Childproof door locks are an invaluable safeguard for parents with kids of all ages. Activating them is also easy. Here’s all you need to do:

  1. Open the back door.

  2. Locate the lever on the inside edge of the door (close to the door latch itself).

  3. Move the switch down to set the childproof door lock (or up to deactivate it).

  4. Repeat this step for the other door.

Tip

Activating the childproof door locks means that the rear doors will not open from the inside at all, no matter what position the door lock is in.
