Swedish term or phrase: åverkansfritt

A door-locking device

Elektroniskt, mobilt dörrlås som monteras enkelt och ***åverkansfritt***

Normally, this would be something like "effectless" but that is completely wrong here of course

"Damage free" sounds like it was delivered "undamaged" which is wrong again;

Can anyone come up with a neat phrase of a couple of words?
