How to Change the Battery
- Repeated LED flashing and beeping during an opening indicates that the battery is low and needs immediate replacement.
- Uses one (1) 9-volt alkaline battery only. The replacement of batteries at least once annually is recommended.
If battery is depleted and will not allow lock to open, follow instructions below. Lock contains a non-volatile memory, even with batteries removed the lock will retain all programming.
TO CHANGE BATTERY:
- Slide the keypad housing up and carefully pull away from mounting surface to expose battery compartment.
- Remove the old 9-Volt alkaline battery.
- Remove the connector by unsnapping it from the two terminals on the top of the battery.
- Replace with NEW 9-Volt alkaline battery. CAUTION! Hold onto battery terminal connector to avoid pulling the wires out of housing.
- Carefully position the keypad over the mounting screws and slide the keypad housing down. Ensure there are no wires or cables trapped between the input pad and the safe door. Pinched cables can result in a short circuit.
