To enter your personal security code you will need to follow the steps listed below:
1. After opening the electronic safe (with the preset factory code of 1 – 5 – 9 – #) locate the small red reset button on the inside of the door near the hinge.
2. Press the red reset button and then release it; you will hear a beep. A yellow light on the faceplate will activate and stay on for a period of time while you enter your personal security code. You can only enter the code while the yellow light is illuminated.
With the door open and the yellow light activated, enter your 3 – 8 digit code. Confirm your code by pressing the symbol ∗ on the keypad. Before closing the door, enter your code followed by the # symbol to be sure that it releases the handle and allows you to turn it. You should see the live action bolts retract.
If the code fails, go through steps 1 and 2 again. If the code works successfully, record your combination number. If you write down your combination you must keep this information in a secure place, away from children, and not inside the safe. You should then close and lock the door.
NOTE: DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW SECURITY CODE WORKS CORRECTLY.
If an incorrect code is entered 3 times, the safe will automatically lockout for 15 seconds. If an incorrect code is entered 2 additional times, the safe will not allow any other codes to be entered for 5 minutes.
NOTE: If you press the wrong number while entering a security code, you can press “∗” to erase that entered number.
