Default No safe" how do you lock a lever action rifle?

I don't have a safe and I have kids at home, whats a good way to lock a lever action? You can't run it threw the chamber and a trigger lock doesn't work ( you can just open the lever) I ran a cable around the stock and threw the loop of the lever and now you can't work the lever as long as its wrapped twice and locked , but I'm afraid it will scratch the nice wooden stock. Any suggestions ??

As above or a locking rifle case, or a safe. Anything that keeps your firearms out of the hands of unauthorized people. Simply locking the action won't keep someone from stealing it.

A locking rifle case won't keep the gun from being stolen, either.
