Safe codes are a combination of locks used to seal the locker or safe. Through these locks, one can protect and secure one precious item. These locks are not easy to break by anyone as the company uses hardened steel to produce safe. If one is willing to get inside the safe by drilling through the door, it’s impossible because the safe can survive even through bullet attacks.
Types Of Locks And How To Change Code In Them
There are several locks, and different safe models like electronic or any other model contain additional safety, and no one can easily crack these locks. But if somehow, you forget your passcode, and then there are several steps for each kind of locking mechanism.
If you have time, you can go through the user manual section to find the “Change my safe code” section. But if you are in a bit of a hurry, then you can have a look through these manageable steps. We’ll explain to you four kinds of locking mechanisms and how you can reset safe code in them.
- NL Lock
- S&G Electronic Lock
- Dial Lock Mechanism
1. Nl Lock Combination
There are multiple steps to change the safe code in NL Lock Combination.
- At the start, you have to enter the old six-digit code, for new safes, mostly the preset factory code is (1-2-3-4-5-6). After entering the code, rotate the handle in the counterclockwise direction and pull the handle to unlock the safe’s door. Keeping the door open, rotate the handle in the clockwise direction so you could see the bolts on the door.
- You must hear (1) long beep after the correct code entry.
- After finding the bolts, hold the “0” number button by pressing it tightly so you would be able to hear (2) beeps.
- Enter the pre-existing code again, which was (1-2-3-4-5-6). You will hear (2) beeps again after the code.
- Think about the new six-digit code and enter your desired safe code following two beeps. You will hear (2) beeps after the new code.
- For confirmation, you must enter the latest six-digit code. Once again, you will find (2) beeps.
- If your old code is still working, you might hear (1) a long beep.
- Keeping the safe door open, test your new code combination to ensure programming.
2. S&G Electronic Lock
Resetting the code in S&G Electronic Lock can be tricky, so you must carefully read the instructions before proceeding.
- In the beginning, you have to enter the old six-digit code, for new safes, mostly the preset factory code is (1-2-3-4-5-6). After entering the code, rotate the handle in the counterclockwise direction and pull the handle to unlock the safe’s door. Keeping the door open, rotate the handle in the clockwise direction so you could see the bolts on the door.
- You must hear (1) long beep if you have entered the correct code.
- Click the (7) number and then the (4) number and then press the ‘*’ sign.
- Enter the pre-existing code again, which was (1-2-3-4-5-6), and then click the number sign (#). After this important step, you will hear (3) beeps.
- After finding the (3) beeps, click (1) number and then directly click the big dot key (*).
- Think about the new six-digit code and enter your desired safe code, you’ll get (3) beeps.
- For confirmation, you must enter the latest six-digit code. One more time, you’re going to find (3) beeps.
- By holding your door open, you can test your new code combination to ensure programming. After the testing, if the old code is still working, you will hear a long beep.
3. Dial Lock Mechanism
These are old-fashioned locks and do not usually come with new designs. There are several steps for unlocking these dials mechanisms.
- When you buy the safe for the first time, it’s closed on the business side. You need to enter the default combination code to open the safe. Factories typically use (1-2-3-4) as the default code.
- After you buy it, you will find the code slip that has the right combination you will use to open the safe. You need to memorize this key and burn it down so that no one else can enter the safe without your permission.
- This dial mechanism lock safe contains four wheels used to open the tool. Switch the dial in the clockwise direction for the first code number. Make sure all the numbers fall in the middle of the wheel.
- After entering the first digit, rotate the dial until the second number is right. You must obey the valid combination code. Ensure the second number follows the first number and therefore lands in the middle of the dual wheel.
- If you have the second code right, rotate the third dial in the clockwise direction and, much like the previous digits, land the third dial in the middle of the third wheel.
- After having all the numbers in the right order, at the top, rotate the last and fourth wheels in the clockwise direction. Keep spinning the wheel before you get the correct number of combinations secured. Make sure it’s the same as the other numbers; the last one even lands in the middle of the fourth wheel.
We have explained all the locking mechanisms so you can follow these essential steps to reset the safe code of your Combination Safe. Don’t forget to carefully read these instructions because you might have to repeat steps repeatedly if you mistakenly type the code. It would be great if you don’t share your safe code with anyone or else you will lose your belongings. Was this guide helpful to you in any way? We will wait for your feedback. Take care. See you
