Child Safety Locks For A Safe Cooking Environment

We are committed to ensuring that our products adhere to the latest safety regulations. Your safety is of the utmost importance, and microwave child safety locks will help to prevent injury.

Did you know that from 2002 to 2012, more than 7,000 children under the age of five were treated for microwave-related burns in the U.S.?

The Underwriters Laboratories Standards Technical Panel for microwave ovens updated ‘UL 923, the Standard for Microwave Cooking Appliances’ to require two distinct actions to open the door of a microwave. In March 2024, child-resistant doors were regulated in order to reduce injury in children.

Microwave Door Locks

Danby microwaves are equipped with two types of child safety locking mechanisms. 

  1. To prevent the control panel from being activated.
  2. To prevent the door from being opened.

Refer to your owner’s manual for child safety lock instructions.
