You might wish to update the combination on your safe lock at some point. This could be due to one or more of the following factors:
You're worried that someone, perhaps one of your children, has figured out your password.
You've sacked or let go an employee who knows the combination to your safe.
You've forgotten your password.
The combination is difficult to remember or is no longer meaningful to you.
You’re getting divorced and no longer want your spouse to have access to your firearms.
You can alter the combination on your safe's lock. Whether you have a mechanical or electronic lock, however, will determine the path you must take to complete the task.
Some safes have a mechanical safe lock that requires you to input your code by turning a dial. Because you'll need your lock's change key to alter the code on this type of lock, it can be a little complicated. If you've misplaced your key or never had one, you'll need to contact your safe dealer or hire a professional locksmith to alter the code for you.
The owner's manual for your safe should include thorough instructions on how to alter the combination on your dial lock. If you're not sure you know what you're doing, don't try to make a change on your own. It's usually best to seek advice from an expert first. If you decide to alter your combination, do it with your safe door open to avoid being locked out if you make a mistake.
In comparison to a mechanical lock, changing the combination on a digital/electronic safe lock is simple. If you bought a safe from Liberty Safe that came with a SecuRam electronic lock, you probably went through the code-changing process when it arrived.
To change your combination code with the SecuRam TopLit or BackLit models, you’d simply:
Press the “0” key six times (you will then hear two beeps)
Enter your existing six-digit code (you should then hear two beeps)
Enter your new six-digit code (you will hear one beep)
Re-enter your new six-digit code (you will hear one more beep)
If you have one of those safe locks, changing the combination code is as simple as that! If you use a ProLogic L01 electronic safe lock, the process is considerably easier because the display screen will guide you through each step; just make sure you have your Super Code or Manager Code handy.
Electronic locks are made to be incredibly easy to use. The guarantee on an electronic lock is not void if the code is changed.
If you're shopping for a safe or your existing safe is equipped with a mechanical lock, upgrading to an electronic lock will make changing your combination a snap.
