SELECTING A LOCATION

Your security safe should be installed in an isolated, dry and secure area. For greater security the safe must be fastened to solid surfaces. Ideally the safe would be installed to both a wall and permanent shelf.

SECURING THE SAFE

Secure the safe to the wall and permanent shelf using the holes and hardware provided. Mark the holes to be used. Drill the appropriate diameter and depth of pilot holes depending on the type of hardware being used and the type of mounting surface. Source the safe with the fasteners.

NOTE: The safe needs to be upright and right side up or the locking mechanism won’t work.

ELECTRONIC SAFES

To open an electronic safe the first time, press the following numbers/letters on the electronic keypad –159B. (These numbers are preset. You should change the code as soon as possible after opening the safe to insure proper security). After you have entered the factory set code, you will need to turn the knob on the faceplate to open the door. You will have 5 seconds to turn the knob before the locking mechanism is reactivated.

Warning: Batteries of any other specification or rechargeable batteries are prohibited for use, or the electronic system will fail or even the mechanism inside will be burned.

ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE

To enter your own security code you will need to follow the steps listed below:

 

1.      After opening the electronic safe (with the pre-set factory code of 159B) locate the small red button on the
inside of the door near the hinge.

2.      Press the red button and then release it, you will hear a beep. DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW SECURITY CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED CORRECTLY.

3.      With the door open, enter your own personal security code, which can be 3- 8 digits long, and confirm your new code by pressing the letter “B” on the electronic touch pad. Before you close the door, try the new security code to make sure the lock release the knob so you can turn it and retract the live action locking bolts.

 

If the code fails, go through steps 1-3 again. If the code works successfully, then you should lock the safe. When you open the safe in the future enter the security code you have set followed by the letter “B” and turn the knob.

If the incorrect security code is entered 3 times you will have an automatic lockout for 20 seconds before you can try your code again. If the incorrect security code is entered 3 additional times there will be a 5- minute lockout before the code can be tried again.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT

This safe uses 4- AA batteries. Under normal use, batteries will last about 1 year. When the battery is low, a red light will come on warning you that the battery is low. To test the batteries, enter your security code. If the batteries are low the red light located in the middle of the top of the keypad will start to flash.

To replace the batteries, open the safe door with your security code and turn the knob. Push the batteries cover plate, which is located on the back of the door, and replace the old batteries.

 

YOU MUST PROGRAME YOUR SECURITY CODE AFTER YOU REPLACE THE BATTERIES. SEE STEPS 1- 3 UNDER “ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE”.

 

TROUBLE KEY

A “Trouble key” has been provided in case you forget or lose your security code. Remove the small central panel from the front of the faceplate. Insert the key and turn it counter clockwise. Then turn the knob on the door towards the right. This will manually open your safe. If you lose your key, you may purchase a replacement key by referencing the serial number located under the central panel by the lock.

MAINTENANCE FOR KEY AND ELECTRONIC SAFE

If the door of the safe starts to rub on the door frame, open the door per the instructions above. By the door hinges you will find a threaded stem. Use an Allen wrench to tighten the threaded stem. This will help realign the door and give you trouble free access to the contents of your safe.
