Locking Cooker Valve Locking Cooker Valve Information
Top of page
SGN's locking cooker valve helps vulnerable customers retain their independence at home and provides reassurance to family, friends and carers.
The simple safety device is fitted to existing gas cooker pipework. When the valve is locked, the gas supply to the cooker is stopped. This eliminates the risk of the cooker being unintentionally turned on or left on, and gives peace of mind to the carer or relative that the cooker canít be used when they leave the house or the room. The carer or relative can easily turn the valve on using the key when the cooker is required, enabling the vulnerable person to continue to use their gas cooker safely.
SGN provides this free service regardless of your gas supplier. You donít need to change energy supplier or inform your supplier of the device. Phone 0800 975 1818 or click the links.
