Lagard Basic Electronic Lock Instructions

This lock takes one "AA" battery, which can be changed on the outside of the safe, without opening the door. Changing the combination is simple and fast. Opening the safe is quick and convenient.

Lagard LG Basic is an electronic digital lock that will retrofit for a mechanical lock on most safes. It comes in satin, chrome, or brass colors, and it opens as easy as pushing six numbers. The combination is easy to change by the user and can be changed in a matter of minutes. It has a "wrong try" penalty that kicks in after multiple tries at opening the safe with the wrong combination. Featuring security and reliability at an economical cost, the Lagard Basic electronic digital lock offers convenience as well.

  • Six digit pushbutton combination
  • Available in satin, chrome, or brass
  • Underwriters Laboratory listed lock
  • Low profile is good for retrofitting onto wall safes and other tight fitting safes where a standard dial would protrude out too far.

Hi, my name is John Dean. I'm with Dean Safe. I want to show you, and introduce you to the LaGard LG Basic lock. This is an immensely popular lock.

It's a high-security digital lock and I want to show you three things: how to open it, how to change the combination, and how to replace the batteries. It will only take a second to do all three.

First we will open it, I have this set to one, two, three, four, five, six. And there it is, the safe is open. It is that simple.

Now, in order to change the combination, it is always recommended that you throw the bolts out, and we're going to hit six zeros (000000), then your existing combination, you already know what that is, and new combination, the new combination, we have to input it two times, so we are going to do this. 0,0,0,0,0,0(Six zeros) That wakes it up into the change mode. You put in the old combination: one, two, three, four, five, six. Wait a half a heartbeat, then you put in the new one. Six, five, four, three, two, one, twice, six, five, four, three, two, one. Now, it's complete. Well, now we will give it a test. Six, five, four, three, two, one. Works great. Close it up and you're done.

Now changing the batteries is just about that simple. On the LG basic they made a couple of different configurations. First thing you do, is you look down below see if there's a little door, a little plastic door there. If there is a door there, pull it out and a nine-volt battery will drop into your hand.

This one's a little bit different, with this one you just push it up slightly, and there's your nine volt battery, you put in a new nine volt it comes out real easy, it is not attached in there hard, you put in a new nine volt and you just put it back on the safe. There are two little keyed areas. There you go.

There is also a time out penalty. What makes this a high security lock is, if somebody pushes the incorrect combination three times, on the fourth time it's in lockout for fifteen minutes. So it takes forever to try and manipulate a lock like this.

Another thing to remember is, all the brains
on this thing, are on the inside, this is merely a battery holder and keypad, so if a burglar comes along, and pulls this off, and tries to attach another one, which is hard to do.

But, it won't work, it's like pulling the keyboard off your computer, and plugging it into somebody else's keyboard, and thinking that your password will work on their machine, it just doesn't work that way. These are excellent locks, we've had years and years of trouble free service.

I usually wait until the battery dies, before I put a new battery in it, which is about five to six years but we recommend you do it every other year at the least. Always use an alkaline battery, a high-quality alkaline battery.

That is all you need to know, thank you very much.
