If you are experiencing difficulty in opening your safe with an electronic lock or before changing the combination, please replace the batteries first. Doing so will save time and money. Even if you think your batteries are fine, replace them anyway. Please do not use batteries that are laying around in a drawer. Most times these do not have the power to unlock your lock and our customers have had many time delays and lost precious time…use brand new batteries.
Batteries are normally located under the keypad and accessed by pulling straight out, rotating or lifting up on the keypad.
The combination will not be erased by replacing the batteries,

If your lock is still causing problems for you or these instructions won’t help, please call us. We can help. Call us today.

Dial Index

On the dial ring (stationary part attached to the door) there are 2 marks or arrows, one at the 12 o’clock and the other one at the 11 o’clock position (to the left). Use the mark at 12 o’clock or top center.

1. Turn the dial counter clock-wise (to the left) at least 4 times to clear the dial. Continue going counter clock-wise and stop on your first number of your combination.

2. Turn the dial clock-wise (to the right) to your second number (this will not be a complete turn). Then still going clock-wise (right) go to your second number again. Continue turning clock-wise (right) and go to your second number for the third time (you will actually go past your second number 2 times and then stop on the third).

3. Turn the dial counter clock-wise to your third number (this will not be a complete turn). Continue turning counter clock-wise (to the left) and go to your third number (you will actually go past your third number once and then stop on the second).

4. Turn the dial clock-wise (to the right) until the dial stops at around 90 ~ 95. The dial will completely stop and will not turn any further. Then you can turn the handle and open the safe.
