What is a locking cooker valve?Fitted locking cooker valve

Locking Cooker Valves are fitted near to the gas cooker or hob in a location which is easy to reach.
The valve can be turned on or off and can be locked into position. The key can be removed and kept by the family member or carer.

This helps to stop the gas escaping if the cooker or hob is switched-on by mistake.

It will help my mother to continue to stay in and live safely in her home. I still cannot believe that you offer such an amazing service.”
