocks things even if the keyboard is locked.
