    "To monkey" with something (slang/informal) = to tamper with something (Usually, but not always, after getting access to the working parts of something.)
    monkeyproof welding = welding that will resist attempts to get inside the thing.

    I'm not sure it requires any reference to "monkey" as a verb; it is proof against monkeys, both mischievous animals and stupid human beings, either of whom might try doing things to the device it is not designed for. The welding will not break with this mistreatment.
