    Written Out Instructions Below:

    STEP 1: Installing a Battery

    Use a brand new Duracell Coppertop 9-Volt Battery expiring at least 5 years in the future.

    WHY THIS BATTERYBecause this battery has the highest amperage output that is needed to operate the safe lock and open the door of the safe.

    • The battery compartment is located on the bottom side of the keypad
    • Simply slide open the compartment door and pull out the battery connector
    • Hook up a Duracell Coppertop 9-Volt battery to the battery connector with the + and - lined up
    • Push the connected battery back up into the compartment & slide the door shut

    STEP 2: Changing the Default Code to your own Personal 6-Digit Code

    NOTE:The following instructions are for changing the combination for the first time from the set default combination (1-2-3-4-5-6).Before you start this process make sure you know the 6-digit code you will set your safe to so the lock doesn't time out while you are setting your code.

    • Enter default code to unlock the safe: 1-2-3-4-5-6
    • Open the door and extend the bolts
    • Press and HOLD [0] on keypad until double beep. (LED light will remain on during next steps)
    • Enter DEFAULT code: 1-2-3-4-5-6 [double beep]
    • Enter NEW personalized 6-digit code [double beep]
    • Re-Enter NEW personalized 6-digit code [double beep]
    • Your new code has been successfully set

    IMPORTANT: Make sure you test your new code several times with the door open before closing the safe to ensure your new code was set properly.


    Replacing an Existing 6-Digit User Code:

    • Enter existing 6-digit user code to unlock the safe
    • Open the door and extend the bolts
    • Press and HOLD [0] on keypad until double beep. (LED light will remain on during next steps)
    • Enter existing 6-digit user code
    • Enter NEW 6-digit user code [double beep]
    • Re-Enter NEW 6-digit user code [double beep]
    • Your new code has been successfully set

    IMPORTANT: Test new code several times before closing the door


    TROUBLESHOOTING

    • LOW BATTERY: A series of beeps indicate that the battery is weak and must be replaced.
    • LOCKOUT MODE: If the wrong code is entered 4 times in a row, the lock will go into lockout mode - where it will constantly beep and flash for 5 minutes. Simply wait 5 minutes until the beeping/flashing stop and try again.NOTE: Removing the battery will only pause this 5 minute timer. The battery must be connect the whole 5 minutes.
