Lockable battery door
In order to support teachers in keeping their students safe, the battery door on Edison robots features an optional locking mechanism. You do not need the door to be locked in order to use the robot. All Edison robots are packaged with the door in the ‘unlocked’ position.

Having trouble opening or closing the door?
In order for the locking mechanism to work properly, the battery door on the Edison robot needs to clip into place tightly. This fit can be extra tight on brand-new robots.
You may find it easier to use a flat-head screwdriver or a similar object to help you the first few times you open or close the battery door on a brand-new robot. The door clip will gradually loosen with use and become easier to open, however, the locking mechanism will continue to work even after the side clips loosen.
