Claims (15)

  1. Safety device (115) for securing a device (100) having it, comprising a cabinet (105), a door (110) for locking the cabinet, a locking mechanism (215) which keeps the door closed and allows the door to be opened, the Safety device comprises:
    a first locking block (215), a first mounting module (310) for mounting the first locking block on the cabinet, a second locking block (220) and a second mounting module (370) for mounting the second locking block on the door, the first and the second block are independent of the locking mechanism,
    characterized in that
    the safety device further comprises a command element (325, 340) for selectively switching between an active state and an inactive state, both of which are stable to be sustained in the absence of external actions, wherein in an active state the first locking block and the second locking block interfere with each other to prevent opening of the door, and in an inactive state the first locking block and the second locking block do not interfere with each other to allow opening of the door.
  2. The safety device (115) of claim 1, wherein the first locking block (215) comprises a hook (320) and an elastic member (315) for biasing the hook, and wherein the second locking block (220) has a latch (375) for receiving the hook wherein in the inactive state the elastic element releases the hook from the bolt, and wherein in the active state the command element (325, 340) brings the hook into engagement with the bolt against the elastic element.
  3. The security device (115) of claim 1, wherein the second locking block (220) further includes a shoulder (380) for preventing engagement of the latch (375) when the security device is in the active state with the door (110) with the door (110) open. is located.
  4. The security device (115) of claim 2 or 3, wherein the first locking block (215) comprises a support (305), the first mounting module (310) attaches the support to the cabinet (105), and wherein the elastic element comprises an elastic strip (315). rotating about the support, the hook (320) protruding from a free end of the elastic strip.
  5. A safety device (115) according to claim 4, wherein the elastic strip (315) is in a rest state near the support (305), the command element (325, 340) bends the elastic strip away from the support in the active state and in the inactive state Condition allows the elastic strip to return towards the support.
  6. A safety device (115) according to claim 6, wherein in operation a sliding direction of the slider (325) along the support (305) is transverse to the door (110), the lever (340) in a position corresponding to the inactive state of the device (100) in protrudes to a first extent and in a position corresponding to the active state protrudes from the device by an extent which is greater than the first extent.
  7. A safety device (115) according to claim 6 or 7, wherein the command element (325, 340) further comprises a latching mechanism (330, 335) for locking the slider in the position corresponding to the inactive state or in the position corresponding to the active state.
  8. The safety device (115) of claims 6 to 8, wherein the lever is hingedly hinged to the slider (325), the lever, in use, for rotating between an operative position, the lever protruding from the device (100), and a hidden position, wherein at least a salient part of the lever in correspondence with the device is hidden when the door (1010) is closed.
  9. The safety device (115) according to claim 9, wherein the command element (325, 340) comprises a further latching mechanism (345, 350) for blocking the lever (340) in the operative position or the hidden position.
  10. A safety device (115) according to claim 9 or 10, wherein the lever (340) has a tooth (353) extending transversely to a principal plane of the lever, the tooth being inclined towards the door (110) in order to be outside the device (100). to remain when the lever is turned to the hidden position with the door closed.
  11. A safety device (115) according to any one of claims 9 to 11, wherein the command element (325, 340) further comprises a resilient element (355) for biasing the lever (340) against the operative position.
  12. Device (100) comprising a cabinet (105), a door (110) for locking the cabinet, a locking mechanism (215) which keeps the door locked and allows the door to be opened, and a security device according to any one of claims 1 to 12 to secure the device.
  13. The appliance (100) of claim 13, wherein the appliance is a dishwasher.
  14. A method of securing a device (100) comprising a cabinet (105), a door (110) for locking the cabinet and a locking mechanism (215) that keeps the door locked and allows the door to be opened, the method being as follows Comprises steps:
    Mounting a first locking block (215) of a security device on the cabinet, and
    Mounting a second securing block (220) of the security device on the door, the first and second locking blocks being independent of the locking mechanism,
    selective switching of the safety device between an active state and an inactive state, both of which are stable in order to be maintained in the absence of external actions, wherein in the active state the first locking block and the second locking block interfere with each other to prevent opening of the door, and in the inactive state, the first locking block and the second locking block do not interfere with one another in order to allow the door to be opened.
